Can Delmonico play 1st? Yes.

Can he play it well? Not really- and the Sox must think the same thing- he's a great guy, with a decent bat who couldn't handle 3rd base- they have put him completely in the outfield to sink or swim- with a total ~25 appearances at 1st since 2017.



Palka and/or Delmonico are fill ins, maybe 20 games. And they are not filling in for a gold glove 1st baseman.
