BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 DeLome was considered a five-tool player when the Astros plucked him out of Lamar University in the fifth round of the 2007 draft. However, he has not been able to convert his raw ability into consistent production. He hits some home runs and steals some bases, but a total lack of plate discipline has undercut his chances to become a real prospect. DeLome has plenty of range and a strong arm in the outfield but suffers from the occasional lapse in concentration that causes him to drop a routine fly ball. His ability is something to dream on, but that's all it will be until he does something about that hideous strikeout-to-walk ratio.
2010 In an organization short on prospects, somebody has to get hung with the label, lest people just wander out into the Texas sun and wait until the absence of air conditioning kills them. Delome does more than his part as far as contributing his name to the life-saving conversation—he has some tools, with a strong arm, blazing speed, and tremendous bat speed. The jump to Double-A was hard on him, however, as pitchers exploited his long swing and pull-happiness. He won't wind up as a center fielder, so the bat has to come around for him to steer the conversation towards "prospect in any organization."
2009 DeLome, the Astros' fifth-round pick in 2007, was their highest pick who actually signed. They didn't have a #1 or a #2, and their #3 and #4 guys both rejected the strict slot money offered and went to college. He's an athlete, not a ballplayer; he doesn't read the ball well, leading to strikeouts at the plate and bad routes in the field, but make a mistake, and he can crush it.
2008 Last year, the Astros lost their top two draft picks to free-agent compensation. On Drayton McLane's orders, they toed the line on signing bonuses to their third- and fourth-round picks. All of which made DeLome, their fifth-round selection, the prize of their 2007 draft class. He's a toolsy outfielder with good speed and some lefty pop whose stats mean nothing given his combination of age and level.
