Delmonico left the game immediately. Saladino was pulled after the half inning for evaluation of a possible concussion.

"Saly is the head, so we're just checking it for concussion protocol," White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. "We just took him out because he was fuzzy.

"As far as Nicky, he just got extended {his left arm]. It didn't pop, it didn't do anything, just got it extended and just jammed it a little bit. Both are going to be day-to-day. We'll see where they are at tomorrow. I can't give you anything else other than that."

Delmonico, who is projected to be the White Sox starting left fielder, will be further evaluated Monday. He entered the game with five doubles, tied for the Cactus League lead.

Utility player Saladino is hitting .409 in 11 games, going 9-for-22 with a double and home run.
