Not using WAR is fine. You can use your regular offensive statistics such as OBP, SLG and OPS. 51st in OBP last season amongst outfielders and 40th in SLG%. Coco Crisp had a higher SLG% than Delmon Young.

Offensively Delmon is a starting caliber player. When you consider how bad he is defensively he isn't.
Eh. As I said, as a RF, I'm not overly concerned with his (lack of) defensive ability.
