All of the Mets beat reporters are writing that injured Mets first baseman Carlos Delgado suffered a strained oblique muscle while rehabbing in Florida from hip surgery. He won’t be able to perform any baseball activity for a couple of weeks.
This isn’t that big of a deal. The Mets have been without Delgado for most of the season and he won’t be here next season anyway. This is the last year of his contract and at 37 years old, the Mets really have no use for his services anymore.
Whether he can play again this season or not doesn’t make a difference to the Mets. But I’m sure that he’d like to show that he’s healthy enough to get a meager incentive-laden contract from someone in the offseason.
