Carlos Delgado's hip is still sore.

Omar Minaya revealed that Delgado received a cortisone shot in the hip and will miss his third straight game.

It doesn't sound as if it's anything serious and only a matter of time before he returns to the lineup.

Some believe that Delgado's hip troubles can be attributed to his awful slump through the first half of last year, while the slugger himself denied injury.

It has been reported in the past that eventually the hip will need surgery.

Hopefully, he makes it through the remainder of this year and it has no ill effects on his swing....
