The Mets made it official today, by placing Carlos Delgado on the disabled list.

Jerry Manuel doesn't expect Delgado to return anytime soon and didn't sound optimistic about his return this season.
The Mets aren't attempting to dispel the surgery rumors or that he could miss anywhere from six weeks to the rest of the season, and now he's scheduled to see a specialist about the hip in the next few days.

“I am, that’s just the way I see it,” Manuel said. “He tried a number of things to get ready, to get some comfort, but could never find it. I don’t anticipate this being a 15-day thing in my opinion. I could be wrong. Hopefully I am wrong.”

“Right now we’re looking at it as a 15-day situation,” Bernazard said. “Once he goes to the doctor we’ll know a lot more.” source
