Delgado To Have Surgery

ed feverCorrespondent IMay 18, 2009

Based on the team's posturing, most of us knew this was going to happen. The Mets made it official today, when they announced that Carlos Delgado will undergo hip surgery.

It's believed the procedure will sideline Delgado between six to eight weeks, which, barring a setback, would bring him back around the All-Star break.

If the Mets do decide to bring someone in, they will need to find a player who could start at first for the season, but who could also get along with Delgado, so that a platoon situation would work...

"Carlos Delgado will have surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his right hip and remove a bone spur. The Mets made the announcement moments ago, but a team spokesman said the timetable for Delgado’s return is uncertain until after the arthroscopic procedure, which will be performed by Dr. Struan Coleman at the Hospital for Special Surgery."
