The Mets have announced, that Carlos Delgado under went successful hip surgery and will be out 10 weeks.

Barring a set back, Delgado could return around August 1st, but what will the Mets do in the meantime?

Fernando Tatis has been an automatic out with runners in scoring position, Jeremy Reed looks very rusty at first and Dan Murphy hasn't even played the position, yet.

I don't think there's anyway around making a trade, hopefully they can find a player that will fit nicely when Delgado returns and won't cost them a ton in prospects.

Carlos Delgado had arthroscopic surgery Tuesday morning to repair the torn labrum and bone spur in his right hip. The Mets said they expect Delgado to return in approximately 10 weeks. source NY Times
