With Carlos Delgado being sent to New York for an MRI on his sore right hip, the Mets may be in need of first base help.
Delgado hurt the same hip toward the end of last season, missing 2 1/2 weeks during the stretch run. The Mets say it’s not serious this time but Delgado is starting to show signs that he’s becoming old before his time. He may not be able to bounce back as quickly as he once did.
Now the Mets might be another potential destination for Scott Hatteberg if Joey Votto shoves him out of Cincinnati.
