Delgado Still Wants To Play This Year

9:50pm: Delgado refused to speculate if he could play in 2011 if he were to miss all of this season, writes Mike Puma of the New York Post.

6:09pm: Carlos Delgado says that he still wants to play this year, pending rehab, tweets Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.  The free agent slugger also said that he never got an offer from the Mets before his second surgery. 

As David Lennon of Newsday (via Twitter) points out, Delgado could still be an option for the Mets later on in the season.  Back in February the 37-year-old said that he could envision himself signing on with a club mid-year.

The first baseman first underwent surgery for a torn labrum of the hip in May of 2009 and was sidelined for the remainder of the season.  He enjoyed a successful and healthy season in 2008 when he slugged .271/.353/.518 with 38 HRs.
