Delgado Hopes To Return By Spring Training

MONDAY, 7:41pm: Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports that Delgado has not received any offers yet (on Twitter). He'll likely have to prove he's healthy before teams show interest.

SUNDAY, 9:03pm: Veteran slugger Carlos Delgado is still recovering from surgery on his left hip but hopes to return to the majors this year, writes Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com.  The 38-year-old has not played in a Major League game since May 10, 2009.

"If I am healthy, I will find a way," said Delgado, who is 27 home runs shy of reaching 500. "I know how to play. I don't want to retire. The reason why I put myself through three surgeries in 18 months is because I want to play. Otherwise, I would have just hung it up."

Delgado went under the knife last September for the third hip surgery of his career.  A month prior to that he signed a minor league deal with the BoSox that would have paid him a prorated portion of $3MM upon reaching the majors.

Before he signed with Boston, the White Sox, Rockies, and Mariners were among the clubs known to have interest.  The two-time All-Star said last November that he was still waiting for a call from a major league club and had no preference as to where he signs.
