Note: Delgado Projects to be a Type B Free Agent

John Ricco told reporters yesterday that Carlos Delgado returned from St. Lucie to be re-examined by doctors in New York.

He will remain inactive for two weeks, before resuming baseball activities.

i’d think delgado had been working to come back as much for the Mets as he was for himself, since he’s going to be a free agent at the end of this season… much like i wrote about with wagner yesterday, Eddie Bajek and MLB Trade Rumors predict delgado will be a Type B free agent… meaning, if he’s offered arbitration by the Mets, they can net a compensatory draft pick if delgado leaves to sign with a new team

…in other words, there will be a lot less questions for all sides involved if delgado can at least get back on the field this season and start hitting again, which now seems unlikely given this recent set back…
