Carlos Delgado is coming back, but who wants him?

May 17, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

Carlos Delgado was interviewed by the Puerto Rican paper El Nuevo Dia, and said that he hopes to return to action in July.  He’s not totally deluded about his chances — he just had his second hip operation in less than a year — but he thinks he can still contribute in a limited role.

Based on what we were hearing about his mobility this winter, I’d guess that fielding is right out, so DH is probably his only chance.  But what team is going to want to sign an old and very likely ineffective guy to be its designated hitter?

Aside from the Mariners anyway, who have like three guys who fit that description.

    The funny old guy on WFAN on weekends after 6PM is the only time I turn that station on because he’s a Metropolitans fan but makes fun of them all the time. He (and I) were ROFLMAO when Carl from Astoria called in to say that he’s awaiting Delgado’s return to bring some leadership to the team.
