Carlos Delgado goes 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Triple-A debut

Aug 10, 2010, 11:14 AM EDT

Signed to a minor-league contract by the Red Sox last week, Carlos Delgado made his Triple-A debut last night and went 0-for-3 with a strikeout.
Some interesting notes from his first Triple-A game since 2004 …
* Pawtucket was playing the Yankees’ affiliate and lost on a walk-off homer by stud prospect Jesus Montero.
* Delgado faced left-hander Kei Igawa for all three of his at-bats.
* According to the Providence Journal he hit a fly out that reached the warning track.
* Delgado batted cleanup and played designated hitter before being removed for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning.
* Former big leaguer Rich Hill started for the PawSox, tossing five shutout innings.
* And, based on the reported terms of his contract, Delgado earned about $700.

    According to the pbp for the PawSox, the ball went to the wall and was caught only by a leaping catch by the RF.

    I think Delgado makes $20k/month while in the minors, then makes a prorated portion of $3mm if he is called up. The $700k assumes he is called up on ~ August 20th (about 23% left in the year).

    Did a hell of a lot better than that Youkilis bum. He’s so bad they won’t even let him bat for the rest of the season.

    That says it all , if you can’t hit Kei Igawa your finished as a ball player . Igawa is the worst pitcher to come out of Asia . Thank God his contract with the Yankees ends this year .
