PawSox's Carlos Delgado lands on DL

BOSTON -- Even the minor leaguers in the Boston Red Sox organization are landing on the disabled list.

Veteran Carlos Delgado has been placed on the seven-day DL with soreness in his non-surgically repaired left hip.

The 38-year-old DH/infielder signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox on Aug. 7 and was assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket, but has missed the past few games due to the discomfort. He last played for the PawSox on Aug. 15 and had to leave the game with a sore lower back.

Delgado, who played in 2,035 major league games in 17 seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays, Florida Marlins and New York Mets, has not appeared in a big league game since May 10, 2009. He's had two surgeries on his right hip.
