Steve Popper updates up with news that Carlos Delgado has begun running – sort of.
So far the workout consisted of one dash at half-speed about 40 feet, then jogging backwards. And that looked about how he usually makes his way around the field. But after that one lap, he spotted one of the Cardinals - can't recognize him from up here - and walked out to chat, where he still is while the strength coach waits for him.
But seriously, it is a step in the right direction, especially for a player in the walk-year of his contract. He will be making every effort to return and show teams (maybe even the Mets) that he can still hit.
He’s entirely built for an AL team as a DH now, with occasional starts at first, but some power-starved NL teams may also take a look.
