Delgado to Have Surgery; May Miss Rest of Season

The New York Times Bats Blog—May 18, 2009

The Mets announced Monday that Carlos Delgado would have surgery Tuesday at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. He is expected to miss at least three months and probably the rest of the season.

The Metsí medical director, David Altchek, and the teamís physician, Struan Coleman, determined that Delgado had an impingement of his right hip, a bone spur and a torn labrum. Coleman will perform arthroscopic surgery to remove the bone spur and to repair the torn labrum.
