Carlos Delgado made his long-awaited debut tonight in the Puerto Rican Winter League, going 1-for-4 while batting fourth as the designated hitter for Gigantes de Carolina.
That’s good enough for me. Sign him.
I don’t want a singles hitter batting cleanup for the Orioles.
We’ll judge him later in the month. More important, the Orioles will do so after scouting him.
Lou Montanez’s team, Criollos de Caguas, provided the opposition, but he hasn’t played since Dec. 29. Don’t ask me why because I couldn’t tell you.
If you’re reading, Lou, please give me a call.
