08:23 AM ET 02.07 | Carlos Delgado, recovering from surgery on his left hip, says it's only a matter of time before he returns to a major league lineup. Exactly how much time is still to be determined. "If I am healthy, I will find a way," said Delgado on Sunday while visiting the Carlos Beltran Baseball Academy. ... "I would say within the next couple of weeks I will have a better idea of when I'm going to be ready because we are going to start sprinting a little bit and I'm going to take batting practice a little bit more often. Right now, it's every other day or every two days just because you just go gradually into it." Delgado, who needs 27 home runs to reach the 500-home run mark, is hopeful his job search can begin in earnest next month.

It's a tough market for defensively challenged, aged DHers.

Carlos, if you just sat in fron of the tube all last year then no one will want you.

He's gonna have a hell of a time trying to get signed. Just ask Jermaine Dye.

February 7, 2011  07:00 PM ET

yes but, dye is demanding a major league deal...dye and most of the other aren't willing to sign a minor league contract...if carlos will accept a minor league contract, he'll get his chance
