Carlos Delgado Placed on Disabled List for Pawtucket Red Sox

The Red Sox signed Carlos Delgado to help fill the void that Kevin Youkilis left due to injury. It didn't take long for Delgado to get injured himself.

The 38-year-old first baseman was placed on the PawSox' seven-day disabled list due to soreness in his side, Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced prior to Saturday night's game against the Blue Jays.

Francona specified that the pain was in Delgado's left side, which is not the side of his surgically repaired hip.

Delgado, thought to be used as a platoon option at first base with Mike Lowell, has played in five games for Triple-A Pawtucket, in which he batted .231 on three singles in 13 at-bats. He struck out six times and drove in two runs.
