Delgado allowed two runs on four hits and two walks, while striking out three, in just 1.2 innings Sunday against the Phillies.

Delgado has now yielded runs in three of his past four appearances. With Addison Reed moved out of the closer role for the D-Backs, Delgado could have been a candidate to pick up some saves, but he needs to pitch better than he has recently. He has a 3.44 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with 17 strikeouts in 18.1 innings on the season.

Delgado took the loss Saturday after giving up two runs on four hits, including a Justin Upton home run, in 2.2 innings, while striking out four.

This is the second time this season that Upton has victimized Delgado for a game-winning home run, but these were the first runs Delgado had allowed in five appearances. He has pitched well this year, posting a 2.35 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 14 strikeouts against four walks in 15.1 innings.

Delgado gave up the game winning home run to Justin Upton on Wednesday in a 3-2 loss to San Diego. He pitched two innings giving up one earned run on a hit and a walk. He didn't strike anyone out.

Delgado appeared in a second consecutive game for the D-Backs and it appears they are fully committed to turning him into a reliever at the back end of the bullpen. This was the first run he has allowed in five appearances and he has four strike outs against one walk to go along with a 1.69 ERA and 0.75 WHIP. He is still just 25, so if he takes to relieving he could be an option to close at some point in the future.

Delgado pitched a scoreless inning, giving up a hit and striking out one, Tuesday in a 7-6 win over the Giants.

Delgado pitched the seventh inning for the DBacks and it will be interesting to see whether he is used as a long reliever or whether this is the beginning of a transition to a late inning role for him. He was considered a future starter when he was acquired from Atlanta, but has yet to prove he can handle that role. If he became a setup man, he has the kind of stuff that would play up in that role and potentially could lead him to close one day.

Delgado is among the 14 candidates battling for a spot in the back of the Diamondbacks rotation this spring, the Arizona Republic reports.

Out of minor league options, Delgado figures to be on the Opening Day roster barring a trade elsewhere, but his role is unclear. Most likely, he'll remain a reliever, after starting that transition last season and striking out 24.7% of the batters he faced in that role. In the bullpen, Delgado added a slider last season, and he'll need to use that third offering effectively in order to push his way into the final stages of the competition for a starting role.

Delgado won't make his start Wednesday and will pitch out of the bullpen for the remainder of the season, the Arizona Republic's Nick Piecoro reports.

He has been replaced by Andrew Chafin, and while it's unlikely that many owners were counting on Delgado and his 5.48 ERA, this obviously significantly limits his value the rest of the way.

Delgado allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two in four innings in the Diamondbacks' 6-2 loss to the Giants on Thursday.

The start, his second since return to the rotation, was a step backward. After pitching a scoreless five innings last week, three runs in four innings doesn't look good. However, the 24-year-old will get another chance Wednesday against the Giants.

Delgado's return to the rotation worked out well Thursday, as he went five shutout innings, allowing just two hits while striking out two.

Hey, not bad at all for the guy's first start since April 10. He's scheduled to get another chance to impress next Thursday against the Giants.

Delgado will join the Diamondbacks' rotation starting Thursday in San Diego, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports.

Arizona will roll with a six-man rotation for potentially the remainder of the season, as Vidal Nuno and the rest of the Diamondbacks' starters will all be pushed back a day. Delgado has never had much success as a starter, and has a 5.85 ERA in 60 innings this season. The one glimmer of hope would be his 3.85 FIP, but that's significantly inflated by his unsustainable 25.8 percent K-rate, which is a byproduct of his stuff playing up out of the bullpen. Still, for those desperate for a starter, the matchup in San Diego could be beneficial.

Delgado achieved the rare feat of picking up a win and a loss Wednesday vs. the Indians. He suffered the loss in Game 1 of the doubleheader, then picked up the victory in the extra innings of Game 2.

Delgado's day might have gotten off to a rotten start after he surrendered a walk-off homer to Zach Walters, but his mates rewarded him for spinning a scoreless top of the 11th by scoring the go-ahead run in the bottom half of the frame. The odd daily stat line notwithstanding, Delgado should be viewed as untouchable in just about any fantasy format due to his 5.24 ERA and 1.35 WHIP.
