Randall Delgado P ARI 3 Months

Randall Delgado hit the showers early on Thursday against the Giants after allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over 3 1/3 innings without striking out a batter.

With Josh Collmenter's return to the rotation looming, this may have been Delgado's last start in awhile. He can't say he wasn't given an opportunity, and the bullpen might be a better fit at the moment; Delgado certainly has the stuff for it, despite his shoddy results this year. If he somehow hangs onto his spot through one more turn in the rotation, Delgado and his 10.13 ERA and 2.88 WHIP would get the Mets on Tuesday.

Randall Delgado allowed two runs in four innings during Thursday's start against the Reds.

Delgado surrendered seven hits in total while walking one and striking out three. As the D'Backs demoted Archie Bradley to Triple-A, the fifth spot in the rotation appears to be Delgado's, though no announcement has been made yet. Though Delgado showed good control last season in 116 1/3 innings, he was very homer-prone and wasn't anything special in the strikeout department.

Randall Delgado was hit around in Tuesday's start against the Padres, allowing four runs and failing to make it out of the fourth inning.

Delgado's four runs came on five hits and a walk. Carlos Quentin took him deep in the second and Yonder Alonso went yard in the third. Delgado will contribute out of the bullpen but can and likely will be used as an emergency starter as well.

Randall Delgado held the Dodgers to one run on four hits over 3 2/3 innings Thursday.

He struck out a pair and didn't walk anyone. Delgado was removed after retiring the first two batters in the fourth and then watched RJ Hively serve up a home run to the first batter he faced to tie the game. The Bronson Arroyo signing pushed Delgado to the bullpen, but he's a nice insurance policy to have around.

Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said Sunday that Randall Delgado will likely make the team as a reliever if he doesn't crack the rotation.

Barring injury, Delgado will no longer be part of the rotation following the Bronson Arroyo signing. However, he's out of options and the D'Backs don't want to lose him, so they'll keep him around as a reliever. Given that the fragile Brandon McCarthy is part of Arizona's starting five, it wouldn't be a surprise if Delgado winds up making plenty of starts.

Randall Delgado was rocked for six runs on seven hits over five innings in a loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

The right-hander struck out four and didn't walk a batter, but San Diego hit him hard. Homers by Jedd Gyorko and Tommy Medica accounted for half of the Friars' runs off Delgado. It was an unfortunate close to a decent season for Delgado, who had worked his first career shutout against San Diego earlier this year. The right-hander went 5-7 with a 4.26 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 116 1/3 innings in 2013.

Randall Delgado allowed two runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Friday.

Delgado gave up three hits and two walks while failing to strike out a batter. His only mistake was a two-run homer by opposing pitcher Jhoulys Chacin in the third inning, but it was enough to cost him a chance at the win. He'll finish his season with a start against the Padres next week in San Diego.

Randall Delgado pitched well in Sunday's victory over the Rockies, allowing just two runs on five hits over his six innings of work.

Delgado fanned three while issuing one free pass on the afternoon. The only blemish on his outing was a two-run homer off the bat of Charlie Cluberson in the fifth inning. It was a nice bounceback effort from Delgado after he was clobbered by the Dodgers on Monday. He'll carry a 3.98 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 75/21 K/BB ratio into Friday's rematch against these same Rockies in Colorado.

Randall Delgado was blasted for five runs in just 2 2/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Dodgers.

Arizona manager Kirk Gibson didn't have much of a choice. The Dodgers launched four homers off Delgado, including two from Juan Uribe (who finished with three). Delgado has allowed 13 homers in his last eight starts. Keeping the ball in the park is a necessity on Sunday against the Rockies in Arizona.

Randall Delgado pitched seven innings of three-run ball Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Delgado has kept the Diamondbacks in nearly every game he's pitched, but he hasn't been well rewarded for it. They won in extra innings today to move to 10-5 in his starts. Delgado, though, has a 4-5 record and a 3.69 ERA.
