Randall Delgado P ARI 27 Days

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He has been replaced by Andrew Chafin, and while it's unlikely that many owners were counting on Delgado and his 5.48 ERA, this obviously significantly limits his value the rest of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

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.
