Carlos Delgado
Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe has confirmed that the Red Sox have signed Carlos Delgado to a minor-league contract. Delgado, who hasn't played since last season and is coming back from hip surgery, will work back into shape in the minors, and the Red Sox must call him up by September 1 or he becomes a free agent.

Benjamin said Delgado will make the prorated portion of a $3 million a year salary for his time in the majors. He also has bonuses for postseason MVP awards.

Delgado will platoon with Mike Lowell at first base for Boston, which this week lost Kevin Youkilis for the year with a thumb injury.

-- David Andriesen

UPDATE: In his pregame meeting with reporters, manager Terry Francona confirmed the Delgado signing but said he will still consider Lowell the starting first baseman, and any new additions will"complement him." Delgado will report to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday to work out, and hopes to begin playing within the week.
