    Delgado will receive a PRP procedure on his injured right elbow Thursday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

    Delgado is dealing with a flexor strain and will undergo a PRP injection to help combat the injury. It's unlikely that Delgado will return to pitch this season, so he'll head into the offseason with a solid 3.59 ERA over 62.2 innings with the Diamondbacks this year.

Without knowing more about the injury, it's difficult to estimate how long the right fielder could be sidelined for, so he should simply be considered day-to-day for the time being.
