Carlos Juan Delgado Hernández (born June 25, 1972) is a former MLB player. With over 450 home runs, he holds the all-time home run and RBI records among Puerto Rican players.
On November 23,2005 the Florida Marlins traded Delgado and the $7 million remaining on his contract to the Mets for Mike Jacobs,Yusmeiro Petit and for Grant Psomas.
In 2009 he became one of the players to be on the DL with a hip injury but he never made a return. He had the surgery for his bone spur and his torn labrum in his hip on May 18.
He also was the first player ever to hit a homerun at the Pepsi Porch.
He filed for free-agency on November 5. The Mets were going to re-sign him but they never could. Delgado said that if no team signs him he will retire from baseball.
Delgado was hoping to reach 500 homeruns for his career. If he had reached it he would be the second met to reach the milestone after Gary Sheffield did on April 17.
