Mets "very interested" in Carlos Delgado is reporting that the Mets are very interested in free agent first baseman Carlos Delgado

Delgado was limited to just 26 games in 2009 before undergoing season-ending right hip surgery in May, but he still finished batting .298 with a .393 on-base percentage, four home runs and 23 RBIs. In his last full season in '08, the 37-year-old first baseman batted .271 with 38 homers and 115 RBIs. 

The Mets will only consider Delgado on an incentive-laden contract, perhaps a base salary around 1-1.5 million dollars with in-season performance bonuses. Otherwise, they will stick with David Murphy, who hit .266 last season.

Delgado is currently playing in the Puerto Rican Winter League.
