Diamondbacks: Randall Delgado Impressive Outing


Like many this spring, Randall Delgado is fighting hard for a spot in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ starting rotation. Today, Delgado really made a strong case for himself in his outing against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Delgado was able to pitch three innings, where he gave up no runs, no hits and struck out five batters. At one point, Delgado was able to strike out Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and David Freese consecutively. This should be a welcome sign for manager Chip Hale and the rest of the D-Backs coaching staff. It also has grabbed the attention of some of the local media.

Last year, Delgado was mainly a bullpen piece, but made four starts. In 47 total games, Delgado went 4-4 with a 4.87 ERA. In 77.2 innings pitched, Delgado gave up 42 earned runs. His career ERA is 4.28.

Delgado will look to continue his hot start in this year’s spring training. Delgado has thrown five scoreless innings this spring, giving up no runs and striking out seven batters. The Diamondbacks coaching staff will surely be keeping a very close eye on the rest of Delgado’s outings this spring training.
