Carlos Delgado recently underwent another hip surgery, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, but he stills plans on attempting a comeback, according to his agent David Sloane.

The 37-year-old first baseman recently felt a twinge in his hip after playing winter ball in his native Puerto Rico to mixed reviews. He is expected to be out of action for around four months.

Says Sloane:

“He wanted to play every day. He felt, despite the time it would take,
it was a better option for him to be the Carlos Delgado of old instead
of an old Carlos Delgado.”

Delgado is currently sixth among active players with 473 home runs. It’d be a shame for his career to end this way.
