Career highlights and awards

Manuel "Manny" Delcarmen (born February 16, 1982, in Boston, Massachusetts) is a relief pitcher of Dominican descent in Major League Baseball who plays for the Boston Red Sox. He has been called "The Pride of Hyde Park".[1]

A native of the Hyde Park section of Boston, and a graduate of West Roxbury High School, Delcarmen was a second-round draft pick by Boston in 2000; he was the first draftee from a Boston public high school in 34 years, and made his debut with the Red Sox on July 27, 2005.

Beginning the season at Double-A Portland, he posted a 4-4 record with three saves and a 3.23 ERA in 31 games. After a promotion to Triple-A Pawtucket, he struck out 12 with a 3.00 ERA over nine innings.

In 2005, Delcarmen was called up to the major leagues for 10 games. He pitched 9 innings with a 3.00 ERA and 9 strikeouts.


2006 season

After starting the 2006 season back in Pawtucket, Delcarmen was recalled to the major leagues on April 22, 2006. On June 11, 2006, Delcarmen got his first major league win, pitching two innings against the Texas Rangers.

2007 season

Delcarmen was on the Red Sox's roster off and on for the 2007 season. He was recalled from Triple A Pawtucket on June 17, 2007 when relief pitcher Brendan Donnelly was placed on the disabled list. On July 23, Delcarmen finished out a 6-2 Red Sox victory over Cleveland with an inning and a third of scoreless relief, recording his first major league save. He finished the 2007 season with 44 innings in the majors and a 2.05 ERA.

2007/2008 offseason

After an intensive offseason workout regimen, Delcarmen dropped 15 pounds. Manager Terry Francona remarked that "[h]e’s lean and he’s looking really good."[2]

Scouting report

Delcarmen always dreamed of playing for the Sox. His career was on the fast track with a mid 90s fastball, and a great curveball - until he injured himself in May 2003. Delcarmen had Tommy John surgery, but returned to the mound a year later in May 2004. Post-surgery, Delcarmen's fastball may have actually gained velocity, as he has topped out in the high 90s. Delcarmen has decent control, with decent changeup and a very good curve which he uses as his out pitch.[3] Delcarmen recently moved to East Bridgewater, Massachusetts.
