The final word, from the Toronto Star. Trade=hoax and the knee doesn't sound so bad that he won't be hitting (not like he was hitting before this injury):
A few moments of uncertainty set in during the club's entertaining 10 inning, 6-5 win when ESPN Radio reported Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi had completed a trade in principle that would send superstar slugger Carlos Delgado to the Los Angeles Dodgers for outfielder Juan Encarnacion and left-handed pitching prospect Brian Morris.
"I don't know where it (report) came from," Ricciardi said about the report, which was flatly denied in Toronto and even surprised the Dodgers front office last night.
Delgado left after the third inning with a knee problem and was not available for comment after the game, which saw the Jays overcome a 5-4 deficit in the eighth and win it on one of the more unusual plays to be seen at SkyDome this season.
"It's the knee that bothered him before," Jays manager Carlos Tosca said of Delgado's right knee, which was repaired with arthroscopic surgery last fall.
"He said he could hit, but he couldn't run and field his position, which is a lot for him to say that. The worst case scenario is that he'll be the DH Wednesday.'' The Jays have today off.
