Boston Native One Step from the Show


West Roxbury native Manny Delcarmen earned a promotion to AAA Pawtucket late last night. Delcarmen is now one step away from realizing his lifelong dream of playing for his hometown Boston Red Sox. In 2005, Delcarmen has logged 39 innings in a total of 31 games. He is 4-4 with a 3.23 ERA, and a 49/20 K/BB ratio.

The Red Sox drafted Delcarmen in the second round of the 2000 draft, out of West Roxbury High School. He was the Sox' second draft pick, after Phil Dumatrait, however with this promotion, Delcarmen becomes the first of the two to reach AAA. Delcarmen spent all of last year with Sarasota of the Florida State League, after undergoing Tommy John surgery in May of 2003. After starting in 53 of his 60 career appearances entering 2005, Delcarmen made the transition to the bullpen this year. After some early season struggles, Delcarmen has adjusted well to the bullpen, leading the Sox to promote him to Pawtucket.
