Former Mets Delgado, Pressley suspended

NEW YORK – Wilson Delgado and Josh Pressley became the latest former Mets to violate minor league baseball's steroid policy, as both players were hit with 15-game suspensions, the Associated Press reported Friday.

Delgado, 32, played in 42 games for the Mets in 2004, filling in when regular shortstop Jose Reyes spent much of the latter part of the year on the disabled list.

A .251 career hitter, Delgado batted .292 with two homers and 13 RBI in 130 at-bats with New York. He is currently playing with Triple-A Albuquerque in the Florida Marlins farm system.

Pressley, 25, spent the last two seasons in the Mets farm system, playing for St. Lucie, Binghamton and Norfolk. A first baseman, Pressley played all of last year at Binghamton, hitting .300 with three homers and 62 RBI in 101 games.

Pressley is currently playing for Double-A Wichita in the Kansas City Royals system.
