Delgado takes move to 'pen in stride

MLB.com

PHOENIX -- If D-backs right-hander Randall Delgado is upset about the move from the starting rotation to the bullpen, he isn't showing it.

"You have to get warm and get ready to get in the game faster, but it's fine and that's the only real difference," Delgado said. "I wasn't pitching well as a starter, and they think I'll do better in this role. I'll just keep working hard and get outs."

Delgado has struggled this season. He lasted just 3 1/3 innings in his start Thursday night and pitched only four innings against the Rockies in the previous start.

"There's not much I can do but work and try to get better," he said.
