Delgado was activated from the 15-day disabled list yesterday after being out with a sprained ankle. To make room for him, the D-backs optioned infielder Jamie Romak to Triple A Reno where he will continue his great season for the Aces.

Romak, signed by Arizona last November 21st received ten at-bats with the team since being called up. He had three hits with an RBI and two runs scored. In his only start on August 12th, he went 2 for 5 as the D-backs dropped a 7-6 contest to the Philadelphia Phillies. Before his promotion on August 8th, Romak was having a huge campaign for Reno. He leads the the Aces in home runs with 23 and RBI’s with 90. Those numbers both rank second among all Pacific Coast League hitters. He was named a PCL All-Star and participated in the Triple A Home Run Derby.
The 29-year old Romak was taken by the Atlanta Braves in the fourth round of the 2003 Draft but did not make his Major League debut until May 28th, 2014 while with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He has also spent time in the organizations of the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Kansas City Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals. Look for him to return to the Majors once rosters are expanded on September 1st.
