FORT MYERS, Fla. — A blast from the past is looking for one more run with the Red Sox.

Manny Delcarmen, who last pitched in the major leagues in 2010, worked out for the Sox Tuesday morning at JetBlue Park in an attempt to latch out with his former organization as a minor-leaguer.

The 35-year-old Delcarmen spent 2016 pitching in the Mexican League after spending the two previous seasons with the Nationals’ Triple-A club.

The righty, who was taken in the second round of the 2000 draft by the Red Sox, left Boston after getting traded to Washington for Chris Balcom-Miller with a month to go in the 2010 campaign. Delcarmen’s best season came in 2009, when he appeared in 73 games for the Red Sox, totaling a 3.27 ERA.

Delcarmen spent the offseason working with former Red Sox trainer Mike Reinold, who also oversaw the workouts of Dodgers’ starter Rich Hill and Craig Breslow, who is in Twins camp on a minor-league deal. He still lives in Massachusetts, just 30 minutes from the home of the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox, McCoy Stadium.

During his showcase for the Red Sox, Delcarmen was throwing his fastball at 91-92 mph. After catching up with a few of his former coaches and teammates, the West Roxbury native drove to West Palm Beach to workout for the Nationals.
