Delgado began the 2011 season with the AA Mississippi Braves. On June 16, 2011, the Braves announced that Delgado would be called up to make his Major League debut in a spot-start against the Texas Rangers on June 17. Delgado was given the opportunity because regular Braves starter Tommy Hanson was scratched due to right shoulder tendinitis. The debut was somewhat shaky for Delgado, as he gave up three runs (one unearned) over four innings of work, taking the loss for the game. Delgado returned to the Mississippi Braves and was later promoted to the Braves' AAA affiliate in Gwinnett. He was called up for the second time in August, once again to start in place of an injured Hanson. Facing the San Francisco Giants he pitched six hitless innings in which he faced the minimum number of batters before giving up a home run to Cody Ross to start the seventh inning and leaving the game. He received a no-decision and was optioned back to Gwinnett the next day.
