Josh Edgin is dealing with bone spurs in his left elbow.
Edgin was potentially available Wednesday but Mets manager Terry Collins said he wanted to "quiet it down. There’s more bone spurs stuff than it is any other structural damage," Collins said. "He’s fine otherwise I wouldn’t be pitching him. To quiet it down as we always know and it’s ligaments running across that bone spur flares up, so we got to quiet it down." Edgin should be back in game action soon.
Vic Black (neck) will still be sidelined a couple more days with bone spurs and stiffness in his neck.
Black hasn't been available the past few days with stiffness, and he had a precautionary MRI on his neck Wednesday. It doesn't sound like it will require a trip to the disabled list at this point.
Ehire Adrianza (hamstring) is headed to Scottsdale to continue his rehab.
Adrianza said he's still a month away from being game-ready. The infielder's season is likely over.
Hector Sanchez (concussion) will continue to exercise at home before seeing a doctor again in three weeks.
Sanchez saw a concussion specialist on Tuesday. The diagnosis reaffirmed the idea that he's likely done for the rest of the regular season.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Cory Rasmus is an option to start on Saturday.
Rasmus has a 2.68 ERA as the Angels' long reliever, but Rasmus hasn't started a game, majors or minors, since 2011. An outside acquisition is also an option to fill the rotation spot vacated by Garrett Richards.
