Mets recalled LHP Josh Edgin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Mets recalled LHP Josh Edgin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Edgin's return from Tommy John surgery is officially complete. The southpaw had a 2.18 ERA and 38/18 K/BB ratio over 33 innings between High-A St. Lucie and Triple-A Las Vegas this season. He'll give Terry Collins another lefty out of the bullpen following the trade of Antonio Bastardo.

The Mets are expected to call up left-handed reliever Josh Edgin on Tuesday, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

Edgin will give the Mets another left-hander in the bullpen following the Antonio Bastardo trade. The southpaw has posted a 2.18 ERA and 38/18 K/BB ratio over 33 innings between High-A St. Lucie and Triple-A Las Vegas this season. He missed the entire 2015 season due to Tommy John surgery.

Mets activated LHP Josh Edgin from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Edgin is recovered from Tommy John elbow surgery, but he'll continue building arm strength on the farm. He should get a shot in New York at some point this summer.

Mets assistant GM John Ricco confirmed Josh Edgin (elbow) will remain with Triple-A Las Vegas when his rehab assignment expires on Sunday.

Edgin has pitched well during his rehab (1.42 ERA in eight outings) but the Mets don't have room in their bullpen right now. The 29-year-old will continue to bide his time in Las Vegas until a spot opens up in New York.

Mets manager Terry Collins strongly hinted that Josh Edgin (elbow) will be sent to the minor leagues after the completion of his rehab assignment on Sunday.

There's no opening in the Mets bullpen right now and Edgin's velocity isn't where it needs to be. The Mets would also like Edgin to be able to pitch on consecutive days, something he hasn't done since beginning his rehab assignment. Edgin owns a 1.42 ERA across eight minor league outings this year.

Josh Edgin (elbow) recorded two outs in his first rehab appearance Sunday with High-A St. Lucie.

The left-hander also allowed a run on a walk and a hit. Edgin underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last March and will spend at least another two weeks pitching in minor league games.
Mon, Apr 11, 2016 01:02:00 PM

Mets placed LHP Josh Edgin on the 15-day disabled list with a left elbow injury.

Edgin will miss at least the first month of the season while working his way back from Tommy John surgery. With Antonio Bastardo and Jerry Blevins in the Mets' bullpen, Edgin isn't a given to immediately be added to the major league roster at that point.

Josh Edgin (elbow) threw a scoreless inning in an intrasquad game Thursday in Mets camp.

Edgin is aiming for a May 1 return from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and seems to be on track. He had a very good 2014 but then missed all of 2015.
Thu, Mar 24, 2016 12:47:00 PM

Josh Edgin (elbow) said that he's tentatively targeting May 1 as his return date from Tommy John surgery.

This falls in line with previous reports. Edgin underwent Tommy John last March. In 2014, the 29-year-old southpaw held a strong 1.32 ERA and 28/6 K/BB ratio. Granted, that was in just 27 1/3 innings. He's yet to surpass 28 2/3 innings (he hit that mark in 2013) for a season, but if he can return to health, he could offer an interesting bullpen option for manager Terry Collins.

Josh Edgin (elbow) is expected to miss the first month of the season.

Edgin had Tommy John surgery last March and the Mets have no plans to rush him back for Opening Day. With the re-signing of Jerry Blevins and signing of Antonio Bastardo, they can afford to take things slowly with Edgin.
Mon, Jan 25, 2016 10:29:00 PM

Mets and LHP Josh Edgin avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $625,000 contract.

Edgin gets a little raise in his first year of arbitration eligiblity even though he missed all of 2015 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He has a chance of being ready for Opening Day.
Fri, Jan 15, 2016 12:55:00 PM

Mets activated LHP Josh Edgin from the 60-day disabled list.

He's now back on the Mets' 40-man roster. Edgin missed 2015 following Tommy John surgery but has a shot to be ready for Opening Day.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 09:21:00 AM

Josh Edgin (elbow) began a throwing program last week.

It's obviously a big benchmark as the relief works his way back from Tommy John surgery. Edgin won't be ready until spring training next year.
