Josh Edgin elects free agency.

The 30-year-old hurler posted a 3.65 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 27/18 K/BB ratio across 37 innings out of the Mets' bullpen in 2017. The left-hander has been a reliable bullpen option in the past, which should carry enough weight to land him a minor league deal this off-season.

Josh Edgin will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Tuesday.

Josh Edgin notched a save with a double-play grounder in Friday’s win over the Nationals.

It was a gutsy call by Mets manager Terry Collins, who opted to pull Jeurys Familia with the bases loaded and one out with Bryce Harper due up. Harper hit a comebacker to Edgin, who threw home for the first out before Travis d’Arnaud threw to first base to complete the double play and end the ballgame. The Mets’ six-game losing streak is over.

Mets and LHP Josh Edgin avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $675,000 contract.

Edgin posted a 5.23 ERA over 16 appearances for the Mets last season in his first year back from Tommy John surgery. He'll make a little more than the MLB minimum in 2017.

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.
Sat, May 7, 2016 07:15:00 PM

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.
Thu, May 5, 2016 08:08:00 PM

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.
