Orioles LHP Josh Edgin exercised his opt-out clause and is now a free agent.

Edgin was signed to a minor league contract in November with an ability to opt out of that deal if he wasn't called up to the MLB by May 15, and he's now free to sign with any other club. In 12 games for Triple-A Norfolk, Edgin has a 4.82 ERA, but he's also struck out 25 hitters in 18 2/3 innings with a 59 percent ground-ball rate.
May 16 - 4:55 PM

Orioles reassign LHP Josh Edgin and LHP Joely Rodriguez to minor league camp.

Both Edgin and Rodriguez were trying to win a spot in the Baltimore bullpen. It looks like that spot will instead go to Rule 5 pick Nestor Cortez, instead. Edgin had a 3.65 ERA in 37 inning for the Mets in 2017, and could see time with the Orioles before the end of the 2018 season -- assuming he stays in the organization.
Mar 25 - 11:36 AM

Josh Edgin has returned to Orioles' camp.

Edgin has been away for a couple of days following the birth of his son. The southpaw is in the mix for a bullpen spot this spring. The 31-year-old posted a 3.65 ERA and 27/18 K/BB ratio over 37 innings with the Mets last season.
Mar 12 - 9:24 AM

Orioles signed LHP Josh Edgin to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Edgin's velocity and results have tumbled in the wrong direction since he missed 2015 following Tommy John surgery, but on a minor league deal he's worth a shot. He'll give the Orioles left-handed relief depth.

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 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.

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