Josh Edgin struck out the only batter he faced in his return to the mound Tuesday.
Edgin was called upon to help bail closer Jenrry Mejia out of a jam, and he got Corey Dickerson to go down swinging. Jeurys Familia then got a groundout to seal the win. Edgin hadn't pitched since August 23 due to elbow issues, but it appears he'll try to gut it out for the rest of the season. Sep 10 - 4:19 AM

Date:

Josh Edgin (elbow) is set to undergo an MRI.

Edgin has been battling bone spurs and tendinitis in his pitching elbow for a while now and the condition has flared up on him again. "There is some uncertainty," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "We’ll have to see with the doctors. The shot really didn’t help him. When the shot didn’t help very much, he was going to start taking his medicine, hold off until the doctors take a look at it."
Sep 1 - 10:55 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins indicated Sunday that Josh Edgin (elbow) will be "down for awhile".

Edgin is battling through bone spurs in his left elbow, and has been resting since early in the week. The Mets may end up playing things safely and sitting him down for the remainder of the season in order to let everything fully heal and avoid the risk of further damage.
Aug 31 - 4:43 PM

Josh Edgin (elbow) is likely available Thursday against the Braves.

Edgin is dealing with bone spurs in his left elbow, but he's apparently feeling better after a couple of days of rest. The young southpaw has a 1.40 ERA and 25/6 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings this season.

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.
Aug 27 - 7:26 PM

Josh Edgin was unavailable to pitch Tuesday due to left elbow soreness.

Edgin insisted that he would only need a day or two of rest. The left-hander has been terrific for the Mets this season, posting a 1.40 ERA and 25/6 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 relief innings.
Aug 26 - 10:13 PM

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

Edgin will add badly-needed depth to the Mets' bullpen, but effectiveness is another issue. The 27-year-old left-hander owns a rough 4.97 ERA, 2.13 WHIP, and 12/11 K/BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings this season at Triple-A.
May 15 - 11:59 AM

Mets optioned LHP Josh Edgin to Triple-A Las Vegas.

The Mets once had big hopes for Edgin out of their bullpen, but he really struggled this spring and showed diminished velocity. John Lannan or Jack Leathersich could make the Opening Day roster as a second left-hander behind Scott Rice.
Mar 10 - 1:25 PM

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

Edgin suffered a stress fracture in his rib cage in August and did not return to a mound. The left-hander posted a 3.77 ERA in 28 2/3 innings before the injury and would seem to be a lock for a bullpen spot in 2014.
Thu, Oct 31, 2013 12:25:00 PM

Mets transferred LHP Josh Edgin from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Jordany Valdespin to be reinstated following his suspension. Edgin suffered a stress fracture in his rib in August, but should be fine for 2014.
Tue, Sep 24, 2013 02:51:00 PM

Mets placed LHP Josh Edgin on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 30, with a stress fracture in his ribs.

Tough break for Edgin, who had a 0.93 ERA in 23 appearances since returning from the minors in June. No word yet on how long he'll be sidelined, but it will probably be a while. The Mets haven't announced a corresponding move.

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

Edgin was a big disappointment prior to his demotion in late April and wasn't much better in the minors, posting a 6.75 ERA in 16 appearances between Double- and Triple-A. Still, the Mets have called him up to replace Robert Carson in the bullpen.
Tue, Jun 11, 2013 12:23:00 PM

Mets optioned LHP Josh Edgin to Double-A Binghamton.

Edgin has struggled this season and posted a 9.64 ERA in 11 appearances. The Mets will demote him to their Double-A affiliate so he can figure out his issues against lower competition. Shaun Marcum has been activated from the 15-day disabled list in a corresponding move.

Josh Edgin surrendered three runs -- two earned -- in 1 2/3 innings out of the pen versus the Tigers on Thursday.

Edgin has allowed seven runs -- four earned -- and 13 hits in 7 2/3 innings this spring. We'd rate him as the Mets' best lefty reliever, but since he's having a tough time this spring and the Mets have several veterans in camp, it's possible Edgin will be sent down for the first few weeks.
Thu, Mar 14, 2013 04:45:00 PM

The Mets plan to shut down left-handed reliever Josh Edgin after one more appearance in 2012.

Edgin is being shut down purely due to workload. He has thrown 69 innings between the minors and majors this season. Over 25 2/3 innings with the big club, Edgin has a 3.86 ERA to go along with 30 punch-outs.
