Mets placed LHP Josh Edgin on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27, with a left elbow injury.

Edgin underwent Tommy John surgery last month and will miss the entire 2015 season. The injury forced the Mets to beef up their bullpen with the recent additions of Jerry Blevins and Alex Torres.
Apr 5 - 11:29 PM

Josh Edgin returned to Mets camp Thursday following Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

Edgin had the procedure Tuesday. He will miss the entire 2015 season and the first few weeks in 2016.
Mar 19 - 9:17 AM

Josh Edgin (elbow) will have Tommy John surgery Tuesday.

Edgin will miss the entire 2015 season and might get a late start on 2016. The Mets were already thin with left-handed relievers prior to the injury, so the situation is rather bleak at the moment.
Mar 17 - 12:27 PM

Josh Edgin will have Tommy John surgery on his left elbow.

It's an expected outcome and a big blow to the Mets' bullpen. Edgin holds a 3.20 ERA while striking out nearly a batter per inning over the last three seasons for New York. He'll miss all of the 2015 season and figures to get a late start in 2016, as well. The Mets are now really thin with left-handed relief.
Mar 15 - 9:20 AM

The MRI on Josh Edgin's left elbow has been sent to Dr. James Andrew for a second opinion.

Edgin has been diagnosed with weakness in his ulnar collateral ligament and is weighing whether or not to have Tommy John surgery. It's possible he could pitch through it since the ligament isn't technically torn, but undergoing a season-ending operation remains the most likely course of action.

Josh Edgin has a ligament issue in his left elbow and is weighing whether to have surgery.

Edgin's UCL is not torn, but it is stretched thin and causing him discomfort when he throws. The surgery would be the Tommy John variety, which typically knocks pitchers out for 12-15 months. The lefty reliever is expected to make a decision in the next few days. Rehab is the other option, though it could be a case of delaying the inevitable.
Mar 12 - 9:13 AM

Josh Edgin (elbow) may be able to get by with rest and rehab, a source tells Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

The source also said the club is awaiting details from team doctor David Altchek, and no officials from the team were saying anything about Edgin's condition Wednesday. Edgin had an MRI Wednesday after he was experiencing diminished velocity early in camp. More should be known about his future Thursday.
Mar 11 - 10:31 PM

Josh Edgin will undergo an MRI on his left elbow.

Edgin has shown diminished velocity so far this spring and he's dealing with aches in his arm and elbow. Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen believes that he's going through the same dead arm phase he did last spring, but they are going to send him for tests to be sure. It's worth noting that he dealt with some elbow issues toward the end of last season, as well. The Mets were counting on Edgin to be their top left-hander out of the bullpen, so it would be a big loss if he needs to miss some time.
Mar 10 - 8:30 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins indicated Monday that he's concerned about Josh Edgin's diminished velocity.

Edgin’s fastball velocity sat in the 88-91 mph range during an appearance Monday against the Marlins, down from the 92.4 mph he averaged last season. The southpaw struggled with diminished velocity last March before being sent to minor league camp and Collins said he has noticed the same thing so far this spring. "It’s in the same area, for sure," said Collins. Edgin is being counted on as the primary left-hander in the Mets' bullpen, so they could be in trouble if he struggles. The alternatives in camp include Rule 5 pick Sean Gilmartin, non-roster invitee Scott Rice, and minor leaguers Dario Alvarez and Jack Leathersich.
Mar 9 - 5:38 PM

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.

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."

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.

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.
