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.
Mar 24 - 12:47 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.

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.
Jan 15 - 12:55 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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Mar 19, 2015 09:17:00 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.
Tue, Mar 17, 2015 12:27:00 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.

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.

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.
