UPDATE, May 16:
The Mets announced Thursday that they had recalled Josh Edgin from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Coming on the heels of Kyle Farnsworth‘s release on Wednesday night, Edgin’s activation was expected.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE, May 15:
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, it’s unclear whether Edgin will be activated after he arrives.
Edgin, 27, has held the opposition scoreless over his last 5.1 innings.
Overall, Edgin has posted a 4.97 ERA and unsightly 2.13 WHIP for Las Vegas. In 12.2 innings pitched, Edgin has allowed 16 hits, walked 11, and struck out 12.
While the Mets could certainly use another lefty in the pen, Edgin hasn’t done anything that merits a callup.
It was thought that Vic Black would be the next bullpen arm called to New York. Apparently, Black’s return to the majors will have to wait a bit longer.
