Mets recall Josh Edgin from Triple-A Las Vegas


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:

Josh Edgin, who has been pitching out of the bullpen for Triple-A Las Vegas, is on his way to New York.

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.

Thoughts:

If Edgin joins the bullpen, it stands to reason that he’ll be replacing either Jose Valverde or Kyle Farnsworth on the 25-man roster.

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.

    He just starts to get on track and they bring him up. Chances are he will struggle here and be sent back down with more doubts in his head. They should have kept him down to gain the confidence he needs. This is the sign of a desperate ball club. The GM is now reaching down to players who aren’t ready instead of doing his job of acquiring players who are ready. More Walmart bargains that are unreliable, is all the owners will allow.
