The New York Mets have called up left-hander Josh Edgin from Triple-A Buffalo to pitch in relief.
The 25-year-old Edgin joined the team before Friday night's game against the Braves. He was 3-2 with a 3.89 ERA and one save at Buffalo.
The Mets placed right-hander Dillon Gee on the 15-day disabled list. Gee was scheduled for right shoulder surgery on Friday in St. Louis and could miss the remainder of the season.
Meanwhile, manager Terry Collins says closer Frank Francisco will not throw on Saturday as had been planned. Francisco is on the disabled list with a left oblique strain.
Collins said Francisco ''just didn't feel right.''

It’s late summer, the last week of July. It’s mad hot outside. A fella gets out of bed to go to work. He’s got a slight grabbing pain in his lower back. “I must’ve slept funny,” he says to himself. After showering and getting dressed, the fella finds himself a little short of breath. “I must’ve smoked too many cigarettes last night. I’ll take it easier today...
After retiring the first batter he faced to start the bottom half of the fifth inning, New York Mets reliever Miguel Batista walked the bases loaded.

Few Mets fans have been riding the Dillon Gee bandwagon for as long as I have. To me, and some of my closest Mets fan friends, he’s the second-coming of Rick Reed, down to sharing the number the veteran righty wore in his time in New York.
Over the All-Star break, Gee was revealed to have a blood clot in an artery located in his right shoulder, which will require...
On Monday, the Mets World found out that Dillon Gee had a blood clot in his throwing shoulder and would be forced to the disabled list because of the injury. At first it was thought to not be as serious and like many assumed a Miguel Batista or Jeremy Hefner would be good enough for a spot start or two until Gee returned.
However, Gee did require surgery and will likely miss the...

After an All-Star break with some highs and lows, the Mets are ready to begin the second half of 2012 after some mild roster tailoring.

No evaluation of the Mets is complete without a list of disappointments. While 46-40 at the break, the Mets have more to be happy about than not. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t laments.
