As expected, the Mets have announced that LHP Josh Edgin will be promoted from Triple-A Buffalo and join the team on Friday when they play the Braves in Atlanta to start the second half of the season.
Edgin went 3-2 with a 3.89 ERA in 35 games for the Bisons this season and in 37.1 innings he has walked 18 while strinking out 40 batters.
In his last ten appearances Edgin has allowed just one earned run in 10.1 innings.
i see this as a great move for the Mets and do believe Edgin will prove to be a solid addition as the second left-hander in the bullpen.
Honestly, I’ve felt that Terry Collins has been in a tenuous position for most of the first half having to navigate through some choppy waters with just Tim Byrdak as the lone lefty.
You could take the handcuffs off now, Terry.
