Mets Injury Update: Josh Edgin still unavailable

By on 8/31/2014 11:30:00 PM

The New York Mets hoped left-handed pitcher Josh Edgin would be available this week.  Now, it appears that he is not healing as quickly as originally thought from bone spurs in his left elbow and will be unavailable for an unknown amount of time.

Greg Logan of Long Island Newsday reports that Edgin did not accompany the Mets to Miami today.  Manager Terry Collins told Adam Rubin of ESPN that Edgin will be ‘down for a while’.
Edgin is worried that he may need surgery after he received treatment last Monday but was still unable to warm up during this past Friday’s game.  He had an MRI that confirmed the bone spurs were the cause of his pain.  Dana Eveland will take over the primary left handed reliever role while Edgin is out.

Edgin is 1-0 with a 1.40 ERA in 25.2 innings pitched this season.  He has given up only two home runs in 17 total hits.  The Mets are currently in fourth place in the National League East with a 64-73 record.  They won the weekend series against the Phillies and start a series against the Marlins on Monday.
