Mets LHP Josh Edgin has elected to become a free agent after New York designated him for assignment and he cleared waivers earlier this season, according to Metsmerized's Michael Mayer.

Edgin, 30, was outrighted to Triple-A as Vegas in August to make room on the 40- and 25-man rosters for AJ Ramos..

The Mets' 30th-round pick in 2010, Edgin underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee in September. He went 0-1 with a 3.65 ERA in 46 relief appearances for New York this season, striking out 27 batters and walking 18 in 37 innings.

In his five-year career, Edgin was 4-4 with a 3.49 ERA in 177 games with two saves, 116 strikeouts and 52 walks in 129 innings pitched.

Mets LHP Josh Edgin had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday, the team announced.

At the end of July, Edgin cleared waivers and was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas. On August 12, he was placed on the seven-day disabled list.

Infielder T.J. Rivera is set to undergo Tommy John surgery on his injured right elbow this week or next week.

Mets LHP Josh Edgin cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas, it was announced Wednesday.

The 30-year-old Edgin was designated for assignment by the Mets last week in order to make room on the roster for the recently-acquired AJ Ramos.

Edgin, who is no longer on the 40-man roster, has spent parts of five seasons with the Mets, posting a 3.49 ERA and 1.28 WHIP with 116 strikeouts in 129.0 innings (177 games).

Zack Wheeler turned in the worst start of his career on Tuesday, allowing eight runs on six hits before he could complete two innings during a 14-4 loss to the Cubs.

"I just didn't feel right today," Wheeler said after the game. "I don't know what it was, I just didn't feel right. It's no excuse, but you're supposed to find it when you're out there and make an adjustment. I couldn't do that today."

Wheeler, who had not allowed more than three runs in an outing since April 23, allowed a leadoff home run to Anthony Rizzo to start the game. Ian Happ then blasted a two-out grand slam in the second inning to extend Chicago's lead to 6-1.

Mets rookie RHP Paul Sewald continued his stellar pitching Thursday night, throwing three scoreless innings.

Sewald, who turns 27 today, entered in the top of the fourth inning after starting pitcher Rafael Montero was pulled from the game. Sewald allowed just one hit and one walk, while racking up four strikeouts in three innings.

Collins talks pitching, loss 00:04:48
Mets manager Terry Collins discusses Hansel Robles' lack of consistency on the mound and Zack Wheeler's inability to induce quick outs.

Hansel Robles struggled again Monday as he allowed five runs and four hits -- including two home runs -- during the eighth inning, resulting in his first loss of the season and his team's fifth straight defeat.

"Baseball is like that," Robles said after the game, according to the Daily News. "Sometimes you are up and sometimes you are down. Some things I can't control."

Robles had last appeared in Saturday's 11-4 loss to Milwaukee, where he gave up four runs on four hits in one inning...

Four Mets relievers combined to allow seven runs in the seventh and eighth innings, as the Mets were swept by the Brewers.

The Mets led 7-1 in the sixth inning and 8-3 entering the bottom of the seventh, but Jonathan Villar hit a two-run home run and Jesus Aguilar hit an RBI double to cut it to 8-6.

Maybe the decision was not that controversial given Jeurys Familia's struggles since returning from suspension. Still, Terry Collins exposed himself to the potential for serious second-guessing when, clinging to a two-run lead with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning on Friday night, he pulled his closer and inserted Josh Edgin to face Bryce Harper.

Edgin then coaxed a game-ending 1-2-3 double play and the Mets survived for a desperately needed 7-5 win at Washington to snap a six-game losing streak.

"The way things have been going, that's a big weight off our shoulders," Collins acknowledged postgame. "… Once in a while you have to make a decision. Sometimes they work. Sometimes they don't."

Collins indicated that the Mets' skid played big factor in his decision to lift Familia, even though Harper was 1-for-10 in his career against the closer. This is no time to passively manage and let players work out of funks.

Noah Syndergaard labored through seven innings Thursday against the Phillies, though he struck out 10 batters for the first time this season and threw a season-high 114 pitches.

Syndergaard gave three earned runs as the Mets struggled defensively and committed three errors.

"For the most part, I thought I threw pretty good. Except for that second inning [when] things got a little fluky," Syndergaard later said. "You just have to have a short-term memory and forget about it and get back on the mound. ... I felt great. I thought tonight was the best my mechanics have been in a long time."

Mets manager Terry Collins addressed the team following Sunday's loss to the Marlins, which marked the end of New York's first road trip of the season.

"I just told the guys, 'We came on this road [trip] .500, we're going home above .500,'" Collins revealed to Mike Puma of the New York Post. "We've got to take that as a positive, not a negative. Should we have won more? Maybe. But we didn't. Can't worry about that."

The Mets departed Citi Field with a 3-3 record last week. They began the road trip with a three-game sweep of the Phillies before continuing their success with a 16-inning marathon win Thursday night against the Marlins. But New York went on to lose the next three games in Miami, with the Marlins taking the lead in their final at-bats in all three losses.

Michael Conforto homered Wednesday as the Mets completed a three-game sweep in Philadelphia, giving him a pair of long balls and a .538 on-base percentage in limited opportunities this season.

Yet the numbers that dictate Conforto no longer belongs in the minor leagues were posted last year. During a pair of stints with Triple-A Las Vegas, Conforto hit .422 with nine homers and 28 RBIs.

In a tie game to start the 12th inning, Mets reliever Rafael Montero let up a single and walked two batters (one intentional) before Matt Kemp hit a two-run double to give the Braves the lead.

The Mets got the tying run to the plate during their next at-bat, but eventually lost the game, 3-1.

In total, Montero was charged with the loss, as well as two runs, three hits and three walks in his first 1.2 innings of the season. Hansel Robles entered the game with a 1-0 lead thanks to six scoreless innings from Jacob deGrom. However, Robles allowed a run to score that tied the game, while being charged with a blown save in the seventh inning...

It's possible the Mets put three left-handed relievers in their Opening Day bullpen, sources recently told the NY Post's Mike Puma.

According to Puma, lefties Josh Smoker and Josh Edgin are being considered for the 25-man roster, which is expected to also include LHP Jerry Blevins, who signed a two-year deal with the Mets this past winter.

"Smoker's success this spring against righties makes him a possible crossover option who wouldn't be considered a pure lefty specialist," Puma explains. "Edgin has also had success against righties."

Mets Hot Stove: Josh Edgin 00:05:16
Steve Gelbs talks with reliever Josh Edgin about his performance last season coming off of Tommy John surgery on Mets Hot Stove.

Mets left-handed reliever Josh Edgin's elbow is healthy and he looks forward to helping the big-league bullpen in 2017, he told SNY's Mets Hot Stove on Thursday night.

Edgin missed all of 2015 recovering from Tommy John surgery. He appeared in 16 games toward the end of last season, during which he was 5.23 ERA (4.02 FIP) and struck out 11 batters in 10.2 innings.

"I had a pretty decent year when I was the team in 2014 and I'd like to pick back up where I left off," he added. "I can get lefties out and that's what I plan on doing."

The Mets will avoid arbitration with LH reliever Josh Edgin, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN.

The terms of the deal are not yet known.

Edgin, 30, made $625,000 last season, which was his first year back from Tommy John surgery.

Could Mets re-sign Blevins? 00:02:38
Baseball Night in New York discusses Jerry Blevins' impact on the Mets and where he could end up for the 2017 season.

Closer Greg Holland, right-handed relievers Neftali Feliz, Sergio Romo, and Joe Blanton and left-handed relievers Boone Logan and Jerry Blevins are getting the most attention right now on the free-agent market for relievers, according to MLB insiders.

According to the same sources, the Mets are among 10-12 teams looking to add a left-handed reliever, and they're among the 15 or so teams still in the market for a right-handed reliever.

I believe there are more teams interested in Logan than Blevins, with the Mets interested in both. I believe these two men will get guaranteed deals, especially when considering supply and demand. But, as the NY Post's Ken Davidoff pointed out Tuesday, one of the two may want to take a one-year deal so he can be in position for a longer-term deal next winter. In that scenario, Sandy Alderson and the Mets may be that pitcher's best option.

I expect Jeurys Familia will be suspended to start the season. If that's the case, Addison Reed will be the New York Mets' temporary closer. How the bullpen shakes out after that is still a bit of a mystery.

Will Jerry Blevins be back?

Blevins is reportedly seeking a three-year deal, probably worth $15-20 million. The Mets would love to have him back, and I'm sure he'd like to return, but there's no evidence that Sandy Alderson is interested in making this type of commitment to a relief pitcher, even Blevins.

It's a weak market for free-agent relievers. So, free-agent LH reliever Jerry Blevins must have smiled earlier this week when the Cardinals gave LH reliever Brett Cecil a four-year, $30.5 million deal. Because, if that's the high mark for a left-handed reliever, Blevins will be justified asking for at least two years... maybe even three years guarenteed...

The Mets would like to retain pending free agent left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins, but expect him to get "a sizable multiyear offer elsewhere," reports Adam Rubin of ESPN.

Rubin says that might price the Mets out on the 33-year-old Blevins.

Blevins had a 2.79 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 52 strikeouts in 42 innings (73 appearances) for the Mets this past season, while left-handers hit .255 with a .313 OBP and .324 SLG against him.

His bullpen has been successful this season, ranking fifth in MLB in ERA and WAR, but it has been top-heavy with Addision Reed, Jeurys Familia, and Hansel Robles each logging over 50 innings. A weak collection of middle relievers, spear-headed by the now-departed Antonio Bastardo, has resulted in more close games than there would be otherwise (though the weak offense is the main culprit) and Collins has found it difficult to give them days off when games are tight.

In turn, shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and outfielder Justin Ruggiano have been put on the 15-day disabled list, while reliever Seth Lugo and outfielder Brandon Nimmo have been sent back to Triple-A.


Cabrera left the game on July 31 with a strained patella tendon in his left knee. He had similar injury in spring training, which caused him to miss 17 days.
