by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With reliever Josh Edgin expected to miss the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, the Mets have been scouting Orioles reliever Brian Matusz, eyeing the left-hander as a potential replacement for New York's bullpen, according to the New York Post. Scott Rice , Dario Alvarez, Jack Leathersich and Rule 5 pick Sean Gilmartin are considered the internal options to take Edgin's spot, if the Mets don't make a trade.

Mets disappointed by lefty relief options
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets left-handed pitchers Dario Alvarez, Sean Gilmartin, Jack Leathersich and Scott Rice have combined for a 15.43 spring ERA, leaving general manager Sandy Alderson and manager Terry Collins dissatisfied with the team's lefty candidates for the bullpen, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

"I’m not happy where we are with our left-handed situation," Alderson said Thursday.

The leading candidate to serve as the team's left-handed relief option at the beginning of spring was Josh Edgin, but the southpaw is now considering Tommy John surgery to fix an overstretched ligament in his elbow.

"Yeah, I’m disappointed," Collins said. "Here’s a chance. You come to the major league spring training and all you want is a chance. Now, with our guy down, if I’m left-handed I’m looking in the mirror and deciding what do I need to do to get that job, because it’s out there."

Alvarez surrendered four earned runs on one hit and three walks without recording an out in Thursday's 11-9 win over the Nationals.

Viola: Mets' prospect Leathersich is a poor man's Sid Fernandez
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets relief prospect Jack Leathersich has made a name for himself in the minors as a strikeout artist, as over his four-year career he is striking out 15.2 batters per nine innings. The left-hander is only 24 years old, meaning he could have a long and bright future with the Mets.

"If it all clicks, there's that lefty the Mets have been looking for in the big leagues and he's going to be there for a long time," Mets' Triple-A pitching coach Frank Viola said. "I compare him to a lesser man's Sid Fernandez."

Although, as good as Leathersich has been striking out batters, he has had his issues, particularly with his control. He has walked 4.9 batters per nine innings during his minor-league career.

"We'll give him a chance to see if he can get some left-handed hitters out in spring training," manager Terry Collins said. "You look at his numbers, he strikes people out. You look at his minor-league career, he strikes guys out. This isn't the minor leagues. I can clear that up real fast. This is a little different game. They're not going to swing at some of that stuff up here until you show me you can get them out in certain places, then they'll start to chase. But they're going to make you throw the ball over first. So we'll give him the opportunities."
