Edgin underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday, James Wagner of The New York Times reports. There were no reported issues following the procedure. Edgin is done for the year, but knee scopes are relatively minor surgeries, so Edgin should be healthy well ahead of spring training. He hasn't been the same since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2015, but Edgin figures to find work as a lefty specialist.
Edgin will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports. After being outrighted off the Mets' 40-man roster early in August, the veteran reliever cleared waivers and reported to Triple-A Las Vegas, with whom he made three appearances before being shut down with the knee injury. Although an official recovery timetable hasn't been established for Edgin, he'll likely be fully healthy in advance of spring training, though it's unclear if the soon-to-be free agent will have signed with a team by then. Edgin will probably have to settle for a minor-league contract this winter after submitting a 3.65 ERA and underwhelming 1.54 WHIP and 6.6 K/9 rate in 37 innings with the Mets in 2017.
Edgin cleared waivers Wednesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports. Edgin was designated for assignment Sunday, and it seems that no other team was allured by the reliever's 3.65 ERA in 37 big-league innings this season. Unless a trade happens before the end of August, Edgin will move into an organizational depth role.
Edgin was designated for assignment by the Mets on Sunday. The Mets needed to make room on the 40-man roster for recent acquisition A.J. Ramos and ultimately decided to designate Edgin for assignment. It was a bit of a surprising move, as Edgin held a respectable 3.65 ERA over 37 innings of relief this season. He'll more than likely be claimed by another big-league club.
Edgin got Bryce Harper to ground into a double play with the bases loaded in the ninth inning to notch his first save of the season in Friday's 7-5 win over the Nationals. After Jeurys Familia ran into trouble to begin the ninth, Edgin came on to face the most dangerous left-handed hitter in the game and needed only three pitches to induce a comebacker and start a 1-2-3 double play, earning his second career save. Familia has looked shaky since returning from his suspension, but Edgin isn't likely to feature prominently in the saves mix going forward even if Familia continues to struggle.
