Edgin signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Wednesday.
Edgin has latched on with the Nationals after opting out of his contract with the Orioles earlier in the month. The 31-year-old, who compiled a 4.34 ERA and 25:5 K:BB across 18.2 innings with Triple-A Norfolk prior to opting out of his deal, will report to Triple-A Syracuse. He'll serve as organizational bullpen depth for the Nationals.
Edgin opted out of his minor-league deal with Baltimore on Wednesday, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.
Edgin will become a free agent and look for an opportunity with another organization after exercising his opt-out clause. Over 25 games with Triple-A Norfolk this season, he's hit just .161/.291/.253 with one home run and 14 RBI. In the event that Edgin finds a new home, it's unlikely he will make an impact in the majors this season.
The Orioles reassigned Edgin to their minor-league camp Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
With the Orioles dismissing both Edgin and fellow southpaw Joely Rodriguez, Rule 5 pick Nestor Cortes appears to have made the club as a second left-hander out of the bullpen behind Richard Bleier. Don't be surprised if Edgin, who has held opposing lefties to a .221/.296/.367 line over his career, resurfaces in the big leagues with the Orioles or another club later this season as a depth reliever.
Edgin (personal) reported back to Orioles camp and is scheduled to pitch in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.
Edgin was away from the Orioles for the last few days after his wife gave birth to the couple's third child. The time away from the team shouldn't dramatically affect Edgin's case for an Opening Day spot in the Orioles' bullpen, though his standing as a non-roster invitee makes it more likely than not that he'll open the campaign in the minors.
Edgin (knee) received an invitation to attend Orioles spring training as a non-roster invitee, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.
It had been expected that Edgin's knee would be in full health for spring training, and that appears to be the case. Edgin had a sound 3.65 ERA and 1.54 WHIP over 46 games (37 innings) as a member of the Mets last season. However, he struck out just 27 batters in that time and wouldn't be poised to see many high-leverage situations, should he earn a spot in Baltimore's bullpen.
Edgin (knee) agreed to a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Edgin spent most of the 2017 campaign with the Mets before being outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas at the end of July. He compiled a respectable 3.65 ERA to go along with his 1.54 WHIP and 27:18 K:BB across 37 innings with the big club. While the 30-year-old hasn't been the same since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2015, he figures to see work as a lefty specialist for the Orioles next season. Edgin underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in September but is expected to be healthy well before the start of spring training.
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.
Edgin threw two scoreless innings in a loss to the Marlins on Friday, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out one.
He entered the game to start the eighth inning with the Mets down 7-1, which tells you all you need to know about Edgin's place in the bullpen pecking order. The 30-year-old lefty has tossed three goose eggs to start the season, but unless he's able to move into a high-leverage role, his fantasy value will be limited.
Edgin and the Mets avoided arbitration Friday, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.
After logging at least 20 innings in each season between 2012 and 2014, Edgin saw zero innings in 2015 and just 10.1 in 2016, allowing six earned runs and also walking six, so don't expect his role with the Mets to increase much this season.
Edgin will be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.
Edgin failed to crack the Mets' 25-man roster out of spring training while he recovered from Tommy John surgery and wasn't effective when he did make his return to the big leagues earlier this season. Over 3.2 innings with the Mets, Edgin has been tagged for four runs on three hits and four walks. Don't expect him to see much high-leverage work down the stretch.
The Mets have recalled Edgin from Triple-A Las Vegas, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Edgin has been pitching really well at Triple-A, accumulating a 2.13 ERA with 11 strikeouts in 12.2 innings over his last 10 outings. He will head back to New York where he hasn't pitched since 2014. Edgin owns a 3.20 ERA in 81.2 career major league innings.
Edgin has been effective at Triple-A Las Vegas but his velocity is only in the low-90s, which is why he may not be considered for a call up, the NY Post reports.
Edgin, prior to Tommy John surgery, topped out around 95 mph. The drop in velocity, despite the 2.45 ERA and 22 K in 22 innings pitched, is likely why he remains in the minors despite the Mets needing another bullpen arm.
Edgin (elbow) was activated from the disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Edgin finished his rehab assignment Sunday, but the Mets are set with the current bullpen and opted to send the 29-year-old lefty down to Triple-A. Antonio Bastardo and Jerry Blevins will continue to serve as the left-handed specialists in the Mets bullpen.
Edgin (elbow) could remain in the minors when his rehab assignment concludes Sunday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.
Unfortunately for Edgin, manager Terry Collins stated that the left-hander won'tt return to New York until he has pitched on consecutive days, which he hasn't been able to do yet. Collins also said that there's not really a vacancy in the Mets bullpen, meaning that Edgin could be locked a bit longer in Triple-A until he's absolutely needed. Between all of this and the fact that his fastball is only sitting around 88 miles per hour, it'll be tough for Edgin to crack the Mets bullpen in the near future.
Edgin (elbow) struck out the lone batter he faced at High-A St. Lucie on Thursday and could soon move his rehab up a level.
Edgin is on a 30-day rehab assignment and has allowed one run on two hits and a walk while striking out five in 3.1 innings for St. Lucie. Look for him to move up the ladder to Double-A Binghamton and then Triple-A Las Vegas before his rehab assignment is over. Edgin could be ready to return to the majors around May 1 and a promotion could come at the expense of Rafael Montero, if Montero isn't demoted Friday to make room for Jacob deGrom.
Edgin threw 27 pitches in two-thirds of an inning during a rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.
Edgin was not overly effective, as he gave up a hit, a walk and a sacrifice fly in the outing, but the appearance does show some progress in his return from Tommy John surgery. He still has a few more rehab appearances scheduled, and the Mets still estimate that the left-hander will return around May 1.
