Josh Edgin, who was supposed to be the Mets’ top lefty out of the pen, had an MRI on his elbow the other day. The news could be worse, but it’s still pretty bad: his ligament is not torn, but it is “stretched out” and is considered compromised. The choice now: rehab vs. surgery, which Edgin will decide on in the coming days.
With Edgin out — and you have to figure that he’s out a good while, even if he doesn’t have surgery — the Mets’ bullpen is looking pretty thin, especially from the left side. Almost makes a fella think that they could’ve spent a few million bucks and brought in some more pitchers this past winter.
