With lefty reliever Josh Edgin dealing with elbow troubles which could result in Tommy John surgery, the Mets are keeping an eye on the market for left-handed relievers, ESPN’s Adam Rubin reports.

Rubin cites Sam Freeman of the Cardinals and Xavier Cedeno of the Nationals, both of whom are out of options with their respective teams. Freeman, 27, has a career 3.33 ERA and a 61/34 K/BB ratio over 70 1/3 innings. Cedeno, 28, has a career 5.19 ERA and a 50/22 K/BB ratio over 52 innings.

If the Mets decide to stay in-house for lefties, Scott Rice, Rule 5 pick Sean Gilmartin, Dario Alvarez, and Jack Leathersich are potential options.
