Tim Byrdak Out 6 Weeks, Josh Edgin Moves To Major League Camp
Updated 1:45 PM
The Mets have just announced that Tim Byrdak is expected to be out for six weeks, and that LHP Josh Edgin is moving to major league camp.
Good news for Edgin.
Here is an MMO Exclusive Interview our own Pete Shapiro conducted with Josh Edgin last month.

Left-handed reliever Tim Byrdak will have surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, a team official has confirmed.
Byrdak had been complaining of a sore knee that has bothered him the last few weeks.
He was sent to New York this morning for further testing at the Hospital For Special Surgery in Manhattan.
Surgery has been scheduled for Tuesday (tomorrow).
Byrdak was the only left-handed reliever who was assured of a bullpen spot. Now they Mets must choose between Daniel Herrera, Garrett Olson, Chuck James and prospect Robert Carson, neither of whom were expected to make the team.
There is also a chance that C.J. Nitkowski will be signed, but he has not pitched in the majors in almost seven years.
