Mets Injury Updates: Rosario, Edgin, Rivera

The Mets released a plethora of injury updates on Tuesday, including the statuses of Amed Rosario, Josh Edgin and T.J. Rivera.

Rosario, 21, sustained a contusion on his right index finger in Saturday’s bout with the Astros and is still experiencing swelling.

The shortstop sustained a similar injury with Triple-A Las Vegas and missed several games.

In 31 games at the major league level this season, Rosario is hitting .245/.272/.427 with four home runs and eight RBI.

Reliever Josh Edgin underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday afternoon, effectively ending his season.

The 30-year-old appeared in 46 games for the Mets this season, pitching to an 0-1 record with a 3.65 ERA.

Edgin was designated for assignment earlier this summer and was outrighted to Triple-A where he appeared in three games before going down with injury.

Infielder T.J. Rivera will undergo Tommy John within the next week or so, ending a solid campaign in which he hit .290/.330/.430 in 73 games.

The recovery process for position players is significantly less than a pitcher, so Rivera figures to be ready for next season.
