New York Mets left-hander Josh Edgin has elected free agency. He was eligible to become a free agent once the Mets designated him for assignment last month and he cleared waivers.
Edgin, 30, had a 3.65 ERA in 37 innings with the Mets but gave up his share of baserunners with a 1.54 WHIP during that span. His 6.57 K/9 and his 4.38 BB/9 definitely raised questions about how sustainable his performance was.
Edgin underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee last month.
