Josh Edgin Elects Free Agency

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.

Other minor league free agents this offseason for the Mets include Xorge Carrillo, Travis Snider, Ben Rowen, Tom Gorzelanny, Nabil Crismatt and Donovan Hand.

Chasen Bradford, Travis Taijeron, Tyler Pill and Phillip Evans will become free agents if removed from the 40-man roster.
