John Lannan Open To Bullpen Role

On Monday, the Mets included reliever Josh Edgin among their first wave of cuts and reassigned him to minor league camp. Edgin was not happy with the decision according to several beat reporters, however his reduced velocity has been a big concern and most likely factored into the Mets’ decision.
