Mets News: Josh Edgin sent down to Binghamton to clear spot for Marcum
The Mets have sent Josh Edgin to Double-A Binghamton to clear a roster spot for Shaun Marcum.
Edgin, 26, was a lock for the bullpen out of spring training, leaving Scott Rice and Robert Carson to battle it out for the role as the second left-hander. But he has struggled this season. Despite a 1-2-3 ninth inning Friday night against the bottom of Philadelphia's lineup, Edgin has a 9.64 ERA. Lefties are hitting .350 (7-for-20) against him.
Rice and Carson are now the two left-handers in the bullpen.
The Mets chose not to send Edgin to Triple-A Las Vegas, where it would have been more difficult to get on track because of the Pacific Coast League's offensive nature.
