Mets Injury Updates:
- Catcher Travis d’Arnaud tried throwing today for the first time since going on the DL, down at Port St. Lucie and reportedly felt discomfort. Ultimately the Mets shut d’Arnaud down and it is unknown when he will resume throwing. Manager Terry Collins reportedly found the news “very discouraging.” It can be noted that d’Arnaud did some hitting on Thursday, but he is still having trouble throwing the ball. We can only hope that this injury doesn’t keep him out for a longer period of time.
- Mets Assistant GM John Ricco has announced that left-handed reliever Josh Edgin will remain in the minors with AAA Las Vegas when his rehab stint expires on Monday. Edgin has pitched well in eight appearances between St. Lucie and Las Vegas posting a 1.42 ERA, however there is no room in the Mets vaunted bullpen currently which leaves Edgin without a role. Edgin still hold options which allows the Mets to make the move for him to stay down in Las Vegas. Manager Terry Collins spoke earlier in the week on Edgin stating he wanted to see Edgin pitch on back-to-back days, as well as see more velocity on Edgin’s fastball. The Mets have a league best 2.69 bullpen ERA, which allows Edgin as much time as possible to get back to pre-Tommy John Surgery form.
