Update – 5:26 p.m.: Pedro Feliciano has been selected to join the Mets. Feliciano last pitched in the major leagues with the Mets in 2010.

Feliciano posted a 1.29 ERA and 0.857 WHIP in 21 innings across three levels of minor leagues this season.

Edgin was really throwing the ball well before this injury. It’s a shame this had to happen.

I wonder how the Mets are going to play this roster move. The Mets were playing short on the bench with the extra arm in the bullpen, but if he goes with a bat, that would leave them with only one left-handed reliever in the bullpen. From a pitching perspective, Robert Carson is an option – he is the only other left-handed pitcher on the 40-man roster in the minor leagues, although he hasn’t shown much at the big league level this year. I wonder though if this opens an opportunity for Pedro Feliciano or Tim Byrdak, although both would need to be added to the 40-man roster…
