New York Mets Roster Transactions 2012: Josh Edgin Called Up To Replace Dillon Gee

The New York Mets have announced that they will call up relief pitcher Josh Edgin on Friday to replace Dillon Gee on their active roster.

Edgin, a 25-year old lefty, has yet to make his major league debut after being drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the 50th round of the 2009 MLB Amateur Draft. He is 3-2 with a 3.89 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 37 innings over 35 appearances in Triple-A Buffalo this season.

Gee will undergo surgery Friday in St. Louis to replace a portion of damaged artery, and is expected to miss the remainder of the season. He was released from the hospital on Wednesday after being admitted for a blood clot in his right (pitching) shoulder. The surgery is designed to keep Gee from getting another similar blood clot in the future.
