Mets place Josh Edgin on disabled list, call up Pedro Feliciano from Triple-A Las Vegas

One current Mets injury has opened the door for an old face to return.

Matt Ehalt of ESPN New York says Josh Edgin is headed to the disabled list with a stress fracture in his rib. Edgin doesn't know what caused the injury, but believes it will take at least a month to recover from.

After a terrible April and demotion, Edgin rebounded in June and July to allow just two earned runs in 19⅓ innings. With a 3.77 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and mediocre 20/12 strikeout to walk ratio in 28⅔ innings, Edgin's season still has been rough overall. Oddly enough, his numbers against righties (.602 OPS) have been significantly better than his numbers against lefties (.770 OPS)

To replace Edgin on the roster, the Mets have called up former Met LOOGY Pedro Feliciano from Triple-A Las Vegas. Feliciano, who hasn't pitched in the majors since 2010, was a bullpen stalwart for the Mets from 2006-2010, tallying 408 appearances and 299 innings in those five season.

Feliciano left the Mets after the 2010 season, signing a two-year deal with the New York Yankees, but he never pitched a game for them, requiring surgery for a torn shoulder capsule in 2011. The Mets signed him to a minor league deal last offseason. Feliciano has pitched 21 minor league innings this season, posting a 1.29 ERA while striking out 19 and walking four.

For his career, he's held left-handed batters to a .522 OPS
