Josh Edgin’s Out Pitches

According to Toby Hyde, St. Lucie reliever Josh Edgin

has a pair of big league pitches, a fastball that’s been 93ish and touched 96 on occasion and a wipeout slider in the low 80s. He’s played around with adding a two-seam fastball and a changeup, but his fastball and slider are his meal tickets.

With those “meal ticket” pitches, he’s been feasting on opposing batters. Given the Mets need for a better bullpen, if Edgin continues to mystify batters with his fastball and slider, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him invited to Spring Training in 2012.
