New York Mets reliever Josh Edgin is done for the season and will have elbow-ligament replacement surgery this week.
General manager Sandy Alderson updated the status of the lefthander Sunday. The loss of Edgin puts the Mets' bullpen in a difficult spot.
Edgin had an MRI last week that showed a stretched elbow ligament and bone spur. The Mets gave him the option of pursuing non-surgical rehabilitation or surgery. Edgin sought a second opinion from surgeon James Andrews before choosing to have surgery.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jason Bourgeois is going to be out four to six weeks with a fracture in his left shoulder.
The 33-year-old was trying to win a job as the Reds' fourth outfielder.
Bourgeois left the game against the Rockies on Saturday after a successful sacrifice bunt. He collapsed, holding his arm a third of the way down the first base line.
Manager Bryan Price said Bourgeois felt something in his shoulder in the Reds' first Cactus League game on March 2.
Out with a sneeze
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar is being sidelined - by a sneeze.
Pillar is expected to miss a week to 10 days with an oblique strain.
Pillar, who is in contention for a starting spot, said he sneezed and felt a sharp pain in his right side, but opted not to tell team trainers about it until after he was pulled in the fifth inning of Toronto's win over a Yankees split squad.
Following treatment, Pillar was advised to rest.
Pillar is batting .269 with one home run and five RBIs in 26 plate appearances this spring.
