NEW YORK -- The New York Mets have optioned struggling reliever Josh Edgin to Double-A Binghamton, opening a roster spot for pitcher Shaun Marcum to come off the disabled list.

Edgin was 0-1 with a 9.64 ERA in 11 appearances. New York manager Terry Collins says the team sent the left-hander to Binghamton rather than Triple-A Las Vegas so he can be recalled quickly if needed, and to keep him out of the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League as he tries to regain his confidence.

Marcum was set to start Saturday against the Philadelphia Phillies in his Mets debut. The right-hander began the season on the DL with a sore neck and biceps. He signed a $4 million, one-year contract in January after spending the past two years with Milwaukee.
