The Mets could have a hole in their bullpen if left reliever Josh Edgin’s elbow injury turns serious. Edgin was scheduled for a MRI Tuesday and the Mets could have the results tomorrow.

If not Matz, then who?

“I was only scheduled to go three innings. I’m right on schedule,’’ Colon told reporters. “I’ve got command of all my pitches. I’m hoping to go at least four innings in my next start. Overall, I feel pretty good.’’
