    • Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Picks up first win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Edwards (1-1) pitched a scoreless inning with two strikeouts and earned the win in Wednesday's 3-2, 11-inning victory over the Marlins. Edwards has now tossed two hitless and scoreless innings since returning to the majors Monday. That's obviously a small sample, but it's a step in the right direction for the righty, as he allowed runs in three of four appearances before being sent down to Triple-A in early April. Edwards still has an unsightly 14.73 ERA, though he did post ERAs under 3.00 in each of the last two seasons, so he figures to keep whittling that number down.

    • Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Returns to big leagues
      By RotoWire Staff

      Edwards was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. Edwards was expected to continue his role as one of the Cubs' top setup men this season but allowed six runs while recording just five outs over his first four appearances as he struggled with his new delivery being deemed illegal. He should reclaim a high-leverage role now that he's back after he recorded a 2.16 ERA in 8.1 innings for Iowa. Dillon Maples was optioned in a corresponding move.

    • Edwards has a 2.57 ERA and is allowing opposing hitters to bat just .125 against him In seven innings with Triple-A Iowa. Edwards was sent down to Triple-A after a sluggish start to the season at the MLB level, and so far he's pitched well. The 27-year-old has a 7:2 K:BB with Iowa, which is an improvement from his 2:5 K:BB in just 1.2 innings with the Cubs this year. Edwards should be back up at some point if he continues to exhibit good control and post solid returns at Triple-A.

    • Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Returns to action at Iowa
      By RotoWire Staff

      Edwards (hand) threw a scoreless eighth inning with two strikeouts in Triple-A Iowa's win over Nashville on Wednesday. Making his return from the 7-day injured list, Edwards turned in probably his best outing at any level this season, retiring the side with two punchouts on 15 pitches (nine strikes). The Cubs decided to hit the reset button with Edwards after the right-hander walked five in his first 1.2 big-league innings of 2019. Once he's shown more consistency with his command and control, Edwards should be back up, but it will likely be a while before he sniffs the late innings again.

    • Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Lands on MiLB injured list
      By RotoWire Staff

      Edwards was placed on the minor-league injured list Wednesday with an abrasion on his right hand, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. It remains unclear how Edwards sustained the scrape on his pitching hand, but he'll take at least a week to recover on the 7-day IL. The 27-year-old appeared in three games after his demotion to Triple-A Iowa, allowing one run on two hits and a walk while striking out three over four innings.
