      Carl Edwards: Bound for free agency

      Carl Edwards (forearm) refused an outright assignment to Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday and became a free agent.Edwards was looking to have a bounce-back season in Seattle after struggling to an 8.47 ERA in 2019. While he did post a 1.93 ERA and 0.64 WHIP with the Mariners, that came in just 4.2 innings. He developed arm problems early in August and never returned to the mound. That injury and his recent struggles mean he'll have significant question marks heading into 2021.

      Mariners' Carl Edwards: Shuttered for season

      Seattle transferred Carl Edwards (forearm) on the 45-day injured list Thursday.While Edwards is expected to avoid Tommy John surgery after he was diagnosed earlier this month with a flexor mass strain in his elbow, his move to the 45-day IL indicates that his recovery timeline will extend through the end of the season. Edwards will be entering his third year of arbitration this winter, so the Seattle Mariners will likely monitor his recovery carefully before determining if he's worth keeping around on the 40-man roster into the 2021 campaign.

      Mariners' Carl Edwards: Injury not considered serious

      Carl Edwards (forearm) is only expected to miss a couple of weeks, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.After Edwards was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday, manager Scott Servais said that he has a strain in his flexor mass in his elbow that isn't considered serious. The right-hander is only expected to miss a couple of weeks, but that absence will be more significant during the 60-game season in 2020. However, the team expects him to return before the end of the season.

      Mariners' Carl Edwards: Placed on 10-day IL

      Carl Edwards was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right forearm strain Monday.Edwards has been dominant for the Seattle Mariners this season and picked up his first save of 2020 during his most recent appearance, but he'll now be sidelined for several games. The move is retroactive to Friday, so the right-hander would be eligible to return in the middle of next week, but it's unclear whether he'll be able to do so. Bryan Shaw was recalled from alternate camp in a corresponding move, and Taylor Williams could have more ninth-inning opportunities in Edwards' absence.

      Mariners' Carl Edwards: Earns save against Angels

      Carl Edwards notched his first save of the season Wednesday against the Angels. He tossed a scoreless inning, striking out two.Edwards has looked impressive to start the season, tossing four straight scoreless appearances while fanning six in 3.2 innings across that stretch. It remains to be seen if he will handle the closer role on a permanent basis moving forward, but he should remain one of Seattle's main relievers for the foreseeable future.

      Mariners' Carl Edwards: Impressing early

      Carl Edwards, who fired a scoreless sixth inning during which he allowed a hit and recorded two strikeouts in a win over the Astros on Sunday, has been impressing manager Scott Servais with his stuff since summer camp began, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "C.J.'s stuff has really started to come back," Servais said. "The last couple outings you've seen the velocity come and he's got good late movement to his fastball. We're going to need him. He's one of the guys with some experience in our bullpen. It's nice to see the ball coming out his hand good again."The 28-year-old arrived in Seattle looking to put an utterly forgettable 2019 behind him, a season he finished with an 8.47 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 22 appearances with the Cubs and Padres. Sunday's ultra-efficient outing -- one in which he threw eight of 11 pitches for strikes while mowing down Martin Maldonado and Jose Altuve on swinging strikeouts -- was preceded by an Opening Night appearance in which the one hit and run he allowed came on a Carlos Correa flyball that Jose Marmolejos lost sight of in left field. Edwards use for an inning apiece in two of the first three games of the season would seem to bode well for his overall volume expectations, considering he proved capable of handling a heavy workload during multiple seasons with the Cubs earlier in his career.

      Mariners' Carl Edwards Jr.: Likely keeper despite rough spring

      Carl Edwards is likely to secure an Opening Day roster spot in the Seattle Mariners' bullpen despite posting a 9.00 ERA across six Cactus League appearances before spring training was suspended, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.The hard-throwing right-hander entered camp looking to redeem himself after a disastrous 2019 in which he generated an 8.47 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 22 appearances with the Cubs and Padres. Prior to that season-long hiccup, Edwards was one of baseball's most effective seventh- and eighth-inning options, posting sub-3.00 ERAs and a combined 48 holds during the 2017 and 2018 campaigns in Chicago. This spring, Edwards eliminated some tweaks he'd made to his delivery prior to last season that clearly proved ineffective; although those corrections haven't paid immediate dividends, the upside he offers based on his past body of work certainly boosts his job prospects.

      Mariners' Carl Edwards Jr.: Confident after adjusting delivery

      Carl Edwards has worked on his mechanics this offseason in an effort to rediscover his electric fastball, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.Edwards recalls messing with his mechanics early last season by adding a pause in his pitching motion to try to improve his command. This adjustment proved to be unsuccessful as the 28-year-old finished 2019 with a 8.47 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 19:13 K:BB across only 17 major-league innings with the Cubs and Padres. After signing with Seattle Mariners in late November the right-hander told reporters, "I just have to go back to simplifying things and making everything better". Seattle's manager Scott Servais expects to pitch his newly-acquired reliever in some higher-leverage spots and has already complimented the combination of velocity and movement on his pitches. Edwards will look to improve a Mariners' bullpen that finished 22nd in the league with a 4.76 ERA last season.

      Mariners' Carl Edwards Jr.: Signs with Seattle

      Carl Edwards signed with the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.Edwards will receive $950,000 and could earn an additional $500,000 in incentives. The 28-year-old broke into the league with a 3.06 ERA over his first four seasons with the Cubs but struggled to an awful 8.47 ERA in 17 innings in 2019. The good version of Edwards could become the closer for a Mariners team which lacks an obvious ninth-inning option, but the bad version will struggle to stay in the league.
