  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Moved to 60-day IL

    The Nationals transferred Edwards (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday. Edwards had been on the 15-day IL since June 21, so his move to the 60-day IL won't affect his timeline for a return but will open up a spot on the 40-man roster for catcher Drew Millas, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Rochester. Though Edwards began a rehab assignment two weeks ago, he made three appearances before suffering a setback with his right shoulder. He's since been diagnosed with a stress fracture, and it's unclear if he'll be able to pitch again at any point in 2023.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Out with stress fracture

    Edwards (shoulder) was shut down indefinitely Wednesday after being diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right scapula, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. The right-hander was already on the shelf with shoulder inflammation, and he apparently didn't feel right after his minor-league rehab outing over the weekend. It's unclear how long Edwards will be shut down from throwing, but the injury could end his campaign if he's unable to get back to throwing within the next couple weeks.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Begins rehab assignment

    Edwards (shoulder) started a rehab assignment with the Nationals' Florida Complex League team Monday. Edwards' first appearance with the FCL Nationals didn't go well, as he allowed three runs while recording just two outs. The veteran reliever has been sidelined since late June with right shoulder inflammation, so he figures to need a few more outings before rejoining the big club.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Set for simulated appearance

    Edwards (shoulder) is slated for a simulated appearance Friday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. That might be the final step before Edwards is cleared to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment. The 31-year-old reliever has been sidelined since June 21 due to right shoulder inflammation.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Resumes throwing

    Edwards (shoulder) resumed throwing earlier this week, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports. Edwards underwent an MRI last Wednesday, shortly after landing on the injured list, and it confirmed the initial diagnosis of right shoulder inflammation. If all goes well with his side work, he might be an option again for the Nationals' bullpen coming out of the All-Star break.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Sent for MRI on shoulder

    Edwards (shoulder) was sent for an MRI on his right shoulder Wednesday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports. Edwards landed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday afternoon with a diagnosis of right shoulder inflammation, but the imaging scans will provide a clearer overall scope of the issue. The 31-year-old had been shaping up as a strong trade candidate for the Nationals with a 3.69 ERA through 31.2 innings of setup duty. Maybe he can return sometime in July, ahead of the Aug. 1 trade deadline.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Lands on IL

    The Nationals placed Edwards on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with right shoulder inflammation, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. Washington opted to shut Edwards down after he experienced discomfort in his shoulder coming out of his most recent relief appearance in Monday's 8-6 loss to St. Louis. Though his initial diagnosis of inflammation rather than a shoulder sprain or strain bodes well for a speedy recovery, the Nationals aren't putting an official timeline on Edwards' return from the IL. The 31-year-old has been a key setup option this season, nabbing 13 holds, two saves and one win while accruing a 3.69 ERA over 32 appearances.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Secures second save

    Edwards picked up a save Thursday against the Astros, striking out one batter in a perfect inning. Hunter Harvey got the first stab at a save for Washington in the ninth inning, but he couldn't protect a 1-0 lead. After the Nationals scored three times in the top of the 10th, Edwards got the call, and he retired the side on 12 pitches (10 strikes). The save was his first since April 8, but with Kyle Finnegan pitching inconsistently of late and Harvey blowing the opportunity Thursday, Edwards could emerge as a more frequent closing option for manager Dave Martinez.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Rings up 13th hold

    Edwards gave up a hit in a scoreless seventh inning to record his 13th hold of the season in Friday's loss to Atlanta. The veteran reliever has matched his hold total from 2022 in less than half the appearances, but Edwards isn't exactly dominating. He's been scored upon in three of his last six games, and his 3.38 ERA on the season doesn't match his shaky 1.50 WHIP or mediocre 21:14 K:BB through 26.2 innings. The Nationals don't have many better options for high-leverage work, however, so Edwards figures to remain in a setup role barring a total meltdown.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Grabs first save

    Edwards earned a save against the Rockies on Saturday, allowing one run on three hits and striking out one batter over one inning. Kyle Finnegan opened the season as Washington's presumptive closer, but he was used in the eighth inning Saturday with Washington holding a five-run lead. After Anthony Banda allowed three baserunners without getting an out in the ninth, Edwards was brought in to shut the door in a save situation. The right-hander didn't look great, allowing an inherited runner to score as well as having a run charged to himself while surrendering three hits, but he was able to strike out Kris Bryant to close things out. It remains to be seen if Finnegan's recent blowup has dropped him out of the closer role -- if that's the case, Edwards could see more ninth-inning opportunities despite his shaky save Saturday.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Might be ninth-inning option

    Edwards could see save chances if Kyle Finnegan gets shifted into a fireman role rather than being used as a traditional closer, Bobby Blanco of MASN reports. Finnegan still seems likely to see the majority of save chances for the Nationals this season, but there could be saves up for grabs if the right-hander gets the call earlier in games in tight situations. Edwards would be just one of many candidates who could benefit, with Hunter Harvey, Alex Colome, Sean Doolittle (elbow) and Mason Thompson also in the mix depending on matchups and performance. Edwards' reduced velocity was a concern early in camp, but he hasn't allowed an earned run in his last two Grapefruit League appearances while posting a 3:0 K:BB. The 31-year-old had a solid 2022 campaign in a setup role for the Nats, recording double-digit holds for the first time since 2018.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Concerns about velocity

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez expressed concern Friday about Edwards' dip in velocity, Andrew Golden of the Washington Post reports. Edwards said he feels fine, but all of his pitches have been down at least a couple of ticks. Maybe that's just part of a routine spring-training buildup, but Martinez told reporters that the situation would be reevaluated Saturday. Edwards was knocked around for four earned runs while recording only one out Friday in a Grapefruit League appearance against the Mets.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Nabs win against former club

    Edwards (4-3) earned the win in Monday's 5-4 victory over the Cubs, striking out two in a perfect eighth inning. With the score tied 4-4, Edwards came in to face the team he made his big-debut with back in 2015 and had little difficulty with the bottom of the Cubs' order. The 30-year-old has moved into a high-leverage role with the Nationals, picking up two saves and a win in his last four appearances, and since the All-Star break he's posted a somewhat lucky 3.24 ERA to go with a 1.92 WHIP and 7:5 K:BB over 8.1 innings.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Possible waiver wire pickups

    The presumption when the Nationals lost Tanner Rainey for the year was that Kyle Finnegan would step into the closer role, and he did record the team's first three saves thereafter. But Carl Edwards has recorded the past two, including one Saturday, and in both instances, Finnegan helped set up for him. So is Edwards the closer now? Well, he does have a lower ERA than Finnegan and has been more of a bat-misser in his past. Not so much this year. As bad as the Nationals are, any amount of mixing and matching at the end of games could make the juice not worth the squeeze, but at this point, Edwards should be rostered in more than just 1 percent of leagues.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Secures second save

    Edwards notched a save against the Padres on Saturday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter in a scoreless ninth inning. Kyle Finnegan appeared to emerge as Washington's closer of choice in July, but he handled the seventh inning Saturday and pitched a scoreless frame to pick up the win. It was Edwards who was chosen to close the contest, and he worked around a two-out single to record the save. It may be premature to assume that Finnegan is out as closer, but it's certainly worth noting that Edwards has picked up the past two Washington saves. He's posted a 3.24 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 40:20 K:BB over 41.2 innings on the campaign.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Nabs third win

    Edwards (3-3) picked up the win in Sunday's victory over the Diamondbacks, allowing one hit and walking one over 1.1 scoreless innings. The right-hander entered the game in the sixth inning with the Nationals down 3-2, and Edwards got rewarded when Keibert Ruiz drove home the winning run in the top of the eighth. Edwards has been effective since joining the Washington bullpen in May, and the 30-year-old has a 3.03 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 35:16 K:BB through 35.2 innings this season, adding seven holds in 30 appearances.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Moving to majors

    The Nationals selected Edwards' contract from Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday. Edwards received a well-deserved call-up to the big leagues after he struck out 17 hitters and issued four walks over 14.1 innings at Rochester while submitting an 0.63 ERA and 0.50 WHIP. The 30-year-old has seven prior years of MLB experience, but he's seen sporadic work in the big leagues in each of the last three seasons while turning in a 7.90 ERA over that stretch.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Sent to minor-league camp

    Edwards was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Edwards served as a non-roster invitee this spring after landing a minor-league deal with the Nationals in late February. However, he'll begin the season at Triple-A Rochester after he gave up five runs on five hits and three walks while striking out one in five innings across five appearances (one start) during Grapefruit League play.

  • Nationals' Carl Edwards: Signs with Nationals

    Edwards signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Edwards spent most of the 2021 campaign in the minors and logged a 2.65 ERA and 0.76 WHIP in 17 innings across 18 relief appearances at the Triple-A level. The right-hander will likely be at big-league camp once the lockout is over, but he hasn't made double-digit appearances in the majors since 2019.

  • White Sox's Carl Edwards: Inks MiLB deal with ChiSox

    Edwards signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Monday. He was assigned to Triple-A Charlotte. Edwards will fill the spot in the Charlotte bullpen that opened up when Matt Foster was promoted to the White Sox on Wednesday. Before inking the minor-league deal with Chicago, Edwards appeared in seven games at the MLB level between Atlanta and Toronto, working 5.2 innings while giving up seven earned runs on 11 hits and three walks.
