Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Picks up win Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (5-4) grabbed the win in Friday's game against the Brewers. He pitched 1.2 scoreless innings, allowing one walk and striking out two.

Edwards recorded two outs in the ninth inning, then closed out the Brewers in the bottom of the 10th. Closer Wade Davis threw 29 pitches on Thursday, otherwise he likely would have gotten the 10th. Edwards' ability to go more than an inning and strike batters out (12.9 K/9) makes him a valuable member of Chicago's bullpen, although his fantasy value is only moderate in leagues that don't count holds.

Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Records hold Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards pitched a perfect eighth inning with a strikeout in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Rays to record his 23rd hold of the season.

The 23 holds are good for third in the National League, as Edwards has been a key late-inning reliever for the Cubs. His 12.9 K/9 speaks to how nasty he's been. Edwards is a strong fantasy asset in leagues that count holds, but his strikeout potential gives him some value in other leagues as well.

Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Takes loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (3-4) was tagged with his fourth blown save of the season and a loss Tuesday against the Pirates. In 1.1 innings of work, he allowed three hits, two walks and two earned runs.

Edwards was able to record the final out of the seventh inning after coming on in relief of Kyle Hendricks, but he ran into trouble in the eighth. He allowed a leadoff walk followed by a single, which put runners on the corners with no outs. Two more singles and a wild pitch in the inning plated two Pittsburgh runs. Edwards simply didn't have his best stuff in this one, but with a solid 3.49 ERA and elite 12.9 K/9, better days should be ahead for the 26-year-old.

Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Nabs 21st hold Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards allowed a hit and a walk, but still pitched a clean eighth inning Thursday against the Braves to record his 21st hold of the season.

The 21 holds puts Edwards in sixth place in the National League in that category. He also struck out another batter Thursday, and his elite 12.9 K/9 makes him an interesting option, especially in leagues that count holds.

Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Grabs another hold Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards recorded his 18th hold of the season in Friday's win over the Blue Jays by retiring both batters he faced.

Edwards came on for Jake Arrieta in the seventh inning and retired two hitters on 10 pitches, including one via strikeout. Edwards is tied for seventh in the National League in holds, making him a useful player in formats that count the stat. He's also got an elite 13.0 K/9, which gives him some value across all fantasy formats.
