Blue Jays' Carl Edwards: Advances to bullpen work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (oblique) has begun throwing bullpen sessions, Arden Zwelling of reports.

Edwards is dealing with a strained left oblique and will be ineligible to return from the 60-day injured list before mid-August. However, given that he's already throwing bullpens several weeks before his stay expires, he seemingly has a good shot to be activated when first eligible.

Blue Jays' Carl Edwards: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (oblique) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

Edwards landed on the 10-day IL with a strained left oblique Wednesday, and the injury will apparently force him to miss at least two months. The righty won't be eligible to return until at least mid-August. Outfielder Jared Hoying's contract was selected as part of a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Carl Edwards: Out with oblique strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a strained left oblique.

Manager Charlie Montoyo said the right-hander was "for sure out" after exiting Tuesday's contest with the injury, and he's now officially been placed on the IL. The severity of the oblique strain remains unclear, though Edwards is likely to be sidelined beyond the 10-day minimum.

Blue Jays' Carl Edwards: Headed for IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Edwards (abdomen) is "for sure out" and will be placed on the 10-day injured list prior to Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Mitch Bannon of reports.

Toronto will officially place Edwards on the IL and announce a corresponding call-up shortly before Wednesday's 7:07 p.m. ET opening pitch. Montoyo indicated that Edwards will undergo an MRI after he exited Tuesday's game with left abdominal discomfort, so Toronto may not have a clear timeline for his return from the IL until the results of his tests are available.

Blue Jays' Carl Edwards: Suffers abdominal injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards was removed from Tuesday's loss to the Yankees with left abdominal discomfort, Keegan Matheson of reports.

The right-hander recorded an out and exited mid-at-bat after throwing three straight balls to his second batter faced. Edwards had his contract selected by the Blue Jays on May 30 and has struggled since the promotion with seven runs allowed over 5.1 frames before Tuesday's contest.

Blue Jays' Carl Edwards: Contract selected by Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards had his contract selected by the Blue Jays on Sunday, Keegan Matheson of reports.

The 29-year-old inked a minor-league deal with the Blue Jays in mid-May and will join the big-league roster after delivering four scoreless outings at Triple-A Buffalo. Edwards has struggled to find his place in the league over the past few years since posting a 2.60 ERA and 23 holds with the Cubs in 2018.

Blue Jays' Carl Edwards: Joins Toronto on minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Friday, reports.

Once a hyped prospect in the Cubs organization, Edwards dealt with numerous injuries and fizzled out with Chicago. He has bounced around a lot since; Atlanta was the latest club to cut ties with the right-hander. Edwards was assigned to Triple-A Buffalo, but given the injuries in the Jays' bullpen, it's possible he'll be up in the majors again before long.

Carl Edwards: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards cleared waivers and elected free agency Monday.

Edwards was designated for assignment Saturday, and he'll become a free agent rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A. The right-hander has made five relief appearances across the last two seasons and posted a 7.20 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in five innings during that time.

Braves' Carl Edwards: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards was designated for assignment Saturday.

Edwards spent just one day on Atlanta's active and 40-man rosters, and it didn't go well for him. He recorded just one out Friday against the Phillies, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk. He could return as bullpen depth at some point this season if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Braves' Carl Edwards: Contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards' contract was selected by Atlanta on Friday.

Edwards was a very good reliever in the not-too-distant past, posting a 3.06 ERA from 2015 through 2018. He stumbled to an 8.47 mark in 2019, however, and threw just 4.2 innings last year before suffering a forearm injury. If Edwards is somehow fully back in vintage form, he could throw high-leverage innings at some point this season, but that shouldn't be close to the default expectation given the way his recent seasons have gone.

Braves' Carl Edwards: Rejoins Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards signed a minor-league deal with Atlanta on Saturday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

The 29-year-old opted out of his minor-league contract with the Braves on March 25, but he'll now rejoin the organization after briefly testing free agency. Edwards had an 1.08 ERA and eight strikeouts across 8.1 innings during spring training.

Carl Edwards: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards opted out of his minor-league deal and became a free agent Thursday, Mark Bowman of reports.

Edwards made eight relief appearances for Atlanta this spring, posting a 1.08 ERA with eight strikeouts in 8.1 innings. He appeared to be on track to make the Opening Day roster, but he'll now search for another club ahead of the regular season.

Braves' Carl Edwards: Clean inning in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (forearm) struck out one over a 1-2-3 fourth inning Sunday in Atlanta's 9-7 win over the Rays in Grapefruit League play.

After missing most of the 2020 campaign with a flexor mass strain in his right elbow, Edwards was forced to settle for a minor-league deal with Atlanta this winter. With a 3.54 ERA and 32.9 K% over 199 career appearances in the majors, Edwards has a more impressive track record than most relievers attending camps as non-roster invitees. If he can stay healthy this spring, Edwards will have a good shot at earning a spot in the Opening Day bullpen.

Braves' Carl Edwards: Signs minor-league contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (forearm) signed a minor-league contract with Atlanta on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Edwards became a free agent in October after refusing an outright assignment from the Mariners, and he'll have to settle for a minor-league deal ahead of the 2021 campaign. The right-hander was shut down for most of the abbreviated 2020 season due to a flexor mass strain in his elbow, but he could compete for a spot in the major-league bullpen during spring training if he's healthy.

Carl Edwards: Bound for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seattle transferred 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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (forearm) is only expected to miss a couple of weeks, Greg Johns of 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.

August 10, 2020 02:20 PM
Mariners' Carl Edwards: Placed on 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right forearm strain Monday.

Edwards has been dominant for the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.
