Rays' Xavier Edwards: Back from injured list at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Double-A Montgomery reinstated Edwards (oblique) from the 7-day injured list Tuesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Edwards landed on the IL with the oblique issue in early May, and after a month-long absence, he looks ready to make his 2021 and organization debut. The 21-year-old switch-hitting infielder slashed .301/.349/.367 over 217 plate appearances at High-A Lake Elsinore in 2019 as a member of the Padres organization. Tampa Bay acquired Edwards in the deal that sent Tommy Pham and Jake Cronenworth to San Diego prior to the 2020 campaign.

Rays' Xavier Edwards: Out with oblique injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards is opening the year on the 7-day injured list with Double-A Montgomery due to an oblique injury, Sam Dykstra of MLB.com reports.

He suffered the injury in minor-league camp, but the Rays don't think the injury is serious. Edwards is expected back sometime this month.

Rays' Xavier Edwards: Joins player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards was added to the Rays' player pool Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Edwards came over from the Padres in the Tommy Pham trade over the winter. He's an interesting prospect, with plenty of speed and the ability to hit for average, though he's unlikely to help the Rays this season as he's yet to reach Double-A.

Rays' Xavier Edwards: Shipped to Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards was traded from the Padres to the Rays on Thursday along with Hunter Renfroe in exchange for Tommy Pham, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. Prospect Jake Cronenworth was later reported to be included with Pham in the move to the Padres.

Edwards finished the 2019 season with High-A Lake Elsinore, slashing .301/.349/.367 with 13 RBI and 14 stolen bases over 46 contests. Though he's not a threat to leave the yard, his speed and ability to hit for average earned him the No. 5 spot in the Padres' farm system, according to MLB Pipeline. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Edwards begin the year at Double-A Montgomery.

Padres' Xavier Edwards: Moves up to High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards advanced to High-A Lake Elsinore on Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Edwards earns a deserved promotion after hitting .336/.392/.414 in 77 games for Low-A Fort Wayne. He makes a lot of contact (10.2 percent strikeout rate) and has excellent speed (20 steals), though he has almost no power (just one career professional home run).

Padres' Xavier Edwards: Drills first career homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored for Low-A Fort Wayne on Thursday.

Edwards has been raking for the TinCaps all season, but this performance was notable in that he homered in the fourth inning, marking his first long ball at any professional level. Despite the lack of power, he's hit very well throughout his minor-league career, as he's slashing .336/.414/.400 since he was drafted in 2018. If Thursday's long ball is a sign he's set to add more power to his game, it would be a big addition to his profile, as he's already clearly a skilled offensive prospect.

Padres' Xavier Edwards: Still raking in Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and three runs for Low-A Fort Wayne on Thursday.

Edwards has cooled a little bit since his blazing hot start to the season for the TinCaps that at one point saw him hitting .378, but not by much. This multi-hit effort brings the 19-year-old's slash line up to .349/.402/.410 through 229 at-bats as he continues to toy with Midwest League pitching. He has little left to prove in Low-A, although his youth and lack of power (he still has yet to homer at the professional level) could mean the Padres will wait at least a little while longer before bumping him up a level.

Padres' Xavier Edwards: Tearing up Midwest League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs and a walk for Low-A Fort Wayne on Monday.

Edwards continues to rake at a torrid clip for the TinCaps, as his latest multi-hit day brings his batting average up to a Midwest League-leading .378 through 164 at-bats. The 19-year-old still hasn't hit a homer, so the lack of power is the one nitpick on his superb start to the season, but Edwards is still slugging .439, so it's not like he's hitting all singles. In addition to average, he's currently leading the Midwest League in hits (62) and on-base percentage (.435).

Padres' Xavier Edwards: Continues to hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards went 3-for-4 with two walks, a stolen base and a run for Low-A Fort Wayne on Thursday, Bill Center of Padres.com reports.

The three-hit day raises Edwards' average to .370 over 100 at-bats for Fort Wayne. He's also flashing impressive plate discipline with a 10:13 K:BB that leaves him with a .440 on-base percentage, which has helped him rack up 11 stolen bases. While he's off to a great start at the dish when it comes to making contact, he has no homers and just 13 extra-base hits in his first 259 professional at-bats.
