Carl Edwards Jr. joins Cubs on minor-league deal

Carl Edwards Jr. has signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards also gets an invitation to Spring Training where he will compete for a spot in the Cubs' bullpen this season. This is a reunion of sorts, as Edwards first broke into the bigs with the Cubs back in 2015. The right-handed reliever was with the Cubs until partway through the 2019 season, winning a World Series ring during his run with Chicago. Edwards has worn five different uniforms since then, working out of the Nationals' bullpen most recently. He posted a respectable 3.69 ERA across 31 2/3 innings in 2023 and holds a 3.54 mark over nearly 300 career MLB relief appearances.

Carl Edwards Jr. escapes with save Saturday against Rockies

Carl Edwards Jr. escaped the ninth inning with a save for the Nationals Saturday, allowing one run on three hits while also striking out one in one inning pitched in a 7-6 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards Jr. has been fairly reliable in relief to begin the season for the Nationals, holding opponents scoreless in three of his first four appearances on the mound for the club. The right-hander will be worth monitoring as there seems to be no clear-cut closing option at the beginning of the season for manager Dave Martinez and the Nationals.

Carl Edwards Jr. shuts the door Tuesday

Carl Edwards Jr. pitched 1 1/3 innnings, allowing one hit, one walk, and tallying three strikeouts to earn his first save of the season in a win over the Cubs Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards Jr. has been one of the more steady arms out of the Nats’ bullpen this season. The 30-year-old has a 3.35 ERA, .197 OBA, and a 1.95 K/BB ratio in 35 appearances this season.

Carl Edwards Jr. signs with the Washington Nationals

The Washington Nationals signed Edwards Jr to a Minor League deal on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards has only pitched 27 Major League innings since 2018 and they have not been great. Edwards bounced around three organizations last year and was solid in the Minors. He should be in Major League camp when the lockout ends and provide depth and experience to the Nationals bullpen.

Carl Edwards Jr. to sign minor league deal with the Braves

RP Carl Edwards Jr. and the Atlanta Braves have come to an agreement on a minor league deal.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards Jr. spent spring training with the Braves, where he posted a 1.08 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP over 8.1 innings pitched. Edwards Jr. ultimately decided to exercise his opt-out prior to the start of the 2021 season, but will return to the Braves on a minor league deal. Edwards Jr. will look to earn a spot in a talented Braves bullpen as the season progresses.
