Carl Edwards Jr. signs with the Mariners

Carl Edwards Jr. signed with the Mariners on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards will get $900,000 and could earn up to $500,000 in incentives. He struggled in 2019, he owned a 1-1 record, 8.47 ERA, 1.47 WHIP with 19 strikeouts across 17 innings. In 2018, Edwards was one of the better setup men in the majors, he owned a 2.60 ERA and a 67:32 K:BB. If Edwards is able to rebound in 2020, he could solidify the closer role for a Seattle team that lacks a ninth-inning option.

Carl Edwards Jr. traded to Padres

Cubs reliever Carl Edwards Jr. was traded to the San Diego Padres in exchange for reliever Brad Wieck just before Wednesday's 4pm trade deadline.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards Jr. has electric stuff but dealt with a back injury earlier this season and then never seemed quite right after he came back. He has a 5.87 ERA over 20 appearances this season but had ERAs of 2.60 and 2.98 in 2018 and 2017, respectively. The Padres are hoping that a change of scenery and some time to find his footing will help the 27-year-old rediscover his form.

C.J. Edwards earns the win Wednesday versus Arizona

C.J. Edwards went two strong innings Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks. He would not allow any runs and would earn the victory when the Cubs broke free of the tie.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards was seen as the next-in-line if something happened to Morrow. As it turns out, Morrow is now injured but instead Maddon seems to be using Edwards mostly whenever he feels the key point of the late game is. There have been no saves this season but Edwards still has plenty of value in leagues that reward holds.

C.J. Edwards solid Thursday and could see some save opportunities

C.J. Edwards went an inning Thursday versus the Cardinals. He would allow a run but did his job to help hold the lead. While Morrow is out, Edwards could share save opportunities with Pedro Strop.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards is a strong pitcher and is a good add in leagues that reward holds. The short-term gain of save chances also helps his value.

C.J. Edwards makes first appearance since injury Friday

C.J. Edwards returned from a fairly long injury and struck out the only batter he faced Friday versus Cincinnati. The recovery took longer than originally suggested but he is back now.

Fantasy Impact

If Edwards can return to his old form, he would likely return to his role as the backup closer option to Morrow. The Cubs bullpen looks to be stronger now that he has returned.
