RP - CWS - MiLB
RP Carl Edwards Jr. and the Atlanta Braves have come to an agreement on a minor league deal.
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.
Mariners RHP Carl Edwards Jr. has elected to become a free agent.
Edwards was sent outright to Triple-A but will instead look to sign with a different organization this offseason. He dealt with injuries this year and pitched just 4 2/3 innings. He could serve in middle relief for a club come 2021.
The Mariners transferred Carl Edwards Jr. to the 45-day injured list.
Edwards was diagnosed with a flexor mass strain in his right elbow. The move to the 45-day injured list indicates that his season is most likely over. Edwards owns a 1.93 ERA, 0.64 WHIP and six strikeouts across four 2/3 innings in 2020.
Carl Edwards Jr. recorded a hold and allowed zero hits with a strikeout across two thirds of an inning of work in the Mariners' 8-5 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday.
Edwards recorded his first hold with his new team on Thursday and continues to progress after a disastrous 2019 campaign derailed his promising career. The right-hander only holds value in leagues that count holds but has a chance to climb the ladder in Seattle or elsewhere if traded at the deadline.
Carl Edwards Jr. allowed no hits with a walk and a strikeout across one inning of work in the Mariners 7-3 Cactus League loss to the Chicago Cubs.
Edwards has bounced back well after a rough first outing in which he surrendered three earned runs, throwing back-to-back scoreless innings with three punch outs. While Edwards is only draftable in very large leagues that credits for holds, he is someone to watch as a bounce back from a tough 2019 campaign could lead to save opportunities.
