Carl Edwards Jr. was optioned to Triple-A since he totally mislaid his authority early in 2019. Rather than being discouraged, CJ worked his boundary off in Iowa and put adult an intensely enlivening 2.16 BB/9 in only underneath 9 innings. That clever opening in a minors warranted him a call behind to Wrigley Field, where he done his initial lapse opening opposite a Miami Marlins on Monday. Edwards available a scoreless inning with no walks Monday night all while showcasing a informed recover point.
Before Edwards Jr. was sent to Iowa this season, his four-seamer recover indicate was scarcely low by about 1.5 inches. But in his tour opposite Miami on Monday night, CJ’s recover indicate was aloft and behind to his 2017-2018 recover indicate range, as shown below.
It’s probable that Carl’s recover indicate isn’t a poignant cause in his command. In reality, we severely doubt that his softened authority is only attributed to only lifting his recover point. It’s some-more expected that whatever other changes he’s done has translated to a somewhat aloft recover point. Still, even yet Carl looked opposite in a good approach Monday night, we’ll need several some-more appearances before combining any clever opinions about why his authority has — hopefully — been better.
