Sent to AAA.

Good thing too, he was scuffling. There's a long list of pitchers who were sent to AAA and came back with their sh*t together and went on to be pretty good.

Check how he's doing in the minors and file his name away for later.

Who's the freakin' genius who came up with this?:

Carl Edwards new delivery

Apparently, Carl Edwards had a new delivery where he goes into his windup, brings his front leg down and then stops. And then proceeds to throw the pitch. Looks horrible.

Thankfully, the Rangers complained and the league ruled it illegal.

So far Edwards has made 3 appearances - one clean inning and two times where he's given up a total of 5 runs while getting zero outs. His ERA is currently a full Trump.

Hopefully, he'll right the ship and go back to being the high-K guy with closer potential that we all thought he was, and get that ERA back to under a Jefferson, where it belongs. 

Until he gets it right, he'll sit on my bench in favor of Richard Rodriquez.

Carl Edwards Jr. (P) CHI-N - Mar. 14

Manager Joe Maddon wouldn't commit to using Edwards as the Cubs' closer if Brandon Morrow (elbow) and Pedro Strop (hamstring) are both unavailable to begin the season, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. "[Edwards] is so good at maybe shutting something down in the seventh or eighth [inning], I would not run away from that," Maddon said of Edwards' potential future as a closer.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Morrow is already a safe bet to open the season on the injured list, but Strop's status is more in limbo since he's at least been able to throw off flat ground lately and could clear up any concern about his health by pitching in a Cactus League game or two before spring training closes. In the event Strops fails to progress as hoped, Edwards said he would be ready to fill the ninth-inning role if needed, but Maddon's comments suggest the Cubs could look elsewhere in save situations.

Another player who doesn't seem to come up in all the searches. I've changed his first name from C.J. to Carl -- maybe that will help.

Now what to bid for him? More than $3 in 4x4, for sure, as things stand today.
