Carl Edwards Jr. was walking nearly one batter per inning not too long ago. The inability to effectively locate his trademark fastball led to an inflated 6+ ERA between July 1 and August 11. On August 12, I published a post here on Cubs Insider illustrating just how bad his command had been.
As if on cue, the lanky righty hasn’t allowed a single walk since I clicked “publish.”
Yes, you read the italicized words above correctly. Since August 12 (5 IP), Edwards Jr. has allowed only a single run while striking out nine and walking absolutely no one.
