Edwards has appeared in only 27 games across the past two seasons. He was limited by shoulder problems in 2019 and missed most of last season because of a forearm strain. Before his latest injury, Edwards was a bright spot in a bad Mariners bullpen, owning a 1.93 ERA with six strikeouts against one walk in five appearances before going on the injured list in early August.
From 2016-18, Edwards was a productive member of the contending Cubs’ bullpen. He had a 3.03 ERA with 12.3 strikeouts per nine innings over that stretch (167 games).
