Carl Edward Jr.'s return to Chicago didn't last long.
Three days -- and one appearance -- after being called up from Triple-A, Edwards is reportedly headed back to Iowa:
His lone appearance over the weekend came in the last inning of Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Padres, facing four batters before getting the last out. He allowed one earned run on one hit, but both walked and hit a batter; the two runners he inherited would score as well.
It's been a rough season for righty, who's spent much of the year on the IL or in Iowa. Back in early June, he was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left thoracic strain. When healthy, he's pitched 15.1 innings to the tune of a 5.87 ERA and 1.11 WHIP.
Up in his place is Rowan Wick, who himself has seen time in both Chicago and Iowa this season. Wick's latest stretch in Triple-A has been lights out:
Carl Edwards, Jr. is being sent down to Triple-A and Rowan Wick is being called back up. Wick since he was last sent down: 22 batters faced over 6 2/3 IP, 0 runs, 2 hits allowed, 1 walk and 10 strikeouts.— Sahadev Sharma (@sahadevsharma) July 22, 2019
