Synopsis - CJ faced 3 batters and struck out the side for the 2nd time this season. He hadn't seen the mound since the last game in Chicago so it was good to see him still locked in. His fastball was between 95-96 and the good ole Uncle Charlie was working. Edwards Jr. has only allowed 2 runs in 21 appearances. He is 1-0 with a 0.95 ERA, 8 walks and 27 strikeouts. Opponents are hitting .098 (6-61) and have a .203 on base percentage.
That All-Star nod is a lock if CJ continues at this pace.
OVERALL GRADE - A
