9/23/19:Junior, 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, durable/strong lower half. A weekend starter for the Panthers in 2019 and arguably the team’s most reliable arm, Edwards showed a solid three-pitch mix that he’s demonstrated real feel for. His pitchability was evident on Friday, coming hard out of the gate, sitting 90-91 mph early on. He backs up his fastball with a downer 12/6 breaking ball that he’s able to drop into the zone or bury beneath it; it tumbles hard with above-average action and feel. He also mixes in a straight change that he spots well and is effective as a third offering to round out his arsenal.
