If you want the abridged version of Carl Edward’s Jr.’s season, look at the final two batters he faced. Edwards made Chris Taylor look silly, striking him out on three straight curveballs. Immediately before that, however, he walked Yu Darvish on four straight fastballs, despite Darvish looking more like he was trying to psyche someone out in Baseketball than trying to do anything related to baseball. In short, Edwards’ 2017 was excellent except when he couldn’t throw the ball over the strike zone, but such is life for Carl’s Jr. It’s no different from his 2016 or any season he spent in the minors. Edwards still strikes out over a third of the batters he faces, but boy, when he loses control, he loses it big time.
