Prospect Watch: Cubs’ C.J. Edwards

The Chicago Cubs have something this season that I don’t remember them ever having — a number one rated farm system. Now this rating came along about nine months ago when they jumped to the top of the list and at some point they’re bound to fall off as they’ve been promoting a few top guys this season. But number one or not, they’ve still got a plethora of talent in the...

Chicago Cubs Prospect Profile: C.J. Edwards

It is no secret that ever since Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer arrived in Chicago, that the Chicago Cubs have been relentless in their efforts to obtain some of the best young offensive talents available.  Baseball America has Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, Jorge Soler, and Kyle Schwarber all in their top 20.  Keith Law had Bryant and Soler as his top two impact prospects...

Cubs 40-Man Roster Moves

The Cubs have put C.J. Edwards on the 40-man and that is the extent of their Rule 5 deadline roster moves. You can check out AZ Phil's full list of Rule 5 eligibles if you wish, but I don't see any obvious names that will get selected. Maybe Zach Cates or Ivan Pineyro or Starling Peralta, but there's certainly no one on there that folks should all be too worried about losing even...

The Best Cubs Prospect You Dont Know About

Cubs fans have long heard about the glut of hitting prospects within the farm system, headlined by Kris Bryant, Kyle Schwarber, and Addison Russell. Conversely, Cubs fans have heard about the severe lack of good pitching within the minor leagues. While, as a whole, the Cubs are much stronger hitting wise, the Cubs certainly have a few blue chip pitching prospects. No pitcher might...

The Chicago Cubs Prospect No One is Talking About

The headline Cubs prospects are well known by now: Baez, Bryant, Soler, Almora and Edwards just to name a few; but there is one prospect no one is talking about. He doesn’t hit 400-foot homeruns or throw 98 mile per hour heaters; he’s a 19-year-old Taiwanese pitcher, and his name is Jen-Ho Tseng. Scouting report With velocity between 89- 93, topping out at 95, he’s got plenty...

Chicago Cubs Top Pitching Prospect Makes Return

C.J. Edwards, the Chicago Cubs top pitching prospect, recently returned to the mound after being out since April 20th with a shoulder injury. It’s not a secret that the Cubs farm system is loaded with position players, but Edwards might be one of a very small number of pitchers in the Cubs minor league system that make it to the majors. Edwards made his return to the bump for the...

C. J. Edwards Faces Diamondbacks at Riverview Park

The AZL Diamondbacks took advantage of four walks (including three bases-loaded walks that forced-in three runs) to plate seven runs in the 5th inning, and cruised to a 12-6 victory over the AZL Cubs Monday night at Cubs Park at Riverview Park  in Mesa, AZ. Gleyber Torres grounded out to end the game, but before that he reached base four consecutive times (single, walk, RBI single...

Minor League Recap 5/8 – 5/15

Well, let’s get right into it…C.J. Edwards is still being held out with shoulder stiffness.  Obviously, that’s not exactly what we wanted to hear about Edwards.  However, with the abundance of caution taken with Jake Arrieta, this isn’t a big surprise.  In the mean time, let’s continue to hope that’s all it is.  An MRI showed no structural damage, so in that regard...
