4/25 C.J. Edwards update

Cubs Minor League pitcher C.J. Edwards, ranked No. 4 on MLB.com’s list of top 20 Cubs prospects, underwent an MRI on Friday, which revealed some fatigue and inflammation in his right shoulder. The good news is there was no structural damage. Edwards, 22, was examined in Chicago on Friday. He will rest for a couple weeks before starting a throwing program.

The right-hander had a 2.61 ERA in four starts for Double-A Tennessee. On Sunday, he gave up two runs on three hits and two walks over six innings against Birmingham. Edwards felt some discomfort in his shoulder during a side session. He was one of four players acquired from the Rangers for Matt Garza last July.

Edwards made one start in Spring Training for the Cubs, and gave up three runs on four hits and three walks over 2 2/3 innings.
