CHICAGO, IL.– The Cubs bullpen is getting the much needed help after dropping 3 games to Pittsburgh. Carl Edwards Jr. is back from the bereavement list and has been severely needed lately. The bullpen has been shaky and hurting the Cubs, but with Edwards back he could straighten things out.
Edwards has pitched 4 2/3 scoreless innings in five appearances, allowing one hit, walking three and striking out four. He was placed on the bereavement list on Friday and missed the last three games.
Chicago cleared a roster spot by placing infielder Tommy La Stella on the bereavement list.
