    Edwards was pitching like one of the best relievers in the country for the first half of the season, but went down with an injury after an April 7 outing against South Carolina—his worst of the season. In his first 10 appearances and 23.1 innings, the multi-inning righty posted a 1.93 ERA with a .184 opponent batting average, 29% strikeout rate and 5.4% walk rate. Edwards doesn’t have the smoothest arm action, but he throws a mid-90s fastball that has touched 97, spins a solid mid-80s slider with sweeping action and also has some feel for a tumbling, mid-80s changeup. He was trending toward the top 10 rounds but his injury status could complicate his draft stock.
