(CBS) — The Chicago Cubs have selected the contract of right-handed pitcher C.J. Edwards from Double-A Tennessee, the team announced Thursday.
Chicago’s 40-man roster now stands at 39 players.
Edwards, 23, is 14-7 with a 1.86 ERA (49 ER/237.0 IP) in 50 minor-league outings (49 starts) covering the last three seasons.
The Newbury, S.C. native was acquired by the Cubs as part of the trade that sent Matt Garza to Texas in 2013.
