at Winston-Salem: 1-0, 7.00 ERA, 9 IP, 10 H, 4 HR, 2 BB, 3 K
at Kannapolis: 4-3, 3.80, 45 IP, 48 H, 2 HR, 7 BB, 30 K
The Sox have put Edwards on the fast track following Tommy John surgery, getting the call to Winston-Salem despite being the third- or fourth-most deserving Kannapolis pitcher. His fastball is in the high-80s, so he has some work to do in terms of missing bats.

Let’s see what he had to say about guys in the White Sox system:
Dexter Carter, RHP, White Sox
22 years old, 3-2, 3.35 with a 94/20 K/BB in 78 innings for Class A Kannapolis, 75 hits allowed. Love the K/IP ratio. Drafted in the 13th round out of Old Dominion last year, he has good stuff but had severe control problems in college. Has turned that around as a pro, much more effective against the wooden bat. K/IP makes this look like a good call so far.
Dan Hudson, RHP, White Sox
22 years old, has pitched at three levels already this year, promoted to Double-A late last week. Is a combined 6-5, 2.43 with an 87/17 K/BB in 74 innings, just 49 hits allowed. Excellent component ratios, which he had last year in college also despite a disappointing season overall for Old Dominion. Keep a really close eye on this one.
