Tito would seem to be a large admirer. From Paul Hoynes:
At the end of last 12 months, when Francona talked about potential adjustments in the bullpen, he talked about Jon Edwards, a September simply call-up from Course AAA Columbus. Edwards designed nine appearances, putting out 10 with four walks in 8 2/3 innings.
Edwards’ September arrival and departure did not seem to be all that significant. Francona, nonetheless, named him a “sleeper” about the 2019 time.
On Sunday, he was requested about the 6-5, 235-pound Edwards once again.
“I will be surprised if he doesn’t do really perfectly,” mentioned Francona. “You never want to proclaim too much. But I consider in my initial 12 months in this article I mentioned Corey Kluber is situated to have a really superior 12 months. Properly, you know what, he was.
“I consider Jon Edwards, from where he’s been, the way he works, the way he acts, the way he conducts himself, I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t do really perfectly.”
A rapid look at his MLB participant webpage shows his nickname as Brotein Shake. Which is ummmmm intriguing.
