    Edwards (back) will remain with Triple-A Iowa on his rehab assignment after the All-Star break, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Impact

    Edwards began the rehab assignment last Monday and will stay at Triple-A for another outing or two to help him "sharpen" up. The 27-year-old appeared to find some consistency prior to suffering the back strain with 5.1 scoreless innings over his last six outings.

    News

    Edwards (back) will join Triple-A Iowa on Monday for a rehab assignment, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Impact

    Edwards threw bullpen sessions Wednesday and Saturday to clear the way for his rehab stint. The right-hander moved to the injured list in mid-June with a left thoracic strain and appeared to find his groove on the mound prior to the injury with one unearned run allowed over his last 7.2 innings.

    News

    Edwards (back) completed a bullpen session Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    According to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, Edwards checked out fine upon being re-evaluated Thursday and is slated to throw again Saturday. Edwards has been on the shelf since June 13 after being diagnosed with a left thoracic strain. If he can advance to facing hitters by early next week, he'll have a chance at making it back from the 10-day injured list before the All-Star break.
