A sleeper prospect from the Rangers' system, right-hander Carl (CJ) Edwards was drafted as an afterthought in 2011's 48th round, but rose quickly enough through the ranks to gain the attention of the rebuilding regime in Chicago.

Edwards derives a quality mid-90's fastball (somehow) from his slight frame, complementing it with quality off-speed pitches. His plus curve has thus far infuriated lower-level pro batters. While it'll be awhile before he shows the stamina to get deep into ballgames, his ability to handle heavy workloads is really the only question mark here. He's one of the best under-hyped prospects in baseball.

Edwards, originally a 48th round draft pick, is 8-2 in Sally League play this season, with a 1.83 ERA, a 1.03 WHIP and an eye-popping 122 strikeouts in 93 innings of work.
