In a relatively surprising development out of Chicago, the Cubs will option Carl Edwards Jr. to Triple-A Iowa, per Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun Times (via Twitter). Mike Montgomery, meanwhile, has been put on the injured list, per ESPN’s Jesse Rogers (via Twitter), who also announced the Edwards Jr. move on ESPN 1000 this morning. The Cubs have not yet announced the moves.
Allen Webster is likely to take Edwards’ roster spot, per The Athletic’s Sahadev Sharma (via Twitter). No official word has come down from Cubs camp as of yet.
