Player Outlook
Xavier Edwards made his MLB debut in May but didn't receive notable playing time until he was recalled by Miami in September. In total he accrued just 84 plate appearances but showcased his contact and speed potential with a .295 average, 16.7 percent strikeout rate and five steals. He delivered an impressive campaign at Triple-A Jacksonville with seven homers, 32 steals and a .349/.427/.454 slash line, which was a marked improvement on his Double-A performance in 2022. The 24-year-old isn't likely to have a starting job Opening Day in 2024, but he should be able to make the roster out of spring training. Edwards offers fantasy managers speed and a potentially high average, but he'll need to have a regular role in order to be a feasible option.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Two pilfers in Sunday's win

    Edwards went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run scored, an RBI and two stolen bases in Sunday's win over the Reds. The 24-year-old switch hitter, acquired from the Rays in Nov. 2022, appears to be solidifying his spot as the Marlins' shortstop of both the present and the future. Edwards has multiple hits in six of the last eight games, batting .448 (13-for-29) over that stretch with two doubles, two RBI, three steals, four runs and a 4:3 BB:K. Manager Skip Schumaker has mainly had Edwards hitting fifth or lower since his promotion at the beginning of the month, but his skill set would seem very well suited for the top of the batting order.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Steals first bag of season

    Edwards went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's loss to the Astros. Batting sixth with right-hander Jake Bloss on the mound for Houston, Edwards' speed was on full display -- he advanced on two wild pitches in the second inning before coming home with Miami's second run, and he then singled and stole his first bag of 2024 in the sixth. Edwards had 37 steals in 41 attempts between Triple-A and the majors last year, so if he keeps getting on base, his wheels could translate into consistent fantasy value. The 24-year-old infielder has hit safely in 10 of the last 11 games, slashing .333/.395/.410 over that stretch, and he seems likely to remain the Marlins' starting shortstop even when Otto Lopez (back) has returned from the IL.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Taking hold of regular role

    Edwards will start at shortstop and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the White Sox. Since being called up from Triple-A Jacksonville on Tuesday, Edwards has picked up six straight starts while stepping in as the club's new everyday shortstop in place of Tim Anderson, who was designated for assignment. Edwards has gone 6-for-19 with a double, two walks, three runs and one RBI over his first five starts, and so long as he can keep turning in productive at-bats, he should have a stranglehold on a regular role. The 24-year-old hasn't made an impact on the basepaths yet, but he stole five bags in 119 plate appearances at Triple-A earlier this season and recorded 37 steals between 123 games with Jacksonville and the Marlins in 2023.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Marlins recalled Edwards from Triple-A Jacksonville on Tuesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Edwards is taking the roster spot vacated by Tim Anderson, who has been designated for assignment. The switch-hitting Edwards could also get a shot at shortstop in Anderson's place, although he will have to contend with Vidal Brujan there for playing time. Edwards is a potential stolen-base contributor in fantasy should he receive regular reps, although it's a question as to whether he'll ultimately hit enough to be able to take advantage of that speed.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Demoted to Triple-A

    The Marlins optioned Edwards to Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday. With Tim Anderson (personal) returning from the bereavement list and Otto Lopez (personal) coming off the paternity list, the Marlins will send Edwards and Tristan Gray back to Triple-A after both were up with the big club for the weekend. Edwards, who has missed most of the season while recovering from a bacterial infection of his left foot, appeared in three games against Cleveland over the weekend and went 2-for-9 with a double, two walks and one run.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Recalled, batting leadoff Friday

    The Marlins recalled Edwards from Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday. Miami is in need of infield help with both Tim Anderson (bereavement) and Otto Lopez (paternity) away from the club for a few days. Edwards is starting at shortstop and batting leadoff in Friday's game against the Guardians. The 24-year-old got a late start to the season due to a bacterial infection in his left foot, but he's slashed .365/.411/.481 with three stolen bases in 17 games with Jacksonville. He's not guaranteed regular playing time, but if he gets it Edwards could merit some attention in deeper fantasy leagues due to his stolen base potential.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Poised for rehab assignment

    Edwards (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Jacksonville on Saturday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Edwards' recovery from a bacterial infection in his left foot has gone very slowly, but he's finally ready to play in some games. It will be his first game action since early March, so he will need time in the minors to knock the rust off before the Marlins consider adding him to the big-league roster.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Marlins transferred Edwards (foot) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Tuesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Edwards' move to the 60-day IL will make him ineligible to return until May 27, though it remains unclear whether or not he'll be able to play by then. The 24-year-old has been slowly working his way back from a bacterial infection in his left foot that has kept him on the shelf since the beginning of the season.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Still on mend from foot infection

    Edwards (foot) is healing up after a recent follow-up appointment with a podiatrist, but he remains without a clear timeline to resume baseball activities, MLB.com reports. Edwards didn't appear in any Grapefruit League games after March 5, but he resumed hitting and throwing at the Marlins' spring training complex in late March before he was later revealed to be dealing with a foot infection. He's been shut down from activities ever since, but after his recent appointment was apparently positive, he could be cleared to start working out again soon. Edwards likely won't be ready to return from the 10-day injured list for at least another couple of weeks.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Moves to injured list

    The Marlins placed Edwards on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left foot infection.

According to MLB.com, Edwards was able to hit on the back fields of camp at the tail end of spring training, so he could be ready to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment soon.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Managing foot issue

    Edwards isn't in either lineup for Miami's split-squad games Sunday and was seen wearing a boot on his left foot, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Manager Skip Schumaker said Edwards is dealing with some inflammation but could be back in the lineup "in the next couple of days." The 24-year-old hasn't seen game action since March 5, and every day he's unavailable hurts his chances of cracking the Marlins' Opening Day roster.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Tough battle for roster spot

    Edwards might get squeezed off the Marlins' big-league roster to begin the season, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. The 24-year-old showed off his speed in his major-league debut last season, slashing .295/.329/.333 over 84 plate appearances and going 5-for-5 on steal attempts. Unfortunately for Edwards, the Marlins have Nick Gordon and Vidal Brujan in camp competing for a utility role as well, and while all three players have similar skill sets, the latter two are out of minor-league options. Unless Edwards significantly outplays one of them this spring, he may have to begin 2024 back at Triple-A Jacksonville.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Swipes two bags

    Edwards went 3-for-4 with two steals in Sunday's victory over Milwaukee.

The rookie has struggled to see playing time of late, as he's started only twice over the last eight games. Edwards is slashing .303/.333/.348 with three steals, 11 runs and three RBI over 71 big-league appearances.

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Receives call-up

  • Marlins' Xavier Edwards: Sent to Marlins

    Edwards and JT Chargois were acquired by the Marlins from the Rays on Tuesday in exchange for Marcus Johnson and Santiago Suarez. Edwards was one of Tampa Bay's top prospects but will be flipped in order to acquire a couple minor-league pitchers. He spent 2022 at the Triple-A level and had a .246/.328/.350 slash line with five home runs, 33 RBI and seven stolen bases in 93 games, so a change of scenery certainly won't hurt.

  • Rays' Xavier Edwards: Nearing return

    Edwards (shoulder) has been working out at the team's spring training facility and is nearing a return to game action, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

It's not clear exactly what activity Edwards has been engaged in while missing game action, but it appears that a return in late April remains realistic.
