The Cubs today placed outfielder Dexter Fowler on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to June 19) and recalled right-handed pitcher Carl Edwards Jr. from Triple-A Iowa.

Edwards, who will wear uniform No. 6, will be available for the Cubs tonight when they open their three-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field.

The 24-year-old Edwards joins the Cubs for the second time this season, as he served as the club’s 26th man for a doubleheader on May 11 vs. San Diego (he did not appear in a game). Edwards made his major-league debut for the Cubs last season, posting no record with a 3.86 ERA (2 ER/4.2 IP) in five relief appearances. He is 1-1 with one save and a 4.26 ERA (12 ER/25.1 IP) in 24 relief appearances with Iowa this season, limiting opponents to a .185 batting average while striking out 35 batters in 25.1 innings, an average of 12.4 strikeouts per nine innings.

Edwards began the 2015 campaign with Tennessee and turned in a 2.66 ERA (7 ER/23.2 IP) in 13 relief appearances to earn his first promotion to Triple-A in late May. He was named to the U.S. Team in the 2015 Futures Game (0.2 scoreless innings pitched) before capping his Triple-A campaign with a 3-1 record, two saves and a 2.84 ERA (10 ER/31.2 IP) in 23 relief outings.

The right-hander joined the Cubs with right-handed pitchers Justin Grimm and Neil Ramirez and infielder Mike Olt in the trade that sent pitcher Matt Garza to Texas in 2013. Edwards is 20-11 with seven saves and a 2.21 ERA (78 ER/317.2 IP) in 110 career appearances, 49 as a starter, in five pro seasons. He has struck out 404 batters in 317.2 innings pitched, nearly 11.5 strikeouts per nine innings.

Fowler, 30, is batting .290 (69 for 238) with 19 doubles, three triples, seven home runs and 28 RBI in 64 games for the Cubs this season.
