Webb signed a minor league deal with the Brewers on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training. He has a career 3.43 ERA, but has just 271 strikeouts in 393.1 innings, and his ERA and strikeout rate both took steps back in 2016. Look for him to compete for a low-leverage role with the Brewers.
Webb cleared waivers and was released by the Rays on Wednesday, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports. He posted a 5.19 ERA in 17.1 innings out of the Rays' bullpen prior to being DFA'd in late June. Considering he cleared waivers, Webb will be seeking a minor league deal with a team looking for organizational bullpen depth.
Webb was designated for assignment Monday. Webb was just activated from the DL over the weekend, and he'll now be removed from the 40-man roster. The right-hander will be subject to waivers, and if he passes through unclaimed will likely land at Triple-A. Tampa Bay recalled right-hander Danny Farquhar to take Webb's spot on the roster.
Webb (pectoral) has been activated from the disabled list. Webb made four rehab outings before being activated Saturday. He's managed to avoid too much trouble out Tampa Bay's bullpen, despite posting a 1.531 WHIP.
Webb (pectoral) could be activated "in the next few days" after a successful rehab appearance Monday for Triple-A Durham, the Tampa Bay Times reports. The 30-year-old fired a clean inning while striking out two, setting the stage for a possible return to the big league club later in the week. Webb's Monday outing was the best of the three he's had during the rehab process, as he'd given up an earned run in each of the first two trips to the mound for the Bulls. He's generated a solid 3.31 ERA over 16.1 innings for the Rays this season, with no holds or saves to his credit.
