Webster (arm) was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Monday. Webster threw 11 innings for the Cubs early in the season, allowing six earned runs, before going down with a nerve issue in his right arm in mid-May. He never returned to the big leagues, though he did pitch six rehab innings over the final three months of the season, which would seem to bode well for his availability heading into the 2020 campaign.
Webster (arm) restarted his rehab assignment at Double-A Tennessee last week, making two appearances for the affiliate and giving up four runs on three hits and a walk over 1.2 innings. Webster has been stuck on the Cubs' injured list since May with the arm injury, but began a minor-league rehab assignment in early July before being shut down approximately two weeks later following a setback. The right-hander resumed pitching a month later, but he may have suffered another setback while pitching for Tennessee, as his last appearance came Aug. 19. He'll probably need to return to minor-league action within the next few days to have a realistic shot at rejoining the Cubs as a September callup.
Webster (arm) will continue his rehab assignment at Double-A Tennessee, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. Webster made two appearances with the Cubs' rookie-league affiliate over the last week but now makes his way to Double-A. The 29-year-old landed on the injured list in early May with radial nerve inflammation in his right arm and will be eligible to be activated off the 60-day injured list after the All-Star break.
Webster (arm) began a rehab assignment with the Cubs' rookie-league affiliate Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. Webster has been on the injured list since mid-May due to radial nerve inflammation. He's since moved to the 60-day injured list, though his eligibility will likely expire before he's ready to return to game action.
Webster (arm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday. Webster recorded a 4.91 ERA in 11 innings before going down with radial nerve inflammation in mid-May. The injury is evidently severe enough for him to miss at least two months, pushing his return to mid-July at the earliest. He'll make way on the 40-man roster for Craig Kimbrel, who officially joined the Cubs on Friday.
