Webb (shoulder) will begin a throwing program Tuesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Webb has been out for just over two weeks due to a strained right shoulder. It's not clear exactly when he's expected to return, and the Giants may want to be extra careful of him, as he'd also missed time earlier in May due to the issue before returning to make a single start and then heading back to the injured list.
Webb was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder strain Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Webb dealt with a shoulder strain at the end of May, but he was reinstated from the injured list Saturday and earned the win over the Dodgers. However, the right-hander apparently hasn't moved past the injury and will be shut down once again after he felt shoulder soreness in a recent bullpen session, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. To prevent another issue, manager Gabe Kapler said that the right-hander won't throw for several weeks, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Right-hander Nick Tropeano was recalled as part of a corresponding move, while Scott Kazmir (personal) or Conner Menez could be candidates to take Webb's place in the rotation.
Webb (4-3) allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit while striking out seven across five innings to earn the win over the Dodgers on Saturday. The only hit against Webb was a Justin Turner double that scored Gavin Lux in the first inning. In Webb's last three starts, he is 3-0 with a 1.06 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 17 innings. For the season, the 24-year-old has a 3.86 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 9.9 K/9 in 49 innings. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Friday against the Cubs.
Webb (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Saturday's start against the Dodgers, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports. Webb only missed one turn through the rotation due to a mild right shoulder strain. The right-hander used all of his pitches in a 35-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and didn't require a rehab assignment before returning. It's not clear whether Webb will be on a pitch count Saturday, but Scott Kazmir could serve in a piggyback role if Webb isn't fully built up. Jason Vosler and Nick Tropeano were optioned to Triple-A Sacramento as part of Saturday's roster shuffle.
Manager Gabe Kapler announced that Webb (shoulder) would be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Saturday's game against the Dodgers in Los Angeles, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Webb will only end up missing one start due to the mild right shoulder strain that resulted in him being placed on the IL on May 17. Rather than sending Webb out on a minor-league rehab assignment before activating him, the Giants were satisfied enough with the right-hander's health after he used all his offerings in a 35-pitch bullpen session Wednesday. The Giants could still choose to bring Webb back with a more limited workload than usual, with Scott Kazmir potentially piggybacking him for two or three innings out of the bullpen.
