  • Allen Webster: Cut loose by Washington

    The Nationals released Webster on Monday, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.

    Webster, who appeared in 12 games out of the Cubs bullpen in 2019, joined Washington on a minor-league deal in late February and was expected to begin the season at Double-A Harrisburg. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic putting the 2020 minor-league season in jeopardy, the Nationals have decided to cut salary last week by releasing Webster and 39 other minor-league players. The 30-year-old is now free to join another organization either in MLB or abroad.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Outrighted to Triple-A

    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.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Resumes rehab assignment

    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.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Moves rehab to Double-A

    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.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Begins rehab assignment

    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.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Transferred to 60-day IL

    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.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Placed on injured list

    Webster was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with radial nerve inflammation in his right arm, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    It's not immediately clear how much time Webster will miss, but he will not pitch again until at least sometime late this month. Xavier Cedeno was activated from the injured list to take Webster's spot in the Cubs' bullpen.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Notches one-out save

    Webster retired the only batter he faced, earning his first save in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Diamondbacks.

    Webster got Nick Ahmed to fly out to end the 15th inning, needing just two pitches to record his first career save. He was the ninth pitcher used by the Cubs, and he won't be seeing many save opportunities down the road.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Called up to majors

    Webster was called up to the Cubs on Saturday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    Carl Edwards Jr. was sent down in a corresponding move after a ghastly 32.40 ERA in just 1.2 innings of work. Formerly a starting pitcher, Webster is expected to provide bullpen depth for the Cubs. The reliever has 123.1 innings of major-league experience across four seasons, most recently throwing three innings for the Cubs last year during his first stint in the big leagues since 2015, but he could find himself back in the minors if and when Edwards corrects his mechanics.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    Webster was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Webster inked a minor-league deal with the Cubs in December after being non-tendered following the 2018 season. The 29-year-old righty will likely begin the year with Triple-A Iowa and serve as organizational depth.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Signs with Cubs

    Webster signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    Webster has linked back up with the Cubs on a minor-league deal after being non-tendered following the 2018 campaign. He appeared in three games for Chicago, allowing two runs in three innings of work. He figures to serve as organizational pitching depth.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Cut loose by Cubs

    Webster wasn't tendered a contract by the Cubs, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Snags first win in regular-season finale

    Webster (1-0) retired two batters out of the bullpen and recorded the win in Sunday's 10-5 victory over the Cardinals.

    Webster picked a good time to pick up his first win of the season, as the victory propelled the Cubs to a one-game playoff with the Brewers for the NL Central crown on Monday. The 28-year-old provided bullpen depth for the Cubs down the stretch but likely won't factor into their playoff plans.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Contract purchased from minors

    Webster had his contract selected from Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Webster will provide additional bullpen depth over the final few weeks of the season after Brandon Morrow (biceps) was ruled out for the remainder of the season. The 28-year-old owns a career 6.13 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 76:66 K:BB across 120.1 innings over parts of three major-league seasons. He most recently pitched for the Diamondbacks in 2015.

  • Cubs' Allen Webster: Joins Cubs on minor-league deal

    Webster signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs on Friday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

    Webster lasted played in the majors in 2015. The 28-year-old owns a 6.13 ERA in 120.1 innings over parts of three seasons. His strikeout rate (13.9 percent) and walk rate (12.1 percent) are both poor. He spent the 2016 season in Korea and the 2017 season at Triple-A Round Rock with high ERAs at both stops (5.70 and 6.79, respectively). It's unlikely that he'll be anything more than minor-league filler for the Cubs.
