Webb has signed a minor-league deal with the Giants and will report to Triple-A Sacramento, Steve Adams of MLB Trade Rumors reports.
The 31-year-old was released by the Brewers last week after making just three appearances in spring training. Webb spent most of last season in the Rays' organization, where he posted a 5.19 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP over 18 relief appearances. He'll likely be limited to serving as organizational depth before having another shot at the majors.
Webb was released Wednesday by the Brewers.
Webb was only able to make three appearances with the Brewers in Cactus League play, which didn't provide adequate opportunity for him to seriously contend for a bullpen spot. The journeyman middle reliever has been steady, if unspectacular, in a setup role for much of his career, but after turning in a 5.19 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 18 appearances with the Rays last season, Webb will likely have to settle for a minor-league contract first before getting another opportunity in the big leagues.
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 was signed by the White Sox on Friday, and assigned to Triple-A Charlotte, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.
Webb was recently released by the Rays on Wednesday, having posted a 5.19 ERA during 17.1 innings of work with the club this season. The 30-year-old has spent some time in the Rays' minor league system in 2016 also, allowing three earned runs in 3.2 innings of work between Triple-A Durham and High-A Charlotte. He will likely be used as organizational depth for the White Sox, but could get a chance at the major league level again later this summer.
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) was activated from the disabled list Saturday after making four rehab appearances.
Webb has managed to avoid too much trouble out of Tampa Bay's bullpen despite posting a potentially dangerous 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.
Webb (pectoral) will make his second rehab appearance for Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The veteran reliever reported no setbacks after his first appearance, which came Wednesday night. Webb surrendered two hits and an earned run over 0.2 innings in that contest, with both outs coming on strikeouts. Assuming he emerges from Saturday's outing without further issues, the 30-year-old could re-join the major league club during next week's road trip.
Webb's pectoral injury, which has landed him on the disabled list, traces back to a May 26 outing versus the Marlins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The veteran reliever was on the hill for a second consecutive game on May 26 when he apparently suffered the injury, according to manager Kevin Cash. Webb was touched up for three hits and an earned run in less than inning in that outing, the first time he'd given up a run since May 3. With the soreness persisting for multiple days, the team opted to give the 30-year-old some time to heal. "He just hasn't quite kicked it," Cash said. "We don't think it's ... too big of a deal. We just want to be cautious."
Webb was placed on the DL on Sunday due to a right pectoral strain, freelance Rays writer Roger Mooney reports.
The 30-year-old hasn't appeared in the last three games, but the Rays provided no indication he was dealing with an injury. With Webb heading to the DL, Brad Boxberger (abdomen) will be activated Monday in a corresponding move.
Webb had what manager Kevin Cash termed "his best outing" in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The 30-year-old was needed for what was easily his longest stint of the season, due to starter Chris Archer's ouster from the game after only three innings. Webb responded with three innings of two-hit, shutout ball, and struck out a trio of Tigers in the process. It marked his sixth consecutive scoreless outing, and brought his shrinking ERA down to 3.00, a far cry from the 5.63 figure he owned after a May 3 appearance versus the Dodgers.
Webb surrendered only one hit in a scoreless eighth inning in Tuesday's 12-2 victory over the Blue Jays.
The 30-year-old reliever has now turned in four straight scoreless appearances since giving up five hits and three runs (two earned) over 1.2 innings over a pair of outings in late April and early May. He also escaped with just some residual swelling when a line drive struck off his glove, hitting him on the side of his jaw. Webb has been effective for the short stretches of work he's been tabbed for, pitching no more than 1.1 innings in any trip to the mound this season. He's in the midst of a solid stretch, having lowered his ERA almost two full runs to 3.75 over his last four appearances.
Webb surrendered two hits and an earned run in an inning of work in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Red Sox. He also struck out a batter.
The veteran righty gave up his first run since the opener versus the Blue Jays, but was sharp otherwise. Webb got 11 of his 16 offerings into the strike zone, and recorded a strikeout for the third time in his four appearances. With a plethora of arms in the Rays bullpen, Webb has seen eight and six days go by, respectively, between his last two trips to the mound, time frames which may contribute to some up-and-down performances if they become the norm. He's generated a 6.23 ERA over 4.1 innings of work so far in 2016.
Webb (hamstring) threw a perfect inning against the Yankees on Saturday.
Five pitches was all Webb needed to complete the frame, and he hasn't needed more than 11 pitches to complete any of his four innings this spring. Webb dealt with some hamstring tightness early in camp, but that's a distant memory now. He appears in line to fill one of the Rays' final bullpen spots.
Webb was held back during Monday's session due to a tight hamstring, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Webb has been battling the issue for a few days, but the team does not appear overly concerned that it's anything that could keep him out for an extended period of time. Manager Kevin Cash expressed Monday that he expects Webb to be ready to pitch in Thursday's spring training contest.
Webb has agreed to a one-year major league contract with the Rays.
Despite consistently posting sub-par strikeout numbers, Webb has made at least 40 relief appearances in each of the last six seasons, playing for four different teams over that span. He'll take his heavy ground-ball profile to Tampa Bay to serve as a middle reliever.
The Indians have announced the promotion of veteran right-hander Ryan Webb in an attempt to bolster their battered bullpen. Outfielder Jerry Sands has been designated for assignment to create a roster space.
"We just got to the point because of some early exits (by our starters) and some inconsistencies in our bullpen that we felt we needed another arm," manager Terry Francona said, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "We did not want to designate Jerry. He kind of grew on everybody. But the fact of the matter is we needed the arm and Swish (Nick Swisher) is on the horizon. I'm not talking about tomorrow, but sometime we need to look at the big picture when it comes to making decisions and we did. It was not a lot of fun telling Jerry that because he's such a good kid."
The 29-year-old journeyman pitcher has been impressive at Triple-A Columbus with one run and four hits allowed in 8 1/3 innings.
The latest disaster by the Indians bullpen was Tuesday night when it gave up eight runs from the sixth inning on to blow a 5-3 lead.
It didn't take long for pitcher Ryan Webb to find a new home.
Only a few hours following his release from the Dodgers, Webb signed a minor-league contract with the Indians, according to FOX Sports Ohio. He is being assigned to Triple-A Columbus.
The Dodgers acquired Webb from the Orioles a week ago. After outrighting him to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, the Dodgers decided to part ways with him on Monday. Webb has a career 3.38 ERA in his previous six MLB seasons.
The Dodgers have had second thoughts entirely about pitcher Ryan Webb .
Just a week after acquiring him from the Orioles, the Dodgers have released Webb, according to MLB.com. On Sunday, Webb was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City, only to be cut a day later.
Even though he's no longer with the team, the Dodgers will still have to pay Webb $2.75 million in salary. In six MLB seasons, Webb holds a career 3.83 ERA. He's yet to appear in a game in 2015.
