Webb struck out one and retired the only two batters he faced to record his first save in a 3-1 win over the Padres on Monday.
After picking up his first win in his last appearance, Webb recorded the first save of his major-league career. The right-hander breezed through 0.2 innings, forcing a groundout and a strikeout to end the game. Luke Jackson and A.J. Minter were unavailable, but Webb could have a chance to earn more opportunities if he keeps producing. The right-hander hasn't allowed a run through six appearances this season.
Webb was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
Webb was one of Gwinnett's top relievers last season with a 3.13 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 34:11 K:BB over 31.2 innings, and turned that into an early-season promotion in 2019. The 25-year-old will look to make his major-league debut with the Braves, likely in a low-leverage spot.
Webb wasn't likely to pitch over the next couple days after sustaining a hand contusion over the weekend, but the injury never really affected his chances of breaking camp with the big club. The right-hander's lack of prior big-league experience always made it likely that he'll open the season in the minors, though his place on the 40-man roster gives him a decent shot at surfacing in Atlanta at some point in 2019. Webb was one of Gwinnett's top relievers upon receiving a promotion from Double-A Mississippi last season, as he turned in a 3.13 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 34:11 K:BB In 31.2 innings.
Webb is day-to-day with a bruised hand, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Webb was struck by a line drive Sunday against the Marlins and appeared to be in significant pain. Luckily for him, he seems to have avoided a fracture, so his absence is unlikely to be a particularly long one.
Webb exited Sunday's spring game against the Marlins after being his by a liner in the left forearm area, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.
Webb appeared to be in significant pain as he left the field. The right-hander should be considered day-to-day until more is known on the injury.
