Webb will be available out of the bullpen for the Giants' final two games of the regular season, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Webb earned a win in his start Wednesday and won't be one of the team's two starters for the final pair of games in the regular season. However, the right-hander will be available in relief as the Giants battle for a spot in the playoffs. Should the team qualify for the postseason, he could remain in a bullpen role for the best-of-three Wild Card Series.
Webb (3-4) picked up the win against the Rockies on Wednesday, allowing two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out one batter across 5.1 innings.
The 23-year-old worked around a leadoff double allowed by Caleb Baragar in the second inning, finishing out the frame without any damage. His only blemishes on the night came from an RBI single he yielded to Trevor Story in the third and an RBI double he allowed to Raimel Tapia in the fifth. Otherwise, Webb was effective while working up to 84 pitches. The right-hander finishes out the regular season with a 5.50 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 13 appearances (11 starts).
Webb (2-4) allowed six runs on six hits and two walks while striking out one batter over 3.1 innings in a loss to the A's on Friday.
The righty threw only 48 of 90 pitches for strikes and also plunked a batter. When he did put the ball in the zone, Webb was squared up, with the big blow being a three-run homer off the bat of Matt Olson in the third inning. Webb has shown flashes this season, but with a 5.73 ERA and 1.52 WHIP, he clearly still has a ways to go. He lines up to face the Rockies at home during the final week of the regular season.
Webb allowed a run on four hits and a walk and struck out five over four innings in a no-decision in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Padres.
A Wil Myers solo shot in the second inning accounted for the lone run against Webb, who was covering for Kevin Gausman (elbow). Sunday was the first time Webb had allowed fewer than four runs in his last four starts. The 23-year-old has a 4.96 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 44 strikeouts through 45.1 innings this season. His next start is expected to be next weekend versus the Athletics.
Webb is slated to start the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Padres, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
After the first two games of the series in San Diego were canceled, Webb looked like he wouldn't get the chance to pitch again until next week. However, he'll be back in the rotation on short notice Sunday, as Kevin Gausman won't be available to pitch the second game after being diagnosed with right elbow tightness. Since working a career-high seven frames in an Aug. 21 win over the Diamondbacks, Webb has posted a 9.00 ERA and 1.71 WHIP in 14 innings across three subsequent starts.
Webb didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's contest between the Mariners and the Giants. He allowed five runs on six hits and three walks while fanning four across five innings.
Webb has posted back-to-back no-decisions, but he has allowed at least four runs without pitching six full innings in each of his last three starts. The right-hander has a 5.23 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP in 41.1 innings across nine starts this season, posting similar numbers to the ones he delivered in eight outings during the 2019 season.
Webb will draw the start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Webb will remain on normal rest for the start, though it was unclear how the rotation would line up given the imminent of return of Drew Smyly (finger). Webb has maintained a 4.71 ERA and a 35:15 K:BB across 36.1 innings this season.
Webb gave up four runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings during Wednesday's 9-6 loss at Colorado. He had five strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
The offense staked him a four-run lead during the first inning, but the Rockies tallied two runs during the sixth inning to tied the score at 4-4 and end his afternoon. Webb has a 4.71 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 35:15 K:BB over 36.1 innings and lines up to face the Mariners on Tuesday.
Webb (2-3) took the loss in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, allowing five runs on four hits and two walks across 3.2 innings pitched. He struck out four.
Webb was coming off a strong outing in which he allowed just two runs in seven innings against the Diamondbacks, but he couldn't build on the performance when he faced the Dodgers on Thursday. The right-hander allowed a run in the first inning before temporarily settling in for scoreless frames in the second and third. However, a walk and three hits led to three more runs for Los Angeles in the fourth. Webb will look to bounce back as he takes a 4.35 ERA into his start against the Rockies on Wednesday.
Webb is starting Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.
Webb will start the first half of Thursday's twin bill, with Kevin Gausman set to start Game 2. The right-hander impressed his last time out, striking out eight batters while allowing two runs on five hits across seven innings.
Webb (2-2) earned the win Friday against the Diamondbacks after tossing seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits and striking out eight.
Webb posted a season-high mark for strikeouts and managed to bounce back after a shaky outing in his previous start, when he walked five in just 4.1 innings. Webb has a 8.6 K/9 this season but is also issuing 3.6 BB/9, so he should post even better numbers if he finds a way to limit the walks. He seems to be trending in the right direction, walking one or fewer in three of his last four starts.
Webb (1-2) allowed three runs on three hits and five walks over 4.1 innings Sunday, striking out five and taking the loss against Oakland.
Webb threw just 50-of-88 pitches for strikes Sunday as his control was never really there. Fortunately for him, he was lifted from the game before Oakland's offense caught fire with a nine-run fifth inning. The right-handed rookie will carry a 3.54 ERA into Friday's home matchup with Arizona.
Webb (1-1) took the loss Monday versus the Astros, allowing five runs (two earned) on four hits and a walk while striking out three in 3.1 innings.
The Giants committed three errors Monday, two of which came in the third inning during a four-run rally by the Astros. Webb can't be blamed for all the struggles, but he still needed 81 pitches to record 10 outs. The 23-year-old right-hander has a 2.81 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 13:6 K:BB in 16 innings this season. He's projected to start Sunday at home versus the Athletics.
Webb will start the Giants' series opener in Houston on Monday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
After Jeff Samardzija (shoulder) and Drew Smyly (finger) moved to the injured list last week, Webb gained some added security in the rotation now that the Giants' starting pitching depth is being tested. The right-hander has posted a 2.13 ERA through his first three outings, but his lackluster peripherals (8.9 K-BB%, 4.08 FIP) suggests some regression could be headed his way. He'll at least have the opportunity to provide fantasy managers in weekly leagues with more value than usual, as Webb tentatively lines up for two starts this week. After Monday's outing, Webb will be on tap for a home start against the Athletics on Saturday or Sunday.
Webb (1-0) was charged with two runs (one earned) on four hits over five innings in a win over the Rockies on Wednesday. He struck out four and did not issue a walk.
Tip of the cap to Webb, who went five innings in Coors Field without allowing an extra-base hit. He mostly struggled in his eight starts for the Giants last year, posting a 5.22 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over 39.2 innings, and has not reached even 80 pitches in a start this season (only 68 pitches Wednesday). Clearly manager Gabe Kapler wants to limit Webb's exposure to opposing lineups, and with that, it will be difficult for Webb to earn wins consistently. The right-hander lines up for a couple tough matchups next week (at HOU, vs. OAK).
Webb allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks over 3.2 innings while striking out four in a no-decision versus the Rangers on Friday.
Webb was again generous with baserunners in his second start of the year, but mostly avoided any significant damage. He needed 79 pitches (44 strikes) to complete his short outing, and the Giants were able to take him off the hook for the loss with a three-run fifth inning. Webb has a 2.35 ERA and 1.96 WHIP with six strikeouts in 7.2 innings so far. He's expected to face the Rockies on the road Wednesday.
Webb will start Friday against the Rangers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Webb limited the Dodgers to just a single run over four innings in his season debut. He threw just 70 pitches in that one, so he's unlikely to get close to 100 pitches this time around, but he should still be able to pitch fairly deep into the game.
Webb allowed one run on six hits and a walk while striking out two in four innings in a no-decision versus the Dodgers on Saturday.
Webb needed 70 pitches (40 strikes) to get through his four innings, allowing just an RBI double to Justin Turner on the scoreboard. The 23-year-old Webb posted a 5.22 ERA in 39.2 innings last year. The right-hander is expected to face the Padres on Thursday for his next appearance, but it's unclear if he'll serve as a traditional starter or a primary pitcher in any of his outings in 2020.
Webb will start in Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
The Giants have had difficulty silencing the Dodgers' bats over the first two games of the season, and Webb will take the mound Saturday to see if he can get any results. The right-hander posted a 5.22 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over eight starts with the Giants last season.
Webb is the leading candidate to be the Giants' de facto fifth starter, although the team is using the term "bulk-innings role," Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR.com reports. "We see him in a role for us to take multiple innings," manager Gabe Kapler said. "We'll try to build him up as much as possible to be able to lengthen him out. ... We're stressing to all our pitchers, not just Logan, the mindset of being flexible and getting built up as much as possible."
Buster Posey, who caught Webb's live batting practice session over the weekend, said the righty's stuff was "electric" and that he was "a tick or two up from the spring." Webb has improved his arsenal and will no longer face an innings limit in a shortened season. However, manager Gabe Kapler was hesitant to use the word "starter" as the Giants stress flexible roles for their pitchers and don't expect any starter to go beyond four innings to start the season. Trevor Cahill, Tyler Anderson and Andrew Suarez are also competing for bulk innings behind the Giants' top four starters.
