Rockies Interested In Brandon Webb

Let's add the Rockies to the ever-growing number of teams interested in free agent right-hander Brandon Webb. Troy Renck of The Denver Post tweets that Colorado has expressed interest in the sinkerballer, who would be a nice fit in Coors Field if healthy.

The Cubs, Pirates, Twins, Rangers, and Nationals are already in on Webb, who is a big unknown at this point. He hasn't been on a big league mound in close to 21 months because of shoulder problems.  Two weeks ago, Webb's agent Jonathan Maurer gave MLBTR his take on Webb's September/October instructional games.  Maurer said Webb is expected to prepare at a normal pace and is ready to make 30-plus starts in 2011.
