Brandon Webb Rumors: Monday

Given the guarantees required to sign Cliff Lee or Carl Pavano, Brandon Webb must appeal to many teams even after missing almost all of the last two seasons.  The latest on the sinkerballer:

  • The Cubs, Nationals, and Rangers remain in the mix for Webb, tweets ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. The righty's surgeon issued a positive report for 2011, according to Crasnick (Twitter link).  The Mets appear to think Webb is too risky, tweets SI's Jon Heyman
  • The Pirates' pursuit of Webb appears to have gone cold, writes Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  Kovacevic says the Bucs have not been in touch with him since November 22nd.
