Webb Likely To Decide On Team Soon

Brandon Webb is likely to decide on his next team soon, according to Ed Price of AOL FanHouse. Multiple teams are in the running to sign the right-hander, who has drawn steady interest this offseason. The Rangers have expressed interest, the Cubs were focused on Webb at one point and, according to MLB.com's Bill Ladson, the Nationals maintain interest.

The Yankees, Reds and Brewers don't seem interested in Webb, who has missed almost all of the last two seasons with shoulder injuries. He underwent right shulder surgery in August of 2009 and spent most of this past season recovering from the operation.

Webb is drawing considerable interest after two lost seasons because he was one of the top pitchers in baseball from 2003-08. He didn't finish lower than second in the Cy Young Award voting from 2006-08, when he was selected to three consecutive All-Star teams. Webb, a ground ball pitcher, has posted 7.3 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 with a 3.27 ERA in his career.
