The Rays have designated right-hander Ryan Webb for assignment, according to Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times (Twitter link). His roster spot will go to previously designated Danny Farquhar, who will return to the big league club after having been sent outright to Triple-A.
Webb, 30, inked a one-year deal that guaranteed him a million dollars this offseason with the Rays. He totaled 17 1/3 innings out of the Tampa Bay bullpen and posted an uninspiring 5.19 ERA, though with 11 walks against just a pair of unintentional walks and an above-average 48.4 percent ground-ball rate, there’s plenty of reason to believe that Webb can right the ship and contribute later this season, be it with the Rays or another organization. Webb entered the 2016 season with a lifetime 3.35 ERA, 6.2 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 376 innings at the Major League level.
Off topic, I know, but Giolito is starting for the Nats tomorrow
This guy have an attitude or something? Pitching estimators seem to indicate hes a capable pitcher but never seems to stick around anywhere…..
I knew the guy in middle school through high school and he was always arrogant and had that better than everyone else attitude so it wouldn’t surprise me if his attitudes has gotten in the way of his career
What proof do u have of being in his class bc If not you are ruining his reputation
Yes, my one comment is ruining his reputation……went to Carwise middle with the guy and played against him in Palm Harbor rec league
Didn’t know he was from Pinellas.
I think it’s mostly just the stuff; he’s not a high-velocity guy, just a sinker/slider type. There’s a lot of guys like him bouncing around the minors, so it makes sense that he’s the first to go when there’s a roster crunch.
Stfu eggy and quit riding his D
Its the Internet , be whatever you wanna be…
