Hunter, Webb make encouraging rehab starts

Tommy Hunter and Brandon Webb both made rehabilitation starts for Rangers Minor League clubs on Tuesday, and both saw a degree of success.

Webb started for Double-A Frisco, and bounced back from a dreadful outing on May 30 by going three scoreless innings, giving up one hit and a walk while throwing 42 pitches.

Webb was able to get up to 87 mph, but most fastballs sat between 83 and 85.

After his outing was over, Webb threw 35 more pitches in the bullpen.

Hunter went 3 2/3 innings for Triple-A Round Rock, giving up six hits and one walk along with two runs (one earned).

Hunter threw 74 pitches before leaving with a runner on first base and two outs in the fourth.
