Webb feels good despite rehab-outing results

ARLINGTON -- Brandon Webb had an ugly rehab outing Sunday for the Frisco RoughRiders, lasting only two-thirds of an innings while giving up four earned runs.

Despite the unsightly line score, Webb insists that his 36-pitch outing was not a case of getting shelled.

"I feel pretty good," Webb said. "I didn't think there was a hard-hit ball. There were four of them that were ground balls in the hole, one little blooper. Nothing was at them. I don't know that I made my best pitches, but nothing was hit at anybody."

Webb struck out one and walked one. His Double-A ERA now sits at 11.57.

  • 131 wins
  • 121 wins

"I don't think it is a step back in the way I felt or anything like that," Webb said. "I had pretty good stuff. I didn't really get the work in that I really needed."

Webb said he touched 87 mph in the first inning, but felt even better in the bullpen after the game.

"In the 'pen when I finished up were probably the best pitches I've thrown," Webb said. "I feel like the velocity was coming around. From what they said, I was at 85 or 87 in the first, and it usually gets better as the game goes on."
