White Sox released RHP Ryan Webb.
The 30-year-old hurler appeared in 18 games for the Rays this season, posting a 5.19 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 11/3 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings. It's unclear if he'll look to latch on elsewhere this year, or will try to secure a minor league deal heading into the 2017 season. He remains irrelevant for fantasy purposes. Sep 11 - 6:39 PM

White Sox signed RHP Ryan Webb to a minor league contract.

Webb was released by the Rays earlier this week after posting a 5.19 ERA in 17 1/3 innings. He had a career 3.35 ERA coming into the season and is worth a shot on a minor league deal.
Jul 8 - 5:36 PM

Rays released RHP Ryan Webb.

Webb was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay on June 27 and passed through waivers unclaimed. The righty had a 5.19 ERA in 17 1/3 innings this season with the Rays.
Jul 6 - 3:46 PM

Rays designated RHP Ryan Webb for assignment.

Webb gave up five hits and four runs in only one inning of work Saturday in his return from the disabled list. The 30-year-old will likely head to Triple-A Durham if he clears waivers. Danny Farquhar was called up to take Webb's spot on the active roster.
Jun 27 - 3:45 PM

Rays activated RHP Ryan Webb from the 15-day disabled list.

Tyler Sturdevant was optioned to Triple-A Durham in the corresponding move. Webb needed about a month to recover from a strained pectoral muscle. He was only so-so during his four-game rehab stint, recording a 7.36 ERA over four outings for High-A Charlotte and Triple-A Durham. The right-hander will be used in middle relief.
Jun 25 - 11:32 PM

Ryan Webb (pectoral) struck out two batters over a scoreless inning Monday in his latest rehab appearance with Triple-A Durham.

Webb, out since May 26 with a right pectoral strain, has allowed two runs on four hits and one walk in 2 2/3 innings over three appearances in Triple-A. It's not clear what the next step will be, but he's getting close to being activated.
Jun 21 - 9:37 AM

Ryan Webb (pectoral) is expected to make at least one more rehab appearance before being activated.

Webb has made two rehab appearances to this point as he works his way back from a pectoral strain. It seems likely that he'll be activated later this week if all goes well.
Jun 19 - 10:15 AM

Rays placed RHP Ryan Webb on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 27, with a right pectoral strain.

The 30-year-old right-hander isn't expected to be out long, and could return after a minimum stint on the disabled list. In 17 outings before hitting the shelf, he posted a 3.31 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings.
May 29 - 4:23 PM

Ryan Webb (hamstring) was held back again Monday.

But the hope is that he will feel healthy enough to pitch in a Grapefruit League game on Thursday. Webb has been slowed since the weekend by left hamstring tightness, but he shouldn't fall too far behind the other relievers in Rays camp. The right-hander signed a one-year, $1 million contract with Tampa Bay this offseason after posting a cool 3.20 ERA in 50 2/3 innings of relief last year for the Indians.
Feb 29 - 1:03 PM

Ryan Webb was scratched from a scheduled bullpen session on Sunday due to tightness in his left hamstring.

The injury is believed to be minor, the team is simply taking precautionary measures in the early days of spring camp. He'll throw a bullpen session on Monday and see how he's feeling.
Feb 28 - 4:59 PM

Rays signed RHP Ryan Webb to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Webb is a nice late-offseason addition to the Rays' bullpen mix at a very good value. The 30-year-old right-hander owns a 3.35 career major league ERA, and he had a 3.20 ERA in 50 2/3 innings last season with the Indians. He's a solid, groundball-inducing middle relief option.
Feb 18 - 11:39 AM

The Rays are close to signing free agent right-hander Ryan Webb, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

The Rays have been talking to Webb for almost a month and now it appears the two sides are finally closing in on a deal. If Webb signs a major league deal, the Rays will have to make room for him on their 40-man roster. Webb has made 357 relief appearances for four different teams since making his debut with the Padres in 2009.
Feb 17 - 1:23 PM

The Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports that the Rays have been in contact with free agent right-hander Ryan Webb.

Webb pitched for the Indians in 2015 and did a nice job over the course of 50 2/3 innings, pitching to a 3.20 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 31/12 K/BB ratio. While he's averaged just 6.2 K/9 over the course of his seven years in the bigs, the right-hander holds a career 3.35 ERA and should make for a dependable--if unspectacular--bullpen arm for whatever team signs him. He'll turn 30 in early February.
Jan 20 - 9:06 PM

Indians purchased the contract of RHP Ryan Webb from Triple-A Columbus.

The Indians needed another fresh bullpen arm after being battered around in recent days. Webb allowed one run over eight relief innings at Columbus to earn the promotion.

Indians signed RHP Ryan Webb to a minor league contract.

It's been quite a week for Webb, as he was designated for assignment by the Orioles, traded to the Dodgers, released by the Dodgers without throwing a pitch and now lands in Cleveland on a minor league deal. It's understandable that teams weren't willing to pay him his $2.75 million price tag (the Dodgers will eat that contract), but now that Webb is playing for the minimum he could be a solid pickup by the Tribe. He'll report to Triple-A Columbus for now but should be added to the Indians' bullpen before long.
