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.

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.

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.

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.

Dodgers released RHP Ryan Webb.

So the Dodgers basically just paid $2.75 million (Webb's 2015 salary) in order to obtain a competitive balance pick (No. 74 overall) from the Orioles in last week's trade. Webb won't have any trouble finding another job quickly, as he boasts a career 3.37 ERA and is an extreme groundball pitcher.

Ryan Webb accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

There had been rumblings that perhaps Webb would not report to Triple-A and choose to look for another opportunity elsewhere. He'll serve as bullpen depth on the farm for the Dodgers. It's expected that he'll find his way to the big league club before long.

Dodgers sent RHP Ryan Webb outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The 29-year-old has yet to report to the Dodgers after being acquired from the Orioles on Thursday and it's unclear if he'll refuse the assignment and opt to become a free agent. He's still a capable arm and capable of helping out many clubs in a middle relief role.

Dodgers acquired RHP Ryan Webb, C Brian Ward, and a 2015 competitive balance pick (No. 74 overall) from the Orioles for RHP Ben Rowen and C Chris O'Brien.

The Dodgers will pay also Webb's $2.75 million salary for this season. The 29-year-old posted a respectable 3.87 ERA and 37/12 K/BB ratio over 49 1/3 innings last season and should be a useful arm in a bullpen which has suffered a bunch of injuries.

MASN Sports' Roch Kubatko reports that the Orioles are trading reliever Ryan Webb to the Dodgers.

No official announcement yet from the teams involved, but according to various reports, Webb, minor league catcher Brian Ward, and a competitive balance pick are headed to the Dodgers while right-hander Ben Rowen and catcher Chris O'Brien are going back to Baltimore. Webb, who was recently designated for assignment by the Orioles, posted a 3.87 ERA and 37/12 K/BB ratio across 49 1/3 innings last season and will make $2.75 million this season. The Dodgers are reportedly talking on his salary.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Orioles are having trade talks involving Ryan Webb.

Webb was recently designated for assignment after passing through waivers unclaimed. He boasts a career 3.37 ERA and is an extreme groundball pitcher, but evidently no one is interested in him at his $2.75 million salary. The O's should be able to find a taker if they agree to pick up some of the contract.

Orioles designated RHP Ryan Webb for assignment.

The move opens a 40-man roster spot for Ryan Lavarnway. Webb, a 29-year-old right-hander, posted a respectable 3.87 ERA, 1.257 WHIP, and 37/12 K/BB ratio in 49 1/3 innings last season for Baltimore. But he already passed through waivers once this spring.
Mon, Apr 6, 2015 11:40:00 AM

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that Ryan Webb has passed through waivers unclaimed.

Webb is set to make $2.75 million this season, and that evidently is more than other clubs were willing to pay. Due to his service time, Connolly says Webb would have to agree to be assigned to Triple-A Norfolk. Webb boasts a career 3.37 ERA and is an extreme groundball pitcher.
