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.

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.

Ryan Webb (knee) is slated to throw to live hitters on Thursday.

Webb tweaked his left knee during a workout last weekend, but he's feeling better now and recently resumed throwing from a mound. Assuming all goes well Thursday, he should be cleared to get back into game action.
Wed, Mar 18, 2015 08:24:00 AM

Ryan Webb (knee) will throw another bullpen session before returning to game action.

Webb tweaked his knee during a workout last weekend, but he has already resumed throwing from a mound. He won't need many outings to get ready for the season, so there's no need to rush him back out there.
Tue, Mar 17, 2015 11:27:00 AM

Ryan Webb (knee) expects to return to Grapefruit League action this week.

Webb tweaked his knee last weekend during a workout in Orioles camp, but he was able to throw off a mound this past Sunday and is planning to do agility drills on Monday. The right-handed reliever should be fine for the beginning of the regular season.
Mon, Mar 16, 2015 09:24:00 AM

Ryan Webb (knee) is hopeful that the swelling in his left knee will disappear within the next few days.

Webb injured the knee during a workout on Saturday. An MRI showed no structural damage. He hasn't pitched since the injury and might not be ready to go this weekend, but assuming there are no setbacks, he should return to action soon. Webb put up a 3.83 ERA and a 37/12 K/BB ratio over 49 1/3 innings for the Orioles last season.
