Allen Webster was ejected from Monday's Cactus League start against the Dodgers after hitting Justin Turner with a pitch.

It was the second time Webster hit Turner in the game. Warnings were issued to both sides after Mark Trumbo was hit in response to the first Turner hit-by-pitch, so the home plate umpire ejected Webster and manager Chip Hale after Turner was hit again. Webster is pitching for a rotation spot this spring, so he probably didn't do it on purpose, but he's not looking likely to make the big club at this point anyway.

Allen Webster served up four runs in 2 2/3 innings in Thursday's start against the Reds.

The Reds greeted Webster rudely, hitting four consecutive singles to lead off the ballgame en route to a three-run first inning. Overall, the Reds scored their four runs on seven hits and a walk. Webster did strike out two in the process. The right-hander, acquired from the Red Sox over the winter, will have to show better results in the latter half of the spring if he wants a spot at the back of the Diamondbacks' starting rotation.
Mar 12 - 8:11 PM

Diamondbacks acquired RHP Allen Webster, RHP Rubby De La Rosa and INF Raymel Flores from the Red Sox for LHP Wade Miley.

The 24-year-old hurler came to the Red Sox in the 2012 mega-trade that sent Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford to the Dodgers. He struggled in 11 starts with the Red Sox in 2014, compiling a 5.03 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 36/28 K/BB ratio in 59 innings. He'll be one of many strong young options competing for the final spots in the Diamondbacks rotation in the spring.

Allen Webster delivered a strong performance against the Rays on Thursday, picking up the win after giving up just one run in seven innings.

Webster suffered through a tough August, but seemed to turn the corner in September, finishing out the month with a 2.63 ERA in four starts. He scattered seven hits and a walk while striking out five against the Rays. Webster polishes off the 2014 season with poor results over 11 starts, sporting a 5.03 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and a 36/28 K/BB ratio. As a consensus top prospect, however, he should be expected to achieve greater things next season when he will vie for a solidified role in the starting rotation.

Allen Webster pitched well in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday, surrendering just one run on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings of work.

Webster walked one and struck out three on the night. The only damage against him came on a run-scoring infield single in the third inning. While he has shown inconsistency over his 10 starts with the Red Sox this season, he has now allowed three runs or less in each of his last three outings. He'll wrap up his 2014 season when he takes on the Rays next week.

Allen Webster pitched well in Friday's victory over the Royals, allowing just two runs on four hits over his six innings of work.

Webster walked one and struck out two on the night. The only blow against him was a two-run homer off the bat of Eric Hosmer in the fourth inning. He has shown inconsistency in his brief time with the Red Sox this season, but is incredibly talented and has shown the capability to get big league hitters out. He'll look to improve upon a 6.04 ERA and 1.51 WHIP when he takes on the Orioles in Baltimore on Friday.

Allen Webster allowed four runs (three earned) over five and a third innings against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Webster gave up a two-run single to Adam Lind in the first inning and a two-run home run to Jose Bautista in the sixth. He struck out five and walked two while allowing six hits in his five and a third innings of work. Webster avoided the loss after Boston came back to win 9-8. The sketchy start brought his season ERA to an unsightly 6.47 and his WHIP to a ghastly 1.50. While Webster hasn't been effective in his starts, Boston's playing out the string and will probably keep him in the rotation for the rest of the year.

Allen Webster allowed six runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Mariners on Sunday.

Webster gave up three first-inning runs and didn't have it all afternoon, finishing with eight hits and two walks allowed. It was a bad outing after Webster had turned in three straight quality starts. The right-hander dropped to 3-2 with a 5.81 ERA in six starts this season. He'll take on the Rays on Saturday.

Allen Webster yielded three runs in six innings Tuesday in a no-decision against the Angels.

It wasn't stellar, but Webster gave the Red Sox the kind of outing the team wants from him: lots of grounders and only a couple of walks. He's pitched well enough in his last three outings to suggest that he'll hold down a rotation spot the rest of the way.

Allen Webster improved to 3-1, allowing four runs (three earned) in six innings as the Red Sox bashed their way to a 9-4 victory over the Astros on Thursday.

Webster was behind the eight-ball, trailing 4-0 after four innings, but the Red Sox would soon bring the lumber. They pounded out seven runs in the sixth, putting Webster in line for the win. The 24-year-old right-hander allowed five hits, including a two-run home run to Matt Dominguez, while walking three and striking out two. He'll take a 4.79 ERA and a lopsided 10/16 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's home start against the Angels.
Thu, Aug 14, 2014 10:54:00 PM

Allen Webster lasted 6 2/3 innings and limited the Angels to two runs Friday to earn a victory for the Red Sox.

This looked like a good matchup for the Halos with Jered Weaver starting, but they ended up dropping their fourth straight. Webster, who lasted just 2 2/3 innings and walked six against the Yankees last week, issued just a pair of free passes tonight, though he did hit two batters. The Red Sox figure to stick with him through the growing pains in order to figure out whether he can be counted on as a part of next year's rotation. He has one of the highest ceilings among their young starters.

Allen Webster allowed four runs in two and two-thirds innings in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Yankees.

Webster was getting opportunities like Saturday's start because of Boston's rotation exodus, but he did not come through this time around. He allowed four runs and six walks in just two and two-thirds innings. While Webster might get another opportunity, Boston might prefer options like Brandon Workman at this point.

Allen Webster will get another start on Saturday versus the Yankees.

Webster earned another turn after holding the Rays to two runs over 5 1/3 frames on Sunday. "Everything points to Allen making that start. There's no plans right now to make any changes in our rotation," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Webster will need to pitch well to retain his spot in the rotation, as Brandon Workman looms.

Allen Webster walked five and allowed three hits but held the Rays to two runs over 5 1/3 innings to earn the win in his season debut Sunday.

Webster was recalled in the wake of the Jake Peavy trade, and he delivered in his first start of 2014. The right-hander wasn't dominant, but the only damage came on a two-run double by Desmond Jennings in the third inning. Webster likely earned another start with the good outing, and that should come next weekend against the Yankees.
