Allen Webster took a no-decision, giving up four runs in 3 2/3 innings, but the Diamondbacks still managed to pull out a 10-6 win against the Dodgers on Monday.

Webster allowed three solo home runs in the fourth inning, proving to be his undoing. Two were back-to-back shots by Andre Ethier and Yasmani Grandal. The third was a tape-measure shot by Joc Pederson. Following that, Webster issued a walk and a single before getting yanked. All told, he gave up five hits, walked four, and struck out three. In four starts, Webster has a 7.11 ERA with a 1.68 WHIP and a 12/14 K/BB ratio over 19 innings. He's due to start at home against the Rockies next.
Jun 30 - 1:40 AM

Allen Webster surrendered five runs in 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

It will be interesting to see how patient the Diamondbacks are with Webster. He pitched well in his first start after his surprising callup, but this makes two bad outings in a row, leaving him with a 6.46 ERA. If he's not better next time out, the Diamondbacks could pull Josh Collmenter, Randall Delgado or Daniel Hudson out of the pen to replace him.
Jun 25 - 1:29 AM

Allen Webster was hit hard in Thursday’s loss to the Angels, surrendering six runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Webster also issued five free passes while fanning four in the contest. He had held the Halos to a pair of solo home runs through the first five frames, but seemed to tire in the sixth as the Angels erupted for four more runs to chase Webster from the game. It doesn’t get any easier for him next time out, as he’ll carry a troublesome 6.55 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into a battle against the Rockies in Colorado on Wednesday.
Jun 18 - 6:21 PM

Allen Webster allowed just two runs in 5 2/3 innings Saturday in a victory over the Giants.

Webster walked three and struck out two to earn his first win of the season. The 25-year-old should have a chance to stay in the starting rotation now that Josh Collmenter has been relegated to bullpen duty. With only a career 5.78 K/9, he isn't worth owning in fantasy.
Jun 13 - 10:25 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Allen Webster from Triple-A Reno.

Webster will start for the D'Backs on Saturday, taking the place of Josh Collmenter who has been shifted to the bullpen. The 25-year-old posted a 5.03 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 36/28 K/BB ratio over 11 starts with the Red Sox in 2014. He can safely be avoided in all mixed leagues.
Jun 13 - 3:38 PM

Allen Webster will join Arizona's rotation and start Saturday against the Giants.

Webster is being rushed into the rotation despite giving up six runs in his last start for Triple-A Reno. He had a 9.00 ERA in five Triple-A start, missing a month in the interim due to shoulder fatigue. It's really hard to believe that the Diamondbacks are turning to him already.
Jun 13 - 1:40 AM

Allen Webster has been placed on Triple-A Reno's disabled list due to right shoulder fatigue.

The shoulder issues should help to explain Webster's 19.29 ERA through his first two outings for Reno. It doesn't seem serious, as the D'Backs only expect him to miss a couple starts, but obviously he's not going to be an option for the big club for a while.
Apr 20 - 8:51 PM

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Allen Webster to Triple-A Reno.

Webster registered an 8.18 ERA in five appearances this spring in the Cactus League. The 25-year-old righty owns a 6.25 ERA in 89 1/3 career major league innings.
Mar 30 - 3:17 PM

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.
Mar 23 - 5:49 PM

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.
