Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 65 | Slider: 50 | Control: 45 | Overall: 40

Webb has the chance to become the first player in the history of Tabor College, an NAIA school in Kansas, to reach the big leagues. Initially an infielder, he moved to the mound when his bat didn't progress, and he landed in the 18th round of the 2014 Draft after an outstanding spring in Tabor's rotation. He's put 2015 Tommy John surgery in his rear view mirror, moving into the bullpen upon his return and pitching his way up to Triple-A in 2018 to earn a spot on the 40-man roster last offseason.

Webb relies on two power pitches to get hitters out as a short reliever. His fastball has ticked upwards in those shorter stints, sitting in the 95-96 mph range, thrown with deception thanks to a quick arm. His breaking ball, a power slider, flashes above-average with good depth, though it's not always consistent. He cut his walk rate down in 2018, but he kept missing bats and carries a 11.1 K/9 rate into the 2019 season.

Webb led the organization with 18 saves in 2018, but without further consistency of his breaking ball and command, he's unlikely to close in the big leagues. He does have the stuff to pitch in the seventh inning, at the very least, in the near future.
