Focus Area
Comments
Fastball:Webb threw his fastball up into the mid-90s.
Fastball movement:He muscles the ball to the plate, so it's more about speed than movement.
Curve:It's below average now and needs improvement.
Slider:It's in the same boat as the curve, below average and needing some work.
Control:He is behind in the command department as well.
Poise:He is very aggressive and competitive on the mound.
Physical Description:Webb is a big, strong and physical pitcher.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Size, strength and velocity.
Weaknesses:The other facets of his game -- namely, command and his secondary pitches, all lag behind the heater.
Summary:There are things about Webb that scouts love: his size, his strength, his aggressiveness on the mound. Most of all, there's the velocity, which gets up to the mid-90s. What's lacking are other pitches -- his curve and slider are below average -- and his command. The team that has seen enough glimpses in those areas that convince them he'll improve will take a flier on his arm strength. That could happen within the first few rounds.
