Brandon Webb impressive
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Brandon Webb likes his velocity after
another bullpen session.
Webb threw 46 pitches Tuesday, then said he "felt strong at the
end" and wanted to keep going.
It was the former NL Cy Young Award winner's second time on the
mound in three days after the Rangers had him go through an
extended program to build arm strength. Webb hasn't pitched in a
major league game since shoulder surgery that followed the 2009
opener for Arizona.
Manager Ron Washington says he's seeing what he wants from Webb,
that the right-hander is making progress.
Webb threw 18 pitches more than he did Sunday, which was his
first time on a mound in 10 days. He says he's having no issues.
