Brandon Webb


The East Valley Tribune reported that Webb is expected to come back from soreness in his right elbow and return to the Diamondbacks' rotation on Saturday against the Florida Marlins.


Webb, who missed his last scheduled start with a sore elbow, threw in the bullpen Tuesday and is expected to start either Friday or Saturday against Florida.


Webb, who missed his last start with soreness in his right elbow, played catch in the outfield before Monday night's game and will throw in the bullpen on Tuesday. Barring any setbacks, Webb is expected to make his scheduled start on Friday.


The Arizona Republic reported that the Diamondbacks will decide on Friday when Webb will pitch next after he suffered a sore right elbow. The right-hander underwent an MRI on Tuesday that showed no damage and he pitched a bullpen session on Thursday that went well. He is scheduled to start on Saturday against the Houston Astros and Roger Clemens


Webb was selected to his first All-Star team Sunday as one of the eight starting pitchers on the National League roster. He is 9-3 with a 2.72 ERA this season.


Webb made his 108th career start on Wednesday for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The right-hander did not factor in the loss, lasting seven innings while giving up four hits and no runs in the 1-0 loss.


Webb threw a seven-hitter in the Diamondbacks' 3-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday to become the first eight-game winner in baseball. The right-hander has thrown 18 consecutive scoreless innings and is scheduled to face the New York Mets and Pedro Martinez on Wednesday.


Webb threw a four-hitter to become the National League's first seven-game winner as the Diamondbacks routed the Braves 13-0 on Saturday. The right-hander struck out a season-high eight and walked one in the second shutout and fourth complete game of his career.


Webb became the National League's first six-game winner Wednesday, surviving a shaky start to improve to 6-0 in Arizona's 7-4 victory over Pittsburgh. He worked out of jams repeatedly while allowing 10 hits and three runs over six innings. He still managed to post a quality start, his eighth in eight outings.


Webb improved to 3-0 this season after tossing eight innings of one-run ball in the Diamondbacks' 4-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Monday. The Arizona right-hander also hit an RBI single in the ninth inning to plate the Diamondbacks' final run.


Webb has re-signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks, agreeing to a contract extension that will keep him locked up through the 2009 campaign. The new deal also includes a club option for the 2010 season. The 26-year-old right-hander, known as a groudball pitcher, recorded a career high for wins last year, going 14-12 with a 3.54 ERA and one complete game in 33 starts. He struck out 172 batters and walked 59 in 229 innings of work.


Webb tossed eight solid innings to record the win in Thursday's 3-1 victory over the Florida Marlins. The Diamondbacks' righthander allowed just the single run on four hits, striking out seven and walking one. With the performance, he improved to 10-8 on the season and lowered his ERA to 3.78.


Webb rejoined the Diamondbacks on Monday after not traveling with the team the previous night, due to a virus. The righthander was slated to take the mound against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday night, but instead, he will get the call on Tuesday. Webb has not won since June 23, losing his last four decisions. For the year, he is 8-7 with a 4.03 ERA in 20 outings.
