Webb was signed by the White Sox on Friday, and assigned to Triple-A Charlotte, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Webb was recently released by the Rays on Wednesday, having posted a 5.19 ERA during 17.1 innings of work with the club this season. The 30-year-old has spent some time in the Rays' minor league system in 2016 also, allowing three earned runs in 3.2 innings of work between Triple-A Durham and High-A Charlotte. He will likely be used as organizational depth for the White Sox, but could get a chance at the major league level again later this summer.

Webb cleared waivers and was released by the Rays on Wednesday, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

EDGE Analysis

He posted a 5.19 ERA in 17.1 innings out of the Rays' bullpen prior to being DFA'd in late June. Considering he cleared waivers, Webb will be seeking a minor league deal with a team looking for organizational bullpen depth.

Webb was designated for assignment Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Webb was just activated from the DL over the weekend, and he'll now be removed from the 40-man roster. The right-hander will be subject to waivers, and if he passes through unclaimed will likely land at Triple-A. Tampa Bay recalled right-hander Danny Farquhar to take Webb's spot on the roster.

Webb (pectoral) could be activated "in the next few days" after a successful rehab appearance Monday for Triple-A Durham, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old fired a clean inning while striking out two, setting the stage for a possible return to the big league club later in the week. Webb's Monday outing was the best of the three he's had during the rehab process, as he'd given up an earned run in each of the first two trips to the mound for the Bulls. He's generated a solid 3.31 ERA over 16.1 innings for the Rays this season, with no holds or saves to his credit.

Webb (pectoral) will make his second rehab appearance for Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran reliever reported no setbacks after his first appearance, which came Wednesday night. Webb surrendered two hits and an earned run over 0.2 innings in that contest, with both outs coming on strikeouts. Assuming he emerges from Saturday's outing without further issues, the 30-year-old could re-join the major league club during next week's road trip.

Webb's pectoral injury, which has landed him on the disabled list, traces back to a May 26 outing versus the Marlins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran reliever was on the hill for a second consecutive game on May 26 when he apparently suffered the injury, according to manager Kevin Cash. Webb was touched up for three hits and an earned run in less than inning in that outing, the first time he'd given up a run since May 3. With the soreness persisting for multiple days, the team opted to give the 30-year-old some time to heal. "He just hasn't quite kicked it," Cash said. "We don't think it's ... too big of a deal. We just want to be cautious."

Webb was placed on the DL on Sunday due to a right pectoral strain, freelance Rays writer Roger Mooney reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old hasn't appeared in the last three games, but the Rays provided no indication he was dealing with an injury. With Webb heading to the DL, Brad Boxberger (abdomen) will be activated Monday in a corresponding move.

Webb had what manager Kevin Cash termed "his best outing" in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old was needed for what was easily his longest stint of the season, due to starter Chris Archer's ouster from the game after only three innings. Webb responded with three innings of two-hit, shutout ball, and struck out a trio of Tigers in the process. It marked his sixth consecutive scoreless outing, and brought his shrinking ERA down to 3.00, a far cry from the 5.63 figure he owned after a May 3 outing versus the Dodgers.

Webb surrendered only one hit in a scoreless eighth inning in Tuesday's 12-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old reliever now has four straight scoreless appearances, after giving up five hits and three runs (two earned) over 1.2 innings over a pair of outings in late April and early May. Webb has largely been effective for the short stretches of work he's been tabbed for, pitching no more than 1.1 innings in any trip to the mound this season. He's in the midst of a solid stretch, having lowered his ERA almost two full runs to 3.75 over his last four appearances.
