Webb (knee) should be able to pitch by Friday or Saturday, MASN Sports reports.

Webb underwent an MRI on Monday that revealed swelling in his left knee, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Webb lost weight in the offseason, but he appears to be healthy following non-throwing shoulder surgery during the offseason, MLB.com's Britt Ghiroli reports.

Webb spent most of the season with the Orioles in 2014, but he was optioned for the month of August when the team acquired Andrew Miller. This spring Webb is trying to earn one of the last couple of open slots at the back of the bullpen. Webb is a strong ground ball pitcher, with a 1.95 ground ball to fly ball ratio, but his fastball velocity dipped to a career low mark of 92.00 MPH in 2014.

Webb had minor surgery on his non-throwing shoulder shortly after the 2014 season ended, the Baltimore Sun reports.
