Webb has signed a minor league deal with the Giants and will report to Triple-A Sacramento, Steve Adams of MLB Trade Rumors reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 31-year-old was released by the Brewers last week after making just three appearances in spring training. Webb spent most of last season in the Rays' organization, where he posted a 5.19 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP over 18 relief appearances. He'll likely be limited to serving as organizational depth before having another shot at the majors.

Webb was released Wednesday by the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Webb was only able to make three appearances with the Brewers in Cactus League play, which didn't provide adequate opportunity for him to seriously contend for a bullpen spot. The journeyman middle reliever has been steady, if unspectacular, in a setup role for much of his career, but after turning in a 5.19 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 18 appearances with the Rays last season, Webb will likely have to settle for a minor-league contract first before getting another opportunity in the big leagues.

Webb signed a minor league deal with the Brewers on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training.

EDGE Analysis

He has a career 3.43 ERA, but has just 271 strikeouts in 393.1 innings, and his ERA and strikeout rate both took steps back in 2016. Look for him to compete for a low-leverage role with the Brewers.

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.

EDGE Analysis

Webb made four rehab outings before being activated Saturday. He's managed to avoid too much trouble out Tampa Bay's bullpen, despite posting a 1.531 WHIP.

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."
