Man, that was a long, incredibly awesome hiatus. Now back to business... I missed you guys too.
After undergoing shoulder surgery on Monday, Brandon Webb is done for the season.
The Arizona Diamondbacks righty, who has a history of being a rather durable workhorse, pitched on Opening Day and rode the pine the rest of the way. Up until then, he'd only landed on the disabled list one other time when he missed 15 days due to tendinitis in his pitching elbow back in 2003.
Webb, the National League Cy Young winner in 2006, should be able to play catch by October, according to skipper A.J. Hinch. Depending on whether that estimate is close or not, the D'Backs will be faced with the decision of either exercising his $8.5 million 2010 option or paying the $2 million buyout. Is he headed for free agency?
