John Farrell names two possibilities for rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) John Farrell named Allen Webster and Brandon Workman as candidates to replace DL-bound Felix Doubront in the Red Sox starting rotation, per WEEI.

The former has thoroughly outperformed the latter this season. Webster is 2-2 with a 2.47 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 54 2/3 innings. He has yielded just seven earned runs in his last 34 2/3 innings. Workman has been workmanlike, but not effective. He is 3-1, but is saddled with a 5.12 ERA.


Red Sox may hold off activing Shane Victorino Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) The Red Sox may forego activating outfielder Shane Victorino Wednesday in order to bring up a pitcher to help reinforce an overtaxed bullpen, WEEI.com reports.

"We’ve got to take a look," manager John Farrell said. "We may have a pitching move because of how deep we’ve had to go in the bullpen the last couple of days, so Shane is not a given for [Wednesday]."

The Red Sox were only able to get 2 1/3 innings from Monday starter Clay Buchholz and 4 2/3 innings from Tuesday starter Jon Lester, so rather than push the bullpen much further, they could opt to add Allen Webster, who's scheduled to start for Triple-A Pawtucket Wednesday. If the team runs into another situation where it needs a lot of innings from the bullpen, Webster would presumably be able to provide several innings of work.


Three demoted Boston players 'not that far from big leagues'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) The Red Sox announced Monday they optioned pitcher Allen Webster and catcher Christian Vazquez to Triple-A Pawtucket, while also reassigning shortstop Deven Marrero to minor-league camp.

"They're three guys that showed very well," manager John Farrell said. "They are very talented and not that far from big leagues."


Allen Webster strikes out three vs. Orioles Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Red Sox pitcher Allen Webster surrendered two earned runs on two hits and three walks while striking out three in 3 1/3 innings as the Red Sox defeated the Orioles Tuesday, 6-5.

Webster bounced back from an ugly debut with three one-hit innings in his last outing but dealt with control issues Tuesday. He has given up five earned runs in eight innings this spring while posting a 5:4 K:BB ratio. Webster is not currently scheduled to open the season in the Boston rotation.


Red Sox announce expected rotation alignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Red Sox manager John Farrell announced Monday his expected rotation alignment for the start of the season. Farrell announced Jon Lester will top the rotation, and he will be followed up John Lackey, Felix Doubront, Jake Peavy and Clay Buchholz.

Farrell added Brandon Workman, Chris Capuano and Allen Webster will continue to be stretched out this spring in order to keep their innings up.


Veterans help Allen Webster thrive in last start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2014) Red Sox right-hander Allen Webster credited veteran teammates and fellow pitchers Jon Lester and John Lackey for his strong performance on Thursday.

The pair summoned Webster for a video session after a terrible first start and pointed out a minor problem with his delivery. Webster put that advice into action against the Marlins and pitched three shutout innings despite the inclusion of seven regulars in the Miami lineup.

"We looked at a little video, and they saw me drifting forward," Webster told the Boston Herald. "And they pulled me aside and told me to stay back over the rubber and get more angle, more downhill to the plate. It's mainly right before I throw the ball. I pull sideways instead of pull down, and I get alongside the ball and tug the ball to the side or sail it up and away.

"You pay attention to every word [when Lackey and Lester give advice]. It's pretty cool. I was very thankful that they would take the time like that."

Webster needs to keep the ball down. He yielded seven home runs in just 30 1/3 innings a year ago with the Sox.


Allen Webster tosses three scoreless frames vs. Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2014) Red Sox prospect Allen Webster bounced back from his first spring start with a dominant outing Thursday against Miami in Grapefruit League play.

Webster allowed one hit and no walks while striking out one over three scoreless frames. He has allowed three runs over his first 4 2/3 innings this spring, owning a 5.79 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP over that span.

Allen Webster clobbered by Twins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) Red Sox prospect Allen Webster was knocked around by Minnesota in a shortened start Saturday. The Twins slammed line drives all over the field as Webster was removed after 1 2/3 innings having given up four hits and three earned runs. He fanned and walked one.

Webster was mashed in a short stint with the team last year, finishing the season with an 8.70 ERA. He appears destined for demotion, particularly if he continues to perform with the same effeciency as he did on Saturday.


Allen Webster solid in brief start


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/29/2013) Allen Webster was called on to throw only 49 pitches for the Red Sox over three innings, but he held the Orioles scoreless in his seventh start of the season. Webster did not allow a hit in Sunday's regular season finale, but he did hand out three walks, while striking out two batters.

As Webster did not figure in the decision, his record remained at 1-2, but he lowered his ERA to 8.60.


Allen Webster gets to start finale


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/29/2013) The Boston Globe reports that Allen Webster will start Sunday's season finale for the Red Sox at the Orioles. John Lackey had initially been scheduled to be Boston's starting pitcher.

Webster has made seven appearances (six starts) this season and has gone 1-2 with a 9.55 ERA.


Red Sox recall Allen Webster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2013) The Red Sox have recalled pitcher Allen Webster from Triple-A Pawtucket. Webster, who is 1-2 with a 9.57 ERA in 26 1/3 innings over six starts with the Red Sox, is expected to pitch out of the bullpen down the stretch.

Allen Webster's move to bullpen not permanent


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2013) Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated Thursday that pitching prospect Allen Webster's move to the bullpen was only for the remainder of this season, WEEI reports.

The Red Sox could use Webster out of the bullpen at the major-league level over the final few weeks of the regular season. He's 8-4 with a 3.60 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 116:43 K:BB ratio in 105 innings over 21 starts with Triple-A Pawtucket.


Allen Webster knocked around in minors


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2013) Red Sox pitcher Allen Webster had a disastrous start at Triple-A Pawtucket Sunday. 

Webster gave up seven runs in 1 1/3 innings. He gave up three hits, but walked five batters. Control was the biggest issue, as only 37 percent of Webster's pitches were thrown for strikes. Since his return to the minors, Webster has given up 12 runs in six innings. He had a 9.57 ERA in six starts in the majors. 


Allen Webster demoted by Boston


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2013) The Red Sox demoted starter Allen Webster to Triple-A Pawtucket Wednesday, the Boston Herald reports. Webster started Tuesday in Seattle and did not do well. 

He allowed seven earned runs on six hits and two walks over just 2 1/3 innings and 53 pitches and took a no-decision. He struck out two and his ERA is now at 9.57 with a 1-2 record over six big league starts. 

Boston needs a starter for Sunday at Oakland. Brandon Workman and Steven Wright are options. 


Allen Webster struggles in no-decision


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2013) Red Sox starter Allen Webster was horrendous Tuesday night in Seattle. His only saving grace was the fact that All-Star Hisashi Iwakuma wasn't any better for the Mariners.

Webster and Iwakuma each took no-decisions as the game was tied 7-7 shortly after both starters were out of the game. Webster surrendered a two-run homer to Kendrys Morales in the first inning before Morales went deep again off him in the third. The Boston starter allowed seven earned runs on six hits and two walks over just 2 1/3 innings and 53 pitches but happily took the no-decision. He struck out two and his ERA is now at 9.57.

The 23-year-old Webster (1-2) was making just his sixth big league start Tuesday. He had earned his first major-league victory his last time out with two runs allowed over six solid innings against San Diego. He's allowed five or more runs in three of his six starts and is currently scheduled to make his next starting appearance Sunday at Oakland.

Allen Webster downs Padres first win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2013) Red Sox starting pitcher Allen Webster was not overwhelming Thursday against the Padres, but he threw a quality start in his first major-league win.

The offense provided Webster plenty of support in an 8-2 final. He allowed two runs -- one in the third inning and one in the fifth -- and five hits in six innings. He walked four and struck out four while throwing 54 of 97 pitches for strikes.

Webster has two quality starts in five major-league outings and has gone six innings in each of his last two starts. Webster (1-2) has a 7.88 ERA. He has struck out 19 and walked 12 in 24 innings.

Webster will try to build on his first win in his next start, scheduled for Tuesday in Seattle. 


Allen Webster hit hard in no-deicison


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2013) Red Sox starting pitcher Allen Webster was unable to pick up his first win as he received a no-decision Friday night against the Blue Jays. Webster was charged with four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over six innings.

Webster, who gave up just two earned runs in his first start, has allowed 17 runs combined over his last three starts (12 innings). He is scheduled to make his next start Thursday at home against the Padres.

Allen Webster tabbed for Friday start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Webster is 0-3 with an 11.25 ERA through three starts.


Allen Webster staying in rotation


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2013) Red Sox manager John Farrell said, as of Sunday, that Allen Webster will make his next scheduled start Saturday against Toronto, the Boston Globe reports. 

Farrell said after his start Saturday, in which he lost to the Tigers, that Webster showed major league ability with little command.

Webster has made three starts for Boston this season. He's 0-2 with an 11.25 ERA. He's given up 13 runs over his last two outings on 14 hits and five walks spanning six innings with seven Ks. Farrell did suggest that Alfredo Aceves or Rubby De La Rosa could also end up entering the mix. 


Allen Webster surrenders five runs in loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2013) Red Sox pitcher Allen Webster took the loss Saturday against the Tigers, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five in 4 1/3 innings.

Allen Webster recalled for start


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2013) The Red Sox recalled Allen Webster from Triple-A Pawtucket Saturday to start against the Tigers.

Allen Webster has inside track over Rubby De La Rosa


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2013) With Clay Buchholz going on the disabled list, the Red Sox need a starter for Saturday at Detroit, the Boston Globe reports. The two names associated with the spot start have been Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster

Webster seems the more likely option because De La Rosa would have to replace a player going on the disabled list if he gets the call. 


Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster being considered for spot start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2013) If Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz can't make his next start, the team will consider using either Rubby De La Rosa or Allen Webster for a spot start, according to CSNNE.com. 

De La Rosa has been rehabbing in the minors, and hasn't started in the majors since 2011. He was part of the team's mega-deal with the Dodgers last year. He has a 2.89 ERA in 43 2/3 innings in Triple-A.

Webster has started two games with the team this year. He has an 11.74 ERA in 7 2/3 innings in the majors. He's been much better in Triple-A, posting a 2.98 ERA in 51 1/3 innings. 


Allen Webster a future starting candidate


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2013) Red Sox hurler Allen Webster, pitching with Triple-A Pawtucket, could be a candidate to start next Saturday at Detroit if Clay Buchholz must go on the DL, ESPN reports.
