Allen Webster picks up a quality start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Red Sox pitcher Allen Webster picked up a quality start Tuesday against the Angels. 

Webster allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings. He struck out three and walked two. Webster picked well with the exception of one inning. In the third, Webster ran into trouble. After getting a groundout to start the inning, Webster gave up a double, single, triple and single to the next four batters. Three runs crossed the plate during the inning. Webster would settle in at that point, but the damage had been done.

The Red Sox managed to battle back, giving Webster a no-decision. He'll take on the Mariners in his next start.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Allen Webster loses control in early exit


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Red Sox pitcher Allen Webster struggled with his control yet again Saturday, in a 6-4 loss to the Yankees.

Webster had a 3-0 lead after the first two innings, but came completely unraveled in the top of the third. The Yankees scored four runs against him in the frame, largely thanks to five walks issued in the frame. He was lifted with one out remaining in the third, finishing with four runs allowed on two hits and six walks over 2 2/3 innings, with one strikeout on 71 pitches.

Webster has walked 11 batters with just five strikeouts through the first two starts of his season, a span of just eight innings. He is 1-1 heading into his next outing, scheduled for Friday against the Angels.   


Value hard to find among Red Sox rotation candidates


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Red Sox have decided to go all-in on next season, turning the rotation over to a slew of young guys after the trades of Jon Lester and John Lackey prior to the deadline. With so many innings up for grabs, Fantasy owners will want to keep a close eye on how things shake out, especially given the team's abundance of seemingly capable young starters.

Among the group of pitchers expected to get a shot at some point down the stretch are Anthony Ranaudo, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa, Brandon Workman and Joe Kelly. The latter four all have at least some major-league experience, though Ranaudo will get at least a taste of the majors when he debuts Friday against the Yankees. Of these five pitchers, who, if anyone, should Fantasy owners have their eyes on?

For now, it looks like De La Rosa, Ranaudo, Webster, Workman and Clay Buchholz have the next five spots in the rotation locked up, though a spot might open up for Kelly at some point once he reports to the team. De La Rosa, Buchholz and Kelly all have some measure of major-league success under their belts, though none profiles as a high-upside Fantasy option, given their middling track records so far. If upside is to be found, it is likely to come in the form of one of the other options. 

Webster has the best prospect pedigree among the group, and he and Ranaudo probably have the highest ceilings for now. Of course, the obvious caveats about young pitching apply. Though their upside is tantalizing, we simply don't have any record of success at the major-league level to depend on.

The Red Sox don't have a lot of sure things for their long-term rotation, and they will need to use these last few months get an idea of who they can count on next season. The question for Fantasy owners is whether they want their roster to be the team's laboratory during the most important months of the season. 

The young guys in Boston will all get their turns, but there isn't anyone in the rotation right now that screams "must-add," either due to a lack of upside or proven track record. AL-only owners might be smart to take a flier on anyone currently in the team's rotation, but it doesn't look like anyone here is worth consideration in mixed-leagues at this time. 


Allen Webster gets another shot in rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Red Sox pitcher Allen Webster will get another turn in the rotation, MLB.com reports. Webster allowed two runs on three hits over 5 1/3 innings during his first shot in the rotation. He will likely make his next start Saturday against the Yankees.

"Everything points to Allen making that start. There's no plans right now to make any changes in our rotation," manager John Farrell said.

Allen Webster wins in first start Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Red Sox pitcher Allen Webster picked up a win in his first start this season.

Webster allowed two runs on three hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out four and walked five during the outing. Control was clearly an issue during the start, but Webster mostly pitched his way out of trouble. The one time it did come back to hurt him was in the third inning. After giving up a walk and a single, Webster allowed a two-run double against Desmond Jennings. That was the only damage done against Webster all game.

With the win, Webster improved to 1-0 on the season. If he gets another shot in the rotation, his next start would come against the Yankees. 


Red Sox recall Allen Webster Saturday, will start Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) The Red Sox have recalled pitcher Allen Webster prior to Saturday's game against Tampa Bay, the team announced. Webster is scheduled to make the start Sunday in Tampa. He posted a 3.10 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 122 innings at Triple-A Pawtucket this season.

Allen Webster named Sunday starter for Red Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Red Sox pitcher Allen Webster will get the start Sunday against the Rays, according to the Boston Globe. Webster will take the spot of Jake Peavy, who was traded on Saturday. It remains to be seen if he'll remain in the rotation. Webster owns a 3.10 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 122 innings at Triple-A Pawtucket this season.

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

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.
