Daniel Webb gets rocked in loss to Astros


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) White Sox reliever Daniel Webb was hit hard and took the loss Sunday afternoon at home against the Astros, dropping to 5-3 on the year.

Unable to maintain a 7-7 tie, Webb permitted a run-scoring double to Matt Dominguez, a two-run double to L.J. Hoes and a run-scoring single to Marwin Gonzalez in the seventh inning. He was charged with four runs on four hits and one walk while striking out one in 1 1/3 innings of relief. He owns a 3.74 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP over 43 1/3 innings of relief.

Daniel Webb working on delivery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) White Sox reliever Daniel Webb is working with bullpen coach Bobby Thigpen on his delivery, reports MLB.com.  "It's throwing a pitch and knowing what I did on a bad pitch," Webb said. "Feeling it, that I have to fix that right away and not let it keep going."

Webb is 4-2 with a 3.12 ERA in 40 1/3 innings.


Daniel Webb takes loss on walkoff wild pitch Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb was stuck with a loss after allowing the winning run to cross the plate in the bottom of the 12th inning on a wild pitch in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Orioles.

Webb (4-2) walked the first batter he faced, who advanced to third base on a single by the following batter. The reliever then uncorked a wild pitch to end the lengthy game that endured an extra-innings weather delay. Webb owns a 3.06 ERA and 27:26 K:BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings.


Where else do the White Sox turn for saves?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/29/2014) We've said it before, but with Ronald Belisario blowing two of his five save opportunities -- and nearly two more -- in his first week and a half on the job, the White Sox have to turn to Daniel Webb pretty soon here, right?

Not that trying out Belisario in the role (which is still technically his, by the way) was a bad call. He's been an effective late-inning reliever before and has been one of the more consistent strike-throwers out of the White Sox bullpen this year. But clearly, he isn't getting a job done.

While he certainly wouldn't pass as a strike-thrower, issuing 18 walks in 26 1/3 innings, Webb has been one of the White Sox's more reliable relievers this season. His ERA isn't as low as Zach Putnam's or Jake Petricka's, but he throws hard, which is what most teams want in a closer, and has a 1.35 ERA in his last 11 appearances.

If Robin Ventura doesn't turn to Webb next, opting for Putnam, Petricka or -- who knows? -- Javy Guerra instead, he's clearly making a deliberate effort to avoid the young right-hander, perhaps because he doesn't trust him to throw strikes.

And perhaps he shouldn't. Truth be told, whoever claims the closer role for the White Sox is about the last closer I'd want in Fantasy, even behind Chad Qualls.


Daniel Webb picks up fourth win Friday vs. Yankees


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb struck out one and walked one in 1 1/3 scoreless innings, earning his fourth relief win Friday night against the Yankees. Adam Dunn launched a walkoff two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to give his team the win.

Webb owns a 2.39 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP and 20:18 K:BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings.

Who should you target for saves in the White Sox's bullpen?


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(5/20/2014) The White Sox put Matt Lindstrom on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle injury on Tuesday, so the race for saves is officially on over on the South Side.

The presumptive favorite will be probably be Daniel Webb, who along with Nate Jones was competing with Lindstrom for closing honors back in spring training. However, Webb has hardly established himself as a clear frontrunner based on his performance this season. His 2.63 ERA is respectable enough, but he has a 1.50 WHIP thanks to a 6.4 BB/9 ratio. Webb's 7.1 K/9 ratio also doesn't scream "lockdown ninth inning option" either.

Lefty Scott Downs has some closing experience, but he, too, has had control issues this season. The latter has also been true for Jake Petricka, who nailed down the save on Monday in Kansas City, after Lindstrom departed with his injury and Scott Downs retired lefty Eric Hosmer.

Should Webb, Downs or Petricka get the first shot at closing, none has pitched well enough to inspire confidence that he can keep the job. Sooner or later, though, it could be Ronald Belisario's turn, and he appears to have the best skill set for the closer's role. Though he has had some elevated walk rates in the past, Belisario is a strike-thrower, and he is also highly adept at getting ground balls. In the absence of a flamethrower like Jones, Belisario is probably the best bet to give the White Sox a reliable presence in the ninth inning.

Since he may not get the first chance to close, it's not worth picking up Belisario in standard and shallow mixed leagues, but he should at least be on your Scout Team. He's also worth a speculative pickup in deeper leagues.


Daniel Webb faces one batter Monday, earns win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb picked up his third win of the season by striking out the only batter he faced in his team's 3-1, 12-inning win over the Cubs Monday.

Webb (3-0) came on with two men on and two outs in the 11th inning of Monday's game and the scored tied 1-1, but he was able to get the final out on a swinging third strike. He owns a 2.65 ERA and 14:10 K:BB ratio in 17 innings.


Daniel Webb earns one-out win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) White Sox reliever Daniel Webb picked up his first career win in just about the easiest possible fashion Tuesday, in a 2-1 win over the Red Sox.

Webb entered the game with runners on first and second in a tie game, but had record just one out to finish the inning. He induced a ground out to end the frame, and the White Sox went on to score the winning run in the bottom half of the inning, earning Webb the win.

Web has been a solid contributor out of the White Sox bullpen, posting a 2.35 ERA in 7 2/3 innings of work. 


Matt Lindstrom wins closer's job for White Sox


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) White Sox manager Robin Ventura finally revealed his choice for closer Monday, giving the role to Matt Lindstrom over Nate Jones and Daniel Webb. Lindstrom, who has 45 career saves, had a 3.00 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in three relief appearances this spring.

White Sox manager waiting to reveal choice for closer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) White Sox manager Robin Ventura has picked a closer, but he will wait to tell the media until he has a chance to talk with Nate Jones, Matt Lindstrom and Daniel Webb, who are considered the three finalists for the role.

"I do (know), but I'm going to talk to them a little bit later and then they'll find out," Ventura said, per ESPN. "I'm not going to say now."


White Sox refuse to name closer


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2014) The White Sox will not name a closer prior to opening day, according to the Chicago Tribune

"Come watch the game Monday," pitching coach Don Cooper said. "If we have the lead, you'll find out who is closing." Cooper said the candidates for the role will know their job Sunday. Matt Lindstrom, Nate Jones and darkhorse Daniel Webb are all in the running for the late-inning role. 


Daniel Webb throws 'heavier ball' in Friday BP session


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2014) White Sox rookie right-hander Daniel Webb, who got a late start to spring training after leaving camp due to a death in the family, threw an encouraging bullpen session on Friday.

"Daniel looked good," pitching coach Don Cooper told the Chicago Tribune. "...It sounded like a bowling ball hitting the glove. He was throwiing kind of a heavier ball."

Well, who will make his game debut Sunday, is a longshot in the battle for the closer job, which is headed by favorite Nate Jones and Matt Lindstrom, both of whom have been sidelined with nagging injuries.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
