Logan Webb

Logan Webb had a shaky rookie campaign, but he definitely showed some promising signs.

Coming off of a PED suspension, not many knew what to expect from the 22-year-old right-hander in his first taste of MLB action.

In his MLB debut, he went five strong innings and gave up just one run against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

There were a few hiccups along the way, like his start against the St. Louis Cardinals where he gave up seven earned runs, but he finished strong with a pair of quality starts, the second of which came against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers in the final series of the year.

Armed with a deadly changeup and plus slider, he struck out 37 batters in 39.2 innings, though his 3.2 BB/9 rate will need to improve going forward.

I think Webb has the stuff to eventually be one of the team’s top starters for the team, but he needs some further refinement before he can be talked about as a future ace.
