San Francisco Giants starter Logan Webb

Logan Webb finished 2019 strong with consecutive quality starts against the Atlanta Braves (6.0 IP, 2 H, 1 ER) and Los Angeles Dodgers (6.0 IP, 6 H, 2 ER), two teams that were headed for the postseason.

The 23-year-old only pitched in eight games overall, and that small sample size showed us the promise and the downside of Webb going forward.

His 8.4 K/9 strikeout rate was in line with the eyeball assessment of his raw stuff on the mound, and the 3.2 BB/9 walk rate affirms his tendency to get a wild hair up his nose, as many young pitchers tend to do.

Baseball Reference projects a 4.61 ERA and a 9.1 K/9 rate for the upcoming season, and I think that ERA is close to spot on.

Overall, I expect him to build upon the promise he showed us in 2019 and put together a solid year in the Giants rotation.
