2020 Fantasy Outlook
Webb was effective in his first stint in the majors last season, notching nine holds and two saves in 36 outings before an elbow injury ended his campaign in mid-July. Enthusiasm about his 1.39 ERA and 1.11 WHIP should be tempered, however, as his 4.29 FIP implies that a fair amount of luck was involved in his success. Indeed, Webb's .233 BABIP is likely unsustainable given his middling hard-hit rate (38.9%), though a 17.5 IFFB% does explain some of his good fortune. The right-hander's 86.0% strand rate also figures to regress as his BABIP rises, especially since Webb didn't strike out many batters (21.4 K%) in his 32.1 major-league innings. Webb does have the tools to be an effective reliever -- he throws a 95 mph fastball with good spin and held hitters to a .152 BAA on his curve -- but he figures to be more of a seventh-inning setup man than a shutdown closer.

Should be ready for Opening Day

November 16, 2019
Webb (elbow) is expected to be healthy in time for Opening Day, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Webb missed the second half of last season with a right elbow impingement that eventually required surgery. However, he should be recovered for the start of 2020, and he is expected to serve in the major-league bullpen after he was effective prior to his injury. The 26-year-old recorded a 1.39 ERA with a 28:12 K:BB over 36 appearances in 2019.

This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
