After watching his teammates storm out of the gate by sweeping the Red Sox on opening weekend, Brandon Webb took the hill Monday to throw live batting practice. It did not go well. Just ask him.
"It went bad," Webb told Star-Telegram.com. "I was pretty wild."
So wild, in fact, that Webb actually hit three of the minor-league hitters he was facing. And, again, this was batting practice. It's not all doom and gloom, though, because Webb was throwing without pain. He had been shut down the past few weeks as he was unable to get loose last time he threw.
Webb plans on throwing again Friday and if things go well, the next step would appear to be a simulated game.
