Brandon WebbFormer Cy Young-winner Brandon Webb's comeback has hit a snag in rehab. With his velocity down, the Rangers will not have him make his scheduled start in extended spring training on Thursday, the team announced.

Instead, Webb will work in the bullpen and work on his mechanics.

Webb has made two rehab starts and hasn't allowed an earned run in five innings, but his fastball has topped out at 84 mph. While Webb's never been a fireballer, the sinker specialist needs to throw hard than 84 mph to be effective.

Since his shoulder surgery 20 months ago, Webb's velocity has been an issue. At the end of last season, he threw in some games in the Diamondbacks' complex league games, but he showed little-to-no zip on his fastball then, either.

The Rangers signed Webb to a one-year, $3 million deal in December, with performance bonuses up to $4 million for inning pitched and roster bonuses up to $1 million for days on the active roster.
