Goodbye to Allen Webster

Along with Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster was the first of the “prospect hurlers” to be dealt away by the Sox. Obtained from the Dodgers in the 2012 megatrade, Webster pitched well at Pawtucket the last two years but was wildly inconsistent at the big league level. Nearly everyone who saw Webster pitch was impressed by his stuff. Signed by LA in 08, the 24-year-old pitched...

Allen Webster’s Confidence Growing With Each Major League Start (Video)

Sometimes, all you can ask for is a little improvement, and that’s exactly what the Boston Red Sox got from starter Allen Webster. The 24-year-old right-hander’s 5.54 ERA is nothing to call home about, but Webster has come a long way from his performances at the beginning of the season. Webster has been visibly more confident on the mound, and the Red Sox have won his last three...

Allen Webster Credits Good Mechanics In Win Over Kansas City (Video)

Allen Webster earned his first win since Aug. 14 against the Kansas City Royals on Friday night, and he had a good bullpen session before the game to thank for it. “I was warming up in the bullpen, and from there, I just felt really good with my mechanics,” Webster said. “I just started attacking the zone and took it out to the game, and from there, I still felt good with my...

Red Sox May Delay Victorino, Bring Up Pitcher

Webster (Getty Images)Having endured back-to-back putrid starting pitching performances (Clay Buchholz, Jon Letser), the Red Sox are a little thin in the bullpen. Because of that, they may delay today's expected activation of Shane Victorinio in favor of short-term promotion of a pitcher from AAA Pawtucket. The likely candidates for advancement to The Show are: Allen Webster or Alex...

45 Prospects in 45 Days: Boston’s Allen Webster

Profile Allen Webster can bring the heat. In his short major league stint with the Red Sox last season, he averaged 94.4 miles per hour on his fastball, a velocity that would have ranked seventh among starting pitchers, if he’d had enough innings to qualify. His control is bad, verging on terrible, but that fastball will play on any level. Based on last year’s big league sample...
