Man, Allen Webster starts tonight for the Diamondbacks against the Dodgers. Remember him?
Diamondbacks pitchers have been throwing two-seam fastballs more often this season. The Arizona Republic notes that D-backs starters have gone from throwing the pitch 11 percent of the time last year to 31 percent this season. Allen Webster has dramatically increased his usage of the pitch. He’s gone from employing it a modest 16 percent of the time last season to 51 percent of...
Allen Webster was a bit nervous making his Diamondbacks debut, and it showed when the Arizona right-hander walked two of the first four batters he faced.
A quick pep talk from longtime friend and catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia was all it took to settle him down.
Webster pitched into the sixth inning, Paul Goldschmidt had two hits and an RBI and the Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco...

Allen Webster turned in a gem in his final 2014 audition for the Boston Red Sox.

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 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...
Allen Webster will start for the Boston Red Sox in Saturday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.
The 23-year-old starter is 3-2 with a 5.87 earned run average, 18 strikeouts and 20 walks. Webster will look to bounce back from his previous outing, when he gave six earned runs in a loss to the Seattle Mariners.

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...
