Player Reports: Allen Webster, Mookie Betts, Garin Cecchini

I made the trek out to Pawtucket on June 9 to watch Allen Webster and the PawSox take on the rehabbing Mat Latos and the Louisville Bats, which fortunately coincided with Dollar Menu Monday at McCoy Stadium, where $15 got me a seat two rows behind home plate, a couple of dogs, and a soda.  Though I had watched video and read extensively about these minor league players, Monday represented...

Allen Webster Can Help Red Sox Bounce Back With Strong Outing Against Mariners (Video)

Allen Webster finally got the monkey off of his back. The right-hander notched his first career in at the end of June and will look to build off of that momentum Tuesday night against the Mariners. Webster will be matched up against a Mariners starting pitcher who is nearly 10 years his senior, though they both have the same amount of experience in the majors. NESN Nation’s Alison...

The Improvement of Allen Webster

    On July 4,  the 23-year-old Allen Webster finally got his first win of the season. He pitched six innings, allowing two earned runs and five hits in a win against the San Diego Padres. While Webster looked good at times, he also struggled at times in his first win.    Webster allowed one runner to reach base in five of the six innings he pitched. While he had  four strikeouts...

Boston Red Sox: Allen Webster’s audition

Allen Webster Allen Webster is in the midst of what I would call a ‘tryout’ at the moment. Today against the Padres was his 3rd straight start for the Red Sox and a telling sign that John Farrell and company want to figure out what this kid is made of before they make a decision on whether to acquire another starting arm before the deadline. Webster was acquired in the widely...

Allen Webster’s ‘Swing-and-Miss’ Tendencies Make Young Pitcher Dangerous Weapon (Video)

The results have not been there thus far for Red Sox rookie Allen Webster, but scouts and pundits alike have been raving about the right-hander’s “stuff.” Opponents have a tough time putting the bat on the ball against Webster, and that was never more apparent that during his last start against Detroit. Tigers hitters swung and missed on 23.2 percent of Webster’s pitches...

Allen Webster Gets Another Shot On Saturday

Gets A Saturday StartRed Sox pitching prospect Allen Webster (acquired in The Great Punto Trade) will get another shot at starting in The Show on Saturday. You may recall that Webster has had a bit of a schizophrenic experience in the bigs—a good six-inning stint in April; a 1 1/2 inning stinker with eight earned runs in May. The kid is generally regarded to have a huge upside...

Webster struggles, Twins blowout Sox 15-8

What started out as a promising, classic battle of offenses, turned into an absolute pitching debacle. Unfortunately, the Red Sox were on the wrong end tonight. Allen Webster was promoted from the minors again, hoping to follow up his previous encouraging start. This was also considered to be a possible test to see if he may be a suitable replacement for Felix Doubront. Everything...

Your Morning Dump...where the early returns on Allen Webster are good

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “That kid has a real good future ahead of him,” catcher David Ross said. Webster did not figure in a 5-4 loss to the Royals in the second game of last night’s doubleheader. He left with a 4-3 lead after...

Webster, who has struck out 12 in 10 innings with Pawtucket, has a history of being very wild at times. Fantasy Ramifications: Being the organization that he is in, he is certainly worth a look...

John Farrell is sucked into the Allen Webster hype, too

Allen Webster has been one of the best surprises of Spring Training, and as John Tomase points out, the Red Sox will have a decision to make about how long they'll be able to keep him in Pawtucket. He's looking big-league ready for an organization that isn't exactly burgeoning with top-flight talent. After another impressive performance scattering three hits over three...
