ALLEN WEBSTER RUMORS

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...

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Allen Webster forever will be linked to a defining moment in Boston Red Sox history, regardless of whether he throws another pitch at the major league level.

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.

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.

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.
