Brandon Webb was happy with his pitching performance today. Not on the mound facing live hitters, mind you, but the 50 to 60 pitches he threw in the cage under the stands in what he called a bullpen session.
"Good, good. Real good. I think this might the best one including San Francisco. It was good," Webb said.
Webb said he was able to slow things down and focus on his mechanics and the result was excellent movement on his sinker.
"I started throwing from just the power position today when I very first started throwing. Very simple, you just lift your leg up and go... Breaks it down really simple. Start from there and things were good from that," he said.
"It was the best I've had by far. I was like, 'this is nasty.' It was moving pretty good. Location was really good. I threw a lot of strikes."
Webb also threw some curveballs that he said were also working for him.
Asked if he was still planning to pitch this season Webb remained confident.
"I hope so, I don't know," he said. "Like I said, if I can make it one time it would be great. Anything else would be extra so I'm still planning on getting some kind of action."
