Brandon Webb Hammered by Minor Leaguers

Arizona pitching coach Bryan Price thought it would be a good idea to hold out SP Brandon Webb from Wednesday's game with the Rockies to prevent the Rockies from seeing him just a few days before the two teams square off in the first game of the season. But Webb still needed his work so he was sent to minor league camp to face White Sox prospects, an easy, relaxing outing for the Diamondbacks opening day ace. Right! The Northside minor leaguers hammered Webb for eight runs, seven earned on 93 pitches.
