Brandon Webb with elbow soreness

Sadly, I'm happy about this. I'm over my max innings limit in all my leagues and I can't bring myself to bench anybody. These are my rotations

TEAM1
Brandon Webb
Scott Olsen
Jered Weaver
Eric Bedard
Felix Hernandez(I've been benching him)

TEAM2
Eric Bedard
Carlos Zambrano
Jered Weaver
Scott Olsen
Brandon Webb
Josh Johnson

TEAM3
Jered Weaver
Carlos Zambrano
Brandon Webb
Erick Bedard
Scott Kazmir(DL)

I guess I was just planning on someone getting injured long time, but I definitely have to figure out something to do. Even if Webb pitches I would be scared about pitching him, with that soreness or maybe I'm just talking myself into benching him because I need it ;-D

From rotowire
Aug 5 Webb (elbow) said he felt fine Friday after his bullpen session on Thursday, and the Diamondbacks expect him to return to action sometime next week, but they're still not sure when, the Arizona Republic reports.

Recommendation: Webb has been scratched from his scheduled start Saturday. He could be cleared to return on Monday against the Giants. However, it appears more likely that the D-Backs will let Webb skip a full turn in the rotation and allow him to return on Friday against the Marlins instead. If that's the case, the D-Backs will call up another minor league pitcher (possibly Mike Bacsik) for a spot start on Monday. According to the report, Webb's MRI revealed a flexor tendon strain, an irritating condition but one that apparently is improving daily. "(Webb) wants to pitch and feels like he can, but as long as there is soreness in there, we're going to go the extra yard to make sure he's healthy," manager Bob Melvin said.


I agree with the D-backs on this one. Better safe than sorry.
