His hip might be injured. He got hit with a ball I believe but I missed that part of the game.

Just saw the replay. He was hit by a liner from Delgado. It was probably the hardest hit ball Delgado has hit all year.

Yeah, he was drilled by Delgado which is most likely why they yanked him.

It was kinda wierd how O-Dog yelled about five times over to Delgado "That's F'in BS," without the PG version. Like Delgado was trying to do that or something lol. I think Webby will be just fine.

According to both Melvin and Webb, the reason he was removed after throwing just 58 pitches was not because he was injured.

"He felt it a little bit, but at that point, the way we had been riding him, I didn't want to run him out there for two more innings and get his pitch count up," Melvin said. "And innings-wise, he's pitched quite a bit for us. Just wanted to give him a little blow."

"I think it'll be all right tomorrow," Webb said. "It'll be a little bit sore. It just kind of skimmed off my side or hip or whatever. It hurt as soon as it did it, but it kind of subsided pretty quickly. [Melvin] came up to me and said, 'I just want to give you a breather, a quick game.'"

Webb did say that since his start May 26 against the Braves, he's noticed his velocity fluctuating.

"Even in the last couple of games, it's been down a little bit, but periodically it seems like it would come back," said Webb. "I don't know. My arm feels fine. My arm feels great. It was a good time to give me a little bit of a rest, and hopefully next time, come out and be ready to go eight or nine again. It doesn't hurt. Maybe a dead-arm period or something like that. Everything feels good."

Odd, I actually thought his start before last night (so on the 7th or so), he had great velocity. He was touching 91, which he usually doesn't do...he's always been in the 86-90 mph range w/ that sinker, most often hitting like 88.

Rotoworld is reporting a case of dead arm, which would explain the velocity drop. here's their post.

Brandon Webb has experienced decreased velocity recently and said Wednesday that he may be going through a "dead arm" period.
Webb was pulled from his start Wednesday after just five innings, with manager Bob Melvin saying afterward that he "just wanted to give him a little blow." Webb's fastball was clocked at 85-89 mph Wednesday and his next scheduled start will come Tuesday against the A's.


I'd expect the D-backs to take it easy on him next start as well, or even an extra day off if they can be lucky enough to get a rain out in the next few days. Regardless he's still a must start and it's not time to worry

Here's an article on the hip, looks like that is fine at least.
