It was believed that a deal was just about done then, so this explanation for the breakdown makes a lot of sense. Sources told Rosenthal that Webb passed a physical administered by the team, but that multiple insurance companies "raised concerns" when asked to cover the agreement.

Well, this is encouraging at least... published yesterday afternoon:

For the first time, Webb revealed in an interview with MLB.com that he saw noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews and that Andrews told him as long as he continues his strengthening program he was at no greater risk than any other pitcher of developing a shoulder problem.

The examination took place in December after baseball's Winter Meetings. Webb's agents talked with D-backs officials at the meetings, and when it became clear that extension talks were not going to restart, Webb asked to visit Andrews.

"I just wanted to put my own mind at ease," Webb said. "The doctors that we had talked to said my shoulder was fine, but I just wanted to make sure, so I went and saw Dr. Andrews. He told me that my shoulder looked like a typical pitcher's shoulder and that I should not be worried as long as I kept up my workouts."

Not that it's the same thing, but my doctor told me that same thing about my serving shoulder when it was coming out of the socket twice each month. The doc even compared the state of my shoulder to that of a pitcher. When your shoulder looks "like a typical pitcher's shoulder," that means it's mangled and messed up. The question is whether or not it's still working in that state.

I've sense undergone strengthening, and it's no longer a problem. But if I were to get an exam today like what he had, I'd probably get the same review - and my shoulder could go right back to being a big pile of suck at any moment.

Owners in a few of my leagues have already put him on the block. The price is still high (re: on par with actual value) but if it can be discounted any further, I think a bargain could be had here...

Good news from Rotoworld.

The MRI for Brandon Webb (shoulder) came back clean, according to manager Bob Melvin.
The MRI was said to be precautionary, and it appears the discomfort in Webb's shoulder was muscular, not structural. There’s hope that Webb will be able to return to the rotation on Friday in San Francisco, which would be a welcome sight for both Webb owners and Arizona

There is no structural damage in the shoulder. He does have a small case of tendinitis and bursitis. It may bother him a bit now, but with a little rest (which he has gotten) it should be fine. Everything to this point including the Dr. Andrew's visit has been purely precautionary. I have him and I am in no way trading him.

Per Rotoworld:
The Diamondbacks have reportedly placed Brandon Webb on the disabled list after he still felt some soreness playing catch on Sunday.
Webb had hoped to pitch Friday, but Yusmeiro Petit will make at least one more start in his place. He will be eligible to return in 10 days.

Not good! :-t
