Should I be worried, or is this a good time to buy low? Is this injury going to to limit his production over the course of this season? Does anyone have any insight? The whole situation seems very odd to me, and I am a bit perplexed.

in light of this DL stint, is anyone looking to make a play for him? everything is in place for a great buy-low opportunity... except the knowledge that he'll be healthy :*)

It has been a few days since we discussed Webb... any new thoughts on a potential buy low?

I know he is supposed to throw on Friday.... It could be a huge risk to get a deal done before tomorrow because if he comes out pain free then his price will be higher.... but if he experiences pain I could get SCREWED!

Any thoughts?

i don't think his value will be much cheaper after friday. if it goes well, the window for buying low will slam shut. if it goes poorly, it could be indicative of a larger problem, and then the risk really shoots skyward...

The sheer fact that Arizona's insurance agency advised them to withdraw the new contract offer worries me. Actuaries that are getting paid that much don't eff around.

That insurance company probably has a lot more at stake in Webb's arm than your fantasy team does. I would think that he will be fine for this year, it was a long term contract. Maybe in 4-6 years down the road he may be seeing some issues.

I have ARod stashed away on my DL (Actually traded Haren for him as soon as he went on the DL). Should I try to get Webb and let ARod go? The guy I would make the offer with is way ahead in his innings (fantasy point league) and doesn't have much depth in the hitting department.

Here is my team:
C - Sandoval
1B - Teixiera
2B - Utley
3B - Arod (DL), A.Huff
SS - Peralta, F.Lopez
OF - Ordonez, Abreu, Holliday, Ibanez, Hawpe
SP - Hamels, Oswalt, Bedard, Kershaw, Carpenter(DL), Cueto, K.Davies
RP - H.Bell, B.J.Ryan, B.Wilson

Why would you ever trade Arod now, that would totally extinguish any gains you made. In 3-6 weeks you will have a top 10 fantasy player for free.

According to the Diamondbacks official website, "D-backs right-hander Brandon Webb threw 33 pitches off the mound during a bullpen session Tuesday, the first time he has taken the mound since being placed on the disabled list with shoulder stiffness following his Opening Day start. Provided he still feels good, the next step for Webb will be another bullpen session Friday. During that one, he may try to simulate inning breaks by sitting down for five or 10 minutes after throwing 20 or so pitches. After that, the team will probably have a better read as to what the next step will be for him."
