Logan Webb News
San Francisco Giants right-hander Logan Webb will no longer start the season finale on Sunday against the division-rival Los Angeles Dodgers. The Giants were considering giving him one more start to try and chase down Padres left-hander Blake Snell in the National League Cy Young race. Instead, left-handed rookie Kyle Harrison (illness) is lined up to face the Dodgers on Sunday. The 26-year-old Webb was solid again in 2023 with a 3.25 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 194 strikeouts in 216 innings over 33 starts for the Gigantes. Harrison was scratched due to an illness on Tuesday against the Padres, but he's feeling better now and will make one more start this year. The 22-year-old southpaw has struggled in his first six major-league starts, posting a 4.85 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, nine walks and 31 strikeouts in 29 2/3 frames.
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Logan Webb was excellent in Monday's 2-1 win over the Padres. Webb pitched a complete game, allowing a single run on nine hits and no walks with seven strikeouts. In a season where starting pitching was so volatile, the 26-year-old has been the definition of consistency. He is now 11-13 with a 3.25 ERA, 8.08 K/9 rate, and 1.29 BB/9 rate. He is currently slated for one more matchup against the Dodgers to end the season. While this is not a favorable matchup, fantasy managers should trust him to try to gain any final advantage they can get.
San Francisco Giants pitcher Logan Webb will look to dominate for his second straight start Thursday when he takes the ball in Colorado against the Rockies. Webb dominated this same Rockies offense his last time out with six innings of shutout ball while allowing just three hits and one walk against four strikeouts in San Francisco. He has once again been a reliable arm for fantasy managers this season, working to a 3.40 ERA across 30 starts and a hearty 193 innings of work. He doesn't generate a ton of strikeouts with a middling 23.2% K% but the 26-year-old's 3.8% BB% is the third-best mark in baseball among qualified starters, leading to a quality 19.4% K-BB% on the campaign.
It was another solid season for the Giants' young righty, as he put up a 3.18 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP. The bad news was that his strikeout rate dropped nearly six full points down to 20.7%. The SwStr% also dropped two points down to 11.4%, below league average. This is all pretty concerning, as we were really hoping Webb could stick to his ways of being a high GB% pitcher (he did this) while maintaining an above-average strikeout rate, something which not many pitchers are able to do. The silver lining here is that Webb has the stuff to do a lot of different things. The strikeout rate decrease last year was probably the result of him ditching his four-seam fastball in favor of the sinker (he used that pitch 33% of the time and did not get many whiffs at all on the pitch). If he stays a sinkerballer primarily, he will fail again in strikeout rate - but it does come with the benefit of the high ground ball rate that helps with ERA so much. He also has a strong slider and changeup combination to use, so there's some hope here that he can return to a good strikeout rate. All things considered, Webb is a high-floor, but low-ceiling pick for 2023 at his ADP around 110.
