Webb 'running out of time' to avoid disabled list

Mar 11, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch admitted today that “we are running out of time” for Brandon Webb to be ready for Opening Day, with Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reporting that “it’s becoming more and more clear” that he’ll begin the season on the disabled list.
Webb hasn’t pitched since complaining of shoulder soreness on Opening Day of last season, eventually undergoing surgery in August after a series of setbacks. He threw a bullpen session last week, but said afterward that he felt “stagnant” while still insisting he’d be ready for the season. However, barring game action within the next week that seems highly unlikely.
“We’re going to need to see what he looks like next on the mound,” Hinch said. “You never know once he gets on the mound if we can speed things up as much as we slowed things down in the last week. He’s an important guy and an important ingredient to our rotation, but a healthy Brandon Webb is more important than an active Brandon Webb.”

    that’s to bad for him.
    Didn’t the team want to give him an extension, but couldn’t get insurance on his shuolder because the insurance company didn’t like the way it looked?
