More developments here in the hunt for free agent right-hander Brandon Webb.

The NL Central “mystery” team that was mentioned earlier by ESPN.com’s Jayson Stark has been identified by Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com as the Cincinnati Reds.  Rosenthal believes that Webb is now choosing between Texas and Cincinnati.

The 31-year-old righty knows Reds pitching coach Bryan Price and Cincy trainer Paul Lessard from their days together with the Diamondbacks, but he also has connections with Rangers medical director Keith Meister.

In the end, it’s going to come down to money.  Which team will offer the 31-year-old right-hander more in base salary and more in performance-based incentives?

The Yankees have also been monitoring the negotiations and could always decide to swoop in with a last-minute proposal.

Webb is expected to decide on a landing spot within the next couple of days.
