Richard Durrett of ESPNDallas.com reports that Brandon Webb was “sore” following an eight-minute bullpen session yesterday, which is to be expected from a pitcher who hasn’t seen game action since Opening Day of 2009 because of shoulder problems.

For now the Rangers are planning to have him throw every three days–rather than the standard every-other-day schedule for most pitchers in camp–which means he’ll take the mound again Sunday barring any setbacks.

As pitching coach Mike Maddux explained: “This is a guy that hasn’t thrown for two years. We don’t want to put the cart before the horse with him. We’re going to take our time. We have to build some strength.”

There’s no timetable yet for when Webb will begin facing live hitters or advance to game action, but the Rangers are still hopeful that he’ll be ready for Opening Day after signing Webb to an incentive-laden one-year contract that guarantees the former Cy Young winner $3 million.
