“I haven’t retired yet,” Webb said. “But, I did stop throwing a couple months ago, so I don’t know. I may pick up a ball this winter just to see where I’m at and go from there, but nothing as of right now. I’m just kind of hanging out. Nothing finalized yet.”
Webb was doing the chat in advance of the Diamondbacks’ first-ever Alumni Game at Chase Field on Saturday. He still isn’t sure whether he’ll try pitching in the game.
“As of right now, I don’t know if I can, with my arm,” he said. “I’m going to go to the workout on Saturday and see how that goes. I know everyone is going to ask that and some of the guys are asking. It’s still up in the air. But if not, I’m going to manage. Assistant skipper, you can say.”
Pitching for Arizona, Webb finished first, second and second in the NL Cy Young balloting from 2006-08, but he injured his shoulder in his first start of the 2009 season and hasn’t appeared in a major league game since. He struggled in the minors after signing with the Rangers last year and had his most recent shoulder operation on his rotator cuff last August.
