Webb feels good after game of catch

Right from the start, Brandon Webb knew something was different.

The D-backs ace right-hander realized early in his session of catch Friday that his shoulder was not going to give him problems. Webb has been bothered by stiffness in the shoulder since the end of Spring Training and was placed on the disabled this past week.
“I was a little apprehensive letting it go off the bat,” Webb said. “But as soon as I started throwing I was like this feels totally different than what it did so I knew then that it was going to feel good.”

So good, in fact that Webb asked head athletic trainer Ken Crenshaw if he could extend the session a bit. Webb threw for around 10 minutes from 70-75 feet.

“It felt good so I guess we’ll play catch every day now and then hopefully sneak a flat ground in there on Sunday and we’ll just play it by ear, see how I progress each day,” Webb said.

One thing that is certain is that Webb will not pitch Tuesday. Instead, Yusmeiro Petit will get the starting nod.
