Allen Webster roughed up in second consecutive outing

Allen Webster was hit hard for the second consecutive outing, taking the loss against the Reds during "Will Ferrell Day" in the Cactus League. Webster allowed seven hits and walked one while giving up four runs in 2 2/3 innings. Arizona acquired Webster (among others) in the trade that sent Wade Miley to the Red Sox in December. In 2014, the (then) 24-year-old prospect started 11 games for the Red Sox, pitching to an ERA of 5.03 with an unfortunate 36/28 K/BB ratio. (Nick Piecoro)

Fantasy Impact:

Webster has not helped his cause in trying to make the Diamondbacks starting rotation with two poor outings to start the spring. Despite the rough performances over parts of two major league seasons, scouting reports have cited his top-of-the-rotation stuff and the Diamondbacks are/were hoping he would be able to be plugged into the rotation at the start of 2015.
