RHP Logan Webb, who was inactive for the last few games while dealing with side effects from his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, has been activated on Tuesday and will start against the Phillies in Philadelphia.
Webb will get the Phillies on Tuesday and is slated to face the Marlins at home on Sunday. The 24-year-old has a 4.76 ERA and 1.76 WHIP through 11 1/3 innings this year but is a steaming candidate whenever he's got a plus matchup, especially at home.
Logan Webb (COVID-19) is expected to start for the Giants on Tuesday night. Webb is on the COVID-IL with side effects from the vaccine but is reportedly feeling better and ready to start tomorrow.
Webb has been impressive this season with a 3.52 xFIP, and 2.40 K/BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings pitched. Still, in standard redraft leagues, he's only recommended as a streamer in plus matchups.
The Giants placed Logan Webb on the injured list Sunday for undisclosed reasons.
Webb received his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and is feeling some side effects. The Giants are monitoring the situation and hopeful he will be back to normal within the next few days. It is unclear if Webb will recover in time for his next start on Tuesday versus the Phillies. If Webb does make his start on Tuesday, it's a tough matchup that fantasy managers should most likely avoid.
Giants manager Gabe Kapler says RHP Logan Webb will start on Tuesday against the Phillies.
Webb will be filling in for the injured Johnny Cueto (lat). The young right-hander has showed upside dating back to spring training, but Philadelphia is a tough matchup for fantasy purposes.
RHP Logan Webb was handed a no-decision on Saturday when he allowed three runs on eight hits with six strikeouts and two walks over five innings as the Giants beat the Rockies 4-3.
Webb looked decent on Saturday vs. the Rockies, scattering eight hits while punching out six batters. He kept the Rockies off the scoreboard until the top of the fourth inning when Raimel Tapia singled in Charlie Blackmon. His biggest mistake of the night was hanging a slider over the plate against the red hot Ryan McMahon, who deposited it over the wall in center field for a two-run jack. Webb now carries a 5.25 ERA, 1.94 WHIP, and 11:5 K/BB ratio over 10 1/3 innings. He'll look to improve in his next start against the Marlins on the road.
