Webb won the National League Cy Young in 2006 while pitching for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He went 16-8 with a 3.10 ERA. He finished second in Cy Young voting the next two seasons. In short, he was good. However, Webb's shoulder simply wouldn't allow him to pitch past the 2009 season. He underwent surgery, but it didn't seem to help.
In seven seasons with Arizona, Webb compiled an 87-62 record with a 3.27 ERA. He is 33 years old now, and no one knows what he has left. Depending on what he shows when he pitches in front of scouts, the interest level could escalate or it could fall off a cliff.
