PEORIA, Ariz. -- Left-hander Travis Webb threw live batting practice to hitters for the first time on Tuesday and was to discuss with Brewers coaches on Wednesday the next step. It could be pitching in a game.
Webb, a non-roster invitee who is new to the organization, has been brought along very slowly because of a muscle strain behind his left shoulder.
"I feel great," Webb said. "I'm going to go out and throw and just see where I'm at. I really want to be out there. I feel like this is an important time for me. But again, I want to make sure that I'm ready to go."
Webb said he no longer feels any discomfort in that muscle.
