A First Look at Ryan Webb

Yesterday the Orioles made the signing of right-handed relief pitcher Ryan Webb official, after Webb passed his physical.  Webb signed a 2-year, $4.5 million contract with the team.  Other than the Jim Johnson trade and signing a bunch of AAAA players (guys who are too good for AAA, but not good enough to be a major league regular), the signing of Webb has been the most significant addition for Baltimore so far this offseason, which seems to be leaving most of the Baltimore fan base a little restless as numerous free agents are off the board and the winter meetings are beginning to wind down.  Since Webb has played his entire major league career in San Diego and Miami, most of you have probably never seen him pitch.  With that in mind, I am providing a first look of Ryan Webb over at ESPN Swetspot Network Orioles blog, Camden Depot.  He may be their first “major” free agent signing, but hopefully he’s not their last as the team has multiple holes to fill.
