Boston Red Sox SP Allen Webster is 3-3 with a 2.94 ERA and 62 strikeouts in 79 2/3 innings at Triple-A Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Webster is on the fringe right now and would need an injury or a pitcher like Brandon Workman to melt down in order to have a place in the rotation.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said the team hasn't made a decision on who will replace SP Felix Doubront (shoulder) in the starting rotation, but SPs Allen Webster and Brandon Workman are both possibilities.
Fantasy Tip: Webster is the more intriguing fantasy name. All AL-only managers looking for another arm should be looking to acquire Webster off the waiver wire if he's called up.

Boston Red Sox SP Allen Webster was schooled in a video session of his mechanics by SPs Jon Lester and John Lackey after he allowed three runs in his first spring start. After making a tweak to his delivery, Webster rebounded by tossing three scoreless innings Wednesday, March 5. "We looked at a little video, and they saw me drifting forward," Webster said, "and they pulled me aside and told me to stay back over the rubber and get more angle, more downhill to the plate. It's mainly right before I throw the ball. I pull sideways instead of pull down, and I get alongside the ball and tug the ball to the side or sail it up and away."

Boston Red Sox SP Allen Webster and P Alfredo Aceves have been demoted to the minors. In related moves, the team has called up RPs Steven Wright and Pedro Beato.
Fantasy Tip: Webster has electric stuff, but he has struggled with his command. He'll be good eventually, but he's not on mixed-league radars yet.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell announced Tuesday, June 25, that SP Allen Webster will get another chance to start, working Friday, June 28, against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Fantasy Tip: Webster will be making his fourth start of the season, and so far the results haven't been good. He is 0-2 with an 11.25 ERA in three starts, so only those absolutely desperate for pitching help in deep, deep AL-only leagues need to bother with Webster for fantasy purposes.
