Webster enters his first season with the Somerset Patriots and first in the Atlantic League. The 6’5” righty spent parts of his first four professional seasons with the Schaumburg Boomers (Frontier League). Over his four seasons there, Webster went 22-15 in 51 starts with a combined 3.28 ERA.
In 2015, Webster made one start for the Boomers before the Atlanta Braves purchased his contract. The Alexandria, Louisiana native went on to go 8-7 with a 2.82 ERA with High-A Carolina that season. Additionally, Webster yielded just eight total walks in 130.2 innings of work that season and was later named a 2015 Atlanta Braves organizational all-star.
Webster’s calling card over his career has been his low walk ratios. The side-armer has never walked more than 24 batters in a full season, and owns a career 1.3 BB/9 (walk-per-nine innings) ratio. Last year in Schaumburg, Webster walked just 20 batters and finished third in the league in strikeouts (108) and innings pitched (126.2).
The Nicholls State University alumnus owns a career 30-23 record with a 3.23 ERA, 356 strikeouts and just 68 walks over 462.1 innings pitched.
Webster’s rights were acquired by the Somerset Patriots in a trade with the Boomers earlier in the off-season for future considerations.
