The continuing saga of Brandon Webb continued on the journey that began on Opening Day 2009 when he suffered an arm injury. The injury was with his pitching shoulder and after a lengthy rehabilitation schedule Webb succumbed to season ending surgery.
Webb and his representatives described the surgery as minor. Terms such as “slight clean up” and “quick recovery” were bantered about. The Diamondbacks felt confident Webb would return to his dominating self in time to help the team for the 2010 season.
