Nice start for Marcus McBeth: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 BB, K
Pedro Viola relieves Webb and gives up a solo HR to end the no-no bid.
Webb: 6 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K...he's pitched very well since moving into the rotation.
I'd be really interested to hear where his fastball is sitting right now. Pre-surgery, I remember reading reports that he could keep it in the low-mid 90s. If he's retained velocity at 90 MPH without going to max-effort, he has a chance to really make something of himself on the comeback trail.

Bruce definitely doesn't need to be challenged in AA right now. Maybe by July/Augest if he continues to improve.
Maybin walks a bit more. Jay Bruce is a complete hitter though and as far as swinging the bat goes, they aren't even comparable.
Bruce had an impressive 06 because of what he did it as a teenager in the Midwest League. He needs to spend at least the first half with Sarasota before they consider moving him.
