Listen to your team news NOW.

NBC Sports Bay Area’s Alex Pavlovic has the details on Webb’s promotion.

The Giants visit Arizona at 5:10 pm on Saturday for the second of a four-game set.

Webb, 22, was the team’s fourth-round pick back in 2014. During his truncated 2019 season Webb has spent time at four Giants’ affiliates, beginning with Arizona Rookie League Giants. Most recently, Webb spun seven innings of one-run ball for Triple-A Sacramento.

On May 1, Webb drew an 80-game suspension after testing positive for the performance-enhancing drug dehydrochlormethyltestosterone.

MLB.com ranks Webb the No. 5 prospect in the farm system, first among all Giants’ pitchers.
