Returning from a two-day absence with the latest links and notes from around Kentucky baseball:

  • Andrew Pentis of MLB.com reports the earliest Ashland native and former UK right-handed pitcher Brandon Webb will pitch in a MLB game is Tuesday in San Francisco.
  • Steve Gilbert and Pentis report Webb will meet with new Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers on Monday to determine if he approves of the former ace pitching in a game this season.
  • Former UK right-handed pitcher Joe Blanton and the Phillies, and the Cincinnati Reds could each clinch their respective divisions with wins and losses from Atlanta and St. Louis today.
  • PLD alum A. J. Ellis is turning heads in Los Angeles with a .478 batting average in 10 games since being recalled when rosters expanded in September. Ellis is 11-23 in that span.
