Logan Webb, one of the San Francisco Giants’ top pitching prospects has been suspended 80 games for PEDs. The substance: Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone. Which I dare you to say three times super fast.
Webb, 22, is on the Giants’ 40-man roster and is thought to have been due to hit the bigs some time next season. He posted a 2.41 ERA and 100 strikeouts over 104.2 innings last year between High-A and Double-A. So far this season he has a a 2.00 ERA and 31 strikeouts in 27 innings in five Double-A starts.
Now that development clock has been set back over half of a minor league season.
