The right-hander threw more...

    On July 4,  the 23-year-old Allen Webster finally got his first win of the season. He pitched six innings, allowing two earned runs and five hits in a win against the San Diego Padres.

Boston Red Sox: Allen Webster’s audition

Allen Webster Allen Webster is in the midst of what I would call a ‘tryout’ at the moment. Today against the Padres was his 3rd straight start for the Red Sox and a telling sign that John Farrell and company want to figure out what this kid is made of before they make a decision on whether to acquire another starting arm before the deadline.

Allen Webster’s ‘Swing-and-Miss’ Tendencies Make Young Pitcher Dangerous Weapon (Video)

Allen Webster Gets Another Shot On Saturday

Gets A Saturday StartRed Sox pitching prospect Allen Webster (acquired in The Great Punto Trade) will get another shot at starting in The Show on Saturday. You may recall that Webster has had a bit of a schizophrenic experience in the bigs—a good six-inning stint in April; a 1 1/2 inning stinker with eight earned runs in May.

John Farrell is sucked into the Allen Webster hype, too

Allen Webster has been one of the best surprises of Spring Training, and as John Tomase points out, the Red Sox will have a decision to make about how long they'll be able to keep him in Pawtucket. He's looking big-league ready for an organization that isn't exactly burgeoning with top-flight talent. After another impressive performance scattering three hits over three...
