Add the Cubs into the mix of teams looking at free agent right-hander Brandon Webb.
Fanhouse’s Ed Price reported Saturday night
that Chicago has had contact with Webb’s agent and is “seriously” considering the former Cy Young winner.
Webb, 31, reportedly has also drawn interest from the Dodgers, Pirates, Twins and Rangers. Webb missed all of last season after undergoing shoulder surgery in 2009, but he could be a high-reward signing if healthy in 2011.
