Other Notes :


RHP Chase Webster has signed as an un-drafted free agent with the Phillies. “Webster is a big-bodied righthander with a fast, loose arm and over-the-top delivery.  His fastball sits in the 89-95 mph range, but he has questionable command and overall feel for pitching. His slider and splitter are both below-average pitches, while his curveball is well below-average.“ - Baseball America notes from 2019.   He pitched for Arizona State this past season and for Texas Tech in 2021.  He’s 22 years old and is from Gilbert, AZ  - from a fan’s view welcome to the Phillies Chase !
