Reporter: Jason Barr, Sports Director
PHOENIX (KGUN9-TV) Web hasn't pitched in the majors since 2009 because of shoulder problems. He had been pursuing another comeback attempt but announced his retirement Monday in a statement released by agents Jonathan Maurer and Mike Montana.
"With retirement, Brandon looks forward to focusing on more time with his family,'' the statement said. "He would like to thank all the countless coaches, players and friends for their support during his career.''
Webb, a University of Kentucky product, made three All-Star teams and averaged 227 innings a season with the Diamondbacks from 2004 through 2008. He won the NL Cy Young Award with a 16-8 record and a 3.10 ERA in 2006.
