The Oakland A's continued building their impressive pitching staff with another blue chipper - Brandon Webb with the third pick in the draft. Brandon, born and raised in Ashland, Kentucky, attended the University of Kentucky.
Last season with the Double A El Paso Diablos of the Texas League, Brandon compiled a 10-6 record with a 3.14 ERA in 152 innings. Webb was then promoted to the Triple A Tuscon Sidewinders late last season.
Webb continues to live in Ashland, Kentucky and is looking forward to joining the A's formidable starting staff. . .
