Pitching is scarce in Florida in both the four-year colleges and prep ranks, but not at the junior college level. There's real depth, with the biggest name being righthander Daniel Webb. He performed well in showcases and entered 2008 as one of the nation's top prep arms, but he hasn't been able to build on that in the last two years. He hasn't shown he can consistently get hitters out, either at the Kentucky high school level or in Florida's juco ranks. He looked ordinary at Northwest Florida State JC (formerly Okaloosa-Walton) despite having a big-time arm. He doesn't repeat his delivery and doesn't throw enough strikes with his 88-92 mph fastball, which touches 94. The pitch shows less movement than it did on the showcase circuit in 2007. He improved the movement on his slurvy breaking ball and throws his changeup more often than he did in high school, so he has made some progress. He struggles with his command and rarely throws the breaker for strikes. An unsigned 12th-rounder last year, Webb may go in about the same range this year. No one expects him back at Northwest Florida State, but scouts didn't have a good read on his signability. If he doesn't sign, he's likely to look for a different junior college.
