San Francisco Giants fans had a right to be concerned when starting pitcher Logan Webb seemed to tweak his ankle while covering first base during Friday night's game. The good news is that the team believes the injury to be minor in that Webb will not be forced to miss any upcoming starts.

Logan Webb Injury Update

The Giants have mentioned that they plan to monitor Webb's workload between starts in order to keep him fresh this season. However, the 25-year-old still pitched three additional frames after suffering this injury. That shows that it did not have a major impact on his delivery on the mound.

Webb is expected to be fully prepared for his next start against the San Diego Padres on Wednesday, April 13. Avoiding a stint of the injured list is easily the best case scenario here. San Francisco needs their ace healthy if it wants any chance of keeping up with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.

Webb is coming off a breakout 2021 season in which he finished 11-3 with a 3.03 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. He also struck out 158 batters over 148.1 innings pitched and was the team's most reliable starter down the stretch. In fact, Webb gave up just 1 earned run across 14.2 innings pitched in the playoffs.

The efforts of Webb will go a long way in determining whether or not the Giants have a legitimate chance to win their first World Series title since 2014. San Francisco has odds to win the 2022 World Series set at +2500 to accomplish that goal, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
