Ryan Webb won’t be with the Dodgers on Friday for their series opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.
In fact, the recently acquired right-handed pitcher isn’t expected to be with the Dodgers for the entire three-game series.
As for why Webb isn’t here or when he might join the Dodgers, that remains a mystery.
"I don’t know," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said.
The Dodgers confirmed Webb is on the 40-man roster but otherwise provided no information about the reliever they acquired from the Baltimore Orioles the previous day.
Asked whether Webb could be sent to the minor leagues -- he would have to clear waivers to do so -- Mattingly replied, "I don’t know all the particulars."
