Webb chooses Rangers

Former Diamondbacks ace Brandon Webb has decided to sign with Texas, choosing the Rangers over the bid of a mystery National League team some speculated was the Cardinals.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, according to a Fanhouse report, other than to say the deal was for one year.

The Cardinals are unlikely to spend any more significant money. But it would have been a possibility to sign Webb to very low dollar contract because he has missed all but four innings of the last two seasons due to shoulder trouble.
