Logan Webb is ranked as the #5 prospect in the Giants system, according to MLB.com.  However Wednesday he was sat down for 80 games by MLB for the violation of the league's PED Policy.

Webb said in a statement released by the Giants:“I have done research, I have talked to people who know a lot more about it than I do, and I have sent in an endless amount of supplements and products for testing that I have used over the past couple years” “Unfortunately, none of those things have helped me find that answer, and the time for me to find the reason that this has happened has run out. I know in my heart that something someday will be put into the world to prove my innocence.”

Webb has 31 K's in 27 innings and carries a 2.00ERA.

“The San Francisco Giants are disappointed that Logan Webb has violated the terms of Major League Baseball’s Drug Prevention and Treatment Program resulting in his suspension,” the statement read. “The Giants organization fully supports the MLB program and its efforts to eliminate performance-enhancing substances from our game.”
