WAVERLY, Tenn. – Daniel Webb, a former relief pitcher for the White Sox, has died in an ATV crash. He was 28.
Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis said Webb died Saturday night. Davis said Webb’s wife and two other people suffered “significant injuries” in the crash, about 70 miles west of Nashville.
Webb was 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA in 94 games for the Sox from 2013 to 2016. The right-hander pitched one inning in 2016, then had Tommy John surgery in June. He was released by the Sox after the season and had not pitched professionally during his recovery.
Webb made 57 appearances for the Sox in 2014. He pitched 110 innings in his career, striking out 93.
