Webb's future with Arizona remains hazy

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona Diamondbacks ace Brandon Webb and general manager Josh Byrnes don't want to talk about Webb's hazy future with the club.

Webb joined the rest of the Diamondbacks pitchers and catchers for their first spring workout on Sunday.

Webb wouldn't go into details on whether he will get a new contract.

The 29 year-old is under contract through the end of this season, with the Diamondbacks holding a club option for 2010. He is set to make $6.5 million in 2009 and $8.5 million in 2010, assuming the team exercises its option for the extra year.

Byrnes says that while the poor economy will play a role in how teams approach business decisions in the near future, the organization is committed to trying to keep Webb at the front of their rotation beyond 2010.
