Webb, who had surgery on his shoulder in August, will rest for a few days before resuming activity.

"Hopefully that will get me over the hump," Webb told MLB.com.

Webb, who will start the season on the disabled list, has no announced timetable for a bullpen session, let alone a game appearance.

"It never hurt," Webb told MLB.com. "It doesn't feel great, but it doesn't hurt bad. I still feel like I can't let it go. I still feel like I'm not ready to get on the mound yet. I can't take it to the mound."

Webb started on Opening Day last season and went four innings. It was the only game action he saw last season.
