PHOENIX — Daniel Webb got to be a pitcher again Sunday.

The White Sox reliever made his first appearance since he returned to the team following a death in his family. The club excused Webb for a trip back to Paducah, Ky., where he spent a week with family members.

The right-hander stayed active while he was gone. Despite the layoff, Webb threw two bullpens. He threw another when he got back to camp on Friday.

“It’s tough, but being back here keeps my mind off it and it’s good to be back, see everybody and I’m ready to keep going,” Webb said.

The right-hander stayed active while he was gone. Despite the layoff, Webb threw two bullpens. He threw another when he got back to camp on Thursday and took the mound after two days off.

“I came back and my arm feels good, and like I said I’m happy with today,” Webb said. “I feel like I didn’t miss out on much. I threw while I was at home. My arm feels good. It’s like I never left.”
