GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The White Sox allowed reliever Daniel Webb to leave camp after a death in the family, club officials said Friday.
The right-hander, 24, left the team’s Camelback Ranch facility on Thursday to travel back to Paducah, Ky. where he resides in the offseason.
Webb, who is among the candidates to become the team’s next closer, has been cleared to take as much time as he needs.
“It’s just a family deal so we’ll kind of go by what he needs and go from there,” manager Robin Ventura said.
Webb had a 3.18 ERA in nine games for the White Sox last season, striking out 10 batters in 11 1/3 innings.
