DALLAS (Sports Network) – The Texas Rangers are reportedly on the verge of signing starter Brandon Webb.

The Morning News reported late Sunday afternoon, quoting several sources, that the 31-year-old, who has not taken the mound since April 2009 due to persistent shoulder problems, has a tentative agreement to join the club with a one-year deal.

In his last full season, 2008 with Arizona, the right-hander finished with an NL-best 22 wins against seven losses with a 3.30 earned-run average in 34 starts. He was second in the Cy Young voting and represented the Senior Circuit as an All-Star.

Webb won the NL Cy Young in 2006 after going 16-8 with a 3.10 ERA in 33 turns with the Diamondbacks, and followed that with an 18-10 season in 2007.

Over seven major-league seasons, all with the Diamondbacks, the Kentucky native and eighth-round pick of Arizona in the 2000 amateur draft has compiled an 87-62 mark and 3.27 ERA in 199 games, all but one of those starts.
