The Atlanta Braves moved reliever Jacob Webb to the 60-day injury list as his right elbow continues to ail, and he likely is out for the season.

Webb, 26, went on the 10-day IL on July 13 with an elbow impingement.

In an attempt to return this season, Webb began a rehab stint at Triple-A Gwinnett on July 31. He pitched in 10 games, surrendering eight runs in 10 1/3 innings with 12 strikeouts and nine walks.

Before the injury, the righty was 4-0 with a 1.39 ERA in 36 games for Atlanta. He also has two saves.
