Daniel Webb, who pitched for the Chicago White Sox from 2013-2016, died Saturday at age 28 in an ATV rollover accident.

Webb's ATV hit an object Saturday on his farm in Tennessee and rolled over on him, breaking his neck, WKRN reported. He had just gotten married a few weeks earlier and had a newborn baby with his wife.

Webb's wife and two others were also injured and hospitalized in the accident, WKRN reported.

Webb was from Paducah, Kentucky. He played for the White Sox for parts of four seasons until 2016, when he had Tommy John surgery on his elbow. The White Sox released him in November 2016 and he had not pitched professionally since then, WKRN reported.

"Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident," the team said, The Washington Post reported. "He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news."

Webb played in 94 major league games as a reliever for the White Sox, with a 7-5 record and a 4.5 ERA. He had 93 strikeouts and 69 walks in his career. Webb also played for the Blue Jays in the minor leagues prior to 2013, the Post reported.

Twitter users shared their shock and sadness at the news.
