Westmoreland in the house

4/4/2010

Red Sox prospect Ryan Westmoreland, the 19-year-old Rhode Island native who underwent five hours of brain surgery March 16, was at Fenway Park for Sunday night's home opener, seated in the organization's luxury box.

He was shown on the NESN broadcast.

A club source said Sunday that Westmoreland, with the assistance of a wheelchair, was also able to attend a Padres spring training game. Padres assistant GM Jason McLeod was the Sox scouting director who drafted Westmoreland on the sixth round in 2008, and said the outfielder had more upside than any player he had drafted in five years as Sox scouting director.
