Westmoreland attends home opener

Westmoreland attends home opener

BOSTON -- Top Red Sox prospect Ryan Westmoreland, who underwent surgery last month to repair a cavernous malformation in his brain, attended Sunday night's contest.

In fact, Westmoreland, who was accompanied by his parents, was in manager Terry Francona's office before the game and was visited by some of the Red Sox players, including second baseman Dustin Pedroia.

Westmoreland, who is 19, hails from Portsmouth, R.I.

At the request of the Westmoreland family, the Red Sox haven't been giving many updates on the outfielder's recovery. The most recent update issued by the club was on March 18, when it was revealed that Westmoreland was released from the intensive care unit of St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Arizona.

At that time, Dr. Robert Spetzle, who performed the surgery, said that "Ryan is right on track and we expect progressive improvement."
