Red Sox prospect Ryan Westmoreland is "right on track" in his recovery from season-ending surgery to repair a broken clavicle that was incurred when the outfielder ran into a wall for Single-A Lowell, according to Sox farm director Mike Hazen. The 19-year-old, rated the team's top prospect by several publications (including Baseball Prospetus and SoxProspects.com), has been able to follow a fairly typical offseason strength and conditioning program. He will begin swinging a bat in January, which would leave him on track to begin 2010 with a full-season affiliate, likely Single-A Greenville.
Westmoreland hit .296 with a .401 OBP, .484 slugging percentage, .885 OPS, seven homers, 35 RBIs and 19 steals (without getting caught) for the Spinners in 2009. The Rhode Island native is considered a five-tool talent.
