Westmoreland to join Lowell, Greenville

Red Sox outfielder Ryan Westmoreland is set to continue his rehab with the Lowell Spinners and Greenville Drive in the coming weeks, according to Sox farm director Mike Hazen. The 20-year-old, who underwent surgery to repair a cavernous malformation of the brain stem in March, has been able to increase his baseball activities as his rehab has progressed, to the point where he has been running, throwing and taking some swings. Now, he is set to undertake those activities with Lowell (Aug. 31-Sept. 2) and Greenville (Sept. 3-6) before the end of the minor-leagues season, while also returning to the familiar team setting, which will include watching games from the dugout.

Cubs announce Piniella to retire Sunday
By: DJ Bean

The Cubs have announced that manager Lou Piniella, originally set to retire at the end of the season, will do so following Sunday's game against the Braves. 

 

The 66-year-old Piniella has also managed the Yankees, Reds, Mariners, and what were then the Devil Rays. He was named manager of the year three times in his career, the most recent of which came in 2008, his second season with the Cubs. His career as a manager was perhaps highlighted by the Reds' 1990 World Series victory over the Oakland Athletics. 

 

As a player Piniella won two World Series with the Yankees. He played for the Orioles, Indians, and Royals before ending up in New York to end his career. He hit .291 with 102 homers and 766 runs batted in.  

 

Third base coach Mike Quade will take over as manager of the Cubs starting on Monday. The 53-year-old has been a minor league manager in four different organizations. Before...

Report: Whitfield could miss Bruins season
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center Trent Whitfield, who spent the majority of his last season playing for Providence, has a ruptured Achilles tendon and could miss the entire year, according to SomethingsBruin.net.

 

In 52 games for the Providence Bruins, Whitfield scored 17 goals and added 26 assists. He played 16 games for Boston and had one assist. The 33-year-old likely was not in Claude Julien's plans for the upcoming season but the injury is certainly a case of losing depth at an important position.
