Westmoreland to have brain surgery

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Top Red Sox prospect Ryan Westmoreland has been diagnosed with a cavernous malformation in his brain (click here for an explanation of the condition) and has taken medical leave from minor league camp to seek treatment. The 19-year-old Westmoreland left minor league camp on March 4.

Perkins: Cavs better without Shaq

Kendrick Perkins believes the Cavaliers are a better team without Shaquille O'Neal, who has been sidelined since spraining his thumb against the Celtics on February 25. “In my opinion, I think they’re better,” Perkins said after practice on Saturday. “They can run more, you’ve got Anderson Varejao who’s more of an active body, he gets LeBron open a lot, opens up the paint for him, so I think they’re a better team. I mean obviously Shaq could help them, but I think they’re a better, more fast-paced team.” The Celtics will play the Cavs on Sunday in Cleveland. Visit the Green Street Blog for more.

Bogar: Lowell 'a natural' at first

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Speaking prior to the Red Sox' spring training game against the Pirates at City of Palms Park, third base/infield coach Tim Bogar said that after working with Mike Lowell for the past few weeks, he has no concerns when Lowell plays first base in the infielder's initial spring training game of the season, Monday against Baltimore. “He’s fine. That transition’s not a problem for him,” Bogar said. “His big thing was working on picking balls in the dirt and footwork stuff. We did that a couple of days. He’s a natural at it. Great hands. Two days we’ve hit him buckets of balls at first base with low throws and stuff. He’s just professional. We had to talk about a couple of technique things, ways he likes to do things and way he doesn’t but other than that he took right to it.”

Buchholz takes another step forward

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz turned in three solid innings against the Pirates, Saturday at City of Palms Park, allowing just one hit while throwing 17 of his 28 pitches for strikes. Buchholz, who was making his second outing of spring training, struck out two and walked one. In his first outing of the spring Buchholz had allowed three runs on five hits to Baltimore.

 

"That's the least of my worries right now," Buchholz said regarding worrying about how Matsuzaka's set-back would affect the organization of the pitching staff. "I want to be on this team for the duration of the season. Two and a half months isn't going to mean that much if something happens that I don't do my job and end up in the same spot as last year. I'm going to keep working regardless how many starters there are in line right now and just do the stuff I have to do. Like I said a million times things will take care of themselves...
