Sox prospect Westmoreland 'on track'

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.

The Celtics outscored the Pacers, 35-20, in the third quarter to draw even at 77 heading into the fourth quarter. The Celtics overcame a huge game by Troy Murphy, who had 24 points and 18 rebounds. It was Boston's final home game before beginning a four-game road trip on Christmas Day in Orlando. For complete coverage, visit the Green Street blog.

NBA rescinds Sheed tech

Rasheed Wallace caught a break when he had one of his 10 technical fouls removed from the official record. On Nov. 29 in Miami, Wallace said, "and one!" after he thought he was fouled after making a basket at the end of the first quarter. He was assessed the technical by Bennett Salvatore. "He said [he would rescind] right away," Rivers said on Tuesday. "He said it at halftime that they would rescind it. He told me something I didn't know. When they rescind a tech, it still has to go to the league and it still has to be approved. They don't have to rescind it." He was rung up twice for arguing and ejected from the game against Philadelphia, a game the Celtics lost 98-97. Those two remain on the record, now giving Wallace nine for the season. An automatic suspension is levied at 16 technicals and every two technicals after. For more, visit the Greet Street blog...
