Encouraging report on Westmoreland

The Red Sox received an encouraging report on the condition of Ryan Westmoreland, who underwent surgery Tuesday on a cavernous malformation on the 19-year-old prospect's brain. The team released a statement on the matter:

 

 

According to Dr. Robert Spetzler, Westmoreland’s neurosurgeon and the director of Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, Ryan has been moved out of the Intensive Care Unit and into the hospital's Neuro Rehabilitation Unit, where he will undergo physical and occupational therapy.

 

"Ryan is right on track and we expect progressive improvement," said Dr. Spetzler.

 

“We are thrilled for Ryan and his family that the surgery went so well,” said Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein. “While we recognize that the recovery process is long and complicated, we are excited that all of the early indications...

Neely: 'Where's the passion?'

Appearing on The Big Show, Bruins vice president Cam Neely relayed his frustration regarding his team, coming right out of the gate by answering Glenn Ordway's inquiry as to how he was doing by saying, "I've been better. ... I was disappointed last night." Asked what went wrong in in the B's 3-0 loss to Pittsburgh, Neely said, "I've been trying to figure that out all year, Glenn, to be honest with you. It's been very, very disappointing just to see the way our team has performed with that lack of emotion, if you will. It's something we try to instill here. I've said this for years, I said this when I played, I said this after I played, people expect their athletes to compete and show that they care, and if they don't win they're OK with that as long as they compete, show that they care and work hard. I've heard it too many times this year and I don't blame our fans...

Matsuzaka to pitch in game on Sunday

BRADENTON, Fla. -- Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, back in Fort Myers after the birth of his daughter on Tuesday night, threw a 44-pitch bullpen at City of Palms Park on Friday afternoon.

 

"He felt strong," Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell said.

 

The Red Sox now will have him throw two innings in a minor league game on Sunday. If all goes well there, he likely would be in line to make a start in a big league spring training game later next week.

Fatigued Beckett: 'I got my work in'

BRADENTON, Fla. -- Red Sox starter Josh Beckett, pitching for the first time in 11 days, was roughed up for four runs on six hits and two walks in 3-1/3 innings against the Pirates. He also struck out a batter and allowed a homer. Yet Beckett, who remained hoarse from the aftereffects of the flu, suggested that the most important number he posted on the day was positive.

 

"The numbers are obviously what they are. The most important number for me today was 70 pitches," Beckett said. "Would it be nice to go out there and shut everyone out in spring training? Yes. But the most important thing is to get your innings in, especially for me right now."

 

Beckett was scratched from a scheduled start last Sunday, remained completely bed-ridden for three of four days, could not follow his normal between-starts workout routine and admitted that he felt fatigued by the end of his outing. Despite the mid-spring...
