Report: Westmoreland to join teams

Red Sox outfielder Ryan Westmoreland, who underwent brain surgery in March, is set to continue his rehab with the Lowell Spinners and Greenville Drive in the coming weeks, Sox farm director Mike Hazen told WEEI.com.

According to the report, the 20-year-old Westmoreland, who underwent surgery to repair a cavernous malformation of the brain stem, has been able to increase his baseball activities to the point where he has been running, throwing and taking some swings. He is set to do those things with Single-A Lowell of the New York Penn League (Aug. 31-Sept. 2) and Single-A Greenville of the South Atlantic League (Sept. 3-6) while also getting reacclimated to a team setting.
