FORT MYERS, Fla. — On the one-year anniversary of the life-threatening brain surgery he underwent in Arizona, Ryan Westmoreland was on the field at the Red Sox player development facility taking batting practice with a group of Red Sox prospects. Given the circumstances of a year ago, when it was uncertain when or whether he would walk again while recovering from the removal of a cavernous malformation on his brain stem, the event was little short of remarkable.
“I would have liked to have done a little bit better,” Westmoreland said of his round of batting practice. “But I’ll take it.”
