Top Red Sox prospect Ryan Westmoreland is scheduled to undergo brain surgery to remove a cavernous malformation on Tuesday.
I'm not a doctor, so I won't comment on the medical side of things other than to say anything involving brain surgery is inherently frightening. Good luck to Ryan on a successful surgery and speedy recovery. This is a huge blow to the Sox system, but far more than that, to the life of a 19-year-old just a year and a half out of high school.
