Scouting Report
: Local product was one of the top New England high school players in 2008.  A true five-tool talent with tremendous upside. Sturdy, athletic build with the ability to add strength.  Open stance. Keeps his hands high around his helmet and goes into a bit of a crouch as the ball approaches. Smooth and quick swing. Patient and selective - waits for his pitch. Above average power potential with a terrific approach. Hits to all fields.  Elite speed with excellent base-running skills. Strong arm with excellent outfield range. Very intelligent.  Passed up a full ride at Vanderbilt to sign with the Sox.  Also a great pitcher in high school, he pitched a perfect game in April 2008, striking out 19 of 21 batters. Had surgery on a partially torn labrum in November 2008. Missed the end of the 2009 season with a broken collarbone after running into an outfield wall. In March 2010, Westmoreland underwent surgery to remove a cavernous malformation from his brain stem, and at this point there has been no official word when and if he will return to baseball.
