Congratulations to Ryan Westmoreland, who was recently named SoxProspects.com player of the month for July. SoxProspects.com picks the player who they believe performed the best in the entire Red Sox minor league system when they name their player of the month.
Ryan had a hot month of July, hitting .306 with 6 HR’s, 18 RBI’s and 8 SB’s. Westmoreland also posted a .395 OBP and a .966 OPS for the month.
Westmoreland has yet to play the outfield after his surgery this past offseason and has been acting as the Spinners DH. Westmoreland was drafted by the Red Sox in the 5th round of the 2008 MLB Draft out of Portsmouth (RI) High School. Westmoreland is regarded as one of the top prospects in the Red Sox system and has been showing why he is generally thought of as a five tool prospect. Congraulations Ryan on the award and your continued success.
