ATLANTA — The Red Sox announced this afternoon that Curt Schilling will be put on the 15-day disabled list, and that Josh Beckett will move up in the rotation to pitch Sunday (he’ll have his normal rest).
Schilling, who had an MRI on his pitching shoulder yesterday that turned up normal, said this morning in a radio interview on WEEI that he received a cortisone shot yesterday. He also said he thought “a little touch of tendinitis” was contributing to his problems.
“We got injected yesterday and there’s a period of time here we have to let it sink in, cool down, and then we go,” Schilling said. “I’m not exactly sure what day that is. I haven’t heard from the doctors yet but I’m guessing it’s Friday or Saturday. And then we go from there.”
Julian Tavarez will pitch Monday in Seattle. A TBA in the rotation would come up Tuesday in Seattle. That happens to be Jon Lester’s day to pitch as well.
More news on this matter coming soon.
