Murphy in San Diego; Gabbard on tap for Seattle

Outfielder David Murphy will be added to the Red Sox roster when they officially place Curt Schilling on the 15-day disabled list later today. Murphy will be available to play tonight against the Padres and for the rest of the weekend series, and could accompany the club to Seattle for the first game there against the Mariners Monday night.

The Sox have settled on lefthander Kason Gabbard to take Schilling’s spot in the rotation on Tuesday, a source said.

Tuesday is also Jon Lester’s scheduled day to pitch for Triple-A Pawtucket.
