Schilling done?

Postby brewcrewreview.com » Thu Feb 07, 2008 4:53 pm

"The Boston Herald reports that Curt Schilling may need surgery for what's likely either a rotator cuff or labrum injury.

Schilling is done after this year, so we don't see why he'd undergo surgery. Unless he's reconsidering and wants to extend his career beyond 2008, then he'll have to try to pitch through the problem. According to the Herald, the Red Sox are already exploring the possibility of voiding Schilling's contract. They could decide to make a run at Kyle Lohse or take a flier on Bartolo Colon or Freddy Garcia if they don't think Schilling will make it back.

NOTE: I accidentally posted a thread on the same topic at the same time as you, Brew. I deleted the thread and appended it here.

DC_Commish wrote:According to reports in the Boston Globe and Boston Herald, Curt Schilling has a shoulder injury that will cause him to miss the start of spring training. The Globe described the problem as "more serious than the ones that caused the club to shut him down for seven weeks last season." Apparently, Schilling's doctor is recommending surgery, while the team is pushing for a non-surgical rehab stint. The Herald reports that the Red Sox tried to void Schilling's one-year $8M contract.

If the injury is serious, I have to believe it significantly elevates the value of Clay Buchholz. After Beckett, Matsuzaka, Schillling, Lester, and Wakefield, Buchholz is the obvious sixth man, so I would expect to see him back in the majors to start the season.


As noted in this thread, the Red Sox have made a concerted effort to keep Buchholz's workload down, so we could see Julian Tavarez, Devern Henseck, or a free agent pickup for a spell. It is worth noting, however, that Boston's April schedule has a high number of off-days, so a temporary four-man rotation is plausible.

Now the Boston Globe is reporting Schilling is out until at least the All-Star Break. Per the collective bargaining agreement, Schilling and the team agreed to consult a third party, Mets medical director David Altchek, who sided with the non-surgical approach favored by the club. The team is seeking to void Schilling's contract if he has surgery against their wishes.

Schilling had a good run while it lasted. Clay Buchholz does seem like a logical choice to step in but like previously stated, his workload will have to be closely monitored. Ideally, another year of development would benefit Buchholz and the BoSox leaving the act of filling the rotation with any of the above mentioned SP's a much greater possibilty.
