It turns out that there’s no underlying injury in Schilling’s shoulder. That means he really does just suck this bad!
(9.1 IP, 19 H, 12 R, 11 ER, 3 BB, 5 K in his last 2 starts)
Update by Joe: Schilling has been placed on the 15-day DL. He thinks he has a “touch of tendinitis.”
Anyway, another starter is not needed until Tuesday which, as Nick Cafardo notes, would be Jon Lester’s turn to pitch.
