Red Sox Bot Notes

Schilling Beginning to Throw

Boston Red Sox starter Curt Schilling played long toss before Thursday’s game against the Detroit Tigers, continuing his rehabilitation from a shoulder injury.

Schilling also tested that shoulder by playing catch on flat ground Tuesday but wasn’t ready to begin throwing off a mound. “He did good. He looked good,” manager Terry Francona said. “It’s a good step for him. But he’s not ready yet.” The 41-year-old right-hander threw 25 balls from 60 feet away.

Wakefield and Timlin Do Something Special

Tim Wakefield and Mike Timlin had no idea they were making history Tuesday night. For the first time in baseball’s modern era, the Boston Red Sox had two pitchers over 40 combine on a shutout. Wakefield gave up just two hits in eight innings and Timlin got the final three outs of a 5-0 victory over the Tigers.
