Tim Wakefield to Skip Next Start

Tim Wakefield

UPDATE: According to the Herald’s John Tomase (yeah, that guy), Tim Wakefield may not make another start for the Sox this season, but that’s just his opinion.

In a move that has become commonplace with the Red Sox pitching staff, Tim Wakefield will miss his next scheduled start due to a recurring back injury. Manager Terry Francona said Wake didn’t suffer a setback with his injury, but Sox management feels it’s the best move for the club.

“When I say re-assess that’s basically what we’re going to do,” Francona said. “Instead of him going out and throwing a side we’ll take a deep breath and we’ll kind of see what to do. We have him penciled in down in Baltimore but having said that we’re going to talk to Tom (Dr. Tom Gill) and figure out whether he can pitch every 10 days or whether that’s doing him a disservice. We’re kind of stuck in the middle and he is too. There’s a lot of gray area here and we really don’t know.”

Francona made sure to say Wakefield felt better after his most recent start against the White Sox than his first start off the disabled list against the Sox as well. That’s good (but hard to believe), especially considering Wake hobbled around while trying to cover first base on Saturday.
