 BOSTON (AP) -The Boston Red Sox are making plans to return from the All-Star break without Curt Schilling in the rotation.
The 40-year-old right-hander went on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis effective June 19, but the team had announced that he won't pitch again until after next week's break. On Wednesday, the Red Sox announced their rotation through July 16 without Schilling.
Schilling played catch on Monday and was to do so ``several more times'' before he would return, manager Terry Francona said.
Josh Beckett is on the AL roster for the July 10 All-Star game in San Francisco, and if he pitches then the Red Sox would use Tim Wakefield on July 12, when baseball returns from the three-day break. Julian Tavarez will start that Friday, followed by Daisuke Matsuzaka, Beckett and Kason Gabbard.
