 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -Boston right-hander Curt Schilling was upbeat one day after his second rehabilitation start and will likely rejoin the Red Sox rotation in a little more than one week.
Red Sox manager Terry Francona, before Friday night's game at Tampa Bay, said Schilling's probable return will be on Aug. 5 at Seattle or one day later against the Los Angeles Angels.
``I feel great,'' Schilling said Friday. ``Feel strong. I think we're at the point now where I can continue to really grind it between starts.''
Schilling looked impressive Thursday, throwing five scoreless innings and striking out eight in his latest start for Triple-A Pawtucket. He flew to Florida afterward to continue his rehab program with the Red Sox before rejoining Pawtucket for what should be his final minor league start Tuesday.
``When I come back here, I can't be a guy that taxes the bullpen,'' Schilling said. ``I've got to be able to go deep into ballgames.''
Schilling hasn't pitched for Boston in more than a month since he went on the disabled list on June 22 because of tendinitis in his shoulder.
``I think he should be (upbeat),'' Francona said. ``He threw the ball really well.''
