 BOSTON (AP) -Curt Schilling is set to make his first start for Boston in more than six weeks in Seattle on Sunday after recovering from tendinitis in his right shoulder.
Schilling pitched seven shutout innings in his third rehab start Tuesday night for Triple-A Pawtucket at Columbus.
``Schill's all set to go Sunday,'' Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Wednesday. ``The ball keeps coming out of his hand like we want it to. It's been very successful. We'll be thrilled to have him back.''
Schilling was 6-4 with a 4.20 ERA in 15 starts when he went on the disabled list on June 22, four days after he struggled against the Atlanta Braves, allowing six runs in 4 1-3 innings.
``I want to be in Boston,'' he said after his latest rehab outing. ``I answered every question I could answer. I'm healthy, I feel good, I feel strong and I'm ready to go back and help them win games.''
Against Columbus he allowed four hits and no walks and struck out four while throwing 60 of his 77 pitches for strikes.
In three rehab starts, Schilling worked 15 scoreless innings in which he had 18 strikeouts.
