Curt Schilling has a serious shoulder injury and
is fighting with the Boston Red Sox on whether to have surgery or
try a less drastic approach.
The Boston Herald is reporting on its Web site that Schilling
has injured his rotator cuff or labrum which could require surgery
that will keep him sidelined all season.
The Boston Globe reported later that the pitcher has decided not
to have the surgery for a partial tear of his rotator cuff. Even if
he opted not to have surgery, he could be sidelined at least until
the All-Star break.
Schilling signed a one-year, 8-million-dollar contract in
November and the 41-year old said this would be his last season.
