After Curt Schilling was beaten up on the field of play yesterday, there was much speculation in the blogosphere, the media, and even by Chipper Jones that Schilling must be pitching hurt. Well, the other shoe just dropped on this one. The Boston Globe is reporting that Schilling is headed back to Boston for an MRI on his arm. Will Carroll will tell you that "arm" isn't very specific, that could be anything, but thats all we know for now.

Certainly there will be more to come on this.

As I noted to a friend today, putting Curt on the DL for a few starts, even if the MRI doesn't find anything (and I hope there isn't anything to find), wouldn't be the worst thing in the world for the player or the team. Clay Bucholtz and Jon Lester are both ready for the majors right now, so this would give the Red Sox an opportunity to both rest Schilling and see what the youngsters can give us.
