Curt Schilling left the team and went back to Boston today to meet with Red Sox team doctor Thomas Gill and have a precautionary MRI on his [right] shoulder.NESN's Tom Caron adds that
a Red Sox official told us there were concerns over the lack of velocity in Schilling's performance last night. According to the NESN radar gun, Schilling never hit 90 mph over his 81 pitches last night.Francona:
I think his shoulder was a little -- he was just having trouble getting loose. With all the humidity [Monday] night, I think our thought would be that it would be easy to get loose. He didn't complain of pain or anything, it's just the ball wasn't coming out [well].Schilling's next start is scheduled for this Sunday against the Padres.
