It's a rare thing to hear Curt Schilling say he's speechless, but that's the word the veteran used to describe his reaction to Josh Beckett's postgame comments Thursday.
"I guess I'm speechless after all of it, given every thing that has happened, given how last year ended, given all the things going on this year," Schilling on the Adam Jones Show on ESPN Radio.
According to Schilling, it is common practice for healthy pitchers to golf on their off days, but not after being scratched from a start.
"When I was healthy and I was playing in Arizona, Randy Johnson and I golfed every day we didn't pitch," said Schilling. "It was a way for me to keep myself healthy. It was the best thing I could possibly do the day after I pitched to keep my body loose and my arms and my back stretched. But with a physical ailment you never step on the course.
"You get paid a lot of money to throw a baseball and win baseball games, and that always has to be the focus."
BOSTON — Eduardo Nunez is expected to be activated Friday night, but he doesn't have third base all to himself. Rookie Rafael Devers is not going to be sent to the minors to make room, a baseball source told CSNNE on Friday.
The Red Sox announced a roster move for David Price, who went to the disabled list with left elbow inflammation. But the corresponding move to activate Nunez, whom the Red Sox acquired from the Giants in a trade for two minor leaguers, wasn't immediately clear.
If there's no health situation at play and no one lands on the disabled list, Deven Marrero could be the odd man out.
BOSTON — David Price went to the disabled list with left elbow inflammation before his scheduled start Friday. Rick Porcello was moved up a day into Price's slot in the rotation, with Eduardo Rodriguez slated to start Saturday and Drew Pomeranz on Sunday.
Price's elbow is believed to have started to hurt him on the road trip the Red Sox finished on Wednesday, a baseball source said, but it's not 100 percent clear when this present health situation originated. ESPN's Buster Olney reported Price went for an MRI on his elbow Thursday.
The lefty missed two months to begin the season because of an elbow/forearm inury. The nature of that injury was never specificed by the team but was later referred to by Price as a torn elbow.
Robby Scott was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to Price's spot on the roster. Price is on the DL retroactive to July 25, the maximum allowable three days that a DL trip can be made retroactive.
The timing of Price's injury is notable because of the controversy surrounding Price and his confrontation with Dennis Eckersley.
The Globe's Dan Shaughnessy first reported Price could land on the DL because of the elbow.
