Non-Giants News: Schilling has injured right shoulder

Couldn't happen to a bigger jerk.

BOSTON (AP) -- Curt Schilling has an injured right shoulder, and the ballplayer and the Boston Red Sox have been squabbling over whether he should have surgery that could cost him the season or try something less drastic.

"Curt Schilling was examined by Red Sox doctors in January after he reported feeling right shoulder discomfort," the Red Sox said in a statement Thursday night. "Curt has started a program of rest, rehabilitation and shoulder strengthening in an attempt to return to pitching."

Red Sox officials declined to elaborate on the two-sentence statement, which was released at 8:11 p.m. Schilling's blog was last updated Wednesday, and he did not return calls or e-mails seeking comment; his spokeswoman, Katie Leighton, said he would have none.

The Boston Herald reported on its Web site that Schilling may have injured his rotator cuff or labrum, a problem serious enough to consider surgery that could keep him out for the whole 2008 season. The Boston Globe reported later Thursday that even without surgery Schilling would be out until at least the All-Star break.

I'm sure he'd like some HGH now...
