With Curt Schilling going on the DL, a roster move had to happen with the Sox. I am not sure if J.D. Drew’s quad injury changed their thinking but they decided on calling up David Murphy from Pawtucket. He is with the team and will be available tonight. He will probably be with the club for only 4 days as the Sox will need a starter on Tuesday.For that, the Red Sox have decided on Kason Gabbard instead of Jon Lester to fill that role. Gabbard has already been up for one spot start this season as he filled in while Josh Beckett was on the DL. In his one start with Boston, he went 6 innings, striking out 7 in a win.

Murphy’s numbers in Pawtucket look like this: .283 avg with 5 home runs and 34 RBIs.

Gabbard’s numbers in Pawtucket look like this: 7-2 with a 3.24 ERA in 14 starts.

If I had to venture a guess, I would say that Gabbard will most likely make two starts for the big club while Schilling recovers.
