BOSTON -- Curt Schilling threw 40 pitches off the mound today, and while there didn't seem to be any physical problems, the veteran right-hander was not happy with his command, said manager Terry Francona.
"The good news is he's ramping it up," said Francona.
The plan for Schilling is to for him to throw again off the mound on Friday in Cincinnati, and the step after that, if all was progressing as the Sox hope, would be for him to face hitters.
Daisuke Matsuzaka did some throwing Monday on the Red Sox' day off. He'll throw a side session Wednesday and then another side session a few days after that one, presuming everything has been going well.
Then, said Francona, the Sox will figure out what to do next with Matsuzaka, options that could include a rehab stint in the minors, though that plan has not been set in stone.
