Potentially a good thing for Foulke owners so he can get right, but you better hope they don't find anything. Any insights into what this might be, RSNers?

So who takes over the closers job? Timlin? Maybe Schilling gets a chance :-?

I think it's Timlin for now, but I do hear alot of talk about Schilling, it's going to be a tossup.

As far as Foulke goes, I really don't think it's anything physical, more of a emotional/mental problem right now. I think he just doesn't have that focus that a closer needs (ala Turnbow !+) ) to close the door on a game. With this stint on the DL, I think he will get a good chance to clear up some things, and hopefully clear up his mind, come back to his dominant form like everyone is hoping for.

I'm a Timlin owner, but I still like to see the Red Sox succeed, and Foulke is a key part of that.

I really see no chance of a Schilling closing stint. Once you become a closer, you really don't go back to the rotation in the same season. Closer is a very defined and more permanent job than a bullpen stint like they're saying it is.

The only chance of him becoming a closer IMO, is if they truly feel he can't pitch 6 or 7 innings, although having thrown 93 pitches already makes me really doubt that.

Red Sox closer Keith Foulke underwent arthroscopic surgery
on his left knee Thursday and could miss up to six weeks,
according to the team's official website. "The surgery went
well, and Keith will be starting his rehabilitation
immediately," said Red Sox Medical Director Dr. Thomas Gill,
who did the procedure. "While recovery from surgery like
this typically takes approximately six weeks, Keith's
rehabilitation will be advanced based on attaining specific
milestones."

Foulke's struggles over the first half were well documented.
He'll be out of action until at least early-to-mid August
and might return to find that his job as closer is being
held by someone else. Reserve him for now, but monitor the
bullpen situation for the Red Sox.

Aiya.

I was hoping he'd be back in 2-3 weeks or something... this is pretty much going to kill any value for the rest of the season. Time to pull back that WW request...
