Morgan said Schilling, 37, will need about six weeks to recover from the operation followed by a similar period of rehabilitation. He is expected to be ready for spring training, which begins in mid-February.

Despite the injury, the 6-foot-5 right-hander pitched the Red Sox to one of their wins in a World Series sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Schilling had a 21-6 record in the regular season.
