Injury stops Wells before he can start again

David Wells was trying his best to be a medical miracle.

Whacked off the right kneecap with a line drive Friday night, Wells has made better progress than he thought, but his attempt to show that he could make his scheduled start tomorrow didn't convince the Red Sox, who are scrambling for a starter.

Manager Terry Francona said the team was not ready to place Wells on the 15-day disabled list, and Wells, who elected not to speak to reporters yesterday, has said he doesn't believe he'd need that much down time.

``What we were trying to do was try to let him throw off of flat ground," Francona said. ``If that went well, we would progress it maybe to the mound. He was sore. We appreciated him trying to do it even though it was a long shot. We've shut it down rather than aggravate it. We'll make a decision on a Wednesday pitcher whenever it's appropriate."

Wells got off about 15-20 pitches ``but it was obvious he wasn't going to be able to do it," Francona said. ``That's what we were trying to determine today and I think we did that. Once we determined that, we just shut him down.
