Padres | James Shields starting Monday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 04:14:00 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields will start Monday, April 6, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Shields ($7,000, 14% of cap) begins a new era in hometown San Diego, and the matchup is worth the price. It should be a low-scoring game on both sides, and the acquisition of Craig Kimbrel on Sunday makes it more likely for Shields to keep the lead if he gets it and pick up a win. As for Shields himself, he had a 5.14 ERA against the Dodgers last year, but that was with Kansas City. It's a new start for Shields and a decent play for you.

Giants | SF offered James Shields more money

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 10:18:03 -0800

The San Francisco Giants reportedly offered SP James Shields a four-year, $80 million deal before he ended up signing with the San Diego Padres for four years and $75 million, according to multiple sources familiar with the negotiations.

Fantasy Tip: Shields is being counted on to serve as the ace of a much-improved Padres team and should see his numbers improve in a pitcher-friendly National League park. He will likely be selected in the early rounds of fantasy drafts due to his durability and walk-to-strikeout ratio.
