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.
