Padres | James Shields giving up homers

Fri, 29 May 2015 11:37:13 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields has allowed 15 home runs this season, the most by a starting pitcher in the National League, but he also has 11.8 strikeouts per nine innings pitched.

Fantasy Tip: Shields ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) hasn't been hurt this season by his tendency to give up home runs. As long as it doesn't hurt his ability to win games, this shouldn't prevent you from putting Shields in your starting lineup every time he pitches.

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.
