Royals | James Shields acquired

The Kansas City Royals acquired SP James Shields and P Wade Davis from the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, Dec. 9, for minor-league prospect OF Wil Myers, minor-league 3B Patrick Leonard and minor-league Ps Jake Odorizzi and Mike Montgomery.

Fantasy Tip: Shields loses a little fantasy value going from a perennial contender to a perennial doormat, but he'll still be a solid option for the middle of a fantasy rotation option worthy of a middle-round pick in mixed formats on draft day, and an early-round option in AL-only formats.
