White Sox | James Shields on trading block

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 08:17:46 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields is on the trading block, according to sources. The White Sox are on the hook for $22 million of his salary next season, which significantly lessens the financial commitment of suitors, and Shields has posted a 1.71 ERA over his past six starts.

Fantasy Tip: Shields passed the eye test against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, July 26, and he's clearly in a groove. He's a player to watch over the coming weeks because relocating to a contender with a more pitcher-friendly park would be another boon to his fantasy value. For now, continue to start Shields with confidence.

White Sox | James Shields shuts down Cubs

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 22:46:09 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields gave up four hits and four walks over 7 2/3 scoreless innings against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, July 26. He struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: Through three starts with the Pale Hose, Shields was 0-2 with a 21.81 ERA. In seven starts since, he's 3-3 with a 2.11 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. The veteran's strikeouts are way down with the ChiSox (24 in 48 IP), but those ratios give Shields some appeal in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Cubs | Willson Contreras not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 13:42:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Willson Contreras is not in the lineup Tuesday, July 26, against the Chicago White Sox. C Miguel Montero will bat eighth against White Sox SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: The presence of a DH has thrown off the lineup a bit. Kris Bryant is the DH and Tommy LaStella is at third, for example. Montero is hitting .204-5-21 and doesn't carry much fantasy value in place of Contreras.

White Sox | James Shields tagged with loss

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 23:26:04 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields gave up two runs and seven hits in six innings of work Thursday, July 21, in a 2-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers. Shields fell to 3-12 overall.

Fantasy Tip: Shields has posted five earned runs and eight strikeouts in over 21 innings, but the end result is three straight losses in his last three starts. That's a bit of hard luck. This has not been a great season for Shields, who should be kept sidelined. Shields' fantasy value hasn't climbed to the point yet where players should pick him up.

White Sox | Big Game James heating up

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:02:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields is scheduled to start Thursday, July 21, against the Detroit Tigers. He is 2-2 with a 1.91 ERA over his past four outings.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a forgettable season for Shields, and he started off his Chicago career very poorly. However, he is starting to piece it together and he has re-emerged as a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues, deeper mixed formats and DFS play.

White Sox | Is James Shields finding his groove?

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:53:46 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields owns a 1.91 ERA with 12 strikeouts through 28 1/3 innings over his past four starts.

Fantasy Tip: Shields had a disastrous run to start his tenure with the White Sox (21.81 ERA through three outings), but he's rebounded of late. And while fantasy owners would still like to see a few more punchouts, at least Shields can be considered a viable option now.

White Sox | James Shields turning it around?

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 21:34:42 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields allowed one earned run, two hits and two walks in eight innings in a complete game loss Saturday, July 16, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. It was his fourth consecutive quality start after a rough start.

Fantasy Tip: Shields is 1-2 in three starts in the month of July, but he has a 2.08 ERA in 21 2/3 innings. He has chopped his ERA from 11.07 to 6.43 during the span, re-emerging as a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues, deeper mixed formats and as a mid-tier play in DFS.
