San Diego Padres SP James Shields could be traded to the Chicago White Sox before his next scheduled start on Sunday, June 5. According to a source, the Padres and White Sox are in "advanced stages" of a deal. There is speculation that San Diego could receive minor-league SS Fernando Tatis Jr., the son of former major leaguer Fernando Tatis, along with other prospect in return for Shields.
Fantasy Tip: Shields saw his ERA skyrocket from 3.06 to 4.28 after giving up 10 runs in 2 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss at Seattle, which led to Padres executive chairman Ron Fowler publicly calling out his 34-year-old pitcher. The one-time All-Star has topped 200 innings in every season since 2007 and would slot in nicely between southpaws Chris Sale and Jose Quintana. If this trade goes down as expected, owners should expect a nice boost in wins from Shields with a sub-4.00 ERA the rest of the way, making him a solid third fantasy starting pitcher.

Cleveland Indians C Carlos Santana worked closely with former big league 3B Fernando Tatis in the Dominican Republic over the winter, logging 30 games in winter ball for Escogido. This spring, Santana will continue to train at third base, and he will also serve as the backup catcher behind C Yan Gomes. Manager Terry Francona, general manager Chris Antonetti and Santana had a meeting Wednesday, Feb. 12, to discuss a plan for Santana's spring. The Indians want the switch-hitting Santana in the lineup on a regular basis, and if he is not the regular third baseman, they'd like him to hit against left-handed pitching, since 3B Lonnie Chisenhall struggled mightily against southpaws in 2013.
