      Padres SP James Shields will not start Sunday

      Padres starting pitcher James Shields will not make his scheduled start Sunday, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports. He is not injured, but the Padres want to evaluate some of their other pitchers, so it will be a bullpen day. Shields can now be dropped in single-season leagues. It is unclear who will take the ball Sunday, but it will be difficult to peg which Padres reliever could be in position to qualify for a win.

      Padres SP James Shields bounces back for Sunday victory

      Padres starter James Shields has suffered through several poor performances this season. But he has generally rebounded nicely in his next outing.

Shields bounced back to allow the Phillies only one run on six hits in seven innings to improve his record to 10-6. He walked one and fanned eight. Shields, whose lone hiccup was a home run by Cameron Rupp in the second inning, now owns a 3.78 ERA.

      Padres SP James Shields posts quality start, takes loss Tuesday

      Padres SP James Shields blanks Giants over five, but wild again

      Padres starter James Shields pitched well Wednesday against San Francisco - he just didn't go long enough to prevent a meltdown by the bullpen that cost him a win. Shields tossed five shutout innings, but was removed after throwing 96 pitches. He allowed three hits and three walks while fanning seven. But the relievers gave up seven runs thereafter. "I was still good to go," he told MLB.com. "I've been in that situation a few times in my career. I definitely had more in the tank. But it's not my decision. It's our manager's decision." Shields has failed to register a quality start over his last three outings. He has walked 11 during that stretch, which has contributed greatly to his short starts.
