White Sox's James Shields: Takes no-decision against Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields allowed two runs on six hits and three walks over six innings with six strikeouts in a no-decision Monday against the Tigers.

Shields gave up another home run, putting him up to 32 allowed in just 27 starts between the White Sox and Padres this season. He has always had an issue with home runs, but Shields has now allowed 65 in his past 60 starts dating back to 2016. The result has been a 7.16 ERA in his 16 starts for the White Sox, and until he shows he isn't due for a home run or two every time he steps on the mound, there's little reason to believe he'll improve.

White Sox's James Shields: Serves up another two homers in loss to Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Shields (5-16) gave up four runs on seven hits -- including another two home runs -- in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies, although he did strike out six without a walk.

It's nice to see Shields miss some bats and refrain from issuing free passes -- incredibly, the six whiffs represent his highest total in 15 starts with the White Sox, and this was the first time all year that he didn't walk anyone. Of course, those positives are overshadowed by the simply brutal number of homers Shields has allowed -- an incredible 11 over his last four starts and 31 on the season, the second-highest total in the majors. There's a strong argument to be made that Shields has been the worst starter in baseball this year, which should keep fantasy owners from taking a shot on the formerly name-brand hurler.

White Sox's James Shields: Crushed by the Orioles on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (3-7) got hammered for eight runs on six hits and two walks over just 1.1 innings in Sunday's 10-2 loss to the Orioles. He struck out one.

Four of the six hits left the yard, which means Shields recorded one out for every home run he served up. To save you the math, that's a 27.0 HR/9 rate for the game. The 34-year-old appeared to be turning his season around after posting a 1.78 ERA over five July starts, but 14 earned runs in 6.1 August innings has sent his ERA on the season soaring back up to 6.68. The White Sox will gamely trot Shields back out to the mound Saturday in Miami, but use him at your own risk.

White Sox's James Shields: Implodes in disastrous fifth against Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (5-13) allowed six runs, nine hits and two walks over five innings in the loss Tuesday against the Tigers.

Shields held the Tigers scoreless through four innings before imploding in the fifth when he allowed all of his runs on seven hits. Tuesday marked the end of a six-game stretch of quality starts for Shields, who now owns a 4.92 ERA and 1.51 WHIP for the year. He'll look to get back on track next time out against the Orioles on Sunday.

White Sox's James Shields: Tosses 7.2 shutout innings against Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (3-5) threw 7.2 shutout innings, allowed just four hits and four walks, and struck out five in a win Tuesday over the Cubs.

This was by far Shields's best start as a White Sox. It marked his first shutout outing and tied his White Sox highs for both strikeouts and innings pitched. He induced 14 swinging strikes in the process and managed to keep the ball in the yard while inducing 12 flyouts. He has now thrown six straight quality starts, so don't let his 5.17 ERA scare you away.
