White Sox's James Shields: Looking to rebound in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Shields recognizes that he pitched poorly in 22 starts with the White Sox last season, but maintains confidence that be can bounce back in 2017. "That's not the first time I've had a rough season," Shields said. "I've been in the game a long time, and I know how to combat that. I worked real hard in the offseason, worked on some things in the gym, and I'm ready to go."

Shields did bounce back from a poor season in 2010 (5.18 ERA) to finish third in the AL Cy Young voting in 2011 (2.82 ERA, 11 CG, 249 IP), but he was a 29-year-old lad then. Now, the right-hander is seeking to bounce back at 35 for a team looking a couple years down the road. Shields has been a durable starter over his career, averaging 33 starts and 217 innings the last nine seasons, and there's value in taking the ball every fifth day and giving a team 200 innings. He could make an attractive trade piece for some contending team this season, when the White Sox are ready to hand over the starting rotation to their younger hurlers.

White Sox's James Shields: Loses final start of career-worst season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Shields (6-19) struck out seven and allowed five runs on four hits and three walks over seven innings in a loss to the Twins on Saturday.

Shields' nightmare season has mercifully ended with him currently leading the majors in earned runs allowed (119), home runs allowed (40, most since 2011) and tied for most losses (19) between playing for the Padres and White Sox. Shields didn't even get to extend his streak of nine seasons with at least 200 innings, falling 26 innings short. If there's one silver lining, it's that Shields' best season (2011) came after a bad year, as 2010 was the only other year he had an ERA over 5.00 and WHIP over 1.40. However, he was in his late 20s then, and now he's 34.

White Sox's James Shields: Gives up seven runs to Phillies in just 5.1 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (3-11) gave up seven runs (six earned) on nine hits and three walks while striking out four over just 5.1 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.

Shields wasted a golden opportunity to help out owners, turning in a dud against by far the least threatening offense in baseball. Odubel Herrera in particular was a major thorn in his side, scoring two runs and driving in three more against the veteran. All of the momentum Shields had established with three quality starts in his last four outings is gone heading into Monday's matchup with the Rays.

White Sox's James Shields: Doesn't factor into decision despite strong outing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields struck out eight while allowing just one run on three hits and three walks over six innings Thursday against the Indians, but didn't factor into the decision.

Shields has been better of late, turning in quality starts in three of his last four outings after going five straight without one. Still, a combination of his own shortcomings and a lack of run support has left the veteran right-hander winless over that stretch. Tuesday's trip to Philadelphia offers an excellent opportunity to end that skid, as the Phillies are among the worst teams in baseball.

White Sox's James Shields: Records quality start in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields allowed three runs on four hits and four walks Saturday against Kansas City while striking out five. He did not factor into the decision.

Despite concerns over a lingering back issue, Shields offered up a strong performance against the division rivals and recorded a quality start. He lowered his ERA and WHIP on the season to 6.01 and 1.63, respectively, which lands him in the bottom tier of fantasy starters. Saturday was just the second start since the beginning of August in which he'd given up fewer than four runs.
