Report: Marlins keeping tabs on James Shields
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Marlins are keeping tabs on pitcher James Shields, according to ESPN.

With Max Scherzer now off the market, teams who missed out have already started turning their attention to Shields. The 33-year-old is coming off a season in which he posted a 3.21 ERA over 227 innings. The Marlins spent the offseason making upgrades in the rotation, acquiring both Mat Latos and Dan Haren.

GM Stewart: D-Backs no longer pursuing James Shields
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It appears the Diamondbacks are no longer pursuing free agent starting pitcher James Shields. Just a few weeks after saying Arizona remain interested in Shields, general manager Dave Stewart said Thursday the Diamondbacks are no longer in on the 33-year-old pitcher.

With Shields seeking a contract worth $100 million, it was going to be difficult to sign him since the Diamondbacks' payroll is already around $106 million.

"The truth is, I haven't even thought about how," Stewart said Jan. 13. "We'll look at the numbers and look at who we'll have to possibly subtract, if that's what we have to do.

"I would like to be (under $100 million). I've not been told to be, but I would like to be."

Report: Padres 'unlikely to land' SP James Shields
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Padres are on the "periphery" of the James Shields sweepstakes, and are "unlikely to land him," according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports on Thursday.

Royals general manager Dayton Moore also indicated earlier in the day that it's doubtful Kansas City will bring Shields back in 2015. Shields is reportedly seeking a five-year, $125-million offer. Shields is 114-90 with a 3.72 ERA over nine MLB seasons. According to the report, the teams with the heaviest interest remain unclear at this point.

Royals GM Moore: It's doubtful we bring back James Shields
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals general manager Dayton Moore is well aware that starting pitcher James Shields remains unsigned, according to MLB Network Radio.

"I can't say it hasn't crossed my mind [to try and bring him back]," Moore said Thursday. "Right now with Edinson Volquez, we feel rotation will be solid. 

"At this point in time, though, it's doubtful we bring back James."

Shields spent the last two seasons with the Royals. He went 27-17 with a 3.18 ERA in 68 starts for Kansas City. Shields is reportedly looking for a five-year, $125 million contract.
