White Sox's James Shields: Shelled by Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (3-10) allowed eight earned runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out nine across 5.2 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Astros.

Shields was crushed by the Astros all game, allowing at least one run in four of the six innings he pitched. He was bitten by the long ball -- he allowed a two-run and three-run home run -- though this was the first time he had allowed multiple home runs in five starts. Shields had allowed only seven earned runs in 31.1 innings across those five starts, so his recent track record indicates he deserves the benefit of the doubt after going up against one of the more prolific offenses on Saturday.

White Sox's James Shields: Pitches well in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields allowed one run on four hits and four walks while striking out three over 6.2 innings, taking a no decision in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Reds.

Shields, who overcame a rocky first inning that included a leadoff homer, a single, and two walks, left after 88 pitches with a 2-1 lead. It was the fourth quality start in the last five outings for the 36-year-old right-hander, who lowered his ERA to 3.15 over the last 10 starts. He'll see a tougher opponent the next time out when he takes the mound Saturday against the Astros.

White Sox's James Shields: Wins third game behind seven scoreless
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (3-9) tossed seven shutout innings and allowed just four hits and two walks with five strikeouts to earn the victory Wednesday against the Twins.

Shields used 13 ground ball outs to take down the Twins in his first shutout start of the season. He's starting to find a rhythm over the past month and change, as he now has seven quality starts in his last nine outing, a stretch in which he owns a 45:19 K:BB and a 3.36 ERA over 59 innings. It's been a long time since we've seen Shields pitch well this consistently, and it would be understandable if fantasy owners are slow to believe, but this is finally starting to look like, if not vintage Shields, the pitcher who was still a solid mid-rotation option back in Kansas City half a decade ago. He'll start again Monday against the Reds.

White Sox's James Shields: Done in by six unearned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (2-9) took the loss to the Athletics on Friday, lasting 4.2 innings while allowing eight runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks. He struck out four.

A one-out fielding error in the second led to four of the unearned runs crossing the plate. A fielding error and a wild pitch in the fifth created the other two. Shields did little help himself even with the defensive miscues, though, and remains a risky start for most fantasy games.

White Sox's James Shields: Starting first game Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields will start the first game of Friday's doubleheader, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The White Sox's game Thursday was postponed due to inclement and will be made up as part of a doubleheader Friday, which is Shields' scheduled day. He'll get the ball for Friday's 3:10 pm start while Thursday's scheduled starter, Lucas Giolito, throws in the nightcap.
