White Sox's James Shields: Hopes to recapture past success with altered motion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (knee) adjusted his delivery over the offseason with the hope to improve his fortunes on the mound, Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reports.

According to reports, the veteran starter is working on implementing a lower arm slot in his delivery. He also has a renewed focus on his off speed offerings now that he understands his fastball isn't good enough to simply blow it past professional hitters. Shields struggled a lot last season, posting a 5.23 ERA in 21 starts, but as long as his body holds up over the course of the season, he hopes that this new approach is just what he needs to return to being a respectable pitcher in the majors.

White Sox's James Shields: Could garner Opening Day start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (knee) could be the White Sox's starter Opening Day at Kansas City, Scott Merkin of the White Sox's official site reports.

Merkin speculated that Shields makes the most sense as the Opening Day starter if Carlos Rodon (shoulder) is not ready to take the hill. The White Sox open the season with a six-game road trip in Kansas City and Toronto, meaning the Game 1 starter would need to pitch two games away from Chicago. The veteran right-hander would be more attuned to handle the road starts at the outset of the season rather than the young prospects (Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez, Carson Fulmer) that are expected to be included in the starting rotation.

White Sox's James Shields: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields won't make another start before the end of the season due to knee tendinitis, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Shields will get PRP injections in both of his knees and rest up for the remainder of the regular season. Chris Volstad is expected to step into the rotation to start Sunday for Shields. The 35-year-old compiled a 5.23 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 117 innings (21 starts) this season.

White Sox's James Shields: Fires seven strong for win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (5-7) allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight batters through seven innings during Monday's win over the Angels.

Shields entered Monday with a serviceable 4.56 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 8.6 K/9 through his previous nine outings, so this was another respectable showing from the veteran. Those are helpful fantasy numbers in deeper settings. Unfortunately, Shields lines up for a potentially tough road start against Cleveland to finish off his 2017 campaign.

White Sox's James Shields: Takes loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (4-7) allowed three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out five in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Astros.

The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for Shields. The 35-year-old has a 5.40 ERA, the second consecutive season with an ERA above five, and is giving up a career-high 2.1 home runs per nine innings. After 10 straight seasons with more than 30 starts, there's a lot of mileage on that right arm. Now might be the time his effectiveness as a starter diminishes.
