James Shields: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox declined Shields' $16 million option for 2019, making him a free agent.

As expected, the White Sox opted to exercise their $2 million buyout of the veteran right-hander, who posted a 4.53 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 154:78 K:BB across 204.2 innings. Shields' prior major-league experience should help him find work elsewhere, though his days as a reliable fantasy asset appear to be behind him.

White Sox's James Shields: Reaches 200 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields allowed four runs on six hits and four walks while striking out six over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Indians.

Shields was on the hook for a loss, but his teammates picked him up with a three-run ninth inning to pull out a 5-4 win. The outing pushed Shields to 204.2 innings for the season, the 10th 200-inning season for the 36-year-old. He finishes the season 7-16 with a 4.53 ERA, which is an improvement on the combined 5.60 ERA he posted over the previous two seasons. He enters the offseason as a free agent.

White Sox's James Shields: Tosses six shutout frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (6-15) pitched six scoreless innings, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out six as he secured the win Sunday against Boston.

Shields turned in a stellar performance against a tough Boston starting nine, as he recorded a quality start and threw 57 of 93 pitches for strikes. The 36-year old has looked sharp over his previous two outings, allowing just two runs across 11.2 frames while punching out nine. He'll look to keep it rolling in his next start Saturday against the Angels.

White Sox's James Shields: Thrashed for seven runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (5-15) pitched 6.2 innings Thursday, yielding seven runs on 10 hits and a walk in the 7-2 loss to Detroit. He struck out five and allowed three home runs while taking the loss.

Shields held the Tigers off the board in the first three innings before things unfolded. He was taken deep for three solo shots in the sixth inning and was eventually lifted in the seventh after a two-run double by Jim Adduci. The ugly outing bumps his season ERA to 4.59 in 170.2 innings. Shields will have a tough matchup against the Yankees next Tuesday in New York.

White Sox's James Shields: Loses in serviceable but flawed outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (4-14) gave up three runs (two earned) in seven innings but took the loss Saturday. He allowed seven hits but didn't allow a walk and struck out four.

The veteran righty worked through rough command, posting just 59 strikes on 94 pitches. On the positive side, Shield has gobbled up innings for a club playing out the string, failing to pitch into the sixth inning just once in his past nine outings. Across the previous eight before this one, he struck out 50 in 50 frames, which proves he can be useful in some fantasy settings. He might provide more streamer appeal Friday versus the Royals.
