James Shields pitches five hitless innings for Padres
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) James Shields continued his strong spring for the Padres with five hitless innings on Sunday.
Shields struck out six and walked two, lowering his spring ERA to 2.25.
Shields has given up just four hits in 12 innings this spring, while striking out 16. He also singled in his first two spring at bats before snapping his streak by making an out in his second time up, Sunday.
"I just need to clean that up a bit this next outing," Shields said to U-T San Diego, "or it might be a thing where I might just go into the stretch beginning of an inning."
James Shields is the Padres' likely opening day starter
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) It appears to be shaping up for pitcher James Shields to start opening day for the Padres, according to MLB.com.
Padres manager Bud Black has yet to make an official announcement on an opening day starter but said a decision will be made soon. But with the way the rotation has gone thus far in camp, it's shaping up for Shields to be ready to go against the Dodgers on April 6.
On Thursday against the Dodgers, Shields pitched a perfect three innings in a 1-0 loss.
Shields signed a four-year, $75 million deal with the Padres in February.

Padres' James Shields to make spring debut on Saturday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) Padres pitcher James Shields will make his spring debut on Saturday, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
After Shields pitched deep into the postseason, the Padres wanted to bring him along slowly during camp. He'll make his first start against the Giants on Saturday. It's unclear how long Shields will pitch.
The 33-year-old posted a 3.21 ERA over 227 innings last season.
Padres' Shields being held back following deep postseason run
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/2/15) Since Padres starting pitcher James Shields pitched deep into the postseason last year with the Royals, the coaching staff has him slightly behind the other starters in camp, per U-T San Diego.
"Fortunately, we don't have to start him until a little bit further -- he's not starting in the first three (spring-training) games -- but he'll be fine," pitching coach Darren Balsley said. "It's no big deal."

|2014 summary: For the most part, James Shields had a typical James Shields season for the Royals. He was highly durable, topping 200 innings for the eighth straight season and exceeding 220 innings for the fourth year in a row. Shields had even better control than usual, throwing 65 percent of his pitches for strikes and walking only 1.7 batters per nine innings. There was nothing wrong with his 14-8 record, 3.21 ERA and 1.18 WHIP, but his 7.1 K/9 ratio was Shields' lowest since 2009. That was depressed by a nine-start run after the All-Star break during which Shields struck out only 5.9 batters per nine innings.
Playing time status: Having signed with the Padres this offseason for four years at $75 million, Shields will bring his appetite for innings to PETCO Park, yet another pitcher-friendly home venue for the former Royal and Ray.
2015 outlook: Shields has had the good fortune of pitching in home parks that are tough on home run hitters, but generally, he's been homer-prone on the road (1.3 HR/9) over his career. Though that trend could continue, Shields should still be treated as a top 30 starter, as he could be a great help to owners in his home starts.
