Royals tab Shields, Ventura for World Series Games 1, 2

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/18/14) The Royals will start pitchers James Shields in Game 1 and Yordano Ventura in Game 2 of the World Series, Yahoo! Sports reports. The Royals are making their first World Series appearance in 29 years.

Report: Royals don't expect to keep James Shields

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/16/14) The Royals don't expect to keep pitcher James Shields once the season ends, according to the New York Daily News

The club is expected to attempt to re-sign Shields, but it's believed another team will outbid them for the pitcher. Shields posted a 3.21 ERA over 227 innings during the regular season. He was a key component behind the Royals playoff push.

Royals' James Shields turns in rough start Friday

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/11/14) Royals pitcher James Shields had a rough start Game 1 of the ALCS against the Orioles.

Shields allowed four runs on 10 hits over five innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. After tossing two scoreless frames to open the game, Shields allowed his first run in the third. After a base-runner advanced to third on a groundout, Shields gave up an RBI-single to Adam Jones. Things also went south in the fifth. After two straight singles, Nelson Cruz managed to drive in one run on a double. With two men on, Ryan Flaherty drove them both home with a single later in the inning. He would not start the sixth inning. Shields was saddled with the no-decision.

Report: Red Sox could prefer Jon Lester to James Shields

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/14) The Red Sox will likely set their sights on potential free agent right-hander James Shields in the offseason. But they could instead attempt to bring Jon Lester back to Beantown, according to the Boston Herald.

The Herald has speculated that the Sox could offer Shields at least $20 million a year in exchange for a shorter contract of no more than four years. But Lester could prove more attractive despite a bit of a higher cost. He is two years younger.

Shields has not earned his "Big Game" nickname with a 4.96 lifetime ERA in postseason action. Lester is 6-4 with a 2.57 ERA in the postseason.

Heyman: Royals to make run at re-signing James Shields

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/8/14) The Royals will make a run at re-signing impending free agent pitcher James Shields, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.

The Royals were initially believed to only be interested in retaining Shields if the team made a deep run in the playoffs, but according to the report, the Royals informed Shields' agent around the trading deadline that they would attempt to keep the pitcher on a multiyear deal. Shields and the Royals open the American League Championship Series in Baltimore Friday.
