Marlins reach out to Adam LaRoche and James Shields

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/21/14) Hoping to add a top hitter and pitcher to its roster, the Marlins have reached out to first baseman Adam LaRoche and pitcher James Shields, reports MLB Insider Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

While Shields is considered a long shot for the Marlins, reports have indicated LaRoche is a real possibility. The Marlins have reportedly offered him a two-year, $20 million contract. Shields’ asking price of $20 million per year is thought to be too pricey for the Marlins.

Report: Marlins interested in SP James Shields

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/18/14) The Marlins have expressed interest in free agent pitcher James Shields, sources tell Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports on Tuesday. The move would cost the team their No. 12 pick in this year's draft.

Marlins general manager Dan Jennings has ties with Shields. Jennings drafted Shields in the 16th round of the 2000 amateur draft when he was with Tampa Bay.

In 2014, Shields helped lead the Royals to their first World Series appearance since 1985 by going 14-8 with a 3.21 ERA.

Report: D-Backs eyeing Shields, but payroll flexibility is challenge

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/18/14) While there hasn't been a lot of chatter about free agent starting pitcher James Shields, one interested team is the Diamondbacks, according to FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal.

The Diamondbacks have a need for a top-of-the-rotation starter, and major-league sources said the Diamondbacks like the veteran pitcher, who is 114-90 with a 3.72 ERA in nine MLB seasons.

The problem for the Diamondbacks will be creating enough payroll flexibility to sign an elite free-agent starting pitcher like Shields.

Diamondbacks chief baseball officer Tony La Russa recently told reporters the team's payroll will range anywhere from $80 million to $110 million. Without considering any free-agent signings, the projected payroll as of now is around $90 million, which includes arbitration-eligible players.

The Diamondbacks tried to trade for Shields and Wade Davis two years ago as part of a three-team trade that would have sent Justin Upton to the Rangers and prospects to the Rays, according to Rosenthal. However, then Arizona general manager Kevin Towers couldn't complete the trade, and the Rays eventually traded Shields and Davis to the Royals.

James Shields says no to Royals' qualifying offer

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/14) As expected, pitcher James Shields turned down a $15.3 million qualifying offer from the Royals by Monday's deadline, according CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

In 2014, Shields helped lead the Royals to their first World Series appearance since 1985 by going 14-8 with a 3.21 ERA. According to Heyman, the Royals have remained realistic about their slim chances of re-signing Shields.

Top arms out of reach for D-Backs, but Kenta Maeda could be option

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/14) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart has made it clear he would like to improve the team's starting rotation, according to The Arizona Republic. Stewart could begin getting closer to his goal as early as this week at the general manager's meetings.

"I don't know if we get it accomplished this week," Stewart said, "but by the time we start the season I'd really like to try to improve our starting rotation.

"If we can clearly improve our team, then I'm not hesitant to make a trade. I don't know that we will or that we won't. What I know is that there's some clubs out there that we've had some conversations with that includes pitching, pretty good pitching. It's a matter of if we can make it happen or not."

Stewart doesn't think the Diamondbacks can afford to pursue free-agent starting pitchers Max Scherzer, Jon Lester, James Shields. However, Arizona might be in the mix for Japanese right-hander Kenta Maeda, if the Hiroshima Carp make him available through the posting system.

"I think that he's going to be a great addition to the club that's going to be able to get his services," Stewart said. "We definitely have interest in him."
