Player Notes
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that James Shields' contract demands are expected to be around five years and $110 million.

Advice: It's the same amount left on Cole Hamels' contract, assuming Hamels' option is picked up, and is a reasonable demand after Jon Lester landed a $155 million deal from the Cubs. Cafardo says that the Giants and Red Sox are "in the picture" for Shields, while the Yankees "may be another suitor." Shields, who just turned 33, holds a 3.64 ERA over his eight full seasons and has made at least 31 starts every year during that stretch.

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported that the Giants were exploring a "wide-range" of pitching options, including James Shields.

Advice: The Giants were in on Jon Lester last month and continue to search for a big-name starter to fill out their rotation. The team met with Shields last week and according to Rosenthal, continues to show interest. The Giants have also been attached to Max Scherzer, though it's reasonable to assume that Scherzer might be beyond their price range if he really is seeking a $200 million deal.
