Player Notes
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports the Marlins are interested in free agent James Shields.

Advice: The Marlins performed well enough this past season that they would be required to sacrifice their no. 12 overall pick in next June's draft to sign Shields. Rosenthal notes the link between the two, as Marlins general manager Dan Jennings drafted Shields while with the Rays in 2000. The Diamondbacks were also recently rumored to have interest in the 32-year-old.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Diamondbacks are interested in James Shields.

Advice: The D'Backs tried to trade for Shields when he was with the Rays and apparently are still enamored with him. However, Rosenthal notes that they might have to clear some payroll first in order to sign the veteran right-hander. Chief baseball officer Tony La Russa has noted that Arizona's payroll will be in the $80-110 million range, and they're already at around $90 million when you factor in projected raises in arbitration. Shields has a shot to get a $100 million contract.
