Player Notes
James Shields shut out the Rays for seven innings, striking out 10 batters, in the Royals' 6-0 win Monday.

Advice: Now that's more like it. It's just the second time this season that Shields has gone without allowing a run, and it was also his second double-digit strikeout game. Going into this one, he had allowed 16 earned runs and struck out just 14 over 25 innings in his last four starts. Obviously, the Royals are hoping for many more outings like this in the second half of the season.

James Shields struggled again on Tuesday, allowing five runs -- four earned -- on nine hits in five innings in a loss to the Twins.

Advice: The start marked the third straight start that Shields has allowed at least four earned runs, and he really hasn't been himself since mid-May. He's generating a career-low 8.5 percent swinging strike percentage, and his 1.33 WHIP through 17 starts would be his worst since a forgettable 2010 season. It's not clear what's wrong, and unless it's physical the Royals will continue to run him out every fifth day in hopes he figures it out on his own. Perhaps that will happen in Monday's start at his former team, the Rays.
