Player Notes
James Shields was quite effective in Tuesday's start, allowing two runs (one earned) over six innings as the Royals defeated the Indians 8-2.

Advice: Shields got his second victory of the season, allowing only six hits and a walk while striking out nine. He now carries a 1.91 ERA with a 35/7 K/BB ratio through five starts. Shields can become a free agent after the season and is pitching his way towards a big payday. Shields will try to keep the good times rolling against the Orioles next.

7 hours ago Rotoworld
James Shields fanned 12 while surrendering just one run in eight innings to beat the Astros for his first win of the year on Thursday.

Advice: It was Shields' seventh career 12-strikeout game, but his first since he joined the Royals a year ago; his season high last year was 10 strikeouts. Shields gave up six unearned runs in his last start against the Twins, but outside of the one bad inning when all of them scored, he's been excellent through four starts, amassing a 2.00 ERA and a 26/6 K/BB ratio.
