Player Notes
Padres manager Bud Black officially named James Shields as the team's Opening Day starter.

Advice: The move doesn't come as a major surprise, as the 33-year-old hurler was signed this winter to be the ace of the Padres staff. His fantasy value continues to rise as he's pitching in the friendly confines of Petco Park.

James Shields had a rough outing against the Rockies on Friday, allowing five runs (three earned) on six hits over his 4 1/3 innings.

Advice: Big Game James punched out five on the evening and walked one. It was the roughest start of the spring for the 33-year-old hurler, who still sports a respectable 3.31 ERA and outstanding 21/5 K/BB ratio across 16 1/3 innings. With his move to the National League and the pitcher-friendly confines of Petco Park, he has been a very popular commodity on fantasy draft boards this spring.

James Shields held the Cubs hitless -- and scoreless -- over five innings on Sunday.

Advice: It was a pitcher's duel, as Jason Hammel matched Shields blow-for-blow. Shields walked two and struck out six in the effort, lowering his spring ERA to 2.25. The right-hander has a 16/4 K/BB ratio in 12 innings so far, looking quite ready to start the regular season with his new club.
