Player Notes
James Shields is available for trade, according to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi.

Advice: Shields boasts a 1.71 ERA over his last six starts with the White Sox after struggling for the first three months of the 2016 season. He still has a rough 4.68 ERA and 1.48 WHIP overall and he's owed quite a bit of money (with the Padres handling a chunk). It'll be an interesting trade market and stretch run for the 34-year-old right-hander.

James Shields allowed just four hits over 7 2/3 innings as the White Sox beat the Cubs 3-0 on Tuesday.

Advice: Shields walked four, but it didn't much matter when the Cubs could muster only four singles all night. Shields has a 1.71 ERA in his last six starts after coming in at 15.80 in his first four starts after joining the White Sox. He's still not recommended in mixed leagues.

Tue, Jul 26 Rotoworld
James Shields tossed an eight-inning complete game, allowing one run on only two hits, but still lost the game to the Angels on Saturday.

Advice: This one has to be tough to swallow for the struggling veteran. He finally throws a great game and he still loses. He has a 4-11 record with a 5.10 ERA after getting blown up several times this season. He has actually been pitching quite well of late, this being his fourth quality start in a row. It seems safe to get him back in your starting lineup despite the poor overall numbers.
