James Shields To Be Traded In The Next 24 Hours, But To Which Team?

Well folks, we could have the first big trade of the 2016 season within the next 24 hours. The San Diego Padres are looking to deal right-handed pitcher, James Shields, as soon as they can. As of right now, it is reported that there are a few teams interested in Shields, but the Chicago White Sox are the front runners.

 

The White Sox could use another arm in their rotation. Currently, their rotation has four very solid starters, but the fifth starter has brought about many questions. Shields has struggled in 2016, but if he can turn it around, everyone knows how good he can really be.

 

If the White Sox were to land Shields, their rotation would include Chris SaleJose QuintanaCarlos RodonMat Latos, and James Shields.  Trading for Shields could not only bolster their rotation, but it would also bring about a pitcher who goes deep into games to give their bullpen a rest.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/5/16

Typically I post a lineup that fits the cash limits of DraftKings, but I will be on a plane to Los Angeles today (going to see Clayton Kershaw pitch!), so I have decided to post an article with multiple options.

 

P- Jose Fernandez (vs. Miami Marlins): Fernandez has been on fire recently. So far in 2016, he has thrown 67.2 innings, with an 8-2 record, 2.53 ERA, 50 hits against, 96 strikeouts, and 25 walks. The Mets are currently ranked 27th overall in run production, so Fernandez shouldn’t have any problems shutting down their offense.

 

P- Corey Kluber (vs. Kansas City Royals): In 216 career at bats against Kluber, the Royals’ lineup is batting .218, with four home runs, 22 RBIs, 52 strikeouts, and a .245 OBP. Kluber did struggle in his last start (7 IP, 6 ER, 6 Ks), but prior to that start, he had two quality starts. Based on his past success against the Royals, he could be a very solid option on Sunday.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/4/16

P- Clayton Kershaw (vs. Atlanta Braves): $14,100. I don’t care how expensive Kershaw is, he is a must start against one of the worst offenses in baseball. In 104 career at bats against Kershaw, the Braves’ offense is batting .240, with 35 strikeouts, and a .288 OBP.

Kershaw is currently on pace for one of the best seasons in baseball by a pitcher in a long time. In his 86.2 innings pitched in 2016, he owns a 7-1 record, 1.56 ERA, 51 hits against, 105 strikeouts, and only 5 walks.

 

P- Bartolo Colon (vs. Miami Marlins): $7,000. In 262 career at bats, the Marlins’ offense is batting .279 with a .287 OBP. In his last 10 starts, Colon has given up more than three runs in only one of those starts. He won’t put up elite numbers, but he is a very viable option for solid statistics.

The loss of Muhammad Ali makes me wonder who in baseball had a similar legacy and if there will be anyone in the future who could fill his shoes.

It is a “Fly like a Butterfly Sting Like a Bee” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Corey Seager, Danny Salazar, Drew Pomeranz, Evan Gattis, Stephen Vogt, Ricky Nolasco, Starling Marte and Adam Wainwright all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday.
