James Shields takes another loss

James Shields allowed three runs on six hits with four walks and five strikeouts over six innings Sunday against the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

Shields has turned in four quality starts in his last five appearances, but he's 1-4 over that stretch. This figures to continue to be the case given the state of the White Sox, but Shields has been useful for deep-league fantasy owners this year given his consistency. He's not sitting with an ERA and WHIP of 4.63 and 1.26 on the season.

James Shields allows seven runs versus the Twins on the road

James Shields went six innings, allowing seven earned runs on eight hits and striking out six batters as the White Sox lost on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

After giving up three earned runs or less in his four previous starts, Shields really struggled in Minnesota allowing three home runs for the second straight start. At this time, Shields is not a player to have on your roster.

James Shields with fourth straight quality start

James Shields allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk with six strikeouts over seven innings during Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Shields has now gone at least seven innings in each of his last four outings, each of which was a quality start. He now has QSs in six of his last seven outings, and he's increased his strikeout rate over that stretch. He still only has one win on the season, and they'll be tough to count on, but he's not the same gas can that he's been over the last few years.

James Shields with another quality start

James Shields turned in another quality start on Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits with three walks and four strikeouts over seven innings against the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

Shields took the loss despite the quality start. It was his third straight QS, and he has turned them in during five of his last six outings. Despite that, he's 0-2 over that stretch of six games. He's 1-5 on the season with an ERA and WHIP of 4.54 and 1.25.

James Shields with another quality start on Tuesday

James Shields allowed two runs on five hits and two walks over seven innings against the Orioles on Tuesday. He struck out five and did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Other than a porous strikeout rate, Shields has actually been serviceable for AL-only owners this year, and he's now thrown quality starts in four of his last five outings. He'll look to keep his decent run going in his next start against Detroit.
