James Shields strikes out six in no decision

James Shields allowed one earned run on four hits and five walks while striking out six batters on Wednesday night vs. the Rays.

Fantasy Impact

It was Shields best start of the year, which is not saying much. The five walks could have caused a lot more damage then they did and his 38% hard contact rate is unlikely to come down anytime soon. Shields is a shadow of his former self these days and has no business on a fantasy roster in any format.
