Shields to Miami?: “zero percent chance”

James Shields still remains as one of the premier free agents on the market, and some of his potential suitors are starting to fall out of the race.

There had been rumors linking Shields to the Marlins, but now it appears there is a “zero percent chance” of Shields landing in Miami, a source close to the situation told Jonah Keri of Grantland/ESPN. Earlier on Friday, Jon Daniels, the Rangers general manager, told MLB Network that his club was not in on either of the top tier free agent pitchers, Shields or Max Scherzer.

Shields, 33, has been linked to the Red Sox, Giants, Padres, D-backs and Royals and his agent reportedly met with the Tigers recently.
