Shields Nearing A Decision
It took nearly the entire off season, but it appears James Shields is nearing a decision.
Earlier Saturday it was reported that although the Padres are the favorites to land the right-hander, several teams are still in the race.
When Shields ultimately does decide to sign, it looks like his price will have dropped again. The finals numbers are expected to be below 4-years and $80 million, according to ESPN.
Shields, 33, went 14-8 with a 3.21 ERA in 34 starts last season.
