The San Diego Padres "continue to try to push James Shields in the trade market," reports ESPN's Buster Olney.

What It Means:

It might be tough for the Friars to find a decent return package. The soon-to-be 34-year-old is due $63 million over the next three seasons and has been in decline since 2012 from his former ace-like status.

In the first year of a four-year, $75 million free agent deal, Shields posted a mediocre 3.70 xFIP for San Diego in 2015. His 9.61 strikeouts per nine innings was a career-best clip, but his 3.60 walks per nine innings was a career-worst mark. In a winter where top pitchers are going for big, big money, Shields may be a cheaper alternative for a pitching-needy team, which is just about every squad.
