Nov. 3 9:02 AM PT10:02 AM MT11:02 AM CT12:02 PM ET12:02 ET17:02 GMT1:02 10:02 AM MST12:02 PM EST12:32 PM VEN21:02 UAE11:02 AM CT-The Royals extended a $15.3 million qualifying offer Monday to Shields, which assures Kansas City of draft pick compensation if its staff ace signs a major league contract with another team before June 8.
Analysis: Shields has until Nov. 10 to accept, and it is expected he will not. In the past two years, none of the 22 free agents given qualifying offers have accepted. Kansas City has expressed interest in re-signing Shields, who helped the Royals reach the playoffs for the first time in 29 years and win the AL pennant.

Analysis: "Big Game James" has hardly lived up to his nickname in the postseason. He's 3-5 with a 5.74 ERA in 10 career starts there and is 1-1 with a 7.11 ERA in four playoff starts this year. He was charged with five runs and seven hits while throwing 71 pitches Tuesday.
Sep. 26 7:46 AM PT8:46 AM MT9:46 AM CT10:46 AM ET10:46 ET14:46 GMT22:46 7:46 AM MST9:46 AM EST10:16 AM VEN18:46 UAE9:46 AM CT-Shields did not get a decision as the Royals put themselves on the verge of a playoff spot with a 6-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.
Analysis: Shields allowed three runs and five hits, including a two-run homer. His next start will be in the postseason, assuming the Royals do not somehow collapse and choke.
Sep. 21 5:37 PM PT6:37 PM MT7:37 PM CT8:37 PM ET20:37 ET0:37 GMT8:37 5:37 PM MST7:37 PM EST8:07 PM VEN4:37 UAE (+1)7:37 PM CT-Shields lost for the first time in five starts Saturday, giving up three runs over 6 2-3 innings of a 3-2 loss to Detroit.

Analysis: He's won 13 games in five straight seasons and reached 200 innings in eight. More importantly for the AL Central-leading Royals, he's posted a 0.59 ERA and .148 opponents' average over his last two starts.

Analysis: Shields faces the Tigers this weekend but he made sure he enjoyed this special moment. "There's so many memories. I've thrown some shutouts here and I've also thrown some champagne on the field," the 32-year-old said. "The fans were great tonight to me, welcoming me back, and that's always a great feeling."

Analysis: Shields allowed eight runs - seven of them earned - on 12 hits, a walk and a hit batter in 6 1-3 innings. It was the worst outing for the Royals ace since last September, when Shields allowed 10 runs in another lousy start against the Tigers. "I threw some good pitches," he said.
