Royals general manager Dayton Moore said Monday that he is still monitoring James Shields' free agency but does not expect to re-sign the right-hander.
Kansas City is near its payroll limit and will carry six good rotation candidates into camp between Yordano Ventura, Jason Vargas, Jeremy Guthrie, Edinson Volquez, Danny Duffy, and Kris Medlen. Shields has probably begun lowering his asking price here in late January, but he's doubtful to fall into a logical range for the Royals. The 33-year-old has been connected recently to the Marlins, Diamondbacks, Padres, and Blue Jays. He is the best remaining free agent by far. Jan 26 - 10:37 AM
