James Shields will not exercise the opt-out clause in his contract, per SB Nation's Chris Cotillo.
An easy decision for Shields, who is owed $21 million each of the next two seasons with a $16 million club option (or $2 million buyout) for 2019. The veteran right-hander posted brutal 6-19 record, 5.85 ERA, and 1.60 WHIP across 33 starts in 2016 while earning $21 million -- $16 million of it paid by the Padres. San Diego is still on the hook for another $22 million of the $44 million Shields is still owed. Shields will turn 35 years old in December. Thu, Oct 27, 2016 01:39:00 PM
