(AUDIO) James Shields Exclusive Interview With Rich Herrera

Rich Herrera has James Shields on the Hooters hotline in an Exclusive Interview to discuss the blockbuster trade with the Roylas that sent the fan favorite to Kansas City for four minor league prospects, including OF Wil Myers.

Shields, who turns 31 this month, owns a career 87-73 record and 3.89 ERA and is the Rays all-time leader in wins (87), starts (217), innings pitched (1,454.2), strikeouts (1,250), complete games (19) and shutouts (eight). The seven-year veteran has made a club-record four Opening Day starts (2008-10, 2012). In 2012, he went 15-10 with a 3.52 ERA (227.2-IP, 89-ER) and ranked third in the American League in innings pitched and fourth with 223 strikeouts. It was his sixth consecutive season of at least 200 innings—only Mark Buehrle of the Toronto Blue Jays has a longer active streak (12). In his final start for the Rays, on October 2 vs. the Baltimore Orioles, Shields collected a club-record 15 strikeouts in a complete-game two-hitter with no walks but sustained a 1-0 loss. In 2011, he was named an AL All-Star via player balloting and finished third in the AL Cy Young Award race. Shields was selected by the Rays in the 16th round of the 2000 June Draft.
