Tampa Bay Rays Trade Speculation: Who Could Team Get for James Shields?

James Shields of the Tampa Bay Rays has become one of the more talked about names as the MLB trade-dealine approaches—and for good reason. 

Shields has seven complete games for the Rays on the year, with a 2.53 ERA. The Rays could be reluctant to trade away their best pitcher next to David Price, but for the right price Tampa Bay would be silly not to listen to offers, and maybe pull the trigger on Shields.

These three teams could all offer the Tampa Bay Rays a nice package deal centering around young prospects, something that Tampa Bay thrives to build around.

Shields is under contract until 2014, so the Rays will be reluctant to trade their man—but for the right guys, it could be a smart move for Tampa Bay to trade him while his stock is at an all-time high.
