Good morning baseball fans!
The White Sox and Padres agreed to a deal Saturday afternoon that sent veteran starter James Shields to Chicago:
Shields has been rumored as a White Sox' target for about a week, and will join a rotation of Chris Sale, Jose Quintana and Carlos Rodon. Chicago has been looking for an upgrade over Mat Latos and Miguel Gonzalez at the back of its rotation after releasing John Danks last month.
Shields, 34, has posted a 2-7 record and 4.28 ERA in 11 starts so far this season.
New York placed Mark Teixeira on the disabled list and he might be out for an extended period if he opts to undergo surgery:
The Yankees are depending on Teixeira to produce, but he's yet to be as consistent as he was last season, when he batted .255/.357/.548 to complement 31 home runs and 79 RBIs over 111 contests.
San Francisco is interested in acquiring Andrew Miller:

San Diego wasn't very open to moving one of its lefties:
By the way, the Padres likely would have to be overwhelmed to move Drew Pomeranz. Not many good young LHPs, do have to field a '17 rotation.— Dennis Lin (@sdutdennislin) June 4, 2016
Milwaukee returned its Rule 5 draft pick:
