7 211 Arizona Diamondbacks Jeff Shields RHP Ala. $150,000
Shields was a big name coming into the season after flashing plus velocity last year as a closer. Shields gave up playing shortstop this year to focus on pitching and dominated, going 12-1, 1.37 with 92 strikeouts in 85 innings. He's still more about arm strength than pitching, but the 6-foot-3 righty has hit 95 mph and has a solid-average slider, if not a tick above at times.
