Reds Targeting Shields Over Jimenez

The Reds are targeting James Shields over Ubaldo Jimenez, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.  Rosenthal says it's still unlikely the Rays trade Shields, "but the Reds are deep enough in prospects that they at least stand a chance."

Yesterday, ESPN's Jayson Stark reported that the Rays have "basically taken [Shields] off the market," for July and the offseason.  The 29-year-old ranks fourth in the AL with a 2.53 ERA and can be under contract through 2014.
