I really need some starting pitching depth.

2b - Jason Kipnis
3b - Evan Longoria
SS - Corey Seager
2b/ss - Francisco Lindor
1b/3b - Justin Smoak
LF - Ian Happ
CF - George Springer
RF - Aaron Judge
UTIL - Xander Bogaerts
UTIL - Andrew McCutchen
Bench - Hunter Pence, Manuel Margot, Joe Panik, Freedy Galvis, Didi Gregorious, Victor Robles, Franklin Barreto, Rafeael Devers
DL - Ryan Braun

SP - David Price, Jeff Samardzja, Mike Leake, Tanner Roark, James Paxton, Joe Ross, Eddie Butler, Vince Valasquez, Antonio Senzatela, Brent Honeywell, Ty Blach
RP - AJ Ramos, Neftali Feliz, Chris Devenski

I don't see how Lewis adds to your SP depth... he's a middling option at best. I do like Shields a smidge better than AJ so I'd still make the deal but I guess it depends on your take of AJ vs. Shields.
