Shields will start Tuesday's AL wild-card game against the Athletics, Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star reports.
Shields was expected to start this game, so no surprises here. He will face Jon Lester in Kansas City for the chance to move into the ALDS against the Angels. Shields owns a 14-8 record with a 3.41 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 180 strikeouts over 227 innings heading into the postseason.
