Updated: August 29, 2017

As the Twins battle for the American League’s second Wild Card spot, they will have to deal with a new-look James Shields on the mound for the White Sox in Tuesday’s series opener at Target Field. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. CT.

Shields has dropped down at times with his arm angle over the past few starts, trying to induce more ground balls. He has produced a 4.15 ERA over his last three trips to the mound, stricking out 20 while walking six and yielding three home runs.
