The reliever gave up a hit in the ninth, but struck out a batter and needed 19 pitches to get out of the inning. His ERA is 2.08.
Holland has saves in five of his last six appearances with a win mixed in between. He rebounded after allowing a run in a save in his last outing at Tampa Bay Sunday.
Shields left the game tied at one run apiece and settled for a no-decision. His record remains 2-6 despite a solid 2.72 ERA.
Shields gave up just a Carlos Santana solo homer in the sixth inning over 111 pitches and six solid frames. He gave up four hits total with four walks and five strikeouts.
Shields has gone 0-4 since his last win on April 30 against Tampa Bay. That said, he's given up two or fewer runs in four straight outings. Shields will look for a win in his next turn Sunday against the White Sox.
Paulino's issue surfaced after beginning his rehab assignment with Double-A Northwest Arkansas last week. He skipped his scheduled start Sunday as a precaution. He could be back Wednesday.
"We want to see him have a good side session and a functional return on fielding his position," trainer Nick Kenney said, "for us to feel comfortable with him pitching on Wednesday."
Paulino, 29, worked five scoreless frames on June 11 against Arkansas.
