  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Picks up sixth win

    Shaw (6-2) retired the only batter he faced to earn the win Wednesday over the Tigers.

    Shaw ended a threat after James Karinchak left with runners on the corners and two out. The Guardians' offense took over from there, posting a six-run rally in the bottom of the eighth inning to give Shaw his third win in his last 11 outings. The veteran reliever has allowed eight runs across 14.1 innings in that span, and for the season, he owns a 5.36 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, 38:21 K:BB, one save and six holds through 43.2 frames.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Tallies first save

    Shaw struck out two and threw a scoreless 10th inning to earn the save Thursday against the Tigers.

    Emmanuel Clase was unavailable to pitch after taking the mound in four of Cleveland's last five games. That gave Shaw the chance to earn his first save of the season. Shaw has a 5.10 ERA across 42.1 innings this season and has surrendered nine earned runs across his last 14 frames.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Credited with win

    Shaw (5-2) struck out two in a perfect inning to earn the win Wednesday over the Tigers.

    Starter Aaron Civale lasted four innings in his return from a wrist injury, while Shaw was credited with the win for his clean sixth inning. After allowing multiple runs in his last three appearances in July, Shaw has rebounded to begin August with three consecutive scoreless outings. The veteran reliever has a 5.23 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, 34:21 K:BB and six holds across 41.1 innings this year, and his inconsistency has kept him relegated to a low-leverage role.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Yields two runs again

    Shaw allowed two runs on two hits and three walks with one strikeout in two innings against the Rays on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Shaw has made his last two appearances as an opener ahead of Kirk McCarty, to mixed results. Shaw's given up a pair of runs in each of his last three outings and continues to struggle through the middle part of the season. The right-hander owns a 5.63 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 31:20 K:BB through 38.1 innings in 41 appearances. If he continues to function as an opener going forward, the role will reduce his chances of picking up wins and holds.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Gets another turn as opener

    Shaw is listed as the Guardians' starting pitcher for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    While making his first start in 733 MLB appearances in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox, Shaw covered 2.1 innings, so he's likely to work more than a traditional opener while he picks up his second start of the week. Even so, Shaw probably shouldn't be expected to work any more than 3-to-4 innings, so he'll have a tough time qualifying for the win unless the Guardians race out to an early lead and maintain it throughout. Kirk McCarty is the primary option to work in long relief behind Shaw and is a likelier candidate to factor into any decision.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Surrenders two runs in start

    Shaw pitched 2.1 innings, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out two in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox. He did not factor in the decision.

    Shaw made his first career "start" Tuesday, serving as an opener for primary pitcher Kirk McCarty. The right-hander pitched two clean innings before allowing three runners to reach base and a run to score before being replaced on the mound. Another run he was responsible for would come around to score after he exited the contest. Shaw has now allowed four runs on four hit and three walks over four frames his last two appearances. Since the beginning of July, the 34-year-old has seen his ERA rise from 5.11 to 5.45.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Slated to open Tuesday's game

    Guardians manager Terry Francona said Shaw will serve as the team's opening pitcher in Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    The 34-year-old will be making his first big-league "start" after coming out of the bullpen for the first 732 appearances of his career. Since he hasn't tossed more than two innings at any point in 2022, Shaw is unlikely to make it even once through the order before Francona turns the game over to the bullpen. Meisel posits that Kirk McCarty will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus to serve as a primary pitcher behind Shaw.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Charged with second loss

    Shaw (4-2) took the loss in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the White Sox. He allowed two runs on a hit and two walks with one strikeout in 1.2 innings.

    Shaw was responsible for both runners aboard in the eighth inning, and Nick Sandlin took a blown save when he allowed them to score on an AJ Pollock two-run single. This was the fourth time in Shaw's last 10 appearances that he's allowed multiple runs. He now has a 5.29 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 28:16 K:BB with four holds through 34 innings in 39 appearances.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Collects win Friday

    Shaw (4-1) allowed one hit across two scoreless innings to pick up the win Friday over the Tigers.

    Shaw entered Friday having allowed five runs (four earned) in his last 3.2 innings. He was able to keep the Guardians' deficit to one run, and they pulled ahead in the bottom of the seventh to put the veteran reliever in line for the win. This was Shaw's first win since June 15, and he's struggled by allowing at least one run in six of his last nine appearances. The right-hander has a 5.17 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 26:14 K:BB while adding four holds in 31.1 innings in 37 outings this season. Given his recent struggles, he'll likely continue to see middle-relief assignments.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Takes first loss

    Shaw (3-1) allowed three runs on two hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss Friday versus the Red Sox.

    Shaw worked in the seventh inning, but he allowed a two-run home run to Christian Arroyo and then put J.D. Martinez on base with a two-out single. Anthony Gose allowed the inherited runner to score, and the Guardians were unable to get Shaw off the hook as the veteran reliever took his first loss of the season. He's allowed four runs in his last three appearances since the end of his 8.2-inning scoreless streak. The 34-year-old has a 4.70 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 18:12 K:BB across 23 innings overall, and he's added four holds in 30 appearances. Given his recent shakiness, he could start to relinquish some of the high-leverage opportunities he'd earned earlier in the month.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Awarded win

    Shaw (3-0) earned the win Wednesday over the Rockies. He struck out one in a perfect inning.

    Shaw pitched in the eighth inning, but he was deemed the most effective of four Guardians relievers between starter Konnor Pilkington and closer Emmanuel Clase. This was Shaw's second win in as many outings after he picked up just one victory in the first two months of the campaign. He's at a 3.38 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB across 21.1 innings in 27 appearances overall. The 34-year-old extended his scoreless streak to 8.2 innings, as he's been in a groove lately.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Snags win Tuesday

    Shaw (2-0) walked one and struck out one in a scoreless inning, earning the win Tuesday versus the Rockies.

    Shaw pitched the ninth inning with the game tied 3-3, and he kept it that way. The 34-year-old then ended up in line for the win when the Guardians pulled ahead in the 10th inning, and Emmanuel Clase was able to protect the one-run lead. Shaw's scoreless streak is up to 7.2 innings in his last nine appearances. He's allowed four hits and five walks with 10 strikeouts in that span. For the season, the veteran reliever has a 3.54 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 17:10 K:BB and three holds through 20.1 innings.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Quietly steady

    Shaw has not allowed a run in his last eight appearances spanning 6.2 innings.

    In that stretch, he's logged a 9:4 K:BB while allowing four hits. Shaw has just three holds on the year and none since May 5, so he's not in the mix for much high-leverage work. He's done well in a less glamorous role, posting a 3.72 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB across 19.1 innings overall, serving as a trusty veteran in a bullpen not lacking for solid pitching. The Guardians' 2.98 bullpen ERA as a team ranks fourth-best in the majors.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Pitches scoreless inning

    Shaw allowed a hit and struck out three in a scoreless inning during Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Astros.

    Shaw's season numbers are skewed by one bad outing -- he allowed five runs without recording an out May 13 versus the White Sox. He's only allowed three other runs in the rest of his 17 appearances this season, but that one meltdown puts him at a 5.27 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 10:5 K:BB across 13.2 innings. The 34-year-old right-hander has added a 1-0 record and three holds, though he's not likely to see save chances all that frequently.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Nabs win Sunday

    Shaw (1-0) pitched a perfect inning to earn the win Sunday versus the Blue Jays.

    Shaw kept the Guardians within a run in the eighth inning, and they took the lead in the bottom half of the frame. The 34-year-old reliever has been solid this year, posting a 1.80 ERA and 1.10 WHIP across 10 innings in 13 appearances. He's yet to allow a home run after surrendering 10 long balls in 81 appearances last season. Shaw has added three holds, though it's unlikely he'll challenge Emmanuel Clase for the closer job.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Clean inning Wednesday

    Shaw pitched a perfect inning in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the White Sox.

    Shaw worked the seventh inning after starter Shane Bieber tossed six innings of one-run ball. This was the first time in five outings Shaw has been tasked with a full inning of work, and he's allowed just one run, two hits and three walks with two strikeouts across 2.2 innings this season. In 2021, he picked up a 6-7 record, 20 holds, two saves and six blown saves, but the 34-year-old's not currently part of the Guardians' late-inning mix.

  • Guardians' Bryan Shaw: Back with Guardians

    Shaw signed a contract with the Guardians on Wednesday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Shaw spent the 2021 season with Cleveland, appearing in 81 games and posting a 3.49 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over 77.1 innings. The veteran reliever converted two out of eight save opportunities while also recording 20 holds on the season. His 6-7 record and 71:38 strikeout to walk ratio from last season along with his inability to close games makes him an unattractive bullpen option.

  • Indians' Bryan Shaw: Logs 20th hold

    Shaw recorded a perfect inning and earned a hold in Monday's 8-3 win over Kansas City.

    This is the fifth season in which Shaw has picked up 20 holds, although it's his first such campaign since 2017. The right-hander has pitched to a 3.48 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 69:36 K:BB across 75 innings this season, often working in high-leverage spots. While he's had some struggles in September, he's now pitched 3.2 consecutive scoreless innings in his last four games.

  • Indians' Bryan Shaw: Unsteady in September

    Shaw allowed a run on two hits and struck out one in one inning during Saturday's 11-3 win over the Yankees.

    The right-hander has given up six runs across 10.1 innings with a 7:4 K:BB in nine appearances in September. Entering the month, he had a 3.30 ERA, but it's ticked up to 3.58 after this recent run of inconsistency in which he's allowed runs in four of nine appearances. On the season, Shaw has posted a 1.41 WHIP and 69:36 K:BB with a 6-7 record, two saves, 18 holds and five blown saves through 72 appearances, but he's unlikely to serve as much more than a setup man to closer Emmanuel Clase.

  • Indians' Bryan Shaw: Takes seventh loss

    Shaw (6-7) allowed one run on one hit and one walk through 1.1 innings, taking the loss in Saturday's 4-3 defeat to the Red Sox.

    Shaw worked a snappy eighth inning before conceding a base hit to Travis Shaw (unrelated), who would eventually come around to score the winning run for Boston. While this outing does break the right-hander's streak of four straight scoreless appearances, there's no sign that Cleveland will be removing high-leverage duty from his plate anytime soon.
