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.
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.
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.
Shaw (6-6) pitched a perfect inning and earned the win Sunday versus Boston.
The right-hander worked in the eighth inning, and Cleveland rallied ahead after Shaw kept the deficit to one run. The 33-year-old has yielded five runs in 13.1 innings in August, but he's kept a scoreless line in 13 of his 15 appearances this month. For the season, he owns a 3.30 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 62:32 K:BB in 60 innings. Shaw has also notched two saves and 17 holds, and he could become the setup man to closer Emmanuel Clase after James Karinchak was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.
Shaw (5-6) was tagged with the loss in relief Saturday against the Tigers after allowing two runs on three hits and a walk across one-third of an inning, fanning one.
Shaw pitched the eighth but wasn't effective, as he loaded the bases and gave up two runs before recording an out. This woeful performance ended a streak of seven straight scoreless outings for the right-hander.
Shaw (5-5) allowed a hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning to earn the win Sunday versus Detroit.
The right-hander worked the seventh inning, and he was the beneficiary of Cleveland pulling ahead on a two-run blast by Bradley Zimmer in the home half of the inning. Shaw has allowed just one hit, one walk and a hit batter in his last four innings, adding a pair of wins in that span. He's posted a 3.02 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 57:30 K:BB through 50.2 innings, while his two saves and 14 holds show that he's trusted in high-leverage situations.
Shaw (4-5) allowed a walk and struck out two in a scoreless inning to earn the win in Monday's game versus Toronto.
The 33-year-old did his job in the ninth inning, keeping the game tied before Cleveland's offense rallied for three runs in the top of the 10th. Shaw had allowed six runs (four earned) in his previous 5.1 innings, so it was encouraging to see him put in a strong appearance. He owns a 3.21 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 55:30 K:BB across 47.2 innings this season. The right-hander remains a late-inning option for Cleveland despite his troubling lack of control. He's collected 14 holds and a pair of saves.
Shaw (3-5) allowed two runs on three hits in one inning, taking the loss versus St. Louis on Tuesday.
After a quality start from Cal Quantrill, Shaw made a mess in the seventh inning by allowing a two-run home run to Paul DeJong. That was enough for the reliever to take his second loss in his last three outings. Shaw has allowed five home runs in 45.1 innings this year while pitching to a 3.18 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 53:29 K:BB. He's added two saves, four blown saves and 14 holds in 46 appearances.
Shaw (3-4) allowed an unearned run on two hits in one inning, taking the loss versus Tampa Bay on Thursday.
Shaw may have been lucky to limit the damage to one run, but Cleveland wasn't able to even the score in its half of the 10th inning. The 33-year-old has had an adventurous last few outings, racking up one save, two holds, a blown save, a win and a loss in his last five appearances. He owns a 2.91 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 53:29 K:BB through 43.1 innings. The right-hander could see more high-leverage work if James Karinchak and Emmanuel Clase continue to struggle as they have for much of July.
Shaw (3-3) allowed one earned run on two hits while striking out one across one inning, getting the win over the Astros on Wednesday.
Shaw entered the sixth inning with a two-run lead and a runner on second. He allowed a double to Jose Altuve and surrendered another single in the inning to tie the game. Cleveland took the lead back in the seventh to give Shaw the win. The 33-year-old allowed a run for just the third time over his last 13 appearances. During that stretch, he has a 1.91 ERA and 18 strikeouts over 14.1 innings. This season, he has a 2.98 ERA and a 11.3 K/9 in 42.1 innings.
Shaw fired a perfect ninth inning, striking out one to earn the save in the win over the Athletics on Sunday.
Shaw retired the side in the ninth inning and struck out Mitch Moreland to end the game. He doesn't normally receive save opportunities, but Emmanuel Clase and James Karinchak were unavailable after pitching the previous two games. Shaw has a 1.37 ERA and 17 strikeouts over 13.1 innings covering his last 12 appearances. For the season, he has a 2.83 ERA and a 11.3 K/9 in 41.1 innings. He is 2-for-4 in save opportunities.
Shaw (2-3) took the loss in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus Detroit. He allowed a run on two hits and a walk with two strikeouts in one inning.
It was a back-and-forth game for four innings before Detroit took control in the fifth. Shaw's loss came on the RBI single he surrendered to Harold Castro. The right-hander had a shaky June, posting a 1-3 record, two blown saves, four holds and a 6.94 ERA across 11.2 innings. He had only given up three runs across 20.2 innings in the first two months of the season. With little chance of unseating James Karinchak or Emmanuel Clase for save chances, Shaw's usefulness in fantasy remains limited.
Shaw (2-2) allowed a hit and struck out two over 1.1 innings to earn the win versus the Cubs on Monday.
Starter Aaron Civale (finger) left the game with two outs in the fifth inning, making him ineligible for the win. Shaw replaced him in the contest, and he picked up his second win of the year. It was a good bounce-back outing for Shaw, who was rocked for four runs on a hit and three walks while failing to record an out Saturday versus Pittsburgh. The veteran reliever has a 3.38 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 37:24 K:BB across 29.1 innings. He's also logged a save and 10 holds, so he's often seen high-leverage work in 2021.
Shaw (1-2) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Pirates after allowing four runs on one hit and three walks. He didn't record an out before being lifted.
Shaw had his worst performance of the season Saturday, as he was unable to retire any of the four batters he faced before being lifted. He walked Ben Gamel and Kevin Newman before allowing a three-run shot to Michael Perez, and then he walked Ka'ai Tom before departing the contest. The right-hander has allowed at least one run in three straight appearances and his ERA has ballooned up to 3.54 as a result.
Shaw gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits and struck out three in one inning to earn a hold in Wednesday's 8-7 win over Baltimore.
Shaw allowed just three runs over 20.2 innings in the first two months of the season. He's already given up five runs (four earned) across 7.1 innings in June. The right-hander nearly gave up the lead in the seventh inning Wednesday, but he was able to strike out Pedro Severino and Anthony Santander (ankle) for the final two outs with two runners aboard. For the year, Shaw has a 2.25 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 35:21 K:BB across 28 innings, but his performance is trending in the wrong direction. He'll need to work on trimming down his walk rate of 6.8 BB/9 to have more effective performances.
Shaw (1-1) allowed two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out one in one inning to take the loss against the Orioles on Friday.
Shaw had tossed 9.1 scoreless innings across his last 11 relief appearances, but he was slightly less effective Friday and was charged with his first loss of the season. The right-hander has now posted a 1.99 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 22.2 innings across 24 appearances in 2021.
Shaw allowed a hit and a walk with one strikeout in a scoreless inning to earn a hold in Thursday's 5-2 win over Detroit.
Shaw handled the eighth inning and worked around a couple of baserunners to preserve Cleveland's lead. The 33-year-old remains a solid option out of the bullpen with a 1.35 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 23:14 K:BB across 20 innings. He's notched seven holds, a save and a win in 21 outings, although the closer job appears to be shared between James Karinchak and Emmanuel Clase.
Shaw pitched a perfect eighth inning with two strikeouts to earn a hold in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Angels.
Shaw relieved starter Zach Plesac and protected a one-run lead before James Karinchak entered to close it out. The 33-year-old Shaw has emerged as an effective late-inning option with a 1.69 ERA and 0.88 WHIP. He's only allowed four hits in 16 innings, leading to an unsustainable BABIP of .091 -- eventually, a higher rate of hits are bound to get through Cleveland's defense. He's logged five holds, a save and a win.
Shaw recorded the final out of Thursday's 4-2 win against Seattle via strikeout to record the save.
This was a high-leverage situation as Shaw entered with the bases loaded and two out but dispatched Luis Torrens on four pitches to complete the save. Shaw is one of manager Terry Francona's go-to relievers, evidenced by a superb 1.93 ERA, but don't expect abundant saves with Emmanuel Clase and James Karinchak being the main guys for the ninth inning.
Shaw pitched 1.1 perfect innings with a strikeout to earn a hold in Sunday's 5-0 win over the White Sox.
Shaw successfully protected Cleveland's 2-0 lead, and the offense added three more runs in the top of the seventh inning. The 33-year-old reliever has become an integral part of the bullpen this season. He has a tiny 0.79 ERA and 0.71 WHIP across 11.1 innings, and he's earned four holds in 11 outings.
