Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Expected to play third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is expected to play third base this season with Vladimir Guerrero moving across the diamond to first, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Shaw has primarily been a third baseman throughout his MLB career and has graded out as slightly above average defensively at the position according to both DRS and UZR. He was initially expected to man first base in Toronto, but the team has evidently elected to give up on Guerrero's development at the hot corner and move him to the position which was long thought to be his eventual home. Whether Shaw becomes the Blue Jays' true everyday third baseman remains to be seen, as he'll have to hit far better than the .157/.281/.270 line he managed in 86 games for the Brewers last year if that's to happen.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Struggling to make contact early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw has gone 1-for-11 with a double and a 1:7 BB:K through his first five Grapefruit League games.

After inking a one-year deal with Toronto in December following a rough 2019 campaign in Milwaukee, Shaw acknowledged that he revamped his swing over the winter in an attempt to get his career back on track. The early returns this spring haven't been encouraging, but the Blue Jays should at least give Shaw the opportunity to play regularly against right-handed pitching early in the season with the hope that he can eventually rediscover his pre-2019 form. Shaw has been seeing most of his action this spring at first base, but he should also be in the mix for starts at third base on the occasions manager Charlie Montoyo wants to give Vladimir Guerrero a day out of the field.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Blames struggles on swing change
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw blamed his poor 2019 campaign on a failed swing change Friday, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.

Shaw saw his slash line collapse from .241/.345/.480 in 2018 to .157/.281/.270 last season. His hard-hit rate barely changed, falling from 38.0 percent to 37.9 percent, but his launch angle jumped from 16.6 degrees to 24.4 degrees and his strikeout rate soared from 18.3 percent to 33.0 percent. It's far from guaranteed that Shaw will bounce back with the Blue Jays, but the fact that he can at least point to something concrete does give some reason to believe that his struggles are solvable.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Lands one-year deal with Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Blue Jays on Sunday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

It's not surprising that he settled for a one-year deal, as his age-29 season was easily his worst as a big leaguer. He hit .157/.281/.270 with seven home runs and a career-worst 33 percent strikeout rate -- well above the 18.4 and 22.8 percent rates he logged in 2018 and 2017, respectively. Per Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca, the plan is for Shaw to play almost every day at first base, which leaves Rowdy Tellez to fight for at-bats at designated hitter. Shaw's contract could end up being worth $4.675 million with incentives.

Travis Shaw: Become free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was non-tendered by the Brewers on Monday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

This is a surprising move by Milwaukee, despite the fact that Shaw slashed .157/.281/.270 with seven home runs and 16 RBI over 86 games a season ago. There's a good chance someone will take a flier on Shaw, considering he belted 32 home runs in 2018.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Makes wild-card squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is on the Brewers' roster for Tuesday's National League Wild Card Game in Washington.

It's been a very disappointing season for Shaw, but he still makes the cut as one of the 15 position players the Brewers will carry for the single-elimination contest. The team will likely carry more relievers should it qualify for the NLDS, meaning Shaw could wind up missing the cut for that round.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Hits pinch-hit homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw hit a pinch-hit home run in Monday's victory over the Padres.

Shaw had gone hitless in his first 19 at-bats of the month, but he came through in a big spot Monday, hitting his first home run at the big-league level since June 23. Shaw has been a part-time player since rejoining the Brewers in late August, and given that he has not started a game since Sept. 10, he will almost certainly remain one the rest of the way.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Sitting out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Astros.

Shaw manned third base for the final two games of the weekend series with the Cubs, going 1-for-6 with a walk between those contests. With Mike Moustakas (wrist) cleared to return to the lineup Monday, Shaw will now be forced to fight with Cory Spangenberg for reps at second base while Keston Hiura (hamstring) is on the self. Both Shaw and Spangenberg are left-handed hitters, so a platoon arrangement won't be an option.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Returning to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw will be recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Saturday, Robert Murray of The AthleticH reports.

Both Mike Moustakas (wrist) and Keston Hiura (hamstring) are battling injuries, so the Brewers have elected to promote Shaw from the minors. He's struggled to a .162 average with six homers and 13 RBI this season with Milwaukee.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Heads back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio prior to Friday's game against the Rangers.

Playing time has been tough to come by for Shaw, and he is just 2-for-14 with five strikeouts in the eight games he has played during this most recent stint with the big-league club. Hernan Perez's contract was selected from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Starting at first base in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was officially recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Friday and is starting at first base versus the Cubs.

Shaw slashed .316/.494/.754 with eight homers and a 19:17 BB:K in 18 games with the Missions to earn his way back to the majors, and he'll start at first base Friday for the first time this season. The Cubs have southpaws Jon Lester and Jose Quintana slated to start Saturday and Sunday so Shaw could be headed back to the bench, but more playing time should open up next week at Oakland with the designated hitter spot available.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Returning to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw will be recalled from Triple-A San Antonio, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Shaw is set to rejoin the Brewers ahead of Friday's series opener against the Cubs after spending the past month with San Antonio. In 18 appearances for the Missions, the infielder slashed .316/.494/.754 with eight home runs and a 19:17 BB:K. Despite his success during his stint in the minors, it remains to be seen what role Shaw will fill upon his return to the big club, as Keston Hiura and Mike Moustakas have both played well enough to deserve everyday at-bats. At the very least, Shaw should see time in next week's series in Oakland with the designated hitter spot available.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Heating up at Triple-A level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is 7-for-16 with four home runs, eight RBI and a 3:2 BB:K over his last five games with Triple-A San Antonio.

Shaw was sent down in late June after posting just a .568 OPS over 57 big-league games, and it appears he may be finally getting things going at the plate. He will likely need an extended run of quality at-bats before the Brewers consider calling him up again, but even then the club could opt to wait until September if Mike Moustakas and Keston Hiura keep getting the job done offensively.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was officially optioned to Triple-A on Friday.

Shaw simply has not been able to get things going with the bat this season, so the Brewers decided to send him to Triple-A San Antonio to let him try to get back on track there. With Shaw in the minors, Mike Moustakas and Keston Hiura -- at third base and second base, respectively -- will start regularly for the Brewers. Shaw will be back with the Brewers at some point this season as long as he stays healthy, but given the way Moustakas and Hiura have hit the ball, he will likely fill a reserve role upon his return.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw will be optioned to Triple-A San Antonio, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Shaw has slipped mightily this season, hitting just .164/.278/.290 across 212 plate appearances. It was a surprising fall in performance for Shaw, who hit more than 30 home runs in each of his first two seasons with the Brewers. His demotion clears roster space for top prospect Keston Hiura.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: Sitting again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners.

Shaw will remain on the bench for a second consecutive game with southpaw Wade LeBlanc slated to cover the majority of innings for the Mariners. Mike Moustakas is covering third base in his stead, with Hernan Perez starting at the keystone.

June 25, 2019 04:32 PM
Brewers' Travis Shaw: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is not starting Tuesday against Seattle.

Shaw has hit just .178/.302/.333 since returning from a wrist injury. Mike Moustakas shifts to third base in his absence, with Hernan Perez starting at second.

June 24, 2019 11:32 PM
Brewers' Travis Shaw: Goes yard in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a win over the Reds on Sunday.

Shaw hit a first-pitch fastball from Anthony DeSclafani 465 feet to right field in the third inning. The home run was the longest home run of the season for the Brewers and traveled out of the stadium with a 113 mph exit velocity. Shaw, who has a disappointing .167/.275/.294 slash line through 55 games, will need to keep piling up hits in order to ward off top prospect Keston Hiura.

Brewers' Travis Shaw: On bench again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw remains on the bench against lefty Logan Allen and the Padres on Tuesday.

Shaw has been strictly platooned since returning from a wrist injury. He'll likely sit again Wednesday with Matt Strahm on the mound. As usual, Mike Moustakas slides over to third base, with Hernan Perez starting at second.

June 17, 2019 06:48 PM
Brewers' Travis Shaw: Sitting vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Padres.

Shaw will head to the bench with Joey Lucchesi slated to toe the rubber for San Diego. Mike Moustakas moves to third base, opening up room for Hernan Perez to start at the keystone.
