Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is not starting Wednesday against the Braves.

Shaw will remain on the bench Wednesday with the Blue Jays facing another southpaw in Sean Newcomb. Brandon Drury is starting at the hot corner in his place.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Not in Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw isn't in the lineup Tuesday against Atlanta.

Shaw was activated from the Family Medical Leave list Tuesday, but he'll play a bench role in his first game back with the team. Brandon Drury will start at third base in his absence, batting eighth.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Back from personal leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays activated Shaw (personal) from the Family Medical Leave list Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

After leaving the team last week to address a family matter, Shaw joined the club in Atlanta in advance of Tuesday's series opener with the Braves and cleared his COVID-19 intake testing. Expect Shaw to immediately settle back in as the team's everyday third baseman against right-handed pitching, leaving fewer reps available for Brandon Drury.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Should return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw (personal) is expected to return for next week's series against Atlanta, which begins Tuesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Shaw remains away from the team on the Family Medical Leave list and will have to go through an intake process upon his return. If he does indeed return Tuesday, he won't wind up missing any more games, as the Blue Jays' weekend series against the Phillies was postponed due to the possibility of the Phillies being affected by the Marlins' coronavirus outbreak.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Absent for family matter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is away from the Blue Jays due to a family matter, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Shaw's absence explains why he wasn't in the lineup Sunday or Monday. He was placed on the Family Medical Leave list Monday, and it's not yet clear when he's expected to return. Brandon Drury got the nod at third base Sunday, with Joe Panik filling in Monday.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is not starting Monday against the Nationals.

Shaw started both of the season's first two games, getting the nod against both a righty and a lefty. He sat against southpaw Blake Snell on Sunday and remains on the bench against righty Anibal Sanchez on Monday. Joe Panik starts at the hot corner in his absence.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is not in the lineup Sunday against the Rays.

Shaw started the first two games of the season (one at first base and one at third base) and went 2-for-6 with a double, a run scored and two walks, but he'll take a seat Sunday with southpaw Blake Snell on the mound for Tampa Bay. Brandon Drury (undisclosed) comes off the injured list to start at the hot corner, while Vladimir Guerrero returns to first base.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Working as DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw (groin) will serve as the designated hitter in Wednesday's intrasquad game, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Shaw has been sidelined recently due to a groin issue, though his availability on offense in Wednesday's scrimmage suggests he isn't nursing anything overly serious. Provided he's healthy, Shaw is expected to work as Toronto's primary third baseman while Vladimir Guerrero makes the move to first base.

Blue Jays' Travis Shaw: Battling groin soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw has a sore groin and is considered day-to-day, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The 30-year-old has been held out of action the last couple days due to the injury, but he apparently felt good when running the bases Tuesday. Shaw is expected to work as Toronto's primary third baseman this season while Vladimir Guerrero makes the move to first base.

July 11, 2020 11:24 AM
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.

September 2, 2019 02:12 PM
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.

August 10, 2019 08:52 AM
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.

July 26, 2019 04:52 PM
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.
