Orioles' Chris Shaw: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw cleared waivers Monday and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk, Roch Kubatko of reports.

Shaw spent last season in the Giants' player pool but never made the active roster. He was claimed off waivers by the Orioles in November but went unclaimed this time around, hardly a surprise given that he's a 27-year-old left fielder with a career .153/.244/.222 line in 82 plate appearances at the highest level.

Orioles' Chris Shaw: DFA'd by Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Tuesday, Steve Melewski of reports.

The 26-year-old was claimed off waivers by Baltimore in late November, but he was cleared from the 40-man roster Tuesday to clear space for the signing of Freddy Galvis. Shaw figures to be outrighted to Triple-A if he goes unclaimed on waivers this time around.

Orioles' Chris Shaw: Joining Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of reports.

Shaw was cast off the Giants' 40-man roster Friday, but he'll land a 40-man roster spot with Baltimore heading into the 2021 season. The 26-year-old has struggled in limited major-league opportunities and could serve as organizational depth with his new club.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was designated for assignment Friday.

Shaw has essentially mastered Triple-A at this point, but the Giants seem to think he is a Quadruple-A hitter, as he has never been given much of a chance at the big-league level. He will offer organizational depth going forward if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw joined the Giants' 60-man player pool, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

This apparently comes directly from Shaw's personal Instagram account. He was surprisingly left off the original 60-man roster, so we at least know now that he is healthy and still has a chance to carve out a role with the Giants going forward.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

The 25-year-old joined the Giants for the closing stretch last season but went 1-for-18 over 16 games. Shaw had a .298/.355/.592 slash line at Sacramento last year and will look to replicate those numbers in 2020.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Serves as DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw went 0-for-3 as a designated hitter in Tuesday's 7-6 victory over the Red Sox.

The Boston native was granted his first start of the season, but he was lifted after just three plate appearances once a lefty was brought out of the bullpen. The Red Sox have the right-handed Jhoulys Chacin set to take the bump Wednesday, so Shaw could be in the starting nine again with the benefit of the DH spot. The 25-year-old has been used sparsely (1-for-10) since being called up Sept. 1 despite posting a robust .947 OPS over 75 games with Triple-A Sacramento this year.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Recalled by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.

Shaw has split the season between Sacramento and Double-A Richmond, posting a .294/.360/.559 slash line with 28 home runs and 94 RBI. The 25-year-old made his major-league debut last season and had a .552 OPS in 62 plate appearances.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Putting up strong numbers in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw has hit for a combined 18 homers and 62 RBI across two levels in the minors this season.

Shaw slashed .288/.368/.500 in 45 games with Double-A Richmond, and hasn't missed a beat since his promotion to Triple-A Sacramento (.291/.348/.574 in 35 games). The 25-year-old slugger started in Double-A after struggling at Triple-A last season, but he has apparently taken a big step forward in the plate discipline department. The Giants are currently set at first base and left field, so it may take some trades at the deadline to open up a spot for Shaw on the major-league roster.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Moves to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was promoted to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday.

Shaw spend most of the 2018 campaign with Sacramento, hitting .259/.308/.505 with 24 homers and 65 RBI in 101 games for the River Cats. He opened the 2019 season back at Double-A Richmond, where he hit .288/.368/.500 with seven homers and 24 RBI in 45 games before earning a promotion back to Triple-A. Should he continue to succeed at the highest level of the minors, Shaw could get another shot with the big-league club sometime this summer; he struggled in his first taste of the majors last season, hitting .185/.274/.278 in 22 games.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Opening at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw will open the season at Double-A Richmond, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

It was assumed when Shaw was optioned in mid-March that Triple-A Sacramento would be his destination, as he spent the bulk of the last two seasons at that level and hadn't played at Double-A since 2017. There's no immediate apparent reason why he'd be demoted one extra level, but this likely doesn't change his timeline for returning to the big leagues, as the Giants could easily call him up straight from Double-A should they decide he's ready to go.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

Shaw seemed to be competing for a regular role this spring, but he won't get the chance to make an impression at the big-league level right away. He'll head back to prove himself at the Triple-A level, where he owns a .273/.317/.516 slash line with a worryingly high 32.0 percent strikeout rate over 189 games.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Shows off power
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in Friday's win over the Reds.

Shaw's towering shot to right field put the Giants up 5-3 in the eighth inning. The outfielder, who is competing for a starting gig this spring, is now 3-for-13 with a pair of homers and four RBI through six Cactus League games.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Sits versus lefty Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is not in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Shaw will sit for the second day in a row with the Dodgers pitching a second lefty in a row, with today's southpaw being Rich Hill. The 24-year-old wound up producing just a .552 OPS in his late-season opportunities and could end the season with that same lowly figure. Gregor Blanco will slide over to left field to replace him, allowing Gorkys Hernandez to join the outfield fray Sunday.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Out of lineup vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is not in the starting lineup against the Dodgers on Saturday, Kerry Crowley of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Shaw will remain on the bench for a second straight game with another southpaw (Clayton Kershaw) on the bump. Gregor Blanco will start in left field while Gorkys Hernandez gets the nod in center.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Absent from Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is out of the lineup against the Dodgers on Friday, Kerry Crowley of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Shaw will head to the bench with left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu on the mound for Los Angeles. In his place, the right-handed hitting Austin Slater will man left field and bat seventh.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Sits against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Padres, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Shaw will take a seat Tuesday as manager Bruce Bochy stacks right-handed hitters against lefty Robbie Erlin. The rookie is hitting .208/.304/.313 through 19 games with the Giants since earning a promotion at the beginning of September. Austin Slater will start in left field and hit second in his place.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Seeing regular starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw started in left field and went 1-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Padres.

Shaw made his fourth consecutive start, and second against a southpaw. The Giants are finally giving their young slugger a consistent look in left field after benching him in nine of the 14 games since his callup Aug. 31. Shaw is still slashing just .229/.300/.371 over 40 plate appearances in the majors, but his strong power output in the minors (24 homers and .505 slugging percentage) could generate some cheap pop in daily and deep formats.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Doubles twice in three-hit performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw went 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles and a run Monday in the Giants' 4-2 win over the Padres.

After managing just one hit over his first 22 at-bats in the majors, Shaw has now turned in back-to-back multi-hit outings. Prior to getting called up from Triple-A Sacramento at the beginning of the month, the 24-year-old showed some intriguing pop during his time in the minors, clubbing 24 home runs and 21 doubles across 422 plate appearances. He put some of that power potential on display Monday, but Shaw will need to cut down on strikeouts in order to make a consistent impact for the Giants over the final two weeks.

Giants' Chris Shaw: Collects two hits in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw started in left field and went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Rockies.

Shaw has struggled since being called up Aug. 31 (.115/.172/.231 in 29 plate appearances), so Sunday's two-hit game was a big step in the right direction. The 24-year-old had been situated on the bench for seven of the last eight contests, but Brandon Belt's (knee) absence allowed the young slugger to return to the lineup with Austin Slater sliding over to cover first base. It is unclear if the Giants -- who have nothing to play for -- will give Shaw an extended look at some point before the season comes to a close.
