Manager Bruce Bochy said he expects Shaw (shoulder) to begin next season with Triple-A Sacramento, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Bochy noted that he believes Shaw is getting close to making his big-league debut. The 24-year-old held his own following a promotion to Triple-A in May last year, hitting .289/.328/.530 with 18 homers and 50 RBI in 88 games. He's one of the team's top prospects and should make his debut later in 2018 if he continues to perform well in the upper minors.
Shaw is currently on the shelf with a shoulder injury at the Arizona Fall League, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Shaw has played in five games during the AFL thus far, going 3-for-19 at the plate with three walks. Although he's dealing with a minor shoulder ailment, this shouldn't have an effect on his status for the upcoming season, barring any significant setback.
Shaw is slashing .299/.322/.549 in 37 games since being promoted to Triple-A Sacramento on May 24.
The slugging outfielder has nearly produced identical numbers following his promotion to that of his time with Double-A Richmond (.301/.390/.511 in 37 games). Giants general manager Bobby Evans stated that a 2017 appearance in the majors is unlikely because Shaw isn't required to be placed on the 40-man roster until next season, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. That said, he didn't rule out a possible promotion if his bat forces the issue. The 2015 first-round draft pick is trending in the right direction offensively, making him an appealing asset in dynasty formats.
Shaw has been promoted to Triple-A Sacramento.
Shaw has been on fire for Double-A Richmond, slashing .301/.390/.511 with six home runs and 29 RBI. Despite being drafted as a first baseman, the 23-year-old has played a good amount of left field this season, suggesting a possible call-up if his offensive surge can continue at the next level.
