Travis Shaw (wrist) placed on 10-day injured list

The Brewers have placed Travis Shaw on the 10-day injured list with a right wrist strain.

Fantasy Impact

This is actually good news for Shaw owners, as it was reported earlier in the day that Shaw could be sent to Triple-A. Now owners can at least stash Shaw on their IL slot if they have one open. Shaw has had an historically terrible start to the season and, with Keston Hiura caled up to the majors, Shaw's time as a regular may be at an end. If it costs you anything at all to hold him, feel free to move on.

Travis Shaw likely headed to IL or Triple-A

Brewers infielder Travis Shaw "appears headed to injured list (hand/wrist) or Triple-A" with the promotion of top prospect Keston Hiura according to a report from MLB insider Ken Rosenthal.

Fantasy Impact

Shaw just sat out for three games over the weekend as the team faced a series of left-handers, and he is batting just .163 on the season. He has already lost playing time to utility man Hernan Perez, and the Brewers are clearly looking for more production by promoting Keston Hiura to the big league squad. A corresponding move for Hiura has not yet been announced, but it sounds like Shaw could be headed for a demotion or a stint on the injured list. The move should become known prior to the team's game against the Phillies tonight.

Travis Shaw goes 0-for-7 in extra inning win Saturday

Travis Shaw went 0-for-7 with a walk in the Brewers' 4-3 extra innings win over the Mets on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

This one hurts the old batting average, and Shaw is now down to a .177 mark on the year. On one hand, many fantasy owners must be reaching the end of their rope with Shaw, and for good reason. Not only have his surface stats been horrible, but he's striking out a career-high 30.7% of the time and his contact rate has dipped by nearly 14% to a pitiful 67.5% clip. When we're still early in the season, drastic changes in strikeout rate and contact rate can be some of the most important numbers to watch, and Shaw's look terrible. On the other hand, he's still got a 20-degree average launch angle and 39% hard hit rate, so he should be getting better results when making contact. This is a true buy-low, because there is legitimate reason to be concerned, but Shaw's track record and solid batted ball profile (outside of contact rate) indicate that he should be getting better results on batted balls. He's dirt cheap, so buy while you can and accept the risk.

Travis Shaw absent from Monday's lineup

Travis Shaw is not in Monday's lineup versus the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Shaw will take a seat on the bench versus southpaw Kyle Freeland. The 29-year-old is off to a slow start this year, batting under .200 with a measly .634 OPS.

Travis Shaw out of the lineup on Sunday

Travis Shaw is not in the Brewers' lineup on Sunday against the Mets. Mike Moustakas will move over to third base while Hernan Perez takes over at second.

Fantasy Impact

Shaw, who remains in a season-long slump, will get a day of rest against lefty Steven Matz. Expect him back in the lineup tomorrow against the Rockies.
