Travis 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. Fantasy owner should keep an eye on updates regarding Shaw's return.
The Blue Jays placed Travis Shaw on Family Medical Leave.
There's no word yet on when he'll return. Billy McKinney was added to the taxi squad for now.
Travis Shaw went 1-for-4 at the plate and scored a run as the Blue Jays beat the Rays on Opening Day by a 6-4 score.
Shaw will be the primary third baseman for the Jays this season as the team moved Vladamir Guerrero to first. The veteran slugger will look to bounce back from a disappointing 2019 when he hit just .157 in 86 games.
Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo says Travis shaw (groin) might not be able to play the field right when the regular season begins.
Shaw has been dealing with some groin soreness but would still be able to serve as the team's designated hitter. Montoyo added that Joe Panik will fill in for Shaw if he can't go, as opposed to Vladimir Guerrero Jr. shifting back over to the hot corner. The current plan is for Vladito to focus solely on first base.
Travis Shaw has a sore groin and is considered day-to-day, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Shaw has been held out of action the last couple of days due to the injury, but he apparently felt good when running the bases on Tuesday. The veteran slugger is slated to play third base for the Jays this season and is worth picking up in deeper fantasy leagues for owners needing some power.
