1B,3B - BOS
Free agent infielder Travis Shaw was claimed off waivers by the Boston Red Sox on Sunday.
Shaw is nearing a return from a dislocated shoulder before being designated for assignment by the Milwaukee Brewers last Friday. The 31-year-old returns to Boston after spending the first two seasons of his career with the Red Sox. He’s struggled in 2021, slashing .191/.279/.337 with six home runs, 28 RBI across 202 plate appearances with the Brewers. Shaw figures to see most of his playing time at first base with franchise cornerstone Rafael Devers locked in at third.
Brewers manager Craig Counsell says Travis Shaw will be heading to the injured list with a dislocated shoulder.
Shaw will undergo testing on Thursday to determine the severity of the injury, but it sounds as if fantasy managers can expect to be without him for a bit. Keston Hiura would be a candidate to be recalled, but Milwaukee might opt to give him more time in Triple-A for now.
