Red Sox Claim Travis Shaw Off Waivers from the Brewers


The Red Sox have brought back the Mayor of Ding Dong City. Former Brewer Travis Shaw was claimed off waivers by the Red Sox Sunday. Shaw was placed on waivers by the Brewers on Saturday.


This will be Shaw’s second-stint with Boston after being traded to the Brewers back in 2016. Then President of Baseball Ops Dave Dombrowski traded Shaw for reliever Tyler Thornburg and prospects.

During Shaw’s tenure with the Red Sox he played in 210 games with 29 home runs, knocked in 107 RBIs with a slash line of .312/.442/.754. The trade at the time gave the Red Sox a viable piece to the bullpen in Thornburg. 

The Red Sox will add Shaw to their 40-man roster, they will not need to make a corresponding move due to the roster being at 39.

This year with the Brewers, Shaw batted just .191 with a .279 on-base percentage, .337 slugging percentage, six homers, eight doubles, 28 RBIs and 14 runs in 56 games. 

The Mayor of Ding Dong City was a fan favorite during his time in Boston. Shaw will provide the Red Sox depth at the major-league level and a left-handed compliment to the red hot Bobby Dalbec. Shaw can also provide some depth at second and third base for Boston.
