Travis Shaw just got non-tendered by the Brewers. This was a little surprising since Moustakas, the Brewers 3B, just got signed by the Reds today. I figured that Shaw, at ~$4.5M would be a reasonable risk for the Brewers given he is their best 3B option right now (and figuring that there is no way he is as bad as he played last year).

I wouldn't mind if the Indians looked at him and considered moving Rameriz to second. I really think Shaw is a solid player and, even if he falls off from his 2016-17 peak, he still can give some power and be an average 3B.

It looks like Travis Shaw is going to land in Toronto with plans to be their starting 1B. He will be signed for $4M guaranteed with up to $0.75M in incentives. Basically, he'll be getting very close to the same he got in 2019.

I'm a little surprised because I think Shaw has the most value at 3B and the Jays have Guerrero at third, but the Jays lost their 1B and Rowdy Tellez doesn't look like a player you want in the field if it can be avoided. Also, since the Jays are in rebuilding mode, Shaw becomes a potential trade piece if he comes back to his 17-18 form.

He’s motivated and of course will be out to prove doubters wrong; I wish Cleveland wouldn’t signed him for 3B and bumped Ramirez over to 2B.

I doubt Shaw wasn't motivated last year. He started off bad and never could get it going. I don't think that he can really handle being a part time player, so, when he lost his starting job, it just continued. He hit very well at AAA, but when he returned, he just didn't get at-bats.

Sometimes you lose your stroke and things don't go well. I remember having some bad slumps when I played in high school and just thinking as I go up to the plate that nothing good in going to happen. I don't know if pros have the same issues, but I would assume so.

A fresh start will help and the Jays probably won't contend this year (though they just signed Ryu). We'll have to see. I agree, I wish the Indians had signed him though. Even with both other pro teams in Cleveland stinking up the joint, Dolan is doing nothing to win back interest of the fans.
