Shaw could figure into the mix as the team's closer following the release of Chris Perez, MLB.com reports. "Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw are two guys, specifically, who have demonstrated the attributes you're looking for in a closer," general manager Chris Antonetti said. "So I'm confident that one of those two guys could potentially do that role, if we get to spring training and we feel that's the best alignment."

2014

2013

When Shaw earned a pair of saves in April, he opened the eyes of owners in deeper leagues as a potential option on days where J.J. Putz and David Hernandez needed rest. Unfortunately for those who took the bait, the situation never arose again. Shaw relies heavily on his cutter, a pitch that opposing hitters pound into the ground frequently despite seeing it more than 80 percent of the time. If his results the last three years between Arizona and the upper levels of the minors are any indication, the strikeout rate has a modest ceiling here, but Shaw has the ability to remain a viable option in middle relief as long as he's able to curtail his free passes (3.6 BB/9). He is now set to ply his trade in Cleveland after being included in the trade that sent shortstop prospect Didi Gregorious to the D-Backs in December.

2012

Shaw likely parlayed his debut with the D-Backs into a job for 2012. Upon returning to Arizona in July after five appearances in June, Shaw posted a 20:5 K:BB over 24 innings before delivering four scoreless frames against the Brewers in the NLDS. Working mostly with a four-seam fastball, slider and change-up, Shaw might be able to carve out the role of seventh-inning setup man and join David Hernandez in the regular bridge to closer J.J. Putz this season.
