RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Shaw took a small step back from his 2014 campaign, but still did an effective enough job in a setup role for the Indians. While the final numbers are hardly those of a dominant setup man, he managed 74 appearances out of the Cleveland bullpen and the Indians seem content to keep him in that role. Shaw's performance has declined in recent years, and his struggles against right-handed batters in 2015 are particularly troubling (.509 OPS in 2013, .493 OPS in 2014, .704 OPS in 2015). Improvement in that regard would go a long way toward keeping him in the setup role, but Zach McAllister will be waiting in the wings in case Shaw slips up.

2015

Shaw led baseball with 80 appearances and he acquitted himself quite well with a 2.59 ERA, but he has essentially morphed into a ROOGY with a 283-point OPS platoon split. Righties managed just a .493 OPS against him and that kind of performance will keep him employed throughout the remainder of his 20s and well into his 30s if he can keep it up. As a cutter/slider guy, itís easy to understand why lefties have found more success against him and barring the addition of a pitch to neutralize them, it is likely to continue. He has always been good for a strong ERA, but without dominant strikeout rates or chances at saves, he doesnít really hold much attention in fantasy circles, especially since ERAs are remarkably volatile out of the bullpen.

2014

Shaw crafted together a fine season in his first campaign with the Indians, appearing in 70 games out of the bullpen. He doesn't have pinpoint command or a huge strikeout rate, but Shaw may figure into the setup mix along with Cody Allen, following the offseason signing of John Axford to fill the ninth-inning role.

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.
