RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Shaw, a ninth-round pick in 2011, struggled to hit for average during his first tour at Double-A Portland in 2013 (.221), but did manage to slug 16 homers while walking 14.7% of the time. Commitment to his approach paid off, as Shaw exploded for a .305/.406/.548 line and 11 homers in just 47 games with Portland to begin 2014, earning a promotion to Triple-A Pawtucket less than two months into the season. Upon joining Pawtucket, Shaw saw his walk rate dip by more than five percent (from 13.9% to 8.1%) and his ISO fall by more than 70 points (from .243 to .169), but he still finished with 29 doubles, 21 homers and 78 RBI for the season. The Red Sox added Shaw to their 40-man roster in November, which may prove to be precursor to him earning a utility role at some point in 2015, but it remains to be seen if he'll be the successor to Mike Napoli at first base in 2016.

2013

Shaw, a ninth-round draft pick in 2011, showed some good promise in his first full season in the Red Sox organization. He has an advanced approach at the plate and feasted on the lower-lever pitchers in High-A Carolina League, bashing 16 homers and hitting .305 for Salem. That earned him a promotion to Double-A Portland, where the pitchers are better. He was challenged there and will continue to be as he advances through the system. His swing has some holes and will need to improve his contact rate against pitches in all hitting zones. He's not an overly athletic player and grades as average defensively at first base. He's a baseball guy with a good work ethic, meaning Shaw has the drive to maximize his abilities. He'll open the 2013 season at Double-A Portland.
