RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

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.
