© 2018 Per Sources- Per Sources Misses Nothing. Thornburg will join right-handers Joe Kelly, Heath Hembree and Matt Barnes and lefty Robbie Ross Jr. in the Red Sox relief corps. Instead, Shaw endured a nightmarish campaign, leading the Brewers to non-tender him in advance of the deadline on Monday. As with the trade for Craig Kimbrel with the highly talented Manuel Margot being sent out west, it all came down to blockage.
Relief pitchers have been a main focus across the majors this offseason, and Thornburg was the centerpiece in the first trade at baseball’s winter meetings. In December of 2016, the Red Sox decided to ship Travis Shaw, Mauricio Dubon, Josh Pennington, and a PTBNL (Yeison Coca) to Milwaukee in exchange for Tyler Thornburg. We knew this moment would come. Dubon was a player I hated to see leave the system and wrote about him a few years ago.
Shaw stumbled to a ghastly .157/.281/.270 line (47 wRC+) over 270 plate appearances last season. Devers, represented by Nelson Montes de Oca of Rep 1 Baseball, can let a shoulder shrug do his talking while rightfully laying contract responsibilities at the feet of his agent. The club has relied heavily upon several of these players in recent campaigns. Where is there depth, and where could they use more? The contending Brewers couldn’t afford to let Shaw sink or swim, and they demoted him to Triple-A San Antonio in June. Pennington underwent Tommy John surgery as an amateur and fell to the Red Sox in the 29th round of the 2014 Draft. The advanced metrics didn’t care much for his effort either (-9 DRS, -9.4 UZR). The 28-year-old Thornburg will set up for closer Craig Kimbrel. Defensively Dubon is excellent as noted in the scouting report and now Dubon is being introduced to playing the outfield in the Arizona Fall League.
Nevertheless, the Brewers elected not to bring Shaw back at his projected $4.7MM arbitration salary in light of his MLB struggles. As his time comes to an end, I think it’s time we revisit the Travis Shaw trade that brought Thornburg to Boston. Was It The Best Ever? In the coming days, the Red Sox will have to make a decision on the future of the reliever. Shaw’s line was 31/101/.273, but what catches the attention is .250 against lefties versus .187 against southpaws while with Boston in 2016. The misery didn’t end with just lefties as Shaw self-destructed offensively in the second half of 2016 hitting just .194 and being benched. Deals have a way of turning around with time and this one may.

His track record and age, though, give reason for cautious optimism. Not nearly enough production from a third baseman. During his time with the Brewers’ AAA affiliate, he hit .301, with 24 HRs, 93 RBIs, and an .817 OPS. ‘‘I never really had a role. After one full season at third base, the 21-year-old power phenom will focus his attentions on becoming a primary first baseman and designated hitter. Map Shaw went deep off Orioles reliever Travis Lakins in the fifth inning, stretching the Blue Jays ' lead to 7-4 at the time. This is Dubon’s third professional season with 30+ steals and you can’t teach speed.
