Another quality defensive option at both third and first.

Social media is already going crazy negative with this and he isn’t even a Brewer yet. I’m hopeful that he does well, but I just don’t have a good feeling about this.

Totally fine with this. Adds a left hander to the depth on that side of the infield. Not expecting a ton but if he can hit righties reasonably well this should suffice

Plus defense at 3B and (in an ideal scenario) a righty masher. Makes perfect sense for what our current roster needs.

If you want to dream:

2017-18 Shaw vs. RHP: .266/.359/.533/.892, .373 wOBA, 131 wRC+
2018-20 Urias vs. LHP: .337/.373/.500/.873, .372 wOBA, 133 wRC+

I don't think Urias is going to be the short-side of a platoon, but he can start at 3B against LHP and at SS against RHP.

Is there anything they're not negative about?

We don’t even know if it’s a major league deal yet.

Outside of 2019, Shaw has been anywhere from a decent to great player. Happy for him to be here again.

I hope it's one of those deals with a team option or two tacked on in case he returns to 4 WAR form.

On a minor league deal it's fine. I just don't have much hope there is anything left there. The way he ended up as a Brewer really left a bad taste in my mouth.

If he can hit just half as well as he did in 2018, this would be a very solid pickup.

Sounding like it is a minor league NRI deal, which is nice since it means they don't need to make a 40-man move right away: https://twitter.com/bradfo/status/1361845724481269762

We've got about 3 parallel discussions going on regarding Shaw right now. Moving this to the Rumors forum until it's official.

I remember Yelich saying last summer about how he talked with Travis Shaw almost every day. I'd sign Shaw as a 26th man who never plays if it means Yelich hits like he did in '18 and '19.

Minor league deal equals virtually no risk. Obviously a solid move. Would love to see him bounce back. Also like the idea of his defense at 3b.

I like this. A Shaw/Robertson platoon could put up really decent numbers at 3B for not much money.

A great day for Brewers fans. Anderson and now Shaw is back in the mix. This gives them roster flexibility and an opportunity to get a LH portion of the 1B/3B combination. Good stuff!

If the Brewers can get league average offense from Shaw and a $3 million dollar contract; they will have done very well
