Travis Shaw opened some eyes at Boston Red Sox spring training. His reward? A ticket to the minors. Shaw, who was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, really had no chance to make the major league roster out of spring training, as the Red Sox are set at both first base (Mike Napoli) and third base (Pablo Sandoval). But being part of Boston’s first round of roster cuts...

Sox Pare Down Roster With First Spring Cuts

Travis Shaw A Red Sox Prospect Worth Keeping Eye On At Spring Training

Boston Red Sox Prospect Analysis: Travis Shaw

Last season in Portland, Travis Shaw had what some may consider a down year, but it was certainly a productive year for him nonetheless. He may not have batted over .300 like he did in Salem in 2012, and he may have batted .221, but there are some positives that can be taken away from his season. The power was still there for Shaw who managed to hit 16 homeruns, only a slight drop...
