The Red Sox have claimed Travis Shaw off of waivers, from the Brewers.
The Mayor is back!

The lefty bat was drafted in the ninth round of the 2011 draft by the Sox, and after two strong seasons with Boston in 2015 and 2016, the left-handed bat was dealt to Milwaukee. The versatile infielder, in his two seasons, slashed .251/.312/.442 with the Sox, hitting 29 homers and recording 107 RBIs through 120 total games with the team.
Shaw spent three seasons with the team, before spending 2020 with the Blue Jays. He was re-signed by the Blue Jays for this season, but hasn’t had the best season so far.
He’s hit just .191/.279/.337 with six homers through 56 games before getting injured, mustering a career-worst 68 wRC+. He’s also spent 11 games in Triple-A this year, where he’s gone 9-for-33 with two homers and eight walks.
