Bryan Shaw suffers fourth loss of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/13/2014) Indians reliever Bryan Shaw (5-4) suffered his fourth loss of the season Saturday night against the Tigers. He allowed two runs on one hit and one walk while striking out one over one inning of work in a 5-4 defeat. He owns a 2.42 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP over 70 2/3 innings of relief.

Bryan Shaw takes loss after giving up home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Indians pitcher Bryan Shaw was stuck with a loss Monday after giving up a tiebreaking solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning of his team's 4-3 defeat against the Twins.

Shaw (4-2) was pitching for the third time in four nights Monday and wound up serving up his third home run of the season to bring home the decisive run of the game. He owns a 2.76 ERA and 40:13 K:BB ratio in 45 2/3 innings.


Bryan Shaw hit hard but earns win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Indians reliever Bryan Shaw was tagged for two runs on three hits and a walk in one inning of Sunday's 3-2 win over the White Sox, but still emerged with the victory. Shaw benefitted from Cleveland's two-run eighth to improve to 4-1, though his ERA rose to 2.70.

Shaw had put together six scoreless appearances until getting hammered Sunday.


Bryan Shaw can't win it in extras


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Indians pitcher Bryan Shaw was closing out an extra-innings game against the Diamondbacks Tuesday, but could not make a lead stand up.

Shaw pitched a scoreless 10th inning, and was rewarded with a two-run lead in the 11th. He came back out to try and finish what he started, but the Diamondbacks got to him to extend the game.

Shaw allowed a one-out home run, followed by a walk and a single to put the tying run on third base. He was pulled in favor of John Axford who allowed the Diamondbacks to tie it, costing Shaw the chance at a win.

Shaw has been mostly terrific at the back of the bullpen for the Indians, though he hasn't been asked to save many games. He has a 2.75 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 36 innings. 


Bryan Shaw picks up relief win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Indians reliever Bryan Shaw picked up the relief win Saturday afternoon against the Rockies.

Shaw faced four batters and struck out three of them in 1 1/3 perfect innings of relief. Mike Aviles singled in the game-winning run in the eighth inning, giving Cleveland a 7-6 victory. He owns a 1.37 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP in 26 1/3 innings of relief.

Indians closer mess gets even messier


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/20/2014) Considering he got the first since John Axford's removal from the closer role May 11 after filling in for him just a few days earlier, Bryan Shaw appeared to be the Indians' go-to guy for the ninth inning in the near term. So when he pitched the eighth inning of a game the Indians led by only one run Monday, it was a bit of a shock.

Granted, coming into the year, Cody Allen was considered the more likely replacement for Axford should anything go wrong, but Shaw had been so effective this season, compiling a 1.71 ERA in 23 appearances, that his ascension to the role wasn't the biggest upset ever.

Considering Allen blew the save Sunday, Terry Francona might want to rethink rethinking who he uses in the ninth inning. His hesitance to commit to either Shaw or Allen is a pretty good indication he hopes to turn the ninth inning back over to Axford at some point. Axford has had four scoreless appearances since being removed from the role, allowing no hits and two walks in 3 1/3 innings.

If I was ranking the three in terms of how many saves I think they'll get from now to the end of the season, I'd go Axford, Shaw and Allen.


Bryan Shaw a worthy short-term add


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/13/2014) When Bryan Shaw filled in for an overworked John Axford in a save situation May 6, it seemed like just a one-shot deal. After all, Cody Allen was the reliever the Indians were hyping as a future closer before signing Axford this offseason.

But considering Shaw got -- and converted -- the first save opportunity after Axford's removal Sunday, with Allen working the eighth, it's safe to conclude he has first dibs.

And he should do fine in the role. His stuff isn't as impressive as Allen's, but it has yielded similar results. Through 20 appearances, he has a 1.45 ERA and 0.86 WHIP, averaging 8.2 strikeouts per nine innings.

Ultimately, Axford figures to get another shot at the role. It's what the Indians acquired him to do, and he did a good enough job of it in April to deserve a second chance. But in the meantime, Shaw is the Indians reliever to own in Fantasy.


Bryan Shaw closes out Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Indians reliever Bryan Shaw picked up his second save of the season Sunday afternoon against the Rays in Tampa.

With John Axford removed from the closer role, Shaw was the first reliever to get a crack in the ninth. He made quick work of the Rays, requiring only nine pitches to secure a 6-5 win. He owns a 1.45 ERA with a 0.86 WHIP and 17:3 K:BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings.

Indians give John Axford break from closer role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) The Indians have removed pitcher John Axford from the closer role, the team announced Saturday.

Manager Tito Francona said the goal is to get him back into the ninth inning after he pitches in less-stressful situations earlier in games. He is 1-3 with a 4.91 ERA and 15:13 K:BB ratio in 14 2/3 innings. The Indians haven't named a replacement, but Cody Allen, Scott Atchison, Marc Rzepczynski and Bryan Shaw could get save opportunities.


Bryan Shaw earns first save with John Axford unavailable


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) With closer John Axford having pitched on three consecutive nights, Indians reliever Bryan Shaw was tabbed for his first closing opportunity of the season Tuesday against the Twins.

Shaw recorded two quick outs to open the ninth inning, and induced what looked to be a game-ending groundout before shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera's fielding error. He allowed the runner to come around on a double by the next hitter, before ending the game with a harmless pop fly.

Shaw was charged with one unearned run as well as one hit in the inning, as he lowered his ERA to 1.65 on the season. He has 16 strikeouts and just three walks and 11 hits allowed in 16 1/3 innings of work, largely as a setup man. 


Indians pair looking fine as setup men


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2014) The quest to replace setup man Joe Smith, who bolted for the Angels in free agency, is going quite well for the sizzling Indians, at least in spring training.

Both Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen appear capable of handling the load. The former has pitched five scoreless innings while the latter has surrendereed just one run in three innings.

Shaw and Allen gave indications in 2013 that they could do the job. Shaw compiled a 3.24 ERA, 1.173 WHIP and averaged 8.8 strikeouts per nine innings. Allen boasted a 2.43 ERA, 1.251 WHIP and 11 strikeouts per nine innings to place sixth in the American League Rookie of the Year balloting.

The two will serve behind new closer John Axford, but it remains to be seen what innings they generally handle. Terry Francona could be leaning toward Allen as his eighth inning guy.


Indians taking things slow with Bryan Shaw this spring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Indians pitcher Bryan Shaw is not scheduled to appear in the team's first three Cactus League games but will throw batting practice Wednesday and pitch in a bullpen session Friday, MLB.com reports.

"[Cody Allen and Shaw] threw a lot last year," manager Terry Francona said, "and they will throw a lot again this year. We'd like to start them maybe a week later than the other guys. And it also gives us a chance to look at everybody else."

Shaw isn't dealing with an injury, and the team is just trying to manage his workload in the earlygoing. He made 70 appearances in 2013, going 7-3 with a 3.24 ERA and 73:28 K:BB ratio in 75 innings.


Bryan Shaw in line for save chances?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2013) The Indians are listing closer Chris Perez as day to day with a shoulder injury after he left Sunday's game against the Red Sox during a save situation in the ninth inning. Manager Terry Francona didn't name any potential replacements for Perez in the closer's role if he were to miss time, but MLB Network analyst Peter Gammons feels Bryan Shaw would be the guy to step into the closer's role.

Shaw has no record and 1.85 ERA through 19 appearances. He has two holds, one blown save and 24 strikeouts in 24 1/3 innings. The right-hander recorded two saves for Arizona last season.


Indians have roster spot for Bryan Shaw


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2013) The Indians announced Monday they told pitcher Nick Hagadone, pitcher Bryan Shaw and infielder/outfielder Ryan Raburn they will make the opening day roster, barring any injuries.

Shaw has allowed one run on six hits and one walk in nine spring innings. He has also struck out 14, while sporting a 1.00 ERA and 0.78 WHIP.


Shaw part of mega trade


by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2012) CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports the Indians, Reds and Diamondbacks agreed to a three-team deal on Tuesday. Cleveland received pitchers Trevor Bauer, Matt Albers, Bryan Shaw and outfielder Drew Stubbs. Cincinnati received outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and infielder Jason Donald while Arizona landed shortstop Didi Gregorius, first baseman Lars Anderson and reliever Tony Sipp.
