Shaw a free agent after Brewers fail to offer deal

The Milwaukee Brewers did not tender a contract to infielder Travis Shaw on Sunday, making him a free agent.

Shaw had put together two impressive seasons for the Brewers after they acquired him three years ago from the Red Sox in a multiplayer deal that sent reliever Tyler Thornburg to Boston.

Shaw, 29, batted .273 with 31 home runs and 101 RBIs in 2017, then followed that with a .241-32-86 line in 2018.

But Shaw, who has started at both second and third base in Milwaukee, slumped to .157 with just 7 home runs and 16 RBIs last season.

Milwaukee also did not tender contracts to pitchers Junior Guerra, Jimmy Nelson and Alex Claudio, and infielder Tyler Saladino.
