Travis Shaw's 2017 Breakout Season Celebrated with a Silver Coin
Third baseman Travis Shaw was traded at the end of the 2016 season from the Boston Red Sox™ to the Milwaukee Brewers™ in a fairly routine end-of-season swap. Yet, it appears, nothing could have been better for him. For Shaw, 2017 could only be described as a breakout year. He hit two more home runs in roughly 70 fewer games, a rate increase that cannot be ignored. He's had more walks and hits, along with fewer strikeouts turning him into a real weapon for the Brewers™ arsenal.
