Former Cleveland Baseball Club reliever Bryan Shaw is heading to the Seattle Mariners after the Colorado Rockies decided to part ways.
After two seasons in Colorado Bryan Shaw will have a new home. Shaw is expected to be heading to Seattle to join the Mariners per Jon Heyman. Shaw signed with the Rockies after the 2017 season on a three-year deal worth $27 million.
The former Cleveland Baseball Club reliever was a key bullpen arm for five seasons. Shaw appeared in 378 games while in Cleveland and finished with a 3.11 ERA, 1.188 WHIP, and 8.4 K/9. Shaw became a go-to guy for Terry Francona during his tenure with the club. When Tito needed to navigate a situation late in the game, more often than not Shaw was the guy. The only season in which Shaw did not lead Cleveland in appearances was his first in 2013. Cody Allen had 77 appearances while Shaw was tied with Joe Smith with 70. Shaw led MLB in appearances twice with 80 in 2014 and 79 in 2017 and also led the American League with 75 in 2016.
