(AP) - Travis Shaw’s second stint with the Milwaukee Brewers is off to an encouraging start. Shaw is now part of the Brewers’ 40-man roster and among the leading candidates for playing time at third base.

Shaw had signed a minor league deal with the Brewers last month. Shaw had two productive seasons before tailing off dramatically in 2019. The Brewers made room for Shaw on the 40-man roster by placing utilityman Mark Mathias on the 60-day injured list with a torn labrum in his right shoulder.
