Shaw has ties to new Mets manager Mickey Callaway, and it wouldn’t be surprising if there were a reunion. Shaw was extremely durable during his time in Cleveland and led the American League in appearances in three out of the last four years. The 30-year-old was 4-6 with a 3.52 ERA in 79 appearances last year with the Indians. He has previous experience pitching in the National League with the Diamondbacks, where he broke into the majors back in 2011.
Shaw has never pitched at Citi Field, and oddly enough, he has a 15.43 career ERA in three appearances against the Mets, by far his worst showing against any major league team. He has, however, been very effective against the rest of the NL East in his career. Shaw’s been predicted to receive a contract somewhere in the range of $20-$27 million over three years.
