This news comes shortly after the Mets expressed interest in Shaw and Joe Smith, another Cleveland reliever who is a free agent this year.
If it is the Mets, Shaw going to play for them is ideal because he pitched for current Mets manager Mickey Callaway when Callaway was the pitching coach for the Indians for the last five seasons.
The 30-year-old Shaw has been one of the most dependable relievers in the game. He has led the American League in appearances three of the last four seasons while being a part of an Indians bullpen that included Andrew Miller and Cody Allen. Last year, He went 4-6 with a 3.52 ERA while making an AL-best 79 appearances. Shaw also struck out 73 and walked 22 in 76 2⁄3 innings. He is second in Indians’ history in relief appearances with 378, trailing only Allen (386).
