News: Shaw picked up the save in a 2-0 victory with closer Cody Allen unavailable due to a stiff back.
Impact: Allen is expected back Wednesday but Shaw would be next in line to close out games for the Indians if Allen were unavailable.

News: Shaw recorded the final four outs -- including a strikeout -- for his first save Thursday against the Cubs.
Impact: Indians closer Cody Allen was called upon to work out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth after a rain delay, so Shaw received the save opportunity Thursday. He converted it without allowing a single base runner, but it is unlikely that Shaw will see many more save chances. The Indians will continue to use Allen as their closer, and Shaw should return to his role as a setup man.
