News: Shaw converted his fifth hold of the season in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays, getting the last two outs of the sixth inning.
Impact: It was interesting to see Shaw come in so early, but it was also pretty clear he wasn't going to pitch beyond that inning, having pitched three times in the previous five days. Cody Allen gave up another run later in the game, and while the Indians haven't suggested that they will change out the closer role, if they do opt to do so either Shaw or Scott Atchison are the most likely alternatives.
Rotowire: Mar 21 / 9:19p ET
News: Shaw, who allowed a pair of solo homers Saturday, has now allowed 12 runs (six earned) on 12 hits, including three homers, in just 4.2 innings this spring.
Impact: Shaw served as Cody Allen's primary setup man last year, making a league-high 80 appearances for Cleveland. His struggles against lefties and a mediocre strikeout rate limit his fantasy value, but he should open the season as the team's primary setup man, despite his struggles this spring.
