Chris Shaw (30), from the first round of the rookie draft, took the last chance.
NBC Sports reported on the 10th (Korean time) that the Chicago White Sox acquired Shaw as a free agent. Shaw played 117 games in the independent league last year, hitting 0.264 (110 hits in 416 at-bats) with 17 homers and 72 RBIs. Currently, the White Sox have several players competing for a spot in right field, and Shaw is expected to enter the race as well. 안전놀이터
Shaw was once a big-time prospect. He was drafted by the San Francisco Giants with the 31st overall pick in the first round of the 2015 draft. His nomination order was faster than Key Brian Hayes (Pittsburgh Pirates, 1st round No. 32) and Austin Riley (Atlanta Braves, 1st round No. 41). He only made a down payment of 1.4 million dollars (1.8 billion won). Beginning in 2017, he seemed to live up to expectations by hitting 20 home runs in the minor leagues for the third straight year. But it was just there.
Show, who debuted in the big leagues in 2018, played in 38 games for two years, with a batting average of 0.153 (11 hits in 72 at-bats), 1 home run and 7 RBIs. He left San Francisco in December 2020 and transferred to the Baltimore Orioles on a waiver claim. However, he was released in July 2021 without much success. Since then, Shaw has played an independent league without being courted by any team.
The White Sox is his de facto last chance. Shaw’s minor league record (6 years) is a batting average of 0.273 with 110 homers and 359 RBIs.
