BOSTON — The Boston Globe’s Alex Speier is reporting that Washington Court House native, Travis Shaw, was designated for assignment Friday, April 29.
The Red Sox called up Franchy Cordero to take his place on the roster, the team announced.
Shaw, who signed a minor league deal with the Sox in mid-March, made the Opening Day roster but struggled in a part-time role, going 0 for 19 with seven strikeouts. He’d been serving as a lefthanded complement to Bobby Dalbec at first base. But with the duo combining for a .119/.167/.190 line, the Sox opted to change their mix.
