Matt Shaw Continues To Showcase Potential At Double-A

Chicago Cubs third base prospect Matt Shaw has remained hot at the plate since his power surge to close out June. In his past five games, Shaw holds a .316 AVG with two multi-hit games. Since June 13, Shaw has begun to find his footing at Double-A and has posted a stellar .339/.394/.625 line with four home runs, 14 RBI, four stolen bases, and a 6:11 BB:K ratio. Before this extended hot stretch, Shaw was riding a poor .159 AVG in early June. The former first-round selection in the 2023 MLB Draft out of Maryland has been progressing through a deep Chicago system very quickly and is already considered the second-best prospect in the system on MLB.com. Shaw remains on track to make his major league debut next season and is developing into one of the best third-base prospects in the sport.

Matt Shaw Launches Four Homers In Big Week

The Chicago Cubs selected second baseman Matt Shaw with the 13th pick in the first round of last summer's draft. The talented infielder has an advanced approach and high baseball IQ at the plate, showcasing a rare blend of both aggressiveness and discipline. He produces hard contact, hits to all parts of the field, and has even exceeded power expectations so far this year. He also draws walks at a decent clip and has kept his strikeout rate in a reasonable range. Defensively, he has a reliable glove, so while not super rangy, he should stick at second or third base long-term. Shaw put on a show last week, hitting 9-for-21 with four homers, nine RBI, five walks, and five strikeouts. He also stole a base. His best performance during that stretch came on Sunday as he slugged two homers in one game. The 22-year-old has played pro baseball for less than one year, but he's already pushing for a promotion to Triple-A.

Matt Shaw Continues To Show Power In Triple-A

Chicago Cubs infield prospect Matt Shaw had another big performance for Double-A Tennessee on Sunday. Shaw, the No. 42 prospect per MLB Pipeline went 2-for-4 with three runs, five RBI and a home run in a loss. Shaw's homer was his third in the last six games and he is now hitting .245 with 10 homers, 33 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 65 games. Shaw has been a big bright spot for the Cubs system this season and quietly has become of the of better prospects in all of baseball. The 2023 first-round draft pick has shown the ability to make consistent contact off both righties and lefties and also has some pop in his bat. Shaw was drafted as a shortstop, but he is likely to wind up at third base with Dansby Swanson and Nico Hoerner holding down the middle of the infield for the Cubs. The Cubs offense has been ugly this season and that could lead to the team considering Shaw more and more as the season goes on. Even if Shaw doesn't make his debut in 2024, there is a strong chance that he could be wearing blue pinstripes in 2025. He should be rostered in dynasty leagues and a name for redraft managers to remember heading into next season.

Matt Shaw Extends Hitting Streak To Seven Games On Thursday

Chicago Cubs infield prospect Matt Shaw extended his hitting streak to seven games on Thursday evening by going 2-for-4 with a double and home run. In this stretch, the former 13th overall pick has been riding a stellar .414/.455/.690 slash line with two home runs. Before he began this streak, he posted a poor .150/.227/.250 line in his previous ten games. It is a great sign to see the top prospect battle through a slump and return to form fairly quickly. The Maryland product has now logged 77 games at Double-A over the past two summers and has a strong chance of being promoted to Triple-A Iowa very soon. Shaw is ranked as the 42nd overall prospect on MLB.com and remains on pace to make his major league debut next summer.

Matt Shaw Riding Three-Game Hitting Streak

Chicago Cubs third base/shortstop prospect Matt Shaw extended his hitting streak to three games with another two-hit showing on Wednesday. Even though Shaw has posted a poor .228/.339/.337 line through May, the 22-year-old has begun to find his footing this season. Through his past thirteen games, the number three prospect in the Chicago system has posted a much improved .292/.370/.438 line with two home runs, three swiped bags, and a 6:10 BB:K ratio. Shaw opened the 2023 campaign with the Rookie League and was able to finish the year by playing 15 games with Double-A. The former first-round pick has remained with Double-A Tennessee ever since but should be expected to join Triple-A Iowa in the coming months. The Maryland product is projected to reach the Northside in 2025 and could be worth stashing in dynasty leagues as the summer progresses.

Matt Shaw Struggling In May

Chicago Cubs third base/shortstop prospect Matt Shaw got off to a strong start to the campaign in April but has struggled through the early part of May. In April, he posted a solid .237/.387/.424 line with three long balls and a 12:19 BB:K ratio. However, in May he has a disappointing .159/.309/.227 line with no home runs and a 10:10 BB:K ratio. Through 13 games in May, he has only tallied seven hits compared to the 14 he knocked in 18 games in April. Shaw, who is ranked as the fourth-best prospect in the Chicago system on MLB Pipeline, looked to be on a fast track to Triple-A early this season, but that has taken a bit of a halt. The 22-year-old is projected to reach the major leagues in 2025 but may have to wait until late in the summer to join Triple-A Iowa due to his recent struggles.

Matt Shaw Off To Impressive Start

Chicago Cubs shortstop prospect Matt Shaw is a name for dynasty managers to take note of, as he has been on fire to open the season for Double-A Tennessee. The Cubs first-round pick of 2023 had a great Spring Training with the club and that has carried over to Tennessee. Over his first nine games, Shaw is hitting an astounding .370 with a triple, three home runs, seven RBI and four stolen bases. The 22-year-old has dominated since being drafted this past season and is rising quickly in the Cubs system. The Cubs do have Nico Hoerner and Dansby Swanson up the middle, but when you're hitting the ball as well as Shaw has, a position will be found. In his case, likely third base with Christopher Morel struggling defensively. Shaw's offensive abilities offer much to be excited for and managers in dynasty leagues should take notice and roster the young budding star. Managers in redraft leagues should also consider adding Shaw to the watch-list as he offers exciting potential if he receives a promotion to the show at some point in 2024.

Matt Shaw Invited To Big-League Camp

Chicago Cubs infielder Matt Shaw was among 19 non-roster players to receive major-league invites to spring training this year. Along with Shaw, fellow top prospect Owen Caissie will be in camp this year. The 22-year-old Shaw was taken in the first round last year and hit .357/.400/.618 with a 1.018 OPS, eight home runs, 28 RBI, 15 stolen bases and 27 runs scored in 38 total games at three different minor-league levels, ultimately finishing at Double-A Tennessee. Most of Shaw's experience has come up the middle, but he could eventually be poised to move to third base down the road. Shaw will most likely open the 2024 season with Tennessee or Triple-A Iowa, but another strong year on the farm could make him a candidate to join the big-league roster for the first time in 2024.

Matt Shaw Taking Reps At Third Base

Chicago Cubs shortstop Matt Shaw has been taking reps at third base, he told reporters. Shaw was the 13th overall pick in the 2023 MLB draft and was primarily a middle infielder in college at The University of Maryland. Shaw said he's taken "probably 99%" of his reps at third base and added that "you never know where the opportunities are gonna come. They could be anywhere." The Cubs are pretty set in the middle of their infield with Dansby Swanson at shortstop and Nico Hoerner at second so Shaw could see more playing time if he mans the hot corner. Shaw hit .357/.400/.618 with eight home runs, 28 RBI, and 15 steals across 157 at-bats over three levels of the Cubs' minor league system last year. He's a highly intriguing prospect and someone to keep an eye on in fantasy, particularly in dynasty leagues.
