Travis Shaw Makes YAHOO! All-Rookie Team For 2015

(USAToday Sports)
Red Sox first-baseman Travis Shaw has made the YAHOO! Sports All-Rookie Team for 2015. Shaw edged out The Evil Empire's Greg "I'm Not Larry" Bird. One of the few pleasant surprises of 2015, Shaw got tons of playing time after Mike Napoli was dealt to the Rangers. The 25-year old Shaw ended up playing in 65 games for The Carmine Hose—hitting .274 with 13 HRs and 36 RBIs. He had an OBP of .331, slugged .491 and garnered an OPS of .822. The others on the YAHOO! list were: Kyle Schwarber C; Addison Russell 2B; Carlos Correa SS; Kris Bryant 3B; Joc Pederson OF; Odubel Herrera OF; Randal Grichuk OF; Miguel Sano DH; Noah Syndergaard SP; Lance McCullers SP; Carlos Rodon SP; Anthony DeSclafani SP; Robbie Ray SP; Carson Smith RP; and Roberto Osuna Closer.
