Travis Shaw Has Two Fewer HRs Than Red Sox Team

Maybe someday, Tyler Thornburg will pitch for the Red Sox and we can gauge the trade that sent Travis Shaw to Milwaukee to get him. Right now, it's seems pretty imbalanced. Shaw is on an extra-base tear for The Brew Crew, despite hitting just .254. So far, he has five home runs, seven doubles and a triple in sixteen games. The entire Red Sox team has 7 HRs so far. His three-run HR last night propelled the Brewers to a 7-5 win. His 458-foot monster shot to RF is the 4th-longest by a Brewer in the 'Statcast™' era and the eighth-longest by any player since 2015. Impressive.
