The Brewers are continuing their pursuit of 3B Mike Moustakas, and if they end up landing him, they might look to trade their current third baseman, Travis Shaw, per The Athletic's Jim Bowden.
One of the teams Bowden mentions is the Mets, as well as the Yankees and Braves as potential trade destinations for Shaw. In his first season with the Brewers, he posted a .273/.349/.513 slash line to go along with 31 homers and 101 RBI in his best season in the MLB thus far.
Shaw is also a stout defender, having only committed nine errors in 255 attempts at third base last season. He was also worth +3 in DRS as well as +10 in 2016 with the Red Sox.
If the Brewers were to trade Shaw to the Mets, the 27-year-old would be under team control for four years before hitting the free agent market in 2022.
The Mets have also been mentioned in the hunt for Moustakas, as they are searching for another infielder. The 29-year-old is a career .251/.305/.425 hitter with 119 HR in seven seasons with the Royals, but hasn't garnered much interest so far in the free agent market.
