Brewers third baseman Travis Shaw appeared seriously injured while attempting to make a diving play against the Reds on Wednesday and was assisted off the field while his father, Jeff, looked on with concern from behind the visitors’ dugout at Great American Ball Park.
Shaw dove to his right in the bottom of the second for a Jonathan India ground ball along the third-base line and landed very awkwardly on his left arm in the process.
Shaw remained immobile on the infield dirt for several minutes while medical personnel from both teams tended to him and ultimately immobilized his left arm. A Reds official drove a cart to the area while Shaw received attention, but eventually, he was able to stand with help and walked off the field into the clubhouse.
A day earlier, Shaw was successful on a similar play down the line in the Brewers’ 5-1 win over the Reds, while his two-out, two-run double in the ninth iced Milwaukee’s 10th win in its last 11 games. Shaw has played a solid third base all season since re-signing with Milwaukee on a Minor League deal and making the club out of Spring Training, even as his bat has been slow to come around.
