Relief pitcher Bryan Shaw is born in Livermore, California.
The Indians’ single season leader in games pitched, with 80 in 2014, was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the second round of the 2008 amateur draft out of California State University Long Beach. He spent parts of the 2011 and 2012 seasons with the D’Backs before being traded to Cleveland with pitchers Matt Albers and Trevor Bauer as part of the three-team trade that sent Shin-Soo Choo to the Cincinnati Reds on December 11, 2012.
Through his first four seasons in Cleveland, Shaw has worked at least 70 games each year. He led the American League with his 75 in 2016 and led all of baseball with his franchise record in 2014.
