1B Christopher Shaw

The very impressive Shaw displayed his ability to hit with power this past summer by leading the Cape Cod League in home runs, and earning the 2015 Cape Cod League MVP. Shaw was drafted earlier this year as the 31st overall pick in the 1st round out of Boston College.

Shaw is currently playing just north in Oregon with the low Single-A Salem-Keiser Volcanoes, and he has had no trouble hitting the longball in the Northwest either. In 152 at-bats, Shaw has cracked 9 home runs, while contributing 25 RBIs.

The left-handed first baseman is well-liked around the clubhouse and the organization likes his raw hitting talents, but he is a very slow runner. Although it may be a couple years, with a lot of motivation Shaw could become a Chris Davis-type player.

Next: #7. Jalen Miller
