Milwaukee Brewers 3B/1B Travis Shaw dislocated his shoulder diving for a ground ball in a 7-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday, The Brewers subsequently put him on the 10-day injured list, however, it's looking like the veteran might be out of the lineup for much longer than that.

Milwaukee and its fanbase got some bad news in the latest injury update on Saturday. The Athletic's Will Sammon is reporting that Shaw and the organization hope that he's back in the lineup by August. Considering how that's about two months away, it'll be quite some time before Brewers fans get to see him back in the lineup.

Travis Shaw Injury Update

When asked about his injury status, Shaw said that it's a "sucky situation" and that his eventual return "is gonna take a while." Regardless of how long he is out of the lineup, the hope is that the 31-year-old infielder can return feeling refreshed and ready to improve on a disappointing season.

Through 178 at-bats this season, Shaw's hit 6 home runs and 28 RBI. While those numbers are decent enough, he's slashing .191/.279/.337 — considerably below the .239/.322/.439 he's averaged in his career. Obviously, there's no correlation between Shaw's play this season and his shoulder separation, however, maybe some time away from the game can help him refocus.

Whenever Shaw does come back, he could find himself in the middle of a battle for the top spot in the NL Central. The Brewers are tied for the Chicago Cubs for the top spot in the division standings. However, Milwaukee is favored to win at +120 odds, according to the latest MLB odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
