The Boston Red Sox have endured a less-than-ideal offseason, stumbling through the Xander Bogaerts negotiations and missing out on a number of other high-profile free agents. And while this specific player had no part of Boston's 2023 roster construction, the Red Sox learned of sad news on Monday when a fan favorite announced his retirement from baseball.

Former Red Sox slugger Travis Shaw took to Twitter on Monday to announce he was hanging it up. The former utility infielder started and ended his career with the Sox, playing four years total in Boston.

Below is his message on Twitter.

Shaw spent a total of eight seasons with three different clubs. He began his career in 2015 and quickly showed off his ability to produce powerful home run swings, knocking 15 home runs out of the park in just 65 games.

The following year, Shaw accounted for 16 home runs and 71 RBIs before he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers. Shaw went back-to-back seasons with 30+ home runs during his first two seasons in Milwaukee.

Ultimately, the veteran ended up back in Boston for his final two years in 2021 and 2022 before calling it quits.
