The effort to give Milwaukee Brewers infielder Travis Shaw a second chance at regaining his 2017-18 form has been scuttled.
The Brewers have optioned Shaw to AAA San Antonio and called up utility player Hernan Perez from the Missions.
They also designated pitcher Burch Smith for assignment.
This year, Shaw has batted just .162 with six home runs and 13 RBI in 65 games. In comparison, he averaged .273 in 2017 and .241 in 2018 with a combined 63 home runs and 187 RBI.
In 59 games this year, Perez is hitting .235 with 5 home runs and 11 RBI.
