Angels' Matt Shoemaker has seven scoreless in no-decision
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Angels starter Matt Shoemaker picked up a hard-luck no-decision after pitching seven scoreless innings against San Diego.
"That was very encouraging," Shoemaker said, per MLB.com. "I kind of almost needed that. I'd get guys on base in the past, they were scoring."
Shoemaker allowed four hits and walked one, while striking out six. He cut his ERA to 5.44.
"He pitched the way we saw him pitch last year," manager Mike Scioscia. "And that was great to see."
The next start for Shoemaker is Sunday, against Detroit.
Angels P Matt Shoemaker allows 7 earned runs in loss
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker gave up eight runs — seven earned — in Thursday night's 8-4 loss to the Blue Jays.
Shoemaker allowed four runs in the fifth inning, though pitched into the seventh until he was taken out. Shoemaker's performance dropped him to 3-4 this season with a 6.29 ERA.
"I have to turn it around quick," Shoemaker said after the game, per MLB.com. "There's really no other way to say it other than it has to be done quicker to help this team out. I don't want to keep putting us in a bad situation."
Shoemaker struck out four batters, walked two and surrendered eight hits.
Angels SP Matt Shoemaker sharp in start on Saturday vs. Orioles
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) On Saturday, Angels starter Matt Shoemaker dominated the Orioles over seven innings, allowing just one run on on three hits. He struck out seven and did not issue a walk. He threw 60 of his 84 pitches for strikes - meaning only 16 of his pitches were not strikes.
The only run to come against Shoemaker was a solo home run from Steve Pearce in the bottom of the fourth inning, which actually put the Angels down 1-0. But Shoemaker's teammates fought for him and scored six times in the last three innings to give him his third win of the season.
“I have to have that aggressive bulldog mentality,” Shoemaker said, per The Orange County Register. “That’s how I pitch. That’s when I do well. I have to continue to remind myself, ‘Hey, I’m going out there and competing against the hitter.’”
Shoemaker (3-3) bounced back from a nightmare of an outing his last time out, when he gave up six runs in three innings against the Astros on May 9. His brilliant start on Saturday lowered his ERA by nearly a whole run, as it now sits at 5.63. His next start is scheduled for Thursday in Toronto.
Angels starter Matt Shoemaker lasts just three innings in loss
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker allowed six runs on six hits in three innings of work in Los Angeles' 6-5 loss to the Astros on Saturday.
Shoemaker had issues in each inning of work. He allowed a solo home run to Jose Altuve in the first. Then, he gave up a two-run homer to Chris Carter in the second inning. In the third, it continued to pile on as he allowed three hits, with all runners eventually scoring, including a two-run shot by Colby Rasmus.
Shoemaker, now 2-3, ballooned his ERA to 6.61 in 31 1/3 innings. He will look to get back on track Saturday against the Orioles.
Angels' Matt Shoemaker serves up three solo homers in loss
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker took a loss Monday, giving up three earned runs on four hits and one walk in 7 1/3 innings while racking up 10 strikeouts in his team's 3-2 defeat against the Mariners.
Shoemaker (2-2) delivered six scoreless innings before surrendering two solo home runs in the seventh. He then gave up another solo home run in the eighth before being pulled. It's the third time in his five starts that the Angels starter has served up multiple home runs.
Shoemaker owns a 5.40 ERA and 27:6 K:BB ratio in 28 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Astros Saturday.
|2014 summary: After stalling at Triple-A for three years following an unimpressive climb up the minor-league ladder, Matt Shoemaker got a chance to replace an ineffective Hector Santiago early in 2014, and it went better than anyone could have imagined. By season's end, he was the Angels' most effective starting pitcher -- and not just by process of elimination. On a per-start basis, he was more productive in Head-to-Head points leagues than Madison Bumgarner, Stephen Strasburg, Yu Darvish and Zack Greinnke, to name a few.|
Playing time status: In addition to 20 starts, Shoemaker also made seven relief appearances -- most of them early on, before the Angels really knew what they had -- so his innings might be concerning to some. But factor in the minors and playoffs, and he had a total of 167 2/3, putting 200 within his reach as a sophomore.
2015 outlook: In a world where Jose Abreu doesn't exist, Shoemaker wins AL Rookie of the Year in 2014. Pretty good for a 28-year-old with poor minor-league numbers and no prospect pedigree. It was a fluke, then, right? Normally, that would show up in the peripherals, but Shoemaker's high strikeout rate combined with his incredibly low walk rate yielded a FIP more or less in line with his ERA, making his minor-league numbers even harder to reconcile. As consistent as he was down the stretch, he at least deserves a shot as your third starting pitcher.
