Angels SP Matt Shoemaker gets no-decision after quality start
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(7/30/15) Angels starter Matt Shoemaker went pitch-for-pitch with Astros ace Scott Kazmir on Thursday, but would leave with a no-decision in an eventual Los Angeles defeat.
Shoemaker went seven strong innings, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out seven hitters. Over his last two starts, Shoemaker has struck out 17 batters.
Shoemaker (5-7) has won just one of his last eight starts but has seen his ERA dip to 4.24.
Angels' Matt Shoemaker snaps three-decision losing streak
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker improved to 5-7 on the year with his first win since June 9, Tuesday against Minnesota.
Shoemaker snapped a three-decision losing streak with six shutout innings. He walked three batters and struck out a season-high 10.
Angels set post-break rotation; decisions still need to be made
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/16/15) Angels manager Mike Scioscia has partially laid out his rotation plans for the start of the second half. Lefty C.J. Wilson will get the first start out of the All-Star break, as he'll open up the weekend series against the Red Sox on Friday.
Garrett Richards and 2015 All-Star Hector Santiago will go on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
Meanwhile, the futures for Andrew Heaney, Matt Shoemaker and Jered Weaver are rather unclear. Scioscia said Heaney will get another start. Weaver is on the disabled list with a hip injury, and he threw a simulated game on Thursday but will need at least one more before he's ready to return, according to the Orange County Register.
Angels SP Matt Shoemaker allows two runs in no-decision
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/9/15) Angels starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker was solid on Wednesday against the Rockies.
Shoemaker allowed just two runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings of work. He struggled in the fourth inning, when he allowed two one-run singles to a Rockies offense he otherwise stiffled throughout the game.
Shoemaker (4-7) has a 4.80 ERA in 90 innings of work this season.
|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.
