Matt Shoemaker allows unearned run in Game 2 of ALDS


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker didn't factor into the decision Friday despite surrendering just one unearned run on five hits in six innings while striking out six in his team's 4-1, 11-inning loss to the Royals in Game 2 of the American League Division Series.

Shoemaker looked none the worse for wear in his first outing since Sept. 15 after missing more than two weeks with an oblique injury. After giving up a leadoff single in the first inning on which the runner advanced to second base on an error, the starter surrendered a one-out single to bring the unearned run home. He then allowed just three singles over the next four scoreless innings. If the series goes five games, Shoemaker will likely pitch the winner-take-all contest Wednesday. The series shifts to Kansas City Sunday with the Angels down 2-0.

Jump on the Matt Shoemaker bandwagon


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/22/2014) I'm tired of playing the Matt Shoemaker skeptic. If nine starts aren't enough to tell us anything -- maybe not everything, but something -- then we might as well stop commenting on players midseason. Since that's not going to happen, I'm looking at what Shoemaker has done in his last nine -- a 2.54 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings -- and jumping on the bandwagon before it's too late.

So what if he was terrible in the minors? (And yes, he was terrible, getting stuck there until age 27 thanks to a 4.52 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in seven seasons.) So was Dallas Keuchel, and it didn't stop us from swimming to him like sharks to chum when he looked good in April and May. And for the most part, he's kept it up.

In Shoemaker's case, there were a few standout years in there -- most notably 2011, when he had a 3.15 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. You know what was so special about that year? It was the only one after 2009 when he spent any time anywhere other than the heavy-hitting California and Pacific Coast leagues. In 23 starts at Double-A Arkansas that year, he had a 2.48 ERA.

Of course, that doesn't explain why Shoemaker is so much more of a strikeout pitcher in the majors, and like Keuchel, I think he'll regress in that area a bit. But by now, I think he's proven his worth to Fantasy owners.


Matt Shoemaker dominates Red Sox Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker gave up one hit against the Red Sox.

Shoemaker went 7 2/3 innings, giving up one hit and one walk. He struck out nine during the outing. Shoemaker was actually throwing a no-hitter through 6 2/3 innings before Will Middlebrooks doubled. Middlebrooks did not start the game, and was a replacement for Yoenis Cespedes, who left due to personal reasons. Shoemaker gave up his walk in the eighth inning, and was pulled from the game at that point. He threw 116 pitches during the start.

With the win, Shoemaker improved to 12-4. He’ll take on the Marlins in his next start. 


Matt Shoemaker picks up a win Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker turned in a solid start against the Rangers Saturday.

Shoemaker allowed two runs on four hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked one. Things started out well for Shoemaker, as he tossed three scoreless innings to start the game. He was tagged for both runs in the fourth. A solo home run by Shin-Soo Choo accounted for the first run against Shoemaker. J.P. Arencibia would later single in a run during the inning. 

With the win, Shoemaker improved to 11-4. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start.
