Matt Shoemaker twirls seven scoreless innings in win vs. Tigers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker shined in a win Saturday, giving up just three hits and no walks in seven scoreless innings and striking out five in his team's 4-0 victory over the Tigers.

Shoemaker (8-3) excelled against a very tough offense Saturday, giving up only a first-inning double, a third-inning single and a sixth-inning single before leaving after just 78 pitches. He owns a 4.13 ERA and 77:15 K:BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings. Shoemaker is scheduled to face the Rays Friday.


Matt Shoemaker strikes out 10 in loss vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker was hung with a loss Monday after giving up four earned runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings while striking out 10 in his team's 4-2 defeat against the Orioles.

Shoemaker (7-3) matched his season high for strikeouts without issuing a walk, but he was doomed by a pair of two-run home runs by Adam Jones. The Angels pitcher owns a 4.54 ERA and 72:15 K:BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Tigers Saturday.


Relief emergency forces Angels rotation changes


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) The Angels have pushed Hector Santiago to start Thursday's game against the Rangers according to MLB.com, after Matt Shoemaker was pressed into emergency relief duty Monday.

Santiago was expected to start Friday, but has been available in the bullpen Tuesday if needed. He will be followed by Garrett Richards, Jered Weaver and Tyler Skaggs to close out the Rangers series, while Shoemaker is not expected to start  before the break. 


Matt Shoemaker earns win in relief Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker picked up a win in a relief role Monday, giving up two earned runs on five hits in 3 2/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 5-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

Shoemaker (7-2) threw 102 pitches in a start last Thursday and was not expected to pitch again until this Thursday, but an injury to Monday starter Jered Weaver caused the team to call upon the righty, who lasted 61 pitches in the relief outing. Shoemaker owns a 4.38 ERA and 62:15 K:BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings. The team will turn to another pitcher for Thursday's game, with Hector Santiago a logical choice for the start.


Matt Shoemaker bounces back with win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker bounced back from his worst start of the season with a quality start Thursday, in a 5-2 win over the Astros.

After allowing eight runs in his last outing, Shoemaker held the Astros to just two runs over six innings Thursday. He scattered seven hits and three walks in the outing, while striking out seven batters on 102 pitches in the win.

Shoemaker dropped his last decision, but got back on the winning side to improve his record to 6-2. He carries a 4.35 ERA over 60 innings into his next start, set for Wednesday against the Blue Jays. 


Matt Shoemaker hit hard in second loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker's run of solid starts came to an end Friday, in an 8-6 loss to the Royals.

The offense actually gave Shoemaker an early lead, but he handed it right back as the Royals jumped on him in the third inning. He allowed eight runs on 11 hits in four innings of work, and seven of those runs came during the third. He struck out just two batters and walked one on 79 pitches.

Shoemaker fell to 5-2 with the loss, his first since mid-April. He has a 4.50 in 54 innings heading into his next start, scheduled for Wednesday against the White Sox.


Wait and see on Matt Shoemaker


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/23/2014) I'll admit I didn't see this coming for Matt Shoemaker. I assumed he got the call to replace a struggling Hector Santiago back in mid-May simply because the Angels had no one better in their depleted farm system. But after back-to-back impressive starts -- one at Cleveland and the other against Texas -- I have to at least entertain the possibility that he might be something useful in Fantasy.

Yes, he's only now getting an extended look at age 27, which suggests the Angels themselves didn't believe in him, and his minor-league track record is mostly terrible. But in more recent years, his terrible numbers have come at Triple-A Salt Lake of the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League, where even the best pitching prospects struggle. In 23 starts at Double-A Arkansas before his promotion in 2011, he had a 2.48 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 7.4 strikeouts per nine innings.

Of course, even then, he wasn't nearly the strikeout pitcher he is now, which makes his recent performance even fishier. And in those two impressive starts, he still allowed his share of baserunners.

So I'm keeping an open mind, but in leagues where Jake Arrieta, Jake Odorizzi, Kyle Gibson, Chase Whitley and the like are still available, I'm probably letting someone else have Shoemaker.


Matt Shoemaker stays on a roll


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker was brilliant for the second straight outing, allowing one run over 7 2/3 innings in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Rangers. Shoemaker struck out six, walked two and scattered eight hits. He improved to 5-1 while lowering his ERA to 3.42.

Shoemaker has allowed three runs over his last 15 2/3 innings, with 16 strikeouts. He'll visit the Royals on Friday.


Angels' rotation changed for Rangers series


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2014) The Angels have shuffled their rotation for the weekend series against the Rangers, pushing Hector Santiago into the bullpen for at least one turn MLB.com reports.

Santiago will pitch out of the bullpen at least until next weekend's series in Kansas City. The move was made to get Jered Weaver on the mound Saturday, followed by Matt Shoemaker Sunday.  


Matt Shoemaker fans 10 in career game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker twirled the finest start of his career Tuesday, in a 9-3 win over the Indians.

Shoemaker appeared to be well on his way to a complete game, the first of his career, but an 11-minute rain delay ended his game after 94 pitches in the ninth inning. He limited the Indians to two runs on five hits in eight innings of work, while walking just one batter and striking out a career-high 10.

Shoemaker has mostly held his own as a start for the Angels, even though he has been moved in and out of the rotation at times. He is 4-1 with a 3.83 ERA in 42 1/3 innings on the season, though his ERA is just 3.40 as a starter. His next outing is set for Sunday against the Rangers. 


Offense bails Matt Shoemaker out in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker had trouble fooling White Sox hitters Saturday, as he settled for a no-decision in a 6-5 win.

Shoemaker finished five innings, but pitched into the sixth before he was removed. He was charged with four runs -- three earned -- on nine hits, and was pulled after allowing a leadoff home run to Adam Dunn in the sixth inning.

Shoemaker struck out six batters and did not walk any in the outing, but left down 4-0 and in line for a loss before the offense rallied. He remains 3-1 with a 4.24 ERA in 34 innings on the season. His next start is set for Friday in Atlanta.


Matt Shoemaker picks up third win in solid outing


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker fell two outs shy of a quality start on Thursday, picking up his third win of the season in his team's 7-5 victory over the Mariners in Seattle.

Shoemaker (3-1) surrendered a two-run home run to Michael Saunders in the fourth and was charged with a sacrifice fly in the sixth. He pitched 5 1/3 innings and yielded three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out six for the win. Of his 73 pitches, 46 were strikes.

Shoemaker owns a 3.54 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP in seven appearances, including four starts (28 innings). He will take the mound Wednesday at Houston.

Matt Shoemaker called back up, will start Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) The Angels recalled pitcher Matt Shoemaker from Triple-A Salt Lake Wednesday, after Sean Burnett was placed on the 15-day disabled list.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Shoemaker hasn't given up more than two earned runs in any of his three starts since joining the rotation, and his six strikeouts Saturday matched a season high. He owns a 3.18 ERA and 20:7 K:BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings. Shoemaker is slated to face the Mariners in Seattle Thursday.


Matt Shoemaker turns in quality start for win No. 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Matt Shoemaker makes case Tuesday to remain in rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Angels right-hander Matt Shoemaker passed his first test Tuesday in his audition to land the rotation spot opened when Hector Santiago lost his place. Shoemaker gave up two runs on three innings in five innings against Philadelphia.

"I think Matt will be valuable," Mike Scioscia said after the promotion of Shoemaker from Triple-A Salt Lake City. "He's been throwing the ball well his last couple of outings down there ... Obviously there's a void in our rotation that we need filled and we'll see how Matt does."

Shoemaker is slated to start Sunday against Tampa Bay. He appears set as the fifth starter for now.

Shoemaker has posted a 3.86 ERA and 8:3 K:BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings. He's likely to be sent back down after the spot start.
