Angels' Matt Shoemaker has seven scoreless in no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Angels P Matt Shoemaker allows 7 earned runs in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) 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
(5/16/2015) 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
(5/9/2015) 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
(5/5/2015) 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.


Angels' Matt Shoemaker allows three runs in no-decision vs. A's


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker gave up three earned runs on six hits and one walk in 5 2/3 innings while striking out three but didn't factor into the decision in his team's 6-3 win over the A's Wednesday.

Shoemaker was placed on bereavement leave one week ago, causing him to miss one start, but he was back in action Wednesday, tossing three scoreless innings before giving up one run in the fourth and two more in the sixth.

Shoemaker owns a 6.00 ERA and 17:5 K:BB ratio in 21 innings over four starts. He's slated to face the Mariners at home Monday in his next start.


Angels place Shoemaker on bereavement leave, recall Tropeano


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) The Angels have place pitcher Matt Shoemaker on bereavement leave and recalled pitcher Nick Tropeano from Triple-A Salt Lake, the team announced Wednesday.

Shoemaker is 2-1 so far this season with a 6.46 ERA and 14 strikeouts in three starts. He's expected to miss just one start before pitching next Wednesday.

Tropeano has a 4.09 ERA with 12 strikeouts and two walks in two starts for Triple-A Salt Lake. He'll take the mound Thursday against the A's in place of C.J. Wilson, who has been pushed to Saturday.


Angels SP Matt Shoemaker struggles during Monday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker started to struggle during the first inning of Monday's loss to the Athletics and he never improved.

After giving up a run in the first, Shoemaker pitched a scoreless second, but ran into trouble in the third and fourth innings. Shoemaker gave up a three-run home run to Stephen Vogt in the third and failed to get out of the fourth inning after being replaced following a solo home run to Marcus Semien.

"Matty never settled in to what he does best," manager Mike Scioscia said after the game, per MLB.com. "That's strike one, pound the zone and change speeds. We'll turn the page on Matty for this one."

Shoemaker (2-1) surrendered five runs on seven hits over three innings. He struck out two and walked three, while taking the loss. It was the first time in his three starts this season that he failed to pitch at least six innings. His ERA rose from 4.38 to 6.46.

"He was out of sync from the beginning," Scioscia said. "When he got 0-2 to Vogt, he left a split right over the plate. These guys aren't robots. They're going to be out of sync once in a while. Matt usually makes adjustments -- he just wasn't able to do that tonight."

His next expected to start will be Saturday against the Rangers. 


Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker looking for more velocity


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker is throwing well to begin the season, posting a 2-0 record in two starts. But Shoemaker is continuing to look for improvements, mostly for more velocity on his fastball, according to MLB.com.

"For me, that's usually how it is," said Shoemaker. "I feel like early on in the season, with any season, I get stronger. I don't feel anything different. I think it's just the strength and getting into a rhythm."

Shoemaker is averaging 88.9 mph on his fastball this season after averaging 91.3 in 2014. Shoemaker thinks it is mostly about his recent weight loss.

"That's what it usually does. I'm not very far off, which is a good thing - but it is kind of funny how quickly I can regain the weight.

"I feel like when I'm at that weight, there's more there, just because there's more behind the ball and I have more strength."


Report: Angels' Garrett Richards appears in line to start Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) With Matt Shoemaker scheduled to start Monday and Hector Santiago on Tuesday, it appears as if Angels pitcher Garrett Richards will be in line to start Sunday against the Astros, reports MLB.com.

Richards, who is coming off knee surgery, threw a bullpen session on Friday after a Triple-A rehab start on Tuesday. After his session, Richards said he's been able to accomplish every bench mark that was required of him during his rehab.

Richards went 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 168 2/3 innings in 2014.


Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker strikes out seven in win Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker allowed three runs on six hits in Los Angeles' 6-3 win over the Rangers Monday.

Shoemaker ran into trouble in the first inning when he allowed three singles to the first four batters he faced, leading to a run. He then allowed a double to Mitch Moreland driving in another run before surrendering a sacrifice fly.

"Once I get into the dugout, I can maybe reflect on it for four seconds and just forget it," Shoemaker said after the game, per MLB.com. "There's nothing you can do about it; it already happened. It's like, 'Man, that inning [stunk] terribly.' But then it's, 'OK, let's move on.'"

Shoemaker settled in after that and allowed just two hits in his final 5 1/3 innings of work.

"There's a presence to him," manager Mike Scioscia said. "He's not out there all hyper and getting distracted with the situation. He showed last year he can really pitch his way out of trouble. That's just a great game, from where it started to where it ended."

Shoemaker struck out seven in his start and now boasts a 4.38 ERA in two wins. He will look to keep rolling Sunday against the Astros.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"There's some things that might happen that might affect somebody's standing on the team in a positive or negative way, just to get the whole roster to be as deep as you can."

"There's some things that might happen that might affect somebody's standing on the team in a positive or negative way, just to get the whole roster to be as deep as you can."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker heads into spring training this year with more security than last year. He doesn't want to take a lackadaisical approach to the 2015 season., reports MLB.com.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia was happy with how Shoemaker looked in his debut.

"I thought he was great," Scioscia said. "Really liked how he made pitches with his fastball. He had good command, was down in the zone, good angle, pitched well with his fastball, brought his offspeed pitches in. A great first outing for him."


Matt Shoemaker allows unearned run in Game 2 of ALDS


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.
