Angels set post-break rotation; decisions still need to be made


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/16/2015) 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.

Angels alter rotation for pitchers Matt Shoemaker, Hector Santiago


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia has altered his rotation for the next few games. With two off-days scheduled over the coming week, Scioscia was able to give some his pitchers some extra rest.

Right-hander Matt Shoemaker will now start on Tuesday against the Rays, and Hector Santiago will go next Friday against the A's, according to the Los Angeles Times

Shoemaker hasn't started since Sunday and will go six games in between starts. Santiago, who pitched five innings on Wednesday, is also slated to get six days off.

Scioscia had already indicated that Shoemaker could be available out of the bullpen. It is not known if Santiago could also pitch in relief if needed.


Matt Shoemaker available out of 'pen as Angels shuffle rotation


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) The Angels are dealing with a pair of off-days in the next week, leading the team to go with four starters the next time through the rotation and making Matt Shoemaker available out of the bullpen over the next few days, MLB.com reports.

"We don't want some guys to get so far behind where they're pitching in seven or eight days," manager Mike Scioscia said. "The fact of having five guys and really having five guys throwing the ball pretty well, you don't want to disrupt all five."

Shoemaker, who has delivered back-to-back strong outings, will likely rejoin the rotation toward the end of next week.

"I think that the best way to do it is, we know Matt can help us in the 'pen," Scioscia said. "He has at times before. Won't be a bad thing for him, because he'll get a couple more bullpens in to keep finding his release point and get his pitches down in the zone."

Shoemaker could re-enter the rotation earlier than expected if one of the team's other four starts needs an extra day of rest.


Angels SP Matt Shoemaker goes 5 1/3 innings in no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/31/2015) Angels starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker clocked in one of his best performances of the season in his team's 4-2 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Shoemaker tossed 5 1/3 innings, allowing just one earned run and striking out five batters in the no-decision.

Shoemaker (3-4) has thrown 56 2/3 innings this season with a 5.09 ERA.


Angels' Matt Shoemaker has seven scoreless in no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) 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

"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.
