Angels | Matt Shoemaker without timetable

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 15:37:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker (forearm) said his forearm feels "much better," but he still does not know when he will pitch again. He is hopeful of pitching again this season, though.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has been extremely inconsistent this season, so counting on him for another start in seasonal leagues is ill-advised. At this point, he can be replaced, as at best, he is nothing more than a desperation start in the majority of formats anyway.

Angels | Pitching injuries mounting for Angels

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 15:25:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SPs Jered Weaver (shoulder) and Matt Shoemaker (forearm) and RPs Huston Street (groin) and Joe Smith (ankle) are all nursing injuries.

Fantasy Tip: The Angels signed free-agent Mat Latos, but his role will be fluid and largely depend on the status of Weaver ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) and Shoemaker ($5,600, 11.2% of cap). Street will not pitch again during the regular season, and Smith is questionable. The closing duties are expected to be split up, too, so there isn't a lot of value chasing saves from the Los Angeles bullpen. Stay tuned for updates on Shoemaker and Weaver.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker could miss start

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 17:20:40 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker (forearm) continues to be bothered by right forearm stiffness. It is unknown if he will be able to make his next start Tuesday, Sept. 29, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: If Shoemaker ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is unable to pitch Tuesday, Nick Tropeano ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) would likely receive the starting nod. However, Tropeano is 1-2 with a 5.66 ERA through his first four starts at home and would not make a great FantasyScore pitching option.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker could be pushed back

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 10:00:54 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker (forearm) had "normal stiffness" after his outing Sunday, Sept. 20, according to manager Mike Scioscia. Because of an off day Thursday, Sept. 24, Shoemaker could be pushed back to next Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) would be lined up to face the Oakland Athletics next Tuesday. While the bearded right-hander is a risk with a 4.46 ERA on the year, this matchup at least garners consideration for your second pitching spot on FantasyScore as a sleeper.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker could start Sunday

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 15:17:46 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker (forearm) threw a two-inning simulated game Tuesday, Sept. 15, and he's an option to start against the Minnesota Twins Sunday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't make much sense to use Shoemaker ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) on FantasyScore on Sunday if he returns against a Twins team that is very capable of putting up crooked numbers against a pitcher fresh off an injury.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker won't start Tuesday

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 10:02:26 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker (forearm) will not start against the Seattle Mariners Tuesday, Sept. 15, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

Fantasy Tip: Scioscia did not say who would pitch Tuesday, although Nick Tropeano ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) got the starting nod in place of Shoemaker the last time his turn came up in the rotation. It is unknown when he will be able to return to action.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker plays catch again

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 21:17:07 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker (forearm) played catch at a distance of approximately 120 feet Wednesday, Sept. 9. It was his third straight day of throwing. He might be able to throw from a mound as soon as Saturday, Sept. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) might return as soon as Tuesday against the Mariners barring any setbacks, but FantasyScore players should wait to see him officially return and prove his health before taking a chance on him.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker plays catch

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 18:55:43 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker (forearm) was able to play light catch Monday, Sept. 7, and he said his forearm felt "really good." It is still too early to determine when he'll return to the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Wait until Shoemaker ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks before relying upon him in FantasyScore again.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker has struggled against A's

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 10:15:50 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker is 0-2 with a 7.85 ERA in four starts against the Oakland Athletics this season. He has only one win in six career games against the A's. Shoemaker is facing Oakland Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Shoemaker ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has struggled against the A's this year and in general for the Angels could work in your favor as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore. He's also allowed frequent long balls, but he'll be in a park that suppresses homers, and he's coming off a solid outing against the Detroit Tigers.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker earns win Thursday

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:08:58 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker (6-9) allowed one hit over 7 1/3 scoreless innings in a victory over the Detroit Tigers Thursday, Aug. 27, with one walk and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) had been sent down to Class AAA Salt Lake earlier in the month following a pair of ineffective starts but was dominant in his first game back Thursday. If he remains in the starting rotation, he could make his next outing against the Oakland Athletics next week.
