Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker will remain in the rotation, manager Mike Scioscia said Monday, July 7.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim P Wade LeBlanc will be available out of the bullpen against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, May 25, and he is the leading candidate to start against the Seattle Mariners Thursday, May 29.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker has allowed just three runs in 11 innings in two starts since his recall from Triple-A Salt Lake, and he will continue to fill the rotation spot of the ineffective SP Hector Santiago. Shoemaker's next turn will come Saturday, May 24, against the Kansas City Royals.
Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker has beaten the likes of Cliff Lee and David Price head-to-head. While he has a little more permanence, he still needs to continue to pitch well. If Santiago turns it up at Salt Lake and Shoemaker starts to struggle, his rotation job could be short-lived. Use him only in AL-only fantasy play for now.
