Angels | Matt Shoemaker getting bumped?

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 16:54:51 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker could be removed from the starting rotation when SP Jered Weaver (hip) is ready to return. Shoemaker could be moved to the bullpen or sent down to Class AAA.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has a 4.85 ERA on the season, but he allowed two in each of his last three starts. It has been five starts since Shoemaker struck out more than three hitters, and he doesn't have enough upside to be considered on FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker continues TB mastery

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 04:35:47 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker won his third start in as many tries against the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday, June 9. Shoemaker allowed two runs on five hits in 6 1/3 innings as part of an 8-2 win.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is struggling a bit this season after having a red-hot second half in 2014. Still, he pitched well enough to earn a big win and improve to 4-4 overall. Keep an eye on Shoemaker and his matchups and act accordingly, as not every game Shoemaker pitches will be a favorable one like this.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker earns fourth win

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 20:46:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker allowed two runs on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts during the Angels' 8-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has been incredibly inconsistent this season, but has now allowed just three earned runs and 11 hits through 18 2/3 innings over his last three starts. He was dominant in 2014, and given his recent string of respectable starts, Shoemaker stands out as a solid bargain option for FantasyScore players. Still, you'll want to be careful about who you start him against.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker starting Tuesday

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 14:33:02 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker will make the start Tuesday, June 9, with SP Hector Santiago being pushed back to Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) will return to the rotation to face the Tampa Bay Rays next week. It's a nice matchup for him on FantasyScore, since the Rays are ranked 24th in baseball with a .675 OPS against right-handed pitchers and have struggled to score runs all year. The Oakland A's present a solid matchup for Santiago next Friday, as well.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker to 'pen temporarily

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 10:34:24 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker will head to the bullpen temporarily, as the team won't need a fifth starter due to upcoming off days Thursday, June 4, and Monday, June 8, according to manager Mike Scioscia. Shoemaker will likely rejoin the rotation at the end of next week. Shoemaker didn't allow a home run in his last two starts after giving up an American League-high 13 in his first eight starts.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to hold Shoemaker ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) if you own him, especially after his last two solid starts showed the beginning of what could be a turnaround, at least in the homer-allowance department.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker's job in danger?

Fri, 22 May 2015 08:48:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker appears to be on a short leash, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia was noncommittal on making a roster move just yet. "I think that Matty has thrown some really good games so far this year and some games where he struggled," he said. "We want to see what direction he's going to go. If we were talking after the game he just pitched in Baltimore, you guys were asking a lot of different questions. It's in there. He just needs to find the consistency." SP Andrew Heaney has pitched well in Class AAA ball and could be poised to take Shoemaker's spot in the rotation if the latter continues to struggle.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has surrendered nine home runs in his last four starts and shouldn't be played by fantasy owners until he shows signs of righting the ship. Heaney could be a speculative add in deep setups.
