Angels | Matt Shoemaker has career night

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 21:02:09 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker allowed six hits with no walks and a career-high 13 strikeouts in his first major league complete game and shutout Saturday, July 16, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker improved to 2-4 at home while lowering his ERA to 3.23 in nine outings at the Big A. He has also allowed just three homers in 55 2/3 innings at home this season, a huge key to his success. He is a must-start fantasy option at home, but a bit shaky with a 3-5 record and 5.01 ERA in nine outings on the road.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker spins six scoreless

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 23:50:38 -0700

Los Angeles Angels SP Matt Shoemaker allowed five hits and a walk over six scoreless frames Monday, June 27, in a no-decision against the Houston Astros. He also struck out six batters in the 99-pitch quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker has a 3-8 record overall, but he whittled his ERA down to 4.12 and he has a respectable 1.26 WHIP. He has received little run support this month despite pitching better, going 0-3 with a 2.14 ERA in six June starts. He has re-emerged as a must-start in all fantasy formats despite the lack of wins. He has six or more strikeouts in eight straight outings.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker continues nice run

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 15:35:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker churned out a quality start Wednesday, June 22, versus the Houston Astros, albeit in defeat. The 29-year-old worked 7 1/3 innings, yielding three runs on eight hits and two walks. He also recorded seven strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Who saw this run coming out of Shoemaker? The right-hander possessed a disgusting 8.49 ERA as recently as just over a month ago, but he's actually been sensational since then to shave more than four runs off that number. In fact, he's pitched into the seventh inning in seven straight starts now, while recording three double-digit strikeout efforts over that span. Shoemaker not only deserves employment in AL-only leagues, but he also boasts some deep mixed league appeal as well.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker solid in no-decision

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 22:47:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker allowed two runs -- one earned -- on six hits in six innings of work against the Oakland Athletics on Friday, June 17. Shoemaker walked one and struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: Can we get Shoemaker some run support? Only six starters have received less than his 2.85 RPG, and it's the biggest reason Shoemaker is 3-7 on the year. Over his last six starts, the righty is 1-2 despite a 1.83 ERA, a 0.88 WHIP and an obscene 55:2 strikeout-to-walk ratio across 44 1/3 innings. Shoemaker has mixed league appeal even without the wins.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker could make history

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 14:38:09 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker has recorded three consecutive starts with at least eight strikeouts and zero walks. Nobody has ever had four straight such outings since the mound moved to 60 feet, six inches in 1893.

Fantasy Tip: Just further proof of what a crazy game baseball can be. Throughout the past few months, Shoemaker has bounced between Class AAA and the majors, as he's mostly been getting lit up by opposing hitters since spring training. All of a sudden, he's on the verge of some pretty intriguing history. At the very least, he's resurfaced as a relevant name again in deep fantasy leagues.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker talks about improvements

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 12:58:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker said it is his approach on the mound over his past three starts that has enabled him to cut his ERA from 8.49 to 5.50.

"I think earlier the mentality got away from me," Shoemaker said. "I was kind of out there throwing, and now I'm actually pitching. I think that's the biggest thing, the biggest adjustment. I'm trying to execute each pitch, have a purpose. Earlier on, I feel like mentally I was just throwing. I'd grab the ball and throw it, and not have intent behind the pitch."

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker will need to string together a few more solid outings before he can be considered anything more than a streaming candidate in the majority of seasonal leagues. He should be left to the waiver wire outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only setups. It is encouraging to see him sitting with a 9.1 K/9, though.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker pitches well

Sat, 28 May 2016 05:41:10 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker allowed two runs on seven hits in 8 1/3 innings against the Houston Astros Friday, May 27, to pick up his third win of the season. He struck out 11 batters during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker is starting to turn things around after allowing only two runs in his last two starts, but he still has a 5.96 ERA. He is scheduled to face the Detroit Tigers in his next season and may not be the best option for owners because of the matchup.
