Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker pitched well in return from injury.
Insight: He was dealing with an oblique injury, but showed no ill-effects on Friday. Shoemaker went six innings, allowing an unearned run on five hits, while striking out six. Kevin Jepsen took the loss in the extras, giving up three runs (two earned), in 2/3 of an inning.
 
10/3/2014 9:38:00 AM
Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker (oblique) has thrown bullpen sessions, but Friday's start will be his first since Sept. 15.
Insight: Shoemaker was a stellar 16-4 with a 3.04 ERA and 1.074 WHIP, but there is no telling how he returns from this injury.
 
9/30/2014 8:28:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker (oblique) pitched another bullpen session on Tuesday according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: He took breaks to simulate multiple innings. Shoemaker is expected to pitch Game 3 of the ALDS on Oct. 5. He has been out with a strained oblique since Sept. 16.
 
9/29/2014 5:38:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker (oblique) played catch on Monday without any setbacks and will throw another bullpen session Tuesday according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: Shoemaker still expects to start Game 3 of the ALDS on Oct. 5. He has been out with a strained oblique since Sept. 16. Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson are slated to start Games 1 and 2 for the Angels.
 
9/28/2014 6:01:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker (oblique) completed a bullpen session on Sunday and remains confident that he will pitch in the ALDS according to the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Shoemaker has been out since Sept. 16 with a left oblique strain. He admitted that he felt a little bit of tightness in his oblique, but Shoemaker said he feels like he can pitch through it. The Angels are planning to start Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson in Games 1 and 2, so expect Shoemaker to start in Game 3.
 
9/22/2014 8:46:00 PM
Description: Angels manager Mike Scioscia said the chances Matt Shoemaker will pitch this week are "very remote" according to MLB.com.
Insight: On a positive note, Scioscia expects Shoemaker to be ready for the playoffs as he played catch on Monday and felt fine. The Angels would prefer Shoemaker get a tune-up start before the playoffs, but the main goal is to ensure that the 27-year-old is completely healthy.
 
9/19/2014 9:02:00 PM
Description: Angels manager Mike Scioscia is considering using a three-man rotation in the American League Division Series.
Insight: In order to do that, starter Matt Shoemaker needs to return 100 percent healthy. Shoemaker left Monday's with a mild left oblique strain. The Angels are confident that he will return before postseason play. If Scioscia uses the three-man rotation, Jered Weaver would pitch on short rest.
 
9/16/2014 9:07:00 AM
Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker will undergo an MRI in the coming days, afer leaving last night's start with slight discomfort, on the left side of his rib cage.
Insight: The removal from the game seemed to be precautionary, as the Angels were up 8-1 at the time. However, the fact that he needs to be checked out is a little alarming. Nevertheless, Shoemaker was fantastic on Monday night. He went 7 2/3 innings, allowing only one earned run, and improving his record to 16-4 with a 3.04 ERA. Assuming everything comes back clean, Shoemaker has another favorable matchup on Saturday, against the Ramgers.
 
Hot9/15/2014 1:02:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker has had a tremendous second half of the season, and that trend has continued over his previous three starts.
Insight: All signs point to Shoemaker continuing his stellar play. Not only is he 2-0 with a 2.04 ERA over his past three starts, Shoemaker has also been dominant since the All-Star break (8-2, 1.95 ERA) and at home (8-3 2.20 ERA). With Garrett Richards on the shelf, it looks like LA has found their new ace.
 
Hot8/31/2014 7:40:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker pitched his third straight beautiful start, throwing seven shutout innings, allowing five hits, striking out seven and walking none.
Insight: That makes 21 and 2/3 scoreless innings in Shoemaker's last three starts. He has also given up just eight hits, three walks while striking out 22. This is just what the Angels needed with Garrett Richards out for the season, and it's just what fantasy owners want heading into September.
 
Hot8/27/2014 3:25:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker has given Los Angeles exactly what it needs in the wake of Garrett Richards' season-ending knee injury.
Insight: In his last two starts, Shoemaker has thrown 14 2/3 scoreless innings, struck out 15 and allowed three hits. He's won four straight games and is 13-4 with a 3.33 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and 108 Ks in 110 2/3 innings this season.
 
Hot8/21/2014 10:32:00 PM
Description: With Garrett Richards going down the Angels needed an outing like this from Matt Shoemaker - 7 2/3 IP, one hit and nine strikeouts.
Insight: Shoemaker's record jumps to 12-4 and his ERA falls to 3.56. It's surprising he gets so little publicity and fantasy attention (36 percent ownership in Yahoo) considering he's posted a dozen wins and is striking out almost a batter an inning.
 
7/7/2014 9:44:00 PM
Description: Matt Shoemaker will remain in the Angels rotation, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Hector Santiago will move to the bullpen. Shoemaker has been very good in three of his last four starts, but he gave up eight runs on 11 hits at Kansas City on June 27 and has a 4.35 ERA overall in 14 appearances (nine starts). The 27-year-old also has a career 4.52 ERA in 786 2/3 minor league innings.
 
6/17/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker did a good job of keeping the Indians in check Tuesday at Progressive Field.
Insight: Cleveland managed just two runs against him in eight innings. Shoemaker's ten strikeouts Tuesday were a career-high. Fantasy owners shouldn't get too attached as top prospect Tyler Skaggs is expected to take Shoemaker's place in the starting rotation later this week.
 
5/13/2014 10:25:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles right-hander Matt Shoemaker registered his first career win Tuesday against the Phillies.
Insight: Shoemaker made it through five innings, allowing three hits and two earned runs. Tuesday was the 27-year-old's second major league start and his first of the 2014 season. The Angels haven't announced who their starter will be Sunday versus Tampa Bay but don't be surprised if Shoemaker gets the nod.
