Daily Pitcher Duels: July 30th

It’s a pretty lean day overall for MLB pitching matchups, but we’ve dug our heels in to find the very best ones for you. Check ’em out: Matt Shoemaker (LAA) vs. Scott Kazmir (HOU) 8:10 p.m. ET We profile an Angels–Astros matchup for the second straight day, and it’s not quite as powerful as the first, but maybe also better than it appears on the surface.

Boxscore Breakdown #93: Kicking and screaming – Angels 7, Twins 0

Matt Shoemaker is probably going to get booted out of the rotation, but he’s going out kicking and screaming. Matt has been showing signs of turning things around in recent weeks and he completed that turnaround in this game- just in time to lose his job. That’s not fair, but it is kind of a good problem to have. Granted, it sucks if you are Matt Shoemaker, but as a fan of a...

Series Recap: Angels split with Blue Jays, Shoemaker’s split has seen better days

The four-game set in Toronto was bookended by a couple of ugly losses, but the Angels are still in fairly good shape heading into Memorial Day weekend. The club has either split or won each of its last five series, narrowing ever-so-slightly the gap between themselves and the first place Astros, who continue to play well.

Boxscore Breakdown #31: It’s the great pumpkin, Matt Shoemaker – Astros 6, Angels 5

You better get back home, Cinderella because the clock is about to strike midnight. For the second start in a row, Matt Shoemaker surrendered three homers. For the second time in four starts, he lasted just three innings. I really like Shoemaker and am actively rooting for him, but, boy, that’s rough. He’s now given up 10 homers in just six starts to give him an ugly 2.87...

2015 Player Projection: Matt Shoemaker

Matt Shoemaker and his luxuriant beard emerged from obscurity to save the Angels 2014 season. Can his Cinderella story continue in 2015 or will he turn back into a pumpkin? What happened in 2014?Oh, nothing, just Matt Shoemaker coming out of nowhere to become arguably the second-best pitcher on the Angels staff. Honestly, it was an upset when Shoe made the team as a long reliever...

Wife of Angels pitcher makes Twitter crack after lost no-hitter

Matt Shoemaker is, by all accounts, having a pretty decent rookie season for the Los Angeles Angels. His beard game is tremendous, he’s got that 12-4 record and, based on this tweet to Will Middlebrooks Thursday night…his wife, currently expecting their first child, is top notch. Shoemaker’s wife Danielle sent out the “butthole” message shortly after her husband gave up...

Scouting the Opposing Pitcher: Matt Shoemaker

Tonight, the Phillies face Matt Shoemaker, a 6’2″, 27-year old righty out of Eastern Michigan University. Shoemaker is making just his second Major League after being recalled by the Halos. Shoemaker spent most of his time in the minors as a starter but always delivers from the stretch. He releases his fastball from between 75 and 80 degrees consistently and hitters are able...
