first_img“He’s trying to get back his game at the major league level,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “He missed most of the season. There are going to be some rough spots here or there. He’s at times pitching very well and at times missing his spots, getting behind and making mistakes. The stuff is there. Maybe the command isn’t as consistent as we know it can be with Matt.”While the Angels try to figure out what Shoemaker can be going forward, they also have to consider the fact that he’s going to be arbitration-eligible for the third time this winter, due to make somewhere north of $5 million.Shoemaker said he’s got no doubt that he can again be a frontline starter. He said there were moments even during Thursday’s game when was pitching to his capabilities, but it all came undone with a hanging slider.And then the game got even more out of hand after he left.“We were out of this early,” Scioscia said, “and it kept getting worse.” He then gave up four straight hits to start the third, with two runs scoring. After strikeouts to Khris Davis and Matt Olson got him to the edge of escaping the jam, he left a slider over the plate that Stephen Piscotty blasted over the left field fence, for a three-run homer.“I can deal with them putting a few singles together,” Shoemaker said. “That’s going to happen. They scored a couple runs. The frustrating part … is to battle to two outs, get two strikes and then make a bad pitch. I’ve just got to limit it right there.”That was all for Shoemaker, who now has allowed 11 earned runs in 17-1/3 innings in four games.As the Angels’ front office makes it evaluations heading into the winter, they likely aren’t placing too much weight on what happens with Shoemaker in September. However, looking at the entire 99 games and 537 innings of his major league career also yields confusing results.In 2014, he went 16-4 with a 3.04 ERA, finishing second in the AL Rookie of the Year balloting and helping the Angels to the playoffs. His ERA jumped to 4.46 in 2015, a year that included him getting demoted briefly to Triple-A.Shoemaker also struggled at the beginning of 2016, before turning it around and pitching brilliantly for most of the second half. But the second half of 2017 and almost all of 2018 have been spent on the disabled list. He believes his problems were finally solved in May, when a split pronator tendon was diagnosed and repaired in surgery. It’s left Shoemaker in spring training form now.Related Articles Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter center_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield PreviousOakland Athletics’ Khris Davis (2) slides past Los Angeles Angels catcher Francisco Arcia (37) to score on a run on a single by Stephen Piscotty during the fourth inning in a baseball game in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018.

(AP Photo/Tony Avelar)ExpandOAKLAND — The Angels’ record-breaking bad day, one that ended with a catcher making history as a pitcher, started with Matt Shoemaker still trying to find himself.Shoemaker, whose recent seasons have been marked by issues of health and ineffectiveness, gave up five runs and didn’t make it out of the third inning, sending the Angels on their way to a 21-3 loss to the loss to the Oakland A’s on Thursday afternoon.It was the most lopsided loss in franchise history and tied the club record for most runs allowed. The last three were allowed by catcher Francisco Arcia, who chucked 65 mph “fastballs” over the plate for two innings.Then Arcia hit a homer in the top of the ninth, becoming the first player in big league history to pitch, catch and homer in the same game. “I’ll take whatever positive I can,” Arcia said.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.It did little to ease the frustration elsewhere in the Angels clubhouse, particularly with what Shoemaker called an “atrocious” performance.Four starts into his return from nearly two seasons missed due to injury, Shoemaker has scuffled since pitching five scoreless innings on Sept. 3.He gave up three runs in each of his next two starts – although with an encouraging eight strikeouts in 4-2/3 innings the last time out – before Thursday’s outing.Shoemaker pitched a perfect first inning, with two strikeouts. In the second, he worked around two walks but did not allow a run. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
