The Angels may have an undercover ace with Matt Shoemaker as he is now sharing history with one of the best pitchers in the game. That pitcher being Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw who has been one of the hottest pitchers the past months. In shoemaker’s last outing, he reached history again.
Via Matt Birch of the Los Angeles Angels media relations dept. @ Matt Shoemaker is second pitcher this season to finish a month with 45+ strikeouts & five-or-fewer walks (Clayton Kershaw in May).
Another interesting stat is that in that month, Shoemaker did not record a win. Yes that is correct, as the bullpen or the offense did not even show up. Matt Shoemaker is on an another level this season, yet sadly his record does that show that.
Could this be a good trade bait for opposing teams? Stay tuned for more information on this..
