      Angels SP Matt Shoemaker dealing with arm issue

      Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker will be pushed off his scheduled start Tuesday against the Athletics due to an arm issue, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. Shoemaker was expected to throw a bullpen session Sunday after he had his previous turn in the Angels' rotation skipped, but it sounds like he was experiencing some renewed soreness in his throwing arm, which has been an ongoing problem this month. Nick Tropeano is the leading candidate to pick up the start Tuesday in Shoemaker's stead.

      Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker allows four runs in Sunday's loss

      Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker allowed four runs on six hits while striking out one and walking two over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Twins on Sunday. It was Shoemaker's first start since Sept. 1 after recovering from a forearm injury, and he was not especially sharp, surrendering two home runs and throwing 71 pitches before being removed. Shoemaker is expected to make his last start of the season Sunday against the Mariners, but he could be a risky play as he looks to get his feet under him following the absence. He has tallied a 4.46 ERA with 116 strikeouts in 135 1/3 innings.

The 28-year-old, who hasn't pitched since Sept. 1, should be in line for at least one more start after Sunday.

      Angels SP Matt Shoemaker a no-go for Tuesday start

Mike Scioscia has declined to reveal who will start in his place, though Nick Tropeano handled that duty last time Shoemaker was scratched. Shoemaker has been sidelined since Sept. 1, but has not been placed on the disabled list. His absence, however, appears certain to be at least 15 days.

      Angels' Matt Shoemaker won't start Monday due to forearm strain

      Angels right-hander Matt Shoemaker will have his next scheduled start skipped. Shoemaker is dealing with a minor forearm strain, and will not start Monday against the Dodgers. Shoemaker will likely be pushed back at least five days, meaning he will not take the mound until at least Sept. 13 against the Astros. The righty is not all that concerned about the injury. An MRI confirmed no structural damage, and he should only miss one start. Nick Tropeano will get the start on Monday in place of Shoemaker.
