Tropeano has a 4.09 ERA with 12 strikeouts and two walks in two starts for Triple-A Salt Lake. He'll take the mound Thursday against the A's in place of C.J. Wilson, who has been pushed to Saturday.

Angels SP Matt Shoemaker struggles during Monday's loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker started to struggle during the first inning of Monday's loss to the Athletics and he never improved.

After giving up a run in the first, Shoemaker pitched a scoreless second, but ran into trouble in the third and fourth innings. Shoemaker gave up a three-run home run to Stephen Vogt in the third and failed to get out of the fourth inning after being replaced following a solo home run to Marcus Semien.

"Matty never settled in to what he does best," manager Mike Scioscia said after the game, per MLB.com. "That's strike one, pound the zone and change speeds. We'll turn the page on Matty for this one."

Shoemaker (2-1) surrendered five runs on seven hits over three innings. He struck out two and walked three, while taking the loss. It was the first time in his three starts this season that he failed to pitch at least six innings. His ERA rose from 4.38 to 6.46.

"He was out of sync from the beginning," Scioscia said. "When he got 0-2 to Vogt, he left a split right over the plate. These guys aren't robots. They're going to be out of sync once in a while. Matt usually makes adjustments -- he just wasn't able to do that tonight."

His next expected to start will be Saturday against the Rangers.

Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker looking for more velocity
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker is throwing well to begin the season, posting a 2-0 record in two starts. But Shoemaker is continuing to look for improvements, mostly for more velocity on his fastball, according to MLB.com.

"For me, that's usually how it is," said Shoemaker. "I feel like early on in the season, with any season, I get stronger. I don't feel anything different. I think it's just the strength and getting into a rhythm."

Shoemaker is averaging 88.9 mph on his fastball this season after averaging 91.3 in 2014. Shoemaker thinks it is mostly about his recent weight loss.

"That's what it usually does. I'm not very far off, which is a good thing - but it is kind of funny how quickly I can regain the weight.

"I feel like when I'm at that weight, there's more there, just because there's more behind the ball and I have more strength."

Report: Angels' Garrett Richards appears in line to start Sunday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With Matt Shoemaker scheduled to start Monday and Hector Santiago on Tuesday, it appears as if Angels pitcher Garrett Richards will be in line to start Sunday against the Astros, reports MLB.com.

Richards, who is coming off knee surgery, threw a bullpen session on Friday after a Triple-A rehab start on Tuesday. After his session, Richards said he's been able to accomplish every bench mark that was required of him during his rehab.

Richards went 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 168 2/3 innings in 2014.

Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker strikes out seven in win Monday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker allowed three runs on six hits in Los Angeles' 6-3 win over the Rangers Monday.

Shoemaker ran into trouble in the first inning when he allowed three singles to the first four batters he faced, leading to a run. He then allowed a double to Mitch Moreland driving in another run before surrendering a sacrifice fly.

"Once I get into the dugout, I can maybe reflect on it for four seconds and just forget it," Shoemaker said after the game, per MLB.com. "There's nothing you can do about it; it already happened. It's like, 'Man, that inning [stunk] terribly.' But then it's, 'OK, let's move on.'"

Shoemaker settled in after that and allowed just two hits in his final 5 1/3 innings of work.

"There's a presence to him," manager Mike Scioscia said. "He's not out there all hyper and getting distracted with the situation. He showed last year he can really pitch his way out of trouble. That's just a great game, from where it started to where it ended."

Shoemaker struck out seven in his start and now boasts a 4.38 ERA in two wins. He will look to keep rolling Sunday against the Astros.
