Shoemaker (2-3) earned the win over Detroit on Friday, pitching five scoreless innings with five strikeouts, four hits and two walks. Shoemaker took down Detroit for the second time this season, and this was perhaps his best of six starts in 2021. Only two of the six baserunners Shoemaker allowed made it beyond first base. The 34-year-old right-hander lowered his ERA to 6.43 with a 1.50 WHIP and 19:10 k:BB across 28 innings this season. He tentatively lines up to face the heavy-hitting White Sox next week.
Shoemaker (1-3) went 3.1 innings and allowed nine runs (eight earned) on eight hits and two walks with no strikeouts in an 11-3 loss to the Royals on Saturday. Shoemaker allowed two runs in the first and third innings before surrendering five in an abbreviated fourth. He's been solid against inferior opponents but has struggled against quality teams and is best served as a streaming option.
Shoemaker (1-2) took the loss Sunday versus the Pirates. He allowed two runs on six hits and a walk with two strikeouts in 5.1 innings. Shoemaker wasn't bad, but he allowed a pair of runs in the first inning, and the Twins' offense never caught up. The veteran right-hander has a 5.49 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 14:6 K:BB through 19.2 innings in 2021. His next start is expected to be Saturday versus the Royals.
Shoemaker (1-1) took the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Athletics, coughing up five runs on four hits and four walks over 3.1 innings. He failed to strike out a batter. The right-hander threw only 39 of 67 pitches for strikes before getting the hook, and when Shoemaker was over the plate, he paid for it, as Mitch Moreland took him deep twice. Shoemaker will carry a 6.28 ERA and 12:5 K:BB through 14.2 innings into his next outing, set for Sunday at home against the Pirates.
