Shoemaker (knee) suffered a torn ACL and is out for the season, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Shoemaker suffered a knee injury Saturday that was originally diagnosed as a sprain. However, after further testing brought the dreaded diagnosis that his season was over. Sean Reid-Foley is a likely candidate to take Shoemaker's spot in the rotation while Ryan Borucki (elbow) and Clayton Richard (knee) remain out with injuries.
Shoemaker was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left knee sprain. Due to scheduled off days, the Blue Jays can operate with a four-man rotation for a while, next needing a fifth starter on May 4, although Shoemaker would be eligible to return as early as May 1. If Shoemaker's injury lingers well into May, Sean Reid-Foley could be an option to rejoin the big-league rotation.

Shoemaker sprained his left knee Saturday and will undergo an MRI on Sunday to determine the extent of the damage, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Shoemaker suffered the injury while chasing a baserunner in a rundown. He appeared to be in some pain following the incident, but a return timeline won't become clear until the results of the tests are known.
Shoemaker left Saturday's game against the Athletics after three innings with an apparent leg injury, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports. Shoemaker appeared to twist his knee while taking part in a rundown and was in considerable pain. It's a tough break for a pitcher who had been pitching quite well after getting through a run of arm injuries. The nature and severity of this particular problem are not yet clear. Making matters worse, Shoemaker would have been in line for an easy win had he not have had to exit early, with the Blue Jays up way ahead early in a 10-1 win.
