Angels SP Matt Shoemaker Placed on Disabled List

In a move that many saw coming, the Los Angeles Angels have placed starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker on the disabled list. The 33-year-old righty joins a long line of Los Angeles' opening day rotation mates to find themselves on the disabled list. 

Shoemaker exited his start on Wednesday early with soreness in his arm, which the team later diagnosed as forearm soreness. After he couldn't throw a bullpen session the next day, the Angels made the decision to place the right-handed pitcher on the DL. Shoemaker had been a core part of the Angels rotation this season and pitched quite well with a 8.00 K/9 and an acceptable 4.52 ERA in a year where offenses seem to be exploding and ERAs are rising.

While Shoemaker's stay on the disabled list should be short, the team has not announced who will take his place in the rotation for the time being. 25-year-old righty Parker Bridwell will come up and could slide into Los Angeles' rotation. Across 27 1/3 innings this season for Salt Lake, Bridwell posted a 4.28 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. Fantasy owners in all formats will want to avoid him.
