Los Angeles Angels
Matt Shoemaker was really good when he came on as a rookie in 2014, pitching the Angels into the playoffs as the American League West champions. He posted some decent numbers the last two seasons but looks a little out of fashion so far in 2017.
Well maybe not. Shoemaker has two starts of five innings and two runs allowed. It was just a start in between when the Mariners got him for six runs that hurts Shoe’s numbers right now. He looks steady.
He’ll probably have to deal with Carlos Correa who should return from a scary hand injury over the weekend when he took a 94 mph fastball off the right hand. It was just a contusion though, and he should make a full recovery.
Correa’s Astros will go for three out of four at home against the Halos after a tight win last night behind another great outing from Dallas Keuchel. With the former Cy Young back into form, the rest of the ‘Stros rotation kind of falls into place.
Lance McCullers began his season with two straight quality starts but got knocked around just a little bit his last time out against Oakland.
Mike Trout is just 1-for-12 in his career against McCullers and Houston has won all three of his starts to this point. The ‘Stros are big favorites again on Thursday afternoon.
