Today the Angels have officially announced that RHP Matt Shoemaker has been demoted to AAA Salt Lake. Shoemaker (1-4, 9.15 ERA) has struggled early on this season. Yesterday he was shelled for 7 runs in 2 1/3 innings against the Rangers.

Just two seasons ago in 2014, Shoemaker posted a 16-4 record and a 3.04 ERA.

Shoemaker’s struggles reinforce the Angels’ need for starting pitching this offseason. With Shoemaker demoted and Heaney and Wilson on the DL, the Angels will turn to Nick Tropeano.

Today the Angels have called up Shane Robinson and AJ Achter from AAA. Craig Gentry has also landed on the DL.
