Matt Shoemaker (SP, LAA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

The Mechanic - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Leagues

ANALYSIS: Matt Shoemaker has been far too good for far too long to only be owned in 26% of leagues. At this time of year, when a lot of managers in roto leagues have stopped paying attention, you have a lot of opportunities to be a rotoBaller and stream high quality starters, starters that would never be this available on the waiver wire in April / May.  But Shoemaker is more than a stream - he's a guy you can and should own in any deep leagues and many shallow leagues too.  He plays for one of the highest scoring clubs in the league in the Angels which has helped him rack up 11 W, and he has a 93:18 K:BB ratio over 96 IP.  His 3.84 ERA is a tad high, but he's been a tad unlucky at times too.  In his last seven starts Shoemaker has allowed more than 2 ER just once, with a 40:6 K:BB ratio and 6 W. That's a filthy fantasy line. Pick him up now if you need any Ks, Ws, or WHIP.
