The Red Sox are reportedly interested in signing free agent RHP Matt Shoemaker, per Jon Morosi of the MLB Network.
The Red Sox are looking to add pitching to the team’s starting rotation and expressed interest in free agent RHP Matt Shoemaker. He started Game 1 for the Blue Jays during the ALDS in 2020. Shoemaker owned a (0-1) record along with 4.71 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and a 26:9 K:BB over 28 2/3 innings last season. The 34-year-old would be an immediate upgrade to a Red Sox rotation that struggled mightily in 2020.
Matt Shoemaker tossed three scoreless innings in the Blue Jays' postseason opener against the Rays.
Shoemaker did his part as he was never expected to pitch deep into this one. Robbie Ray followed next and wound up taking the loss. Toronto will turn to Hyun-Jin Ryu in a do-or-die Game 2 on Wednesday.
Matt Shoemaker allowed one run on three hits and two walks during Monday's victory over the Yankees. He also struck out a batter.
Shoemaker looked strong Monday, only allowing three hits in as many innings. Activated from the injured list the same day, Shoemaker threw 54 pitches, hovering toward Toronto's intended limit of 60.
Matt Shoemaker (lat) is scheduled to start a throwing progression Sunday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
There's still no clear timetable for a possible return to the Blue Jays' rotation for Shoemaker, but it's at least a small step in the right direction. His timeline should become more clear once he dives into his throwing program and gets a sense of how he's feeling.
Matt Shoemaker, currently on the IL, is week-to-week with a strained right lat.
Shoemaker has not been able to stay healthy. He has pitched only 160 innings from 2016-2020. If he were healthy, 12-team standard redraft league owners, could stream him in good match-ups.
