Minnesota Twins release Matt Shoemaker


The Minnesota Twins released right-handed pitcher Matt Shoemaker on Tuesday, weeks after designating the veteran for assignment.

Shoemaker accepted an assignment with Triple-A Saint Paul after clearing waivers on July 5. He had given up just four runs in 20 innings since.

Shoemaker, 34, went 3-8 with an 8.06 ERA in 16 games (11 starts) for Minnesota this season.

Since being moved to the bullpen in early June, Shoemaker allowed 13 runs in 9 2/3 innings for a 12.10 ERA.

For his nine-year career, Shoemaker is 46-41 with a 4.24 ERA in 128 games (115 starts) with the Los Angeles Angels (2013-18), Toronto Blue Jays (2019-20) and Twins.
