News: Shoemaker threw six hitless innings in a Cactus league game against the Mariners on Monday. He stuck out two and walked a batter in the contest.
Impact: After being hammered for seven runs over six innings in his first two starts of the spring, Shoemaker answered with a gem Monday. Spring results generally don't mean much one way or the other, but it could be encouraging to owners to see Shoemaker rounding in to form as he looks for a repeat of his breakout season in 2014, when he tallied a 3.04 ERA with 124 strikeouts over 136 innings.
