"It’s fine. This game is full of adjustments," Shoemaker said. "Part of that is being ready to adjustment. Obviously, I was ready and planning to pitch today. They said ‘Hey, your day is Friday.’ So OK, great. Your day is Friday."
Asked if this gives his body a chance to heal, Shoemaker said "nothing hurts."
Shoemaker, who won 16 games for the Angels last year, is 4-5 with a 5.20 ERA. In his last start at Oakland, he allowed five earned runs in four innings but didn’t figure into the decision.
"Matt Shoemaker has been working on a couple of things with (pitching coach Mike Butcher)," Scioscia said. "We wanted to give him time to hopefully work and find a couple of things, so we’re going to push him back to Friday. That opened a spot for Andrew."
