Lost in the roster shuffles -- New report on Shoemaker. 

From Rotoworld: 

Matt Shoemaker (forearm) is expected to resume throwing in six weeks.

Shoemaker had surgery Tuesday to repair a split tendon in his forearm. The injury wasn't appearing on MRIs and was only discovered after exploratory surgery. Shoemaker says the injury was a frustrating source of pain for him recently, and he's relieved to have a resolution. He'll begin a throwing program in six weeks and seems as though he would be eyeing a return at the start of the 2019 season, given how his year has gone to date

Can he turn into a reliever next season ? like Escobar in 2005.

Why? If he's healthy he has the potential to  be a solid SP still. I can see him pitching out of the pen this year a bit as he wont be stretched out, but no reason to move him if he's healthy next year...

Obviously this hidden injury has been a big reason for his struggles and it should help.

I admittedly don’t know exactly how the MLB arbitration system works, but if a player is hurt for the year or doesn’t perform are they still expected the raise based on some percentage?  And at that point the team can say “no, you’re a free agent” or they agree to a number or go to arbitration?  If it’s not based on a scale why would an arbitrator award an increase if they were hurt or they sucked?

Sadly yes.  Richards is making like $9 million this year.
