|Tyler Skaggs finally rounding into form|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(9:57 am ET) Diamondbacks starting pitcher prospect Tyler Skaggs has worked through a rough patch of starts for Triple-A Reno, and on Wednesday signaled he's finally settled down. After allowing at least six runs in three of five starts from April 13-May 5, Skaggs allowed three or fewer runs Wednesday for the third straight start.
The left-hander struck out a season-high 10 in 7 2/3 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits.
"I just felt like I had everything working -- fastball, changeup, curve -- and my catcher Ed Easley was calling a great game," Skaggs said, per MLB.com. "By far, it was easily my best start of the year. I didn't feel great in the bullpen [before the game] but got out there, started bearing down and got going."
Skaggs is 4-5 with a 5.23 ERA in nine starts. However, he's won his last two starts and has posted 2.66 ERA in his last three outings. He's managed 54 strikeouts in 51 2/3 innings this season.
"I feel like my mechanics are getting better, hitting that groove, throwing the ball well," Skaggs said. "But I wouldn't say I'm at the peak yet. I've still got things to work out, but I feel pretty good, and the numbers are starting to show that."

(5/7/13) Diamondbacks prospect Tyler Skaggs has gone 2-4 with a 6.89 ERA in his first six starts for Triple-A Reno.
General manager Kevin Towers was asked Monday why he believed the left-hander has struggled.
"Confidence," Towers told MLB.com. "He didn't have a real good spring, and if you don't have a good spring and you've got to get things back on track pitching in the [Pacific Coast League] -- specifically at Reno -- it's hard."

(5/5/13) Diamondbacks starting pitcher prospect Tyler Skaggs, who entered the season as the team's top-rated prospect by MLB.com, will take the mound Sunday for Triple-A Reno looking to put behind him a brutal April. Skaggs went 2-3 with a 6.15 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in five April starts.
Skaggs allowed eight runs (five earned) in his last start, which was the second time this season he allowed at least eight runs. Skaggs has struck out 24 batters in 26 1/3 innings, but he's also allowed 12 walks and 29 hits. Surprisingly, he hasn't allowed a home run in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League.
|Tyler Skaggs tosses six scoreless innings|

(4/8/13) In his first minor-league start of the season, Diamondbacks pitcher Tyler Skaggs went six scoreless innings.
Skaggs gave up four hits and two walks, striking out four. The 21-year-old was a candidate for the D-Backs' fifth spot in the rotation at the start of camp, but pitched poorly in four appearances this spring. The team sent him down to work on his mechanics and build up his confidence.
Skaggs is considered the team's top overall prospect, and will likely play a significant role on the major-league club this season.
|Keep Tyler Skaggs on your radar|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(3/18/13) Tyler Skaggs was sent back to the minors on Monday by the Diamondbacks, but I'm still drafting him. He was less-than-impressive in six starts last year, and had a terrible spring (11.00 ERA), but I'd expect him to be back up before long. He put together a 2.98 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 389 minor league innings, striking out well over a batter per inning.
Arizona's rotation is strong, but not impermeable. Skaggs is the team's top pitching prospect, and this demotion is actually good news for those of us who have been targeting him, as it drives Skaggs' price down in auctions and makes him almost a non-factor in a lot of drafts. Find bench space for Skaggs -- when he comes back up (let's just guess at late May/early June), he'll likely be a force in the Arizona rotation.
|Back in 2010, when Dan Haren was worth more than Carlos Marmol and some cash, the Angles sent prospect Tyler Skaggs to Arizona in exchange for the veteran. Skaggs spent two seasons honing his craft in the Diamondbacks system before getting the call, at age 21, to the big leagues in August. Things did not go well. Skaggs pitched in six games, finishing the year 1-3 with a 5.83 ERA and 1.47 WHIP. This is not the Tyler Skaggs you will see in 2013. Slated to make the rotation out of spring training, Skaggs, one of baseball's top pitching prospects -- has a ton of talent. He has a career 2.98 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in the minors, including a 2.91 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League last year. He can strike out a batter per inning and has pitched more than 300 innings in the last two seasons combined. Your fellow drafters may remember his unimpressive stint in the majors last year and pass. But Skaggs is a stellar sleeper candidate for mixed leagues and can be grabbed in the last few rounds in deeper formats. (Updated 2/7/13)|
