|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/9/14) Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs took a step in the right direction on Sunday, enjoying a solid outing against the Reds in Cactus League action.
Skaggs allowed just one hit and two walks while striking out three over four scoreless innings pitched. He has allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings pitched this spring.
|Tyler Skaggs surrenders two runs in spring debut |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/4/14) Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs gave up two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out two in 2 1/3 innings in his spring debut Tuesday as the Angels defeated the Rangers, 7-4.
"I was just happy to get back on the mound," Skaggs told MLB.com after the start. "The season ended kind of sour for me last year. It felt really good to go out there and let it fly."
Skaggs made 13 starts with Arizona over the past two seasons before being dealt to the Angels this offseason. He's competing to open the season as the team's No. 5 starter.
|Tyler Skaggs goes back to old pitching mechanics |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/23/14) Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs, who was acquired in an offseason trade from Arizona, said he's gone back to his old pitching mechanics after making some changes last year, per MLB.com. Skaggs said he's going back to slowing down the tempo during his windup and lengthening the stride in his delivery.
"It's also a little less herky-jerky," Skaggs said. "And the longer stride allows me to get a little bit more velocity and that helps everything else out. I'm a lot more comfortable."
Skaggs was pleased with how he threw after throwing live batting practice for the first time this spring Saturday.
"Everything felt really good," Skaggs said. "The curveball was there and the fastball was really jumping out of my hand (Saturday)."
|Angels consider adding SP, but content with rotation alignment |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/14/14) Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Los Angeles remains interested in free agent pitcher Matt Garza, according to the Los Angeles Times.
However, Dipoto added he would also be satisfied going into spring training with a rotation of Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, Garrett Richards, Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs, with Mark Mulder, Joe Blanton and Wade LeBlanc also in the mix competing for a spot in the rotation.
"We do like our pitching staff and the depth we’ve been able to come up with," Dipoto said. "We know there is some uncertainty with a handful of young pitchers as they learn the league, but we believe in their ability.
"The year Hector had last year was pretty good. The second-half surge we saw from Richards was very encouraging. Skaggs is a 22-year-old who has done what he can in the minor leagues, and we believe he’s ready for opportunity."
|Report: White Sox, D-Backs and Angels complete three-team deal |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(12/10/13) A three-team deal involving the White Sox, Diamondbacks and Angels has been completed, according to the azcentral.com.
The Angels will receive pitcher Hector Santiago from Chicago and pitcher Tyler Skaggs from Arizona. The White Sox will receive outfielder Adam Eaton, and the Diamondbacks will get outfielder Mark Trumbo. Arizona will also receive two PTBNL, one from Chicago and one from Los Angeles.
|Apparently the Angels believe in mulligans. After trading starting pitcher prospect Tyler Skaggs to the Diamondbacks in 2010, the Angels reacquired the left-handed hurler in a December 2013 trade. Now, Skaggs enters 2014 competing for the final spot in the Angels' rotation. Though, the last time Skaggs was in that position it didn't go so well. Skaggs, who entered last season as a top 15 prospect according to MLB.com and Baseball America, lost out on the competition for the final spot in the Arizona rotation last spring, which started a downward spiral for the highly touted prospect. Skaggs battled command issues and dealt with a drop in fastball velocity following his demotion to the minors. Skaggs would make seven starts in the majors last season, but the results weren't any better, going 2-3 with a 5.12 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto acknowledged a "slight drop-off in velocity," but also noticed a mechanical flaw in Skaggs' delivery, which he feels is very fixable and could restore the diminished velocity. Even amid his struggles last season, Skaggs still had a good strikeout rate, so if he fixes his issues with the Angels, then maybe he will tap into his full potential. Skaggs is certainly an intriguing late-round Fantasy sleeper.
