Angels' Tyler Skaggs wants to return to MLB in 2015
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/22/15) Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs is making progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, but he doesn't have the same definition of progress as the team.
The Angels have said that Skaggs, who had surgery last August, will not return to the mound until 2016.
Skaggs is throwing off a mound, a milestone he reached last week. His goal is to return to the Angels this season.
"I want to help my team win,” Skaggs said Monday, per the Orange County Register. “I can definitely go out and throw some innings, even if it’s out of the bullpen. Whatever is necessary...I’ve been working my (butt) off to get to that point. If push comes to shove and I feel I’m ready, then of course I’m going to say yes. I’ll leave it up to everyone else.”

|(5/6/15) Angels starter Tyler Skaggs, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, has been taking a planned week off from his rehab, and will resume throwing on Monday. He's currently slated to start having bullpen sessions by July 1, according to The Orange County Register.
Skaggs made 18 starts for the Halos last season, going 5-5 with a 4.30 ERA before going down with an elbow injury in August. He is not expected to return to a big-league mound until 2016.

|(4/20/15) As Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs tries to recover from Tommy John surgery last August, he said he's considering moving back his goal of pitching in a minor-league game from the summer to the fall, reports MLB.com.
"I'm going to talk to the [doctor] and the medical staff about it," Skaggs said. "When I come back, I want to be as strong as I possibly can."
He added that he's been able to throw from 130 feet and everything is going well.
Angels transfer LHP Tyler Skaggs to 60-day DL

|(4/16/15) The Angels transferred left-hander Tyler Skaggs from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list on Wednesday, per the team's official website. Skaggs is recovering from August 2014 Tommy John surgery. He hopes to start throwing off a mound by ate June.
Angels' Skaggs wants to mimic Harvey's plan after elbow surgery
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Angels starting pitcher Tyler Skaggs, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery in August, no longer has the goal of pitching in a minor-league game this season, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“I’m going to try the Matt Harvey program,” Skaggs said of giving himself 18 months recovery before pitching in a game. “Seeing how he pitched was very encouraging to me. It looks like nothing ever happened to him, and that’s exciting for me because I feel the same way.”
Skaggs threw for eight weeks in February and March before taking two weeks off. He is in the third week of a six-week throwing program and is throwing from 115 feet. He hopes to begin throwing off a mound by late June.
“I feel good,” he said.
|2014 summary: At times in 2014 -- such as a five-start stretch at the beginning of the Angels season in which he compiled a 3.34 ERA -- Tyler Skaggs looked like he had recaptured the form that had once made him such a promising prospect in the Diamondbacks organization. But inconsistency kept him from establishing any real value in Fantasy, and before he could, he tore a ligament in his left elbow, succumbing to Tommy John surgery in August.|
Playing time status: You know the deal with Tommy John surgery by now. As late as Skaggs had the procedure in 2014, there's a good chance he misses all of 2015. You might stash him in an AL-only league just in case he returns late, but only if you have ample DL spots.
2015 outlook: Not too long ago, Skaggs was considered an even better prospect than Archie Bradley and Taijuan Walker, so even though his career has gotten off to a bumpy start, you wouldn't want to sell him short in long-term keeper leagues. In single-season leagues, though, he's probably a waste of your time.
