|Tyler Skaggs gets roughed up in win over Rangers |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7:46 pm ET) Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs was roughed up despite picking up the win Sunday afternoon against the Rangers in Arlington. The left-hander was shelled for six runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three over five innings of a 10-7 victory.
Skaggs enters the All-Star break with a 5-5 record, along with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP over 15 starts (96 innings). The Angels have yet to make a decision on their post-break rotation, so Skaggs' next start is yet to be determined.

(7/9/14) The Angels have pushed Hector Santiago to start Thursday's game against the Rangers according to MLB.com, after Matt Shoemaker was pressed into emergency relief duty Monday.
Santiago was expected to start Friday, but has been available in the bullpen Tuesday if needed. He will be followed by Garrett Richards, Jered Weaver and Tyler Skaggs to close out the Rangers series, while Shoemaker is not expected to start before the break.
|Tyler Skaggs takes loss in quality start vs. Blue Jays |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/9/14) Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs was stuck with a loss Tuesday after giving up three earned runs on 11 hits in 6 2/3 innings and striking out two in his team's 4-0 defeat against the Blue Jays.
Skaggs (4-5) gave up an RBI single to Jose Reyes in the fifth inning and lost another battle to the Toronto shortstop in the seventh, giving up a two-run home run to put his team down three runs. Skaggs has posted back-to-back quality starts, but he's 0-4 over his last five outings. He owns a 4.15 ERA and 66:25 K:BB ratio in 91 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rangers Sunday.
|Offense provides little help in Tyler Skaggs' return from DL |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/3/14) Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs tossed one of his best outings of the season in his return from the disabled list Wednesday, in a 3-2 loss to the White Sox.
Skaggs allowed two runs on a fourth-inning single by Alexei Ramirez, but that was all the White Sox could manage off him. He allowed two runs on five hits and a walk in 7 2/3 innings, while striking out six batters on 87 pitches in the no-decision.
Skaggs lowered his ERA to 4.16 in the outing, while his record remains 4-4. He has not won since mid-May, but will try to get back on the right side when he takes on the Blue Jays in his next scheduled start Tuesday.
|Tyler Skaggs ready to roll Wednesday |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/2/14) As expected, Angels right-hander Tyler Skaggs is listed as the starter for the Wednesday game against the visiting White Sox. He had been on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.
Skaggs will be on a three-game losing streak when he toes the rubber. He gave up eight runs in his last 11 innings pitched before going down.
|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.
