Tyler Skaggs held the Nationals to two runs over five innings but took a loss Tuesday.

Skaggs walked a couple and gave up seven hits on the night, including a pair of solo home runs to Howie Kendrick. He needed 91 pitches to cover his five frames. All told, though, it’s not a bad showing in what was a difficult matchup. Skaggs struggled in his first start back from the disabled list but has been much better the last two times out. He’ll get the Rangers and Astros at home next week.
Aug 15 - 10:04 PM

Tyler Skaggs fired off 6 1/3 innings of scoreless ball while scattering five hits in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

Skaggs struck out five and walked three on the evening. He threw 84 pitches (54 strikes) over his 6 1/3 innings of work. Skaggs has made just seven starts this season due to a severe oblique injury which cost him three months of work. When healthy, he has pitched to a 3.63 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. He will look to build on Thursday's strong performance in a road start against the Nationals next time he takes to the mound.

Tyler Skaggs surrendered three earned runs over four innings Saturday in a loss to the Athletics.

Skaggs, making his first start since April 28, surrendered one run in the top of the first inning and two more in the top of the fourth while falling to 1-2 on the season with a 4.32 ERA. He gave up six hits, two walks, and struck out three. The 26-year-old left-hander will try for better results next time out against the Mariners.
Aug 6 - 12:35 AM

Angels activated LHP Tyler Skaggs from the 60-day disabled list.

Skaggs will return to the Angels' starting rotation on Saturday night against the Athletics after missing over three months with a severe oblique injury. The 26-year-old left-hander had a 3.99 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 29/9 K/BB ratio over his first 29 1/3 innings (five starts) this season with Anaheim. He holds some fantasy streaming appeal.
Aug 5 - 5:48 PM

Tyler Skaggs (oblique) is scheduled to start against the A's on Saturday.

This will be Skaggs' first appearance on a major league mound since April 29. He has been rehabbing from a rib-cage injury over the past three months. In five starts prior to suffering the oblique strain, Skaggs had been pitching to a 3.99 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 29/9 K/BB ratio.
Aug 2 - 6:59 PM

Tyler Skaggs (oblique) will either make one more rehab appearance or start for the Angels Saturday against the Athletics.

Skaggs made his fourth rehab start Monday for Triple-A Salt Lake, allowing five hits, three runs and three walks with five strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings. More importantly, he got his pitch count up to 85, which was up from 62 in his previous outing. A strained rib cage has sidelined the left-hander since late April.
Aug 1 - 11:29 PM

Tyler Skaggs (oblique) allowed six hits and three runs over four innings Saturday in a rehab start for Triple-A Salt Lake.

He finished with two strikeouts while throwing 45 of his 62 pitches for strikes. Skaggs is nearing a return after missing the last three months with a strained oblique but will need at least one more start in the minors before he's ready to join the Angels' rotation.
Jul 22 - 11:42 PM

Tyler Skaggs (oblique) is scheduled to go four innings with Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.

There is a third rehab start scheduled for next week, and then Skaggs will be reevaluated for a possible return to the Angels' active roster. He allowed two runs over 3 2/3 innings in his rehab debut Monday in the rookie-level Arizona League. The left-hander has been out since late April with a severe oblique strain.
Jul 18 - 9:39 PM

Tyler Skaggs (oblique) will resume a rehab assignment with the Angels' Arizona League team on Sunday or Monday.

Skaggs had to be scratched from a rehab start a little over two weeks ago after feeling renewed soreness in his oblique, but he's nearly game-ready again. It figures to be sometime in August that he'll be an option for the Angels' rotation even if all goes well from here on out.
Jul 14 - 1:16 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Tyler Skaggs (oblique) is scheduled to face hitters this week.

Skaggs resumed throwing about a week ago after suffering a minor setback. He's hoping to begin a rehab assignment soon with the goal of returning to the Angels' rotation in early August. A strained oblique has sidelined Skaggs since late April.
Jul 8 - 11:45 PM

Tyler Skaggs (oblique) has been cleared to resume his throwing program.

Skaggs underwent an ultrasound on his strained oblique, but apparently everything checked out okay. Beat reporter Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register expects Skaggs to begin a minor league rehab assignment sometime in the next week. Obviously Skaggs won't meet his original goal of returning right after the All-Star break but at least he's throwing again.
Jun 29 - 11:06 PM

Tyler Skaggs (oblique) will be re-evaluated Wednesday to determine whether he can continue his throwing program or needs to be shut down to do more rehabbing.

Skaggs' scheduled rehab start last Saturday was scratched due to renewed oblique soreness. He's been playing catch since then, but it's possible it will be decided Wednesday that he might need to shut it down again for a while. Either way, he's not close to being an option for the Angels' rotation.
Jun 28 - 1:06 PM

Tyler Skaggs (oblique) played catch Sunday.

Skaggs' scheduled rehab start Saturday was scratched due to renewed oblique soreness, but at least he was able to do a little throwing a day later. He's been sidelined since April and has now been ruled out until the second half.
Jun 25 - 1:52 PM

Updating an earlier report, Tyler Skaggs (oblique) was scratched from his scheduled rehab start Saturday in the Arizona League.

According to beat reporter Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register, Skaggs is dealing with "general soreness" in his oblique but will continue throwing as "tolerated." The Angels were originally hoping to have Skaggs back around the All-Star break. His latest setback may throw a wrench in that plan.
