Tyler Skaggs held the Blue Jays to three runs in 6 2/3 innings Tuesday in a loss.
Skaggs gave up 11 hits, but only one was truly damaging -- Jose Reyes' two-run homer in the seventh inning with two outs, which ended his night. If he got the out, Los Angeles would have had three innings to overcome a 1-0 deficit. Instead, the game was over. Because of scheduling quirks and missing almost a month with a balky right hamstring, this was his first home start since May 20. The 22-year-old takes a 4-5 record and 4.15 ERA into a weekend date with the Rangers. Jul 9 - 1:25 AM

Tyler Skaggs limited the White Sox to two runs in 7 2/3 innings Wednesday in his return from the disabled list.

This qualifies as one of Skaggs' best efforts of the year. With a 64/25 K/BB ratio and just six homers allowed in 84 1/3 innings, he's pitched better than his 4.16 ERA indicates. He could be something of a mixed-league sleeper in the second half.
Jul 2 - 11:26 PM

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) will rejoin the Angels' rotation on Wednesday.

Skaggs struggled in his last rehab outing, but the important thing is that his right hamstring is no longer an issue. The left-hander posted a 4.34 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 58/24 K/BB ratio over 76 2/3 innings before landing on the disabled list. Hector Santiago is expected to move to the bullpen to accommodate Skaggs.

Despite struggling in his minor league rehab start on Thursday, Tyler Skaggs is still expected to rejoin the Angels starting rotation next week.

That would likely mean that Hector Santiago, who has done an admirable job since rejoining the rotation, would be shifted back to the bullpen. Before hitting the shelf, Skaggs posted a 4.34 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 58/24 K/BB ratio over 76 2/3 innings.
Jun 27 - 7:34 PM

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.

In other words, he will not rejoin the Angels' rotation on Saturday as previously expected. Instead, Hector Santiago will get another start. Skaggs should be activated sometime next week assuming Thursday's outing goes well.

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) is expected to rejoin the Angels' rotation on Saturday against the Royals.

Skaggs had a minor setback last week with his strained right hamstring, but he's feeling good now and ready to face major league hitters again. The left-hander put up a 4.34 ERA with 58 strikeouts across 76 2/3 innings prior to getting injured in early June.
Jun 24 - 6:20 PM

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) threw a successful bullpen session on Wednesday afternoon.

Skaggs was unable to throw a scheduled simulated game on Tuesday due to lingering discomfort in his right hamstring, but he felt fine pitching off a mound on Wednesday and now plans to try that simulated game again on Saturday. He could skip a rehab assignment and return to the Angels' starting rotation next week. Skaggs was 4-4 with a 4.34 ERA and 58 strikeouts in 76 2/3 innings prior to getting injured in early June.
Jun 18 - 5:30 PM

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) will not return this weekend.

Jun 17 - 5:12 PM

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) is on track to rejoin the Angels' rotation on Saturday against the Rangers.

Skaggs threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Sunday and should be officially cleared if he gets through a simulated game on Tuesday with no issues. Saturday is the first day the left-hander is eligible to return from the disabled list. He's put up a 4.34 ERA over 12 starts this season.
Jun 16 - 8:49 PM

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) threw 30 pitches in a successful bullpen session on Sunday.

Skaggs indicated that everything went well and that he expects to be activated from the disabled list as soon as he's eligible next weekend. It's likely that Hector Santiago will once again be the odd-man out in the rotation mix upon his return.
Jun 15 - 6:30 PM

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) ran on the field and did some cuts Friday.

Skaggs has been out for a week now with a strained right hamstring, but he's feeling much better. The left-hander is hoping to be ready to return next week when his 15 days are up.
Jun 13 - 5:27 PM

Angels placed LHP Tyler Skaggs on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 6, with a right hamstring injury.

It's not clear when Skaggs suffered the injury, but obviously he'll no longer start on Tuesday against the A's. The Angels are calling the move precautionary and are expecting Skaggs back when his 15 days are up. Hector Santiago will take the ball instead. He holds a 4.34 ERA over 12 starts with the Angels this season.
Jun 9 - 7:45 PM

Tyler Skaggs fell to 4-4, allowing four runs over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

Skaggs has been unreliable over the last month, allowing four runs or more in four out of his last five starts. On Thursday, the lefty allowed six hits, walked three, and struck out four. Skaggs will take a 4.34 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 58/24 K/BB ratio in 76 2/3 innings into his next start at home against the Athletics.
Jun 5 - 11:04 PM

Tyler Skaggs got the win with a quality effort in Tuesday's start against the Astros, allowing only one run on five hits over seven innings.

The left-hander struck out six and walked one. It was good to see Skaggs bounce back after he served up five runs or more in two of his last three starts. The step forward improves the 22-year-old southpaw to 4-1 with a 4.14 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. Skaggs has a road date against Seattle on Monday.
May 21 - 1:45 AM

Tyler Skaggs yielded five runs on eight hits over six innings Thursday in a no-decision to the Rays.

The left-hander struck out five and walked one. Skaggs isn't going to overpower you, so there'll be nights like this where the vagaries of batted balls determine his fate. Tonight lady luck turned her back, spiking his ERA to 4.53 (to go with a nice 1.16 WHIP). Skaggs has a spectacular matchup on Wednesday when he hosts the hapless Astros.
