Tyler Skaggs yielded three runs in 4 2/3 innings and struck out seven Friday against the Mariners.

Skaggs showed some real flashes of potential this year, but all he has to show for it in the end is a 2-6 record and a 4.55 ERA in 16 starts. Health will remain a big question going into next year, so while he'll be something of a deep sleeper for mixed leagues, we wouldn't bet big on him.

Tyler Skaggs struggled in a no-decision against the Astros on Sunday, allowing four runs on six hits over his five innings of work.

Skaggs punched out three while issuing a pair of free passes. All of the damage against him came during a four-run uprising in the third inning, where Alex Bregman connected on a two-run homer and Evan Gattis added a two-run double. He'll carry a 4.48 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into his final start of the regular season on Friday against the Mariners.

Tyler Skaggs allowed two earned runs, eight hits and a walk over 5 1/3 innings in a loss against the Indians on Tuesday.

The next scheduled start for Skaggs will come on Sunday night in Houston opposite Collin McHugh. He is 0-3 with a 3.93 ERA across 36 2/3 innings over seven starts on the road this season, so you'll want to avoid him for fantasy purposes even in deeper AL-only leagues for the unfavorable matchup.

Tyler Skaggs allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings Wednesday in the Angels' 9-1 drubbing of the Astros.

That's a big step forward for Skaggs, who had allowed 19 runs -- 16 earned -- over 18 1/3 innings in his previous four starts. The win was his first in eight starts since he came off the disabled list at the beginning of August.

Tyler Skaggs struck out nine while allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

The nine strikeouts tied the most that Skaggs has recorded in an outing this season. In terms of run-scoring action on his line, he coughed up a solo home run to Khris Davis in the fourth inning. Two more would come home in the fifth, the second of which was unearned due to a Justin Upton fielding error. For the campaign as a whole, Skaggs is the owner of a 4.l7 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 12 starts. A severe oblique injury cost him about three months of work, hence the depressed number of outings. Up next on the docket, a home start against the Astros.

Tyler Skaggs was chased after surrendering six runs — five earned — over two-plus innings Friday against the Rangers.

Skaggs was pulled after giving up a leadoff homer to Joey Gallo to begin the third inning. The southpaw gave up five hits and walked three batters in the brief outing. He struck out just one of the 15 batters he faced. Skaggs has some intriguing ability, but he’s just too inconsistent to roll out there in mixed fantasy leagues.

Tyler Skaggs surrendered five runs -- four earned -- in five innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Astros.

That's pretty much the same line he had last time out against the Rangers. With a 4.25 ERA in 55 innings over 10 starts, Skaggs hasn't been too bad. Still, he's won just one game and that came over a month ago now. He'll be more interesting for fantasy purposes next year.

Tyler Skaggs was handed the loss after giving up five runs (four earned) in 5 1/3 innings Monday against the Rangers.

Most of his issues were in the third inning, as Skaggs gave up an RBI double to Shin-Soo Choo and a three-run homer to Adrian Beltre. The southpaw fanned four and walked one in the loss. Skaggs has had two good starts and two shaky ones since coming off the disabled list earlier this month. He’ll try again for his first victory since April 22 when he squares off against the Astros in a tough matchup this weekend.

Angels placed LHP Tyler Skaggs on the bereavement list.

Skaggs' grandfather passed away. He is scheduled to start Monday against the Rangers and will rejoin the team then. Andrew Heaney is back from the disabled list to take Skaggs' spot on the roster.

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.
Tue, Aug 15, 2017 10:04:00 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.

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.
