Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

After that, the club will make a determination on when he'll be able to return to the rotation. The expectation remains that he'll pitch on Monday against the Royals. Felix Pena should draw another start for the Angels on Sunday.
Jun 22 - 7:46 PM

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) is aiming to start Monday against the Royals or Tuesday against the Red Sox.

That makeup-game matchup in Kansas City would obviously be more favorable for fantasy purposes. Skaggs was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday night against the Blue Jays after experiencing some tightness in his right hamstring, but it looks like he will avoid the disabled list. The 26-year-old left-hander holds an impressive 2.81 ERA and 86/24 K/BB ratio in 80 innings (14 starts) this season with the Angels.

Tyler Skaggs has been scratched from Thursday's start against the Blue Jays due to right hamstring tightness.

Left-hander John Lamb will start in his place. The Angels are labeling Skaggs "day-to-day" and plan to reevaluate him on Friday. The left-hander has pitched well this year, compiling a 2.81 ERA with a 9.68 K/9 over 14 starts for the Halos.
Jun 21 - 6:38 PM

Tyler Skaggs allowed two unearned runs in an 8-4 victory over the Athletics on Friday.

Skaggs did allow two unearned runs, as Nolan Fontana's error with two outs opened the gates for a moment to allow the Athletics to pick up a couple of runs in the fifth. Outside of that inning it was a breeze for the southpaw, and his ERA drops down to 2.81 on the season. We'll see Skaggs again on Thursday when he faces the Blue Jays.
Jun 16 - 1:10 AM

Tyler Skaggs notched eight strikeouts while allowing only one run in seven innings to earn a win against the Twins on Saturday.

He yielded just five hits and one walk. The only run he surrendered came in on a double-play grounder in the sixth inning. Skaggs improves to 5-4 with a swell 3.08 ERA and 1.23 WHIP after 13 starts. He has 78 strikeouts and 23 walks in 73 innings pitched. The left-hander was a highly-touted prospect and has battled injuries for years. He is finally healthy and the talent is shining through.
Jun 9 - 9:33 PM

Tyler Skaggs allowed four hits and three walks over six scoreless innings with six strikeouts in Sunday's victory against the Rangers.

Skaggs threw 71 of his 107 pitches for strikes, throwing first-pitch strikes to 17 of the 24 batters he faced. He was able to even his record at 4-4, picking up his first victory in seven outings dating back to April 23. It was actually his first win in front of the home fans this season, as he has been more effective on the road. Skaggs is 3-1 with a 2.94 ERA in six road outings, while going 1-3 with a 3.62 ERA in six home starts. His next start will come next weekend at Target Field against the Twins.
Jun 3 - 9:39 PM

Tyler Skaggs yielded five runs over five innings in a loss to the Tigers on Monday.

The big blow was a grand slam from James McCann in the fifth inning. Per Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register, this is the first time this month that an Angels starter allowed more than four earned runs. Skaggs has been a nice surprise on the whole this season, posting a 3.60 ERA over 11 starts. He’ll try to get back on track against the Rangers.
May 28 - 4:39 PM

Tyler Skaggs allowed three runs on six hits in five innings and escaped without a decision as his team beat the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He served up solo homers to Devon Travis and Yangervis Solarte. On the bright side, he struck out six batters without issuing a free pass. He left with a three-run deficit but was spared a loss when the Angels scored four times to win in the ninth inning. It was a rare poor outing for the oft-injured hurler. He's been very good this year with a 3.11 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 10 starts.
May 23 - 11:50 PM

Tyler Skaggs yielded one run on six hits over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Rays.

Skaggs coughed up a solo home run to former teammate C.J. Cron in the sixth inning, but he otherwise kept the Rays in check on the scoreboard. The oft-injured southpaw struck out seven and walked three on the evening. He's pitched well -- and without physical setback -- this season, turning in a 2.88 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 53/16 K/BB ratio across nine starts covering 50 innings. The Red Sox burned him for six runs in a mid-April outing, but otherwise, Skaggs has not surrendered more than two runs in a start this season. He's always going to be a somewhat live-wire fantasy own simply due to his history of injury, but this season has been his best one in the majors to date.
May 18 - 1:19 AM

Tyler Skaggs pitched six innings of two-run ball against the Twins on Friday.

Skaggs gave up a pair of homers tonight, but both were solo shots and there was no further damage from the other four hits and two walks surrendered. Skaggs has been remarkably solid, allowing more than two earned runs just once in eight starts. Now we'll just have to wait and see if he can stay healthy.
May 12 - 2:28 AM

Tyler Skaggs allowed two earned runs, six hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision Saturday in Seattle.

Skaggs threw 52 of his 93 pitches for strikes as he turned in another solid outing. He is 1-1 with a 2.04 ERA over his past three starts while striking out 18 batters over 17 2/3 innings. He'll try to keep up the good work in his next scheduled outing next weekend against the Twins, although the exact day is still to be determined.
May 6 - 3:06 AM

Tyler Skaggs pitched well in a losing effort against the Yankees on Sunday night, allowing two runs on three hits over his 5 1/3 innings of work.

The left-hander racked up eight strikeouts on the night while issuing two free passes. All of the damage against him came on one mighty swing of the bat by Gary Sanchez in the fourth inning. Skaggs has been outstanding this season, registering a 3.03 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 32/10 K/BB ratio across 32 2/3 innings in his first six starts. He'll try to get back in the win column on the Mariners in Seattle on Saturday.
Apr 29 - 11:13 PM

Tyler Skaggs shut out the Astros for seven innings on Monday in the Angels' 2-0 win.

Skaggs struck out just three tonight, but he went without allowing a homer for the fourth time in five starts and moved to 3-1 with a 2.96 ERA. The homers should begin to come, so he's still not a great bet in mixed leagues.
Apr 23 - 11:26 PM

Tyler Skaggs got tagged for six runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Skaggs gave up eight hits to the AL's hottest offense. The big blow was a Rafael Devers grand slam that just got over the shortened right-field wall at Angels Stadium. That would have been a double last year, though Skaggs might have gone on to give up six runs in the frame anyway. He has another tough assignment next time out against the Astros.
