Tyler Skaggs (oblique) has been cleared to resume a throwing program on Monday.
Skaggs was given a 10-12 week timetable to return from a Grade 2 right oblique strain, which would put his return around the All-Star break. He thinks he can beat that projection, though, and it seems like he might be ready since he's going to resume throwing in a few days. May 19 - 5:51 PM

Tyler Skaggs (oblique) has been cleared to begin running.

Skaggs is hopeful that he will be able to beat the expected 10-12 week recovery timetable initially laid out when he went down with a Grade 2 right oblique strain on April 28. He could potentially return to action around the All-Star break, or perhaps a little earlier if his optimism is well-founded.
May 17 - 6:36 PM

Tyler Skaggs is expected to be sidelined for 10-12 weeks after being diagnosed with a Grade 2 right oblique strain.

Yikes. Skaggs has been given a platelet-rich plasma injection in hopes that it will help speed along the healing process, but it looks like he's going to be on the shelf until the second half. It's as big blow to an Angels' rotation that was already lacking from a depth perspective. Daniel Wright will take Skaggs' rotation spot.
May 1 - 6:14 PM

Angels placed LHP Tyler Skaggs on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique injury.

He suffered the injury in the fifth inning of Friday's game against the Rangers. No word yet from the team regarding the severity of the injury or how long Skaggs will be out, although oblique injuries often lead to extended absences.
Apr 29 - 6:15 PM

Tyler Skaggs was lifted from Friday's start after just five innings due to tightness in his right side.

Skaggs had been cruising until that point, allowing just one run on four hits in his five innings while striking out six. It's unclear how serious the issue is or whether it may necessitate him missing his next start. Look for an update on his status after the conclusion of Friday's game.
Apr 28 - 11:30 PM

Tyler Skaggs allowed just two earned runs while scattering seven hits and two walks over seven innings to earn his first win Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Skaggs struck out four batters in the 100-pitch quality start, throwing 63 of his pitches for strikes. He has back-to-back quality starts while striking out 13 batters over his past 14 frames. If he is able to cobble together a win streak with another quality start or two he might be worth a look in deeper mixed fantasy play. He is slated to face the Athletics at the Big A on Thursday in another favorable matchup.
Apr 23 - 2:47 AM

Tyler Skaggs worked seven scoreless innings with nine strikeouts Sunday in a no-decision versus the Royals.

Skaggs deserved a victory in this one, but the Anaheim offense was held scoreless by Ian Kennedy and Kelvin Herrera. Skaggs yielded just four hits, all singles, while issuing two walks. He'll bring an 0-1 record, 5.19 ERA, and 1.38 WHIP into his next scheduled start at home versus the Blue Jays.
Apr 16 - 5:46 PM

Tyler Skaggs gave up five runs in five-plus innings Tuesday against the Rangers.

Skaggs surrendered homers to Elvis Andrus and Jonathan Lucroy among the eight hits he allowed. His stuff just isn't quite there yet after his abbreviated spring, and there's no way to tell when that might change. Between the Tommy John and the shoulder problems he had in his rehab, health remains a question mark.
Apr 12 - 2:17 AM

Tyler Skaggs was tagged for five runs in 5 1/3 innings by the A's in a loss Thursday.

Skaggs still offers considerable promise, but one wonders if his arm will ever be sound enough to allow him to fulfill his potential. He's had a couple of shoulder issues since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2014, and he hasn't boasted quite the same stuff he did before getting hurt. He's just an AL-only guy right now.
Apr 6 - 6:34 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Thursday that he'll wait "a day or two" before officially penciling in Tyler Skaggs to start April 6 in Oakland.

Skaggs has dealt with some shoulder fatigue this spring and the Angels want to wait and see how he recovers after throwing 90 pitches in a minor league game Thursday. "We’re going to follow Tyler very closely in the next couple days, but the workout he had today is definitely indicative of a guy that should be able to fall into our rotation, but we’re not going to make that determination for another day or two," Scioscia said. Assuming he recovers well, Skaggs will join Garrett Richards, Matt Shoemaker, Ricky Nolasco and Jesse Chavez in the Angels' rotation.
Mar 31 - 12:29 PM

Tyler Skaggs allowed one run on four hits over four innings in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Diamondbacks.

Skaggs struck out three and did not walk a batter on the afternoon. The lone run to score on his watch came home in the third inning. Skaggs has dealt with a shoulder injury this spring, but it would appear that he is beginning to round into form with an eye on a possible spot in the Opening Day rotation.
Mar 25 - 7:18 PM

Tyler Skaggs struck out five over four scoreless innings in a minor league game Monday.

Skaggs yielded one hit and one walk on the night, sitting 91-92 mph with his fastball and touching 94 mph. The left-hander was slowed early on in camp by a shoulder injury, but he said he felt "great" Monday and still has a chance to be ready to take one of the Angels' first five starts of the regular season.
Mar 20 - 10:38 PM

Tyler Skaggs is scheduled to pitch a minor league game on Monday.

Skaggs is trying to get his pitch count up after missing time with a shoulder injury earlier this month. He passed a team-administered strength test after Wednesday's game against the Giants and is slated to throw about 50 pitches on Monday. He's hoping to be at full strength by Opening Day.
Mar 16 - 10:00 PM

Tyler Skaggs cruised through two hitless frames Wednesday in the Angels’ Cactus League loss to the Giants.

He finished with two strikeouts and the same number of walks. Skaggs was skipped last time through the rotation due to shoulder soreness, but didn’t show any lingering effects Wednesday in Scottsdale. The left-hander shut down the Giants’ A team while hitting 92 mph on the radar gun. Skaggs is hoping to finally get a full season under his belt after being limited to 10 games last year in his return from Tommy John surgery.
Mar 15 - 8:17 PM

Tyler Skaggs (shoulder) will start on Tuesday.

Skaggs had his last start scratched due to shoulder weakness, but he's already feeling a lot better. He's slated to throw two innings in his return to action on Tuesday. Barring any setbacks, he should be fine for the start of the season.
