Tyler Skaggs (elbow) could pitch in the Arizona Fall League this year as he returns from Tommy John surgery.

It depends on how far along in his rehab Skaggs is as he recovers from the left elbow surgery last August. Either way, the 23-year-old won't be seen in the majors this season. Assuming all goes well, though, Skaggs should be ready for the start of the 2016 season.

Tyler Skaggs (elbow) has been told he will not pitch until the 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery Wednesday.

Skaggs has a partial ulnar collateral ligament tear and has been ruled out through the end of next season even if his rehab goes well. It's a sensible move on the Angels' part, as Skaggs doesn't figure to be at full strength at any point next year, anyway. He's not arbitration-eligible until 2017.

Tyler Skaggs will undergo Tommy John surgery.

The Angels said earlier this month that Skaggs wouldn't need surgery to repair a left flexor tendon strain, but it's an injury that often leads to Tommy John surgery and that will be the case here. It's obviously terrible news for the Angels and Skaggs, as the young lefty now won't be counted on until the 2016 season.
Sun, Aug 10, 2014 01:41:00 PM

Angels transferred LHP Tyler Skaggs from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move effectively ends his season, as he wouldn't be eligible to return until October. It's surprising, as the Halos had been hopeful of the young left-hander rejoining the rotation at some point in September. Skaggs does not need surgery to repair a left flexor tendon strain, but the Angels have obviously opted to be extra cautious here.

Tyler Skaggs (forearm) has yet to be cleared to resume throwing.

Skaggs does not need surgery to repair a left flexor tendon strain, but the Angels will give him plenty of time to rest. They're hoping the young left-hander will be ready to rejoin the rotation at some point in September.

Tyler Skaggs does not need surgery to repair a left flexor tendon strain.

Skaggs left Thursday's start with the injury. There's no timetable for his return, but the left-hander fully expects to rejoin the Angels' rotation at some point this season. Hector Santiago is expected to slide back into the rotation in his place for now.
Fri, Aug 1, 2014 05:11:00 PM

Angels placed LHP Tyler Skaggs on the 15-day disabled list with a left forearm strain.

Skaggs exited Thursday's start with the injury. MRI results are not yet available, but the Angels are hopeful that it's not a serious injury. Understandably, they wanted to play things safely with the young left-hander. Hector Santiago seems likely to re-enter the rotation in Skaggs' place.

Tyler Skaggs (forearm) is expected to be placed on the disabled list.

Skaggs' elbow ligament is fine and the Angels are confident his forearm tightness is a minor issues, but they don't want to take any chances. He'll undergo an MRI Friday before the Halos officially make a decision. "The doctor said the UCL [ulnar collateral ligament] is fine," Skaggs said. "At the moment, it’s not looking bad. I have full range of motion, and the tests went well. We’ll see tomorrow, though. It’s not feeling too bad right now."
