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.
Apr 19 - 1:35 AM

Tyler Skaggs slogged through five innings but picked up a win Tuesday, yielding one run in an 11-1 victory over the Rangers.

Skaggs whiffed seven, but he gave up five hits and walked four, needing a whopping 114 pitches to cover his five innings. He no doubt would’ve been pulled sooner if the game was closer, but old school manager Mike Scioscia wanted to get his starter a win. Speaking of wins, Skaggs now has two of them and boasts a 1.69 ERA through three starts. He’ll face the Red Sox next.
Apr 10 - 11:27 PM

Tyler Skaggs needed 103 pitches to get through 4 2/3 innings while allowing two runs in his start against the Indians on Wednesday.

Skaggs obviously wasn't efficient, but he did allow just the two runs, and he was able to strike out five against the solid Cleveland lineup. It makes back-to-back solid outings for the left-hander, who has shown flashes of excellence when he's been healthy enough to start. He'll look to build on those starts in his next appearance against Texas, which will either come Tuesday or Wednesday.
Apr 4 - 8:56 PM

Tyler Skaggs scattered three singles while allowing no runs over 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a victory against the Athletics on Friday night.

Skaggs threw 60 of his 98 pitches for strikes, recording five punch outs in the quality start. It was a welcome sight for Skaggs and his fantasy owners, as he entered the game 0-2 with a 6.35 ERA in his previous two starts at Coliseum dating back to the start of the 2015 season. His next start is scheduled during the middle of next week against the visiting Indians.
Mar 31 - 1:47 AM

Tyler Skaggs surrendered four runs on four hits over three innings in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Diamondbacks.

The runs allowed were unfortunate enough, but what really stands out from Skaggs' box score on Saturday was a near-complete lack of control. The 26-year-old southpaw issued an uncomfortable five walks on the afternoon. Skaggs has now surrendered 11 runs in 11 innings this spring (working out to an even 9.00 ERA). While it's not outside the realm of possibility that he could put together a respectable season after an injury-plagued start to his career, it's extremely hard to trust him for fantasy purposes at this juncture.
Mar 24 - 7:53 PM

Tyler Skaggs gave up two runs in 3 2/3 innings against the Rockies on Thursday in his second Cactus League start.

Skaggs gave up four hits in his just-under four innings, but he didn't walk anyone, and he was able to strike out four. When Skaggs has been healthy he's shown stuff that suggests he can be a mid-rotation starter, but he hasn't been healthy for the majority of his big league career. He's worth a flyer in deeper leagues, but you should have backup plans ready to go.
Mar 8 - 4:58 PM

Tyler Skaggs surrendered three earned runs on two homers over 1 1/3 innings Monday in his Cactus League debut versus the Padres.

Skaggs had a sharp first inning, inducing a groundout from Manuel Margot before striking out both Carlos Asuaje and Wil Myers, but the Padres teed off on him in the second. Hunter Renfroe and Christian Villanueva both went deep. Skaggs had trouble keeping the ball in the yard in 2017 and again struggled to stay off the disabled list. The 26-year-old left-hander is a risky fantasy bet for 2018.
Feb 26 - 5:31 PM

Angels and LHP Tyler Skaggs avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.875 million contract.

The left-hander was arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason. Skaggs has had a terrible time with injuries but will enter next season with a clean bill of health.
Jan 12 - 10:49 AM

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.
Mon, Sep 25, 2017 12:00:00 AM

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.
Thu, Sep 14, 2017 02:32:00 AM

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.
Wed, Sep 6, 2017 06:50:00 PM

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.
