Tyler Skaggs SP LAA 3 Days

Tyler Skaggs took a no-decision after allowing five runs in 6 2/3 innings thanks to the Angels offense coming from behind late en route to a win on Sunday.

Skaggs hasn't been too impressive on the mound over his last three starts now. Against the Mariners, he gave up eight hits, walked one, and struck out five. The lefty now has a 4.65 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 74/27 K/BB ratio. Skaggs will try to turn things around when he takes on the Tigers at home on Friday.

Tyler Skaggs gave up six runs on seven hits over five innings but went home with the win against the Rangers on Sunday.

It wasn't impressive, but the left-hander will take it -- Sunday's win was his first since May 20. After getting off to a fast start, Skaggs enters the break with a 5-5 record, 4.50 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. He's shown flashes of being a nice fantasy contributor, but until he does it regularly he won't be much more than an AL-only option this season.

Tyler Skaggs held the Blue Jays to three runs in 6 2/3 innings Tuesday in a loss.

Skaggs gave up 11 hits, but only one was truly damaging -- Jose Reyes' two-run homer in the seventh inning with two outs, which ended his night. If he got the out, Los Angeles would have had three innings to overcome a 1-0 deficit. Instead, the game was over. Because of scheduling quirks and missing almost a month with a balky right hamstring, this was his first home start since May 20. The 22-year-old takes a 4-5 record and 4.15 ERA into a weekend date with the Rangers.

Tyler Skaggs limited the White Sox to two runs in 7 2/3 innings Wednesday in his return from the disabled list.

This qualifies as one of Skaggs' best efforts of the year. With a 64/25 K/BB ratio and just six homers allowed in 84 1/3 innings, he's pitched better than his 4.16 ERA indicates. He could be something of a mixed-league sleeper in the second half.

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) will rejoin the Angels' rotation on Wednesday.

Skaggs struggled in his last rehab outing, but the important thing is that his right hamstring is no longer an issue. The left-hander posted a 4.34 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 58/24 K/BB ratio over 76 2/3 innings before landing on the disabled list. Hector Santiago is expected to move to the bullpen to accommodate Skaggs.

Despite struggling in his minor league rehab start on Thursday, Tyler Skaggs is still expected to rejoin the Angels starting rotation next week.

That would likely mean that Hector Santiago, who has done an admirable job since rejoining the rotation, would be shifted back to the bullpen. Before hitting the shelf, Skaggs posted a 4.34 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 58/24 K/BB ratio over 76 2/3 innings.
