Skaggs allowed three runs on six hits -- including two home runs -- over 4.2 innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Friday. He struck out seven and issued one walk.

EDGE Analysis

The lefty was hurt by the long ball in this one, but he can hold his head high heading into the offseason, having posted a 3.86 ERA and 25:6 K:BB over his final five starts (28 innings). Injuries have plagued Skaggs throughout his career -- he lost a significant portion of this season to an oblique strain -- and the most important thing for 2018 will be just staying healthy.

Skaggs didn't factor into the decision Sunday in Houston, allowing four earned runs on six hits while walking two and striking out three over five innings. The Angels won 7-5.

EDGE Analysis

Thanks to another no-decision, Skaggs' record for the season sits at a dismal 2-6 through 15 starts. The 26-year-old's WHIP (1.38) and ERA (4.48) are right in line with his career marks of 1.34 and 4.53, though, so owners shouldn't be shocked by his performance this year. He'll toe the rubber one last time in 2017 on Friday against the visiting Mariners.

Skaggs (2-6) gave up two runs on eight hits over 5.1 innings Tuesday. He walked one and struck out one while taking the loss to the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

All things considered, this was a positive outing for the 26-year-old against the hottest team in baseball. Skaggs has posted a 2.45 ERA and 5.0 K/BB ratio over his last three starts since rediscovering his two-seam fastball. His next start against the Astros on Sunday represents another tough matchup, but the southpaw dominated them in their previous meeting on Sept. 13.

Skaggs (2-5) picked up the win after firing seven shutout innings Wednesday. He allowed three hits while walking one and striking out five in a 9-1 win over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Fantasy owners may have been hesitant to start the inconsistent southpaw against an Astros' lineup that was loaded with right-handed power, but Skaggs overcame the odds and came out victorious. He has now posted two consecutive quality starts with an impressive 14:2 K:BB ratio over 13 innings. Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reported that Skaggs' recent success has coincided with the reincorporation of his two-seam fastball, a pitch that he ditched last season. The proof was in the pudding for the 26-year-old, as he induced a season-high seven groundballs in Wednesday's dominant outing. Skaggs will look to keep things rolling in another tough matchup against the red-hot Indians next Tuesday.

Skaggs (1-5) landed in the loss column after allowing three runs on six hits and a walk Wednesday against the Athletics. He struck out nine.

EDGE Analysis

Skaggs tied his season high for strikeouts, but it still wasn't enough for the southpaw to earn his first win since April. Wednesday marked just his second quality start in seven outings since he returned from an oblique injury at the beginning of August; he owns a 5.61 ERA and 31:14 K:BB in 33.2 innings over that stretch. Skaggs' next start comes at home against the Astros.

Skaggs was tossed around by the Rangers on Friday, allowing six runs (five earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out one in just two innings of work.

EDGE Analysis

The southpaw wasn't sharp by any means in this one, as he needed 70 pitches to even complete his pair of frames. Thankfully for him, the offense rallied to take him off the hook for the loss, but his awful showing still brought his ERA and WHIP up to 4.89 and 1.46, respectively. This marks the third start in a row that he's served up at least four runs, and to add insult to injury, he has a rough 8:6 K:BB in that span. The myriad of injuries affecting the Halos' pitching staff will likely keep him in the rotation even while the team is contending for a playoff spot, but his fantasy relevance certainly has taken a hit with this rough patch. Skaggs is lined up to take on the Athletics on Wednesday for his next start.

Skaggs was charged with five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks over five innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Saturday. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

It wasn't a particularly strong performance -- he also committed a balk in this one -- but the offense rallied late against the Houston bullpen to win the game. Skaggs has now given up eight earned runs over 10.1 innings in his last two starts, and he's gone more than 5.1 innings just once in five starts since his return from an oblique injury. He lines up to face the Rangers in Texas his next time out.

Skaggs (1-4) allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts over 5.1 innings and took the loss Monday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Skaggs has finished the sixth inning just once in his last four starts, a stretch in which he is now 0-3 with a 3.92 ERA and an 18:8 K:BB over 15.1 innings. He has some promise, but until Skaggs can rein in his control, he won't be able to bring it to the next level.

Skaggs was placed on the bereavement list Friday following the death of his grandfather.

EDGE Analysis

The move will mean Skaggs will be away from the team for anywhere from three to seven games, possibly forcing the team to skip his next start as he is away with his family. Andrew Heaney was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.
