Diamondbacks | Tyler Skaggs may be losing ground

In his battle to win a starting job in the rotation, Arizona Diamondbacks SP Tyler Skaggs has allowed 16 runs (11 earned) in 12 innings. He gave up five runs (two earned) on three hits and four walks in 2 2/3 innings on Saturday, March 16, against the San Diego Padres. Manager Kirk Gibson said Skaggs has "certainly pressed from the day he came in here" and that still might be thinking too much on the mound. "He's young and has a lot to learn," Gibson said. "If he goes through this, it'll be good for him in the end. He'll learn how to deal with it. But right now, he's just struggling. He's struggling. We'll get him turned around."
