Angels | Tyler Skaggs suffers setback

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 10:34:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (shoulder, elbow) will travel to Los Angeles to get evaluated by the club Monday, May 2, because he has been experiencing tightness in his throwing shoulder recently.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs had been scheduled to make a rehab start Monday, but he hasn't thrown off a mound since doing a bullpen session Wednesday, April 27. Owners in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues should continue to stash him on their rosters and should have a better idea of his timetable to return to action following Monday's exam.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs rehab update

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 18:14:56 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) will make his next rehab start for Class AAA Salt Lake Monday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs was scratched from a rehab outing earlier this week due to fatigue and has pitched fewer than four innings in each of his appearances. He is recovering from Tommy John surgery and could be worth stashing in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues based on potential, although he appears to be several weeks away from returning.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs fatigued

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:54:03 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) was scratched from his start with Class AAA with fatigue, according to general manager Billy Eppler. However, Skaggs is expected to make his next start in the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs is recovering from Tommy John surgery, and the Halos plan to limit his total innings this year, which makes it unlikely that he'd have a major fantasy impact in 2016. He's been up and down in his major league action, but Skaggs has promising potential and could be worth a stash later this year in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Angels | Los Angeles saving Tyler Skaggs' innings

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 13:41:06 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) will not be rushed back to the majors because the organization wants to save his innings for September.

"That's all their plan," Skaggs said. "I haven't had any input or anything. They said they want to save my innings for the end of the year, which completely makes sense. It's frustrating for me because I want to pitch more. But it's a good thing that they care about me, care about my future, about my health."

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs is recovering from a 2014 Tommy John surgery, and he likely still has a few weeks remaining in the minors before he'll join the Angels. When healthy, Skaggs is an intriguing hurler with nice pedigree. However, he hasn't been able to translate his talent into results in the majors yet and owns a career 4.72 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 7.1 K/9 over 31 starts. There is upside, but Skaggs is best viewed as a streaming option in the majority of mixed leagues initially.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs set for rehab start

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 16:32:41 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) is scheduled to throw four innings for Class AAA Salt Lake City on Wednesday, April 20, which will be his third minor league outing of the season. He is "likely" to make at least three more starts in the minors before being considered for the majors.

Fantasy Tip: That puts Skaggs on track to return around the beginning of May, and owners should be tracking his progress when he gets called back up. While he hasn't pitched in the major leagues since July 2014, Skaggs has always been considered a higher-end prospect and will have potential to contribute to fantasy teams in most leagues right away.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs weeks away

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 11:46:23 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow), who is still recovering from Tommy John surgery, is roughly three weeks away from being able to start for the Angels.

Fantasy Tip: Now that Andrew Heaney (forearm) has an injury of his own, Skaggs may be able to enter the starting rotation when he's ready next month. Skaggs displayed nice form before his injury and is worth a flier to stash if you have the room in AL-only leagues. Keep an eye on him in deep mixed formats.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs sent down Saturday

Sat, 02 Apr 2016 09:24:15 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs was sent to the minors Saturday, April 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Angels are being cautious with Skaggs, but he is a full 18 months removed from Tommy John surgery. With the way the Angels' rotation is looking, Skaggs has a good shot to make an impact at the major league level this year. He showed nice skills before his elbow injury, and he's definitely one to stash in AL-only leagues.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs sick Tuesday

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 10:06:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (illness) was scratched from his outing Tuesday, March 29, with an illness. He will now pitch over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs was on the right track before Tommy John surgery. But he's now more than 18 months removed from the surgery and is still a promising pitching prospect for the Angels. He's a control-based ground-ball pitcher that should intrigue those in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, but he'll likely have his innings limited in 2016.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs has nice debut

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 15:35:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) allowed an unearned run with two strikeouts in two innings of his Cactus League debut Thursday, March 24.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good first step for Skaggs, who is 18 months removed from Tommy John surgery. This is a young pitcher that flashed enticing skills before his injury, and he could be of help to owners in all formats eventually. Expect an innings limit, but Skaggs is certainly worth a flier in AL-only leagues and is a watch-list candidate in mixed leagues.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs to debut Thursday

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 11:51:59 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) will throw two innings in a Cactus League game Thursday, March 24, for his first time back since having Tommy John surgery 18 months ago.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs is a promising young arm that showed nice control, command and a ground-ball profile before his elbow injury. Being 18 months removed from TJS is another plus, too, as he could jump right back into action and succeed. He'll have an innings limit, but he could definitely help owners in AL-only and deep mixed leagues.
