Angels | Tyler Skaggs will pitch Wednesday

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 14:40:55 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow, shoulder) will throw a three-inning extended spring training outing in Arizona Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs is working his way back from Tommy John surgery and has had some hiccups along the way. He hasn't pitched since 2014 when he posted a 4.30 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 6.8 K/9. At this point, you'll want to take a wait-and-see approach with Skaggs outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only setups.

Angels | Another setback for Tyler Skaggs

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 16:21:24 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow, shoulder) has had his throwing program slowed in Arizona with a shoulder setback. Skaggs had Tommy John surgery back in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: The Angels don't believe Skaggs' shoulder issues are serious, but he won't be able to start a rehab assignment anytime soon. It's been one thing after another for Skaggs, who was promising before his elbow surgery two years ago. It could be another lost season for him.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs getting closer

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 14:41:34 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs' (elbow, shoulder) next outing in Arizona -- five innings Wednesday, June 8 -- will be his last before rejoining Class AAA.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs is still on the comeback trail from Tommy John surgery and has not appeared in a major league game since the middle of the 2014 season, when he was 5-5 with a 4.30 ERA in 18 starts. The left-hander will carry some noteworthy potential when he's finally ready to return to the big league club, so owners might want to think about stashing him in AL-only formats. Eventually, he should have mixed league appeal, too.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs continues to progress

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 15:15:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) threw four innings during an extended spring training outing Friday, June 3. He was originally scheduled to throw three innings, but his pitch count was low. General Manager Billy Eppler said the reports on Skaggs were "really good."

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs still has a few more hurdles to clear before returning to the rotation for Los Angeles, but he remains a viable stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Stay tuned for updates.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs throws Wednesday

Wed, 25 May 2016 19:03:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (biceps, neck) threw his third bullpen session Wednesday, May 25, and is scheduled to throw a simulated game Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs is recovering from Tommy John surgery and should remain stashed in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues. Given the state of the Angels' rotation, he has a decent chance of earning a starting role once he is healthy enough to return.

Angels | Another setback for Tyler Skaggs?

Tue, 10 May 2016 16:34:37 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (biceps, neck) did not do his strength test Tuesday, May 10, because he was experiencing some tightness in his neck and trapezius area. The Angels didn't want to risk it.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs' recovery from Tommy John has been a slow and arduous process. The Angels are likely just being extremely cautious given the sad state of injury affairs already for their starting pitching. He's already more than a full 18 months removed from elbow construction and showed fine skills before his injury, so he could contribute for fantasy owners as a starter later this year. For now, stash him in deep AL leagues and watch his progress elsewhere.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs starting long toss

Fri, 06 May 2016 15:42:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (biceps) will have a strength test Monday, May 9, and he'll start an "aggressive" long toss program Saturday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: With news that Garrett Richards is likely to have Tommy John surgery, Skaggs, coming off Tommy John of his own, should get a shot at a rotation spot whenever he's ready to return. That'll make him a stash option in AL-only leagues. He was on the upswing before his injury, so keep him monitored in deep mixed affairs.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs shut down for a week

Mon, 02 May 2016 21:43:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (biceps) returned to Southern California to have an MRI. He is dealing with biceps tendinitis, and will not throw for a week before being re-evaluated.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs had been dealing with tightness in his shoulder recently, and now this. He is only worth a look in AL fantasy play and deeper mixed formats when healthy.

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.
