Angels | Tyler Skaggs won't return this year

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 11:39:50 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) has ramped up the intensity of his twice-weekly bullpen sessions, throwing around 70% intensity on Mondays and Fridays. Skaggs' timetable won't be affected at all by the injury to SP C.J. Wilson (elbow), though. Skaggs isn't expected to pitch this year and won't face hitters until September.

Fantasy Tip: You obviously won't have to worry about Skaggs in single-year formats, but he's not a bad pitching option to own and stash in deep dynasty leagues for next season.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs continues to progress

Thu, 07 May 2015 11:12:38 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) is hoping to throw off a mound in the middle of July. The left-hander is nine months removed from Tommy John surgery and has been throwing in six-week intervals. Skaggs doesn't have much interest in pitching in minor league games in August and September, because he won't return to the majors this year anyway.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs won't pitch in the majors in 2015, so he's of no use to FantasyScore users or owners in traditional seasonal leagues. However, next year he should be ready for spring training and the start of the season with a spot in the team's starting rotation.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs rehab update

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 12:54:00 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) has increased his throwing distance to 110 feet and expects to be able to resume throwing off a mound in eight weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs is recovering from Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to return to action until 2016, so he shouldn't be on your immediate fantasy baseball radar.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs taking recovery slowly

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 15:53:03 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow), who won't pitch at all until 2016, has been cleared to resume lifting weights, but he's taking his recovery slowly. He'll be allowed to resume throwing, too, shortly after the new year, but he'll only do so in six-week intervals and will begin with underhand tosses. He has been rehabbing four days a week with a trainer. "It's a slow process," Skaggs said. "It's really getting to me at the moment, because I sit here and my arm is feeling great, I'm happy and I want to push it, but at the same time, I have to take a step back and realize that I'm not even playing next year, so I have to take it slow."

Angels | No timetable for Tyler Skaggs

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 17:01:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, there is no timetable for the return of Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (forearm) from the 15-day disabled list, according to manager Mike Scioscia. Doctors said he has a strain of the flexor tendon, which is part of the forearm but is in a more sensitive location and could be a precursor to a more serious injury. Skaggs lost feeling in his fingers and said he "over-pronated" his arm on a changeup Thursday, July 31, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: With Skaggs sidelined, the team is expected to keep Hector Santiago in the rotation. Fantasy owners will want to keep Skaggs reserved for now, and drop him if it is determined he will be sidelined for several weeks or more.
