    • Angels' Tyler Skaggs: Fans seven in no-decision
      By RotoWire Staff

      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. 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.

    • Angels' Tyler Skaggs: Takes no-decision Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      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. 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.

    • Angels' Tyler Skaggs: Holds Indians to two runs
      By RotoWire Staff

      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. 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 shut them out over seven innings in their previous meeting Sept. 13.

    • Angels' Tyler Skaggs: Pitches well in tough matchup
      By RotoWire Staff

      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. 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 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. 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.
