The time has come! Tyler Skaggs will officially make his first Big League start for the Halos since July 31, 2014 against the Kansas City Royals! After undergoing Tommy John Surgery, and a prolonged recovery process that involved a lot of fatigue, the young lefty is finally getting another chance to make himself a staple in the Angels’ rotation of the future. Here is the panel on Angels Live discussing Tyler’s return in detail:
With a record of 43-55 and 13 1/2 games back in the AL West, this will be a boost for the Angels if all goes well. The club just won 10 of 12 before being swept over the weekend by an Astros team that they’re 1-11 against. That split, along with 0-9 against the Yankees, Cardinals, and Cubs (a split of 1-23) is pretty much where the Halos’ season is. With pitching being the main culprit, the team needs Skaggs to perform alongside a resurgent Matt Shoemaker.
And considering their rotation needs for next season, this is a very important step for this organization. We wish Tyler a healthy and productive return!
