Tyler Skaggs – Skaggs was originally drafted out of high school by the Angels in 2009.  He was traded the next season to the Diamondbacks so the Angels could acquire Dan Haren from the D-Backs.  Skaggs made his major league debut in 2012 going 1-3 with a 5.83 ERA.  He followed it up with a 2-3 record  with a 5.23 ERA.  Then surprise, surprise Skaggs was traded back to the Angels in 2014.  Skaggs in his only major league season with the Angels went 5-5 with a 4.30 ERA before his season-ending injury.  Skaggs has a lot of potential with a tremendous upside.  How he will come back from Tommy John surgery is anyone’s guess.  With such a small sample size it is hard to determine much about Skaggs.  Can Skaggs pitch well enough to earn a spot in the 2016 rotation is the burning question:?  My answer is a wait and see.  Skaggs will hopefully pass with flying colors.  Skaggs may start the season on the DL just as a precaution.  No matter what you will see or hear from him 2016 Skaggs is in the rotation to stay together.
