Insight: He's coming back from a strained hamstring. Hector Santiago (0-7, 4.41 ERA) will get the start on Saturday. If the rehab outing goes well, Skaggs (4-4, 4.34 ERA) should be able to re-join the rotation sometime next week.

5/26/2014 7:08:00 PM
Description: Angels left-hander Tyler Skaggs gave up five runs in seven innings Monday at Seattle, but just two were earned. He struck out eight, walked two and allowed seven hits.
Insight: A two-out error by Erick Aybar in the bottom of the second led to three unearned runs for the Mariners. Skaggs has a 3.97 ERA, but fantasy owners have to like his 1.14 WHIP and improving strikeout rate (19 Ks in last 20 IP, 28 in first 45 2/3).

4/5/2014 10:43:00 PM

Insight: Skaggs, who was considered a top-10 overall prospect by mlb.com in 2012 when he was with the Diamondbacks, worked on his mechanics after posting a 5.43 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP and an 89.4 mph four-seamer the last two years.

Description: Arizona is calling up lefthander Tyler Skaggs to pitch Monday against Chicago. SOURCE: Arizona Republic
Insight: Skaggs (2-1, 4.03 ERA) has had mixed results in his five big league appearances this season but the D'Backs will continue to give him chances. Trevor Cahill and Brandon McCarthy aren't expected to come off the DL until next month so Skaggs should have quite a few opportunities to prove himself.
 
7/4/2013 12:17:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks lefty Tyler Skaggs will start Friday against the Rockies in place of Trevor Cahill, who is on the DL with a bruised hip. SOURCE: Steve Gilbert, MLB.com
Insight: Skaggs has a 4.26 ERA and an 87/28 K/BB in 76 innings with Triple-A Reno this season, and he just three 8 1/3 shutout innings with 13 K in his latest start. However, the lefty has posted a 5.67 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP in 46 major league innings.
 
Cold6/10/2013 7:15:00 PM
Description: The Diamondbacks are sending lefthander Tyler Skaggs back to Triple-A.
Insight: Skaggs looked awful on Sunday, allowing eight hits, three walks and five earned runs in five innings. Despite his struggles, Skaggs (1-1, 5.40 ERA) is still a top prospect and likely to receive another chance at the major league level later this season.
 
6/9/2013 8:33:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks left-hander Tyler Skaggs has given up 10 earned runs on 14 hits in 10 2/3 innings since being recalled to take the place of Brandon McCarthy (shoulder) in the rotation.
Insight: Baseball America ranked Skaggs 12th on its preseason top-100 prospects list. The left-hander had a rough year at Triple-A, posting a 5.23 ERA after posting a 5.83 ERA in 29 1/3 major league innings last season. He'll have an easier matchup at San Diego his next time out.
 
6/4/2013 5:01:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks prospect Tyler Skaggs has been recalled from Triple-A Reno to start Tuesday against the Cardinals. Skaggs is replacing Brandon McCarthy (shoulder) in the rotation while McCarthy is on the DL.
Insight: Baseball America ranked Skaggs 12th on its preseason top-100 prospects list. The left-hander has had a rough year at Triple-A, posting a 5.23 ERA, but he does have a 54/17 K/BB in 51 2/3 innings and threw a six-inning, three-hit, no-run, nine-strikeout start against the Rangers on May 27. On potential alone, he should be owned in most leagues.
 
6/3/2013 6:55:00 PM
Description: Tyler Skaggs will make his second start of the season Tuesday against the Cardinals. SOURCE: Steve Gilbert, MLB.com
Insight: He'll take over for Brandon McCarthy, who was recently placed on the DL with a right shoulder injury. Skaggs is 2-3 with a 4.84 ERA in seven big league appearances.
