Angels’ Tyler Skaggs to undergo Tommy John surgery

Angels lefty Tyler Skaggs will undergo Tommy John surgery and will perhaps be sidelined until the 2016 season. The team made the announcement on Sunday. Not long ago, the team placed Skaggs on the DL with a flexor strain, and now, obviously, the worst-case scenario has been realized.

Well, sh!t.

I had a feeling it would come to this when he left the game on the 31st. He had lost velocity last year, and regained most of it this year. It almost seemed predestined that he needed surgery after last year. And once I saw that it was tightness in his forearm I had pretty much written off all of 2015.

I hope he gets well and can contribute in the future, cause he looks like he has pretty great stuff.
