Our own Raymond Bureau reported on June 10 that Skaggs was placed on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring. Skaggs left his last start after five innings and four earned runs. Manager Mike Scioscia said that Skaggs should return on June 26 when he's eligible to come off the disabled list.
Jeff Fletcher, who covers the Angels for the Orange County Register, tweeted the following update on Skaggs.
#Angels LHP Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) ran on the field and did some cuts today. Said he's improving.Hector Santiago, who struggled earlier this season, took Skaggs place in the rotation and pitched well in his last outing. He allowed no runs on three hits, while striking out eight, in six innings. Santiago is 0-6 with a 4.15 ERA this season.
