OC Register: Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs goes on IL with sprained ankle

1 post in this topic

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Angels got Mike Trout back but lost Tyler Skaggs on Monday.

While Trout returned to the lineup for the first time since Tuesday, after nursing a sore right hamstring, Skaggs was placed on the injured list with a sprained left ankle.

Skaggs said he’s scheduled to throw on Monday afternoon and then have a bullpen session in a few days, so it’s possible he will miss the minimum 10 days.

Skaggs said he landed awkwardly in the fourth inning of Friday’s start at Wrigley Field. He was trying to field a bunt by Kyle Schwarber. He finished the inning but his velocity dropped.

Skaggs said an MRI exam on Saturday afternoon showed no serious damage.

The Angels recalled Jaime Barría to take Skaggs’ spot on the roster. There was no immediate word on what the Angels would do with the rotation. They have Trevor Cahill starting on Monday and Matt Harvey on Wednesday, with Félix Peña and Barría available for Tuesday. Chris Stratton could pitch as soon as Thursday.

The Angels also recalled reliever John Curtiss and optioned Taylor Ward. The Angels needed Ward when Zack Cozart was hit by a pitch.
