Tyler Skaggs exited Thursday’s start in the fifth inning with forearm tightness and now the Angels have placed the 22-year-old left-hander on the disabled list.
Skaggs, who was acquired from the Diamondbacks this offseason in the trade for Mark Trumbo, has a 4.30 ERA in 18 starts with an 86/30 K/BB ratio in 113 innings.
He was throwing a no-hitter at the time of the injury, but now he’s been shut down with what the team is calling a strained forearm and Hector Santiago may be called upon to re-enter the Angels’ rotation.
