Skaggs Placed on DL with Forearm Strain

Sat, 02 Aug 2014 07:18:00 +0000

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- Starting pitcher Tyler Skaggs was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Los Angeles Angels Friday due to a left forearm strain.

Skaggs was pitching a no-hitter through 4 2/3 innings against the Orioles Thursday night before waiving to the dugout to have his pitching arm checked out. He was then pulled from the game.

"He's going to be on the DL, and it looks like a forearm strain," Angels skipper Mike Scioscia said. "He'll get some other opinions on exactly what is going on, but we'll just take it one step at a time. It's something that might take a little bit of time."
While there is no timetable for Skaggs return, Scioscia expects the left-hander to pitch again this season.

Left-hander Michael Roth was recalled from Double-A Arkansas to take Skaggs place.
