The Indians and Two of their Pitchers Tweet Out About the Death of Angels Pitcher Tyler Skaggs

The baseball world is stunned today following word that Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs died Monday in a hotel room in Southlake, Texas.

The 27-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. No foul play is suspected, and an investigation is ongoing, police said.

The Angels game against the Texas Rangers was postponed following the announcement of Skaggs’ death.

“It is with great sorrow that we report Tyler Skaggs passed away earlier today in Texas,” an Angels statement said.

“Tyler has, and always will be, an important part of the Angels Family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his entire family during this devastating time.”

The Indians organization along with two of its players, pitchers Trevor Bauer and Adam Plutko, tweeted out regarding Skaggs’ death.

The Indians at one point were connected to Skaggs in trade talks back in 2012 when he was a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Tribe went up against Skaggs last season on April 4th, as in a no-decision in an eventual Angels 3-2 win Skaggs went 4.2 innings, allowing two runs on five hits with five K’s.
