Angels lefty Tyler Skaggs will undergo Tommy John surgery and will perhaps be sidelined until the 2016 season. The team made the announcement on Sunday. Not long ago, the team placed Skaggs on the DL with a flexor strain, and now, obviously, the worst-case scenario has been realized.

This season, Skaggs, age 23, has pitched to a 4.30 ERA and 2.87 K/BB ratio in 113 innings of work. The Angels acquired Skaggs from the Diamondbacks this past winter as part of a three-way trade with the White Sox that, in part, sent Mark Trumbo to Arizona.
