Tyler Skaggs was a pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He was one of the starting pitchers in the Angels Rotation. He loved baseball. He was a great pitcher. He had one of the nastiest curveballs in the league. The man made his debut with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2012. Tyler was drafted by the Angels in the first round of the 2009 MLB Draft.
Tyler married his wife, Carli, only months before his death. In 2019, he posted a 7-7 record for the Angels. He was found dead in his hotel room in Southlake, Texas on 1 July, 2019. No cause of death is known right now. His death brings Angels fans and players alike memories of Nick Adenhart and Luis Valbuena for the Angels, and then memories of Jose Fernandez (MIA), Yordano Ventura (KC), and Oscar Taveras (STL) to the rest of Major League Baseball.
Tyler loved life, he brought life to the Angels clubhouse, he brought energy to the field every single day that he played. He loved what he did until the end. Tyler was definitely one of the most down-to-earth players in all of baseball. He was humble, kind, and played his heart out every single day he played
Tyler, rest easy. You are an Angel now. I hope you can dominate the heaven's baseball league just like you twirled around the MLB with your nasty curveball. You are home now.
