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.
“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.
