The lefty is injured once again.

Tyler Skaggs, erstwhile Angel starting pitcher, has demonstrated that he is an Angel starting pitching.

Namely, he’s injured.

In Skaggs’ last start, he pitched 4 innings against the Cubs, with nothing at all suggesting that he had an ankle sprain.

Edit: Apparently he was hurt fielding a bunt.

Jaime Barria is back. He’s allowed to return before the requisite 10 days because this is a injury-related re-callup.

In further news, RHP John Curtiss is up for Taylor Ward.

To make up the snowed out Cubs game, the Angels will travel to Wrigley on June 3rd.

They will be in Seattle the day before and Anaheim the day after. Not ideal.

To end on a happier note, Trout is back in the lineup!
