— Player Notes
Advice: Skaggs has completed his rehab from Tommy John surgery and also from a shoulder ailment that cropped up earlier this season. The usual caution should be applied here with anyone coming back from Tommy John surgery, but Skaggs was dominant of late for Triple-A Salt Lake, allowing just two runs while striking out 26 over his last 12 2/3 frames. He's worth a flier in deeper mixed leagues.

Advice: Skaggs yielded just one hit over his 5 2/3 innings of work. He is nearing a return to the majors after undergoing Tommy John surgery in the August of 2014. Several setbacks have prevented him from a speedier recovery. The 25-year-old southpaw could rejoin the Angels next week.

Advice: Skaggs was originally scheduled to pitch on Tuesday, but he was pushed back a day due to rain. Nick Tropeano (elbow) appears likely to land on the disabled list, so Skaggs could replace him in the rotation as soon as next week. The Angels have a scheduled off-day on Thursday, so they can skip Tropeano's next turn this weekend.Rotoworld
Advice: Skaggs was fantastic in his most recent start on Thursday, allowing just one hit and no walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out 14 batters. His return from Tommy John surgery was pushed back due to a shoulder issue, but he's back on track now and should be stashed in a DL spot in deeper fantasy leagues.Rotoworld
