Just seeing reports that Tyler Skaggs of the Angels passed away today in Texas ahead of the start of the series there. Game tonight has been called.

No reports on the cause of death yet. 27 years old. Dang.

Man, I know he was very talented. And more importantly, 27 is so young. I was just looking at that game and wondering why it had been postponed, since there's no rain in the area.

Apparently no foul play is suspected.

During the St. Louis series I was thinking he looked like a talented pitcher with a bright future, then you read about this. Just a shame, too bad.

Sounds like the PD responded to a call at the hotel and found him dead in his hotel room this afternoon around 2 o'clock.

Found unresponsive in a hotel room, declared dead on the scene. The fact that a 27 year old is dead is bad enough, I just hope there isn’t additional heartache in the cause of death.
