Skaggs was found dead on July 1 at the Texas hotel where the team was staying ahead of their game against the Rangers later that night. The cause of death is not scheduled to be announced until October. Police said neither foul play nor suicide was suspected.

The 27-year-old southpaw was 28-38 with a 4.41 career ERA and was having a solid season for the Angels.
