No foul play suspected in Tyler Skaggs’ death

The Los Angeles Angels announced on Monday that pitcher Tyler Skaggs has died at age 27, and police have provided some new details.

According to a press release from the Southlake Police Department, Skaggs was found dead at the Hilton hotel after a report of an unconscious male came in on Monday afternoon. While the cause of death has not been determined or revealed, police say no foul play is suspected.

Southlake Police later updated their statement to add that suicide is also not suspected.

Skaggs was in his fifth season pitching for the Angels. This is the second time in a decade that the team has tragically lost one of its players, as former pitcher Nick Adenhart was killed by a drunk driver back in 2009.
