Angels Pitcher Tyler Skaggs Dies in Texas at 27 years old.

Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs died Monday, the team announced. He was 27.

Police responded to a report of an unconscious man in a hotel room in Southlake, Texas, and pronounced Skaggs dead at the scene. No foul play is suspected and an investigation is ongoing, police said.

"It is with great sorrow that we report Tyler Skaggs passed away earlier today in Texas," an Angels statement said. "Tyler has, and always will be, an important part of the Angels Family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his entire family during this devastating time."

The Angels' game against the Texas Rangers scheduled for Monday was postponed.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told media that he had only discussed the postponement of Monday's game with MLB, but he would be open to talking if the league feels more should be done.

Skaggs last pitched Saturday, going five innings at home against Oakland. He had gone 7-7 this year in 15 starts, recording a 4.29 ERA with 78 strikeouts in 79⅔ innings.

A Los Angeles-area native, Skaggs was born in Woodland Hills and went to high school in Santa Monica. The Angels drafted him with the 40th pick in the first round in the 2009 draft.

He was traded to the Diamondbacks in August 2010 and made his major league debut two years later. Arizona traded him back to the Angels after the 2013 season.

Skaggs' death comes 10 years after another Angels pitcher, Nick Adenhart, died in a car crash along with two other people in April 2009. A drunk driver was convicted of murder and sentenced to 51 years to life in 2010.

This is a horrifying thing, my thoughts and prayers go out to the Skaggs family, and I hope that they are able to recover from their loss. I hope the MLB memorializes his death and doesn't just give a postponement of one game. After the death of Jose Fernandez just back in 2016, another player's death is really horrid to see. RIP Tyler Skaggs July 13, 1991-July 1, 2019.

Wow, and I saw he just pitched too the other day? I'm unfamiliar with the sport but It's horrible to see someone so young go out like that. I've had to friends pass away at an incredibly young age and it's never something you can comprehend at first. Thoughts are with his family.
