    Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs died Monday morning in Texas, the team announced. The Southern California native was 27.

    No details were immediately disclosed on the cause or circumstances of his death.

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

    Very sad. Read somewhere earlier today that both teams had scheduled team meetings this morning, but no details as to why. Awful news.

    I just watched him pitch last Saturday night against Oakland. Very sad news.

    Tonight's game is postponed in his memory.

    I believe they ruled out suicide and foul play so this leaves some kind of natural COD. But for some reason they're saying that the autopsy don't be completed until October which is very strange.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    Tonight was the Angels first home game since the death of Tyler Skaggs. The team had a nice memorial ceremony on the field before the game with Tyler's family present. His mom threw out the first pitch and it was a perfect strike from my vantage point. All of the Angels are wearing number 45 on their jerseys which was Tyler's number. It was a nice and emotional goodbye to Tyler.
