Skaggs started the 2012 season with Mobile, receiving a promotion to the Reno Aces of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League in late June. He appeared in the 2012 All-Star Futures Game. Skaggs made his MLB debut on August 22, and gave up just two runs through 6 13 innings of work and was awarded the win.

Second stint with the Angels

The Diamondbacks traded Skaggs back to the Angels on December 10, 2013, in a three-team trade also involving the Chicago White Sox. The Angels received Hector Santiago along with Skaggs, while the White Sox received Adam Eaton and the Diamondbacks received Mark Trumbo and two players to be named later. In August 2014, Skaggs underwent Tommy John surgery, and he later decided that he would not pitch for the entire 2015 season. He'd finish his first season with the Angels with a 5-5 record in 18 starts. After more than a year recovering from Tommy John, Skaggs returned to the mound and started 10 games for the Angels. For the 2017 season, Skaggs will open in the Angels rotation.

Pitching style

Skaggs mainly throws three pitches, leading with a four-seam at 91 to 94 miles per hour (146–151 km/h). He also throws a curveball 72 to 76 miles per hour (116–122 km/h), and a changeup against right-handed hitters 78 to 81 miles per hour (126–130 km/h). Baseball America and other scouts regards the curve as his best pitch, while the changeup is less developed.
