Tyler Skaggs Dead at 27

The 27-year-old Tyler Skaggs was found dead in his hotel room in Texas earlier today. The cause of death has not yet been confirmed. 

A Major League Baseball game was postponed after the news was shared by the Los Angeles Angels on Twitter. The team wrote: 

"It is with great sorrow that we report Tyler Skaggs passed away earlier today in Texas. Tyler has, and always will be, an important part of the Angels Family."

The Angels also offered their support, thoughts and prayers to Skaggs' wife, his daughter, and "his entire family during this devastating time."

As reported by TMZ, the Southlake Police Department in Texas confirmed that authorities were called to the Hilton Hotel shortly after 2 pm. The police department adds: 

"Officers arrived and found the male unresponsive and he was pronounced deceased at the scene. At this time, no foul play is suspected."

Investigation officers said the inquiry is ongoing; they will release "pertinent information as it is available."

Following the postponement of the baseball game against the Rangers, the opposing team said in a media statement: 

"The Texas Rangers organization wants to express its deepest sympathies to the family of Tyler Skaggs and to the entire Angels organization on this shocking loss. [...] Tonight's game will be made up at a date to be determined."

Skaggs was born in Woodland Hills, California and joined the Los Angeles Angels in 2009. He was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks the following year. 

In 2012, he was transferred back to the Angels but had to step down after undergoing elbow surgery two years later. 

He returned to the Angels in 2016. Skaggs is survived by wife Carli whom he married in 2018, and their daughter.
