As Radar readers know, the newly married Skaggs was discovered unconscious in his hotel room Monday evening, July 21 in Southlake, Texas. He was just 27 years old.

He was due to play in a game that night against the Texas Rangers.

"The Southlake Police Department responded to a call of an unconscious male in a room in the Hilton Hotel,” local cops confirmed in a statement to Radar. “Officers arrived and found the male unresponsive and he was pronounced deceased at the scene.”

Skaggs had just played two days earlier for the Angels, pitching four innings and striking out five players.

“It is with great sorrow that we report Tyler Skaggs passed away earlier today in Texas,” the Angels said in a statement. “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.”
