Angels' Tyler Skaggs out 10-12 weeks with oblique strain

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Los Angeles Angels left-hander Tyler Skaggs probably will be sidelined for 10 to 12 weeks with a strained right oblique muscle.

The Angels announced the latest major injury for their pitching staff Monday.

Skaggs left his most recent start after five innings last Friday. He is 1-1 with a 3.99 ERA in five starts this season after missing nearly two years following Tommy John surgery.

Angels right-hander Garrett Richards has made only one start this season due to a biceps injury, while starters Andrew Heaney and Nick Tropeano are out for the year following Tommy John surgery.

The Angels also have their top three relievers on the disabled list: Huston Street, Cam Bedrosian and Andrew Bailey. Nine pitchers have been on Los Angeles' disabled list already this season.
