LA Angels discuss tragic death of Tyler Skaggs

Skaggs, 27, was found unresponsive in a hotel room and pronounced dead at the scene by police in Southlake.

An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of death.

Angels manager Brad Ausmus said on Tuesday (July 3) the team had met twice to celebrate the life of the hard-throwing lefty, who had become a key part of their starting rotation, posting a 7-7 record this season.

"Most importantly in the end we were able to talk about Tyler and laugh about some of the stories and some of the goofy things he did.

Listen to some of his music," he said.

"It was good," Ausmus said, wiping away tears.
