Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 282,836 views on Monday, 1 July 2019 our article of the day is Tyler Skaggs.

Tyler Wayne Skaggs (July 13, 1991 – July 1, 2019) was an American professional baseball pitcher who played for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Angels of Major League Baseball (MLB).

The Angels selected Skaggs in the first round of the 2009 MLB draft. After they traded him to the Diamondbacks, Skaggs debuted in MLB in 2012. The Diamondbacks traded Skaggs back to the Angels during the 2013–14 off-season, and he pitched for the team until 2019. Skaggs posted a career earned run average of 4.41 and recorded 476 strikeouts, with a record of 28 wins and 38 losses.

On July 1, 2019, Skaggs was found dead in his hotel room in Southlake, Texas, where the Angels were visiting to play the Texas Rangers; the cause of death has yet to be determined.
