Profile: Skaggs returned from Tommy John surgery with mixed results. His 9.1 strikeouts per nine innings was a great start, but the 4.2 walks per nine were a drag on his performance. Usually, command is the last aspect of a pitcher’s game to return after TJS, so seeing the lefty struggle was not a surprise. If he is going to move up into the next tier of pitchers, he is going to need to get his walks under control. The rest of his game seems to be acceptable. His fastball ticked up in 2014 from 89.2 mph to 92.1 mph. After coming back from surgery, it jumped to 92.8 mph. Even with the velocity increase, it performs below average for a fastball. With just an average change and a just-above-average curve, he is riding the line of relevance in shallow leagues. It would be great if he dropped his BB/9 down a point (talent near Carlos Rodon and Kenta Maeda) or two (David Price level). If not, he will be lumped in with the Tyson Ross and Francisco Liriano class of pitchers. (Jeff Zimmerman)

The Quick Opinion: Skaggs needs to drop his walk rate down to continue progressing after Tommy John surgery.
