News: Skaggs (elbow) is throwing two bullpen sessions a week and recently ramped up to 70 percent intensity, MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports.
Impact: He'll keep rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, but it's extremely unlikely that the Angels rush Skaggs back onto the field this year. At most, perhaps he'll pitch some simulated games toward the end of this season, as Skaggs' eyes are almost certainly on being ready for Opening Day 2016.
