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.

News: Skaggs (elbow) played catch from 150 feet Monday, MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports.
Impact: For the time being, Skaggs is scheduled to throw from that distance four times a week as he aims to build back his arm strength. If that activity goes according to plan, Skaggs would then resume throwing off a mound. Though the lefty seems to be progressing well from Tommy John surgery, he's still not a candidate to return in 2015 after undergoing the procedure just under 10 months ago.
