Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs died Monday afternoon in Texas at the team hotel, hours before the team was scheduled to begin a four-game series against the Rangers.
The Southlake (Texas) Police Department said police were called to the team hotel this afternoon and found Skaggs "unresponsive" in his room. The department said no foul play is suspected and the investigation is ongoing.
A 911 call at 2:18 CT summoned Tarrant County emergency personnel to the Angels' team hotel in Southlake. Just more than a minute later, an emergency dispatch termed it a "possible death investigation" and Southlake police were summoned.
