Arizona Acquires Skaggs From Angels

According to a team press release, the Diamondbacks have acquired Tyler Skaggs from the Angels to complete the Dan Haren trade.  Skaggs has long been expected to be the player to be named later in the swap.

The left-hander was the Halos' supplemental first round selection (40th overall) in 2009.  Skaggs, 19, has posted a 3.61 ERA with 9.0 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9 for Class-A Cedar Rapids this season.  Baseball America believes that Skaggs projects as a solid mid-rotation starter.
