Angels statement

ANAHEIM, CA – The Angels released the following statement today regarding the lawsuits filed by the Skaggs family.

“The Angels have been informed that a civil suit has been filed by the Skaggs family,” said Angels spokesperson Marie Garvey.

“In 2019, Angels Baseball hired a former federal prosecutor to conduct an independent investigation to comprehensively understand the circumstances that led to Tyler’s tragic death. The investigation confirmed that the Organization did not know that Tyler was using opioids, nor was anyone in management aware or informed of any employee providing opioids to any player.

The lawsuits are entirely without merit and the allegations are baseless and irresponsible. The Angels Organization strongly disagrees with the claims made by the Skaggs family and we will vigorously defend these lawsuits in court.”
