Manager Mike Scioscia said no decisions have been made about either player's immediate future in regards to whether they'll need to go on the 10-day disabled list.

"We'll see," Scioscia said. "We've got to see how things set up with these guys first. We'll have some decisions when we get more input."

Skaggs said he felt pain in his right oblique area when he struck out Joey Gallo for the second out of the fifth inning. Skaggs went on to get Jonathan Lucroy to fly out, then informed the Angels' staff of his issue. He left after going five innings, allowing one earned run on four hits and striking out six.

"On the one pitch -- a strikeout on Gallo -- threw a curveball, and I felt like a little pinch on my right between my rib and my hip," Skaggs said. "I pitched through it at the end against Lucroy. … But I knew if I kept pitching on it, it was going to get worse, so I decided to say something.

"It's frustrating, but it's a small bump in the road."

Cron singled on the next pitch after injuring himself in the eighth inning, and he had to be lifted for pinch-runner Jefry Marte.

"I don't ever want to come out of baseball games," Cron said. "Unfortunately, I couldn't really move.

"X-rays seemed to be no break, so I guess we'll wait for the inflammation to go down and see where it's at. I guess it's too early to tell. I think we'll have a better understanding tomorrow. It's a little tender right now, so I'm just trying to stay off it."
