Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Angels announced Sunday that starter Tyler Skaggs will undergo Tommy John surgery in the near future.

Skaggs was placed on the disabled list earlier this month with what the team called a left forearm strain, but more tests showed he had a torn UCL in his left elbow.

The 23-year-old lefty had a no-hitter going against the Orioles on July 31 when the injury forced him to exit with two outs in the fifth inning.

Skaggs went 5-5 with a 4.30 earned run average in 18 starts this season.
