Multiple people who were hanging out with Tyler Skaggs on the day before he died tell TMZ Sports there were no obvious signs anything was wrong — “He seemed completely normal.”
One source tells us, “I was with him on Sunday. He seemed like himself.”
Another source added, “There was no indication anything was wrong” … saying the 27-year-old’s death was “shocking,” especially since Tyler had pitched just 2 days before he died.
Skaggs and the rest of the L.A. Angels flew from Anaheim to Dallas on Sunday … and Skaggs was in such a good mood, he suggested the team take a funny Cowboy-themed team photo at the airport. He posted the photo Sunday evening saying, “Howdy ya’ll.”
The very next day, Skaggs was found unconscious in his hotel room — and was pronounced dead at the scene when paramedics arrived.
Officials say there were no obvious signs of suicide or foul play — and the medical examiner is currently investigating. An autopsy and toxicology tests have been performed but the results have not been made public. It could take between 4 and 6 weeks for the toxicology results to come back.
The Angels organization has said they have no information on the cause of death.
