It is such a shocking and saddening thing to learn, and I don’t think any of us know the right way to proceed other than to wish the best possible for Tyler Skaggs’ family, friends, and teammates.
Just terrible news:

I’m still in shock. Just yesterday, Tyler Skaggs was talking about how badly he wanted to pitch at Dodger Stadium in an Angels uniform. One of the kindest, most straightforward people I’ve met in baseball. I’m devastated for his family and teammates.

The death of Tyler Skaggs has taken my breath away. One of the coolest, nicest, most down-to-Earth people you could ever meet; someone who was really starting to come into his own, too. Devastated for his family, especially his wife and his mom.
