Tyler Skaggs threw one of his best games of the season against the Oakland A’s on June 15.Skaggs has since been on the disabled list three times Alex Colome Jersey , while the A’s morphed into the hottest team in baseball over the next three months, making up a 10-game deficit for the final American League wild-card spot and, ultimately, clinching a postseason berth on Monday.Skaggs is scheduled to start Saturday night against the A’s at Angel Stadium, the fifth time he’ll take the mound against Oakland this season. He might face a different A’s lineup now that they’ve locked up the second wild-card spot.Article continues below ...The New York Yankees clinched the first wild-card position and home field for the one-game playoff on Wednesday with an 11-6 win at the Boston Red Sox on Friday night. The victory came about 45 minutes after the A’s started their series opener against the Angels. Oakland went on to lose 8-5.The A’s needed to sweep the Angels this weekend and hope the Red Sox swept the Yankees to send the wild-card game to Oakland.Skaggs (8-9, 3.91 ERA) did not allow an earned run over seven innings in the 8-4 win against the A’s on June 15 in Oakland. He improved to 6-4 with the victory and lowered his ERA to 2.81.The A’s, meanwhile, fell to 34-36 with the loss and dropped 10 games behind the Seattle Mariners for the second wild-card spot.Oakland (96-64) has since gone 62-28 to surge past the Angels and Mariners, clinch a playoff spot and put pressure on the Yankees up until New York’s win on Friday night.Skaggs, meanwhile, has battled groin issues most of the summer.Saturday will be his third start since missing five weeks with a left adductor strain. The Angels (79-81) kept his pitch count in the 50s in his past two outings.He threw three shutout innings against the A’s on Sept. 18 in a 9-7 win, but wasn’t nearly as sharp his next time out, allowing four runs and five hits in 2 1/3 innings of a 6-2 loss to the Houston Astros last Sunday.“Luckily, it’s September, our bullpen is deep http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authentic-edgar-martinez-jersey ,” he told MLB.com after the game. “At the same time, it’s just frustrating.”Skaggs last pitched at Angel Stadium on Aug. 11, also against the A’s, and was rocked for seven runs and 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings of the 7-0 loss. That was his first start game since coming off the disabled list for a second time with an adductor strain.He was much better against Oakland in his other two starts this season. In addition to his outing on June 15, he threw 6 1/3 shutout innings in the second game of the season, earning the victory in the 2-1 win.For his career, Skaggs is 2-5 with a 4.98 ERA in nine starts against the A’s.Trevor Cahill is scheduled to start for Oakland. Cahill (6-4, 3.91) allowed five runs (three earned) and five hits in 3 1/3 innings of a 5-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Sunday, which forced the A’s to wait another day to clinch their playoff spot. The left-hander missed a pair of starts before that outing because of upper back discomfort.“All things considered, I think it was a step in the right direction for him,” A’s manager Bob Melvin told reporters after the game. “The last time we saw him, he was completely out of whack and hurting a little bit.”Cahill faced the Angels in Anaheim on Aug. 12 and entered the fifth inning with an 8-3 lead, but he was lifted after allowing a two-out run-scoring double, leaving him ineligible for the win in the 8-7 victory.He is 5-3 with a 2.44 ERA in 12 career appearances (11 starts) against the Angels.Cahill is 1-3 with a 7.02 ERA on the road this season. Mike Minor and Jaime Barria are hoping to maintain their recent success on the mound when they go head-to-head Monday night in the opener of a three-game series between the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium.Minor (11-7, 4.31 ERA) is 5-1 in his past six starts with a 2.78 ERA. The left-hander has been one of the few recent bright spots for the Rangers (61-82) Marcell Ozuna Jersey , who have lost four in a row and 10 of their past 13 games.Barria (10-8, 3.30) is 4-1 with a 1.82 ERA in his past six starts for the Angels, who have won four in a row and seven of 10. Two of Barria’s recent outings came against the Rangers, and he’s 3-0 against Texas this season with a 0.86 ERA.Article continues below ...Minor is also scheduled to make his second straight start against the Angels after allowing two runs and three hits in five innings of a 4-2 win on Tuesday, his only decision against Los Angeles in four career appearances, including two starts. The Angels were 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position against Minor.Minor was a starter his first five seasons with the Atlanta Braves, missed two seasons because of injuries and then made 65 appearances out of the bullpen for the Kansas City Royals last season. The Rangers acquired Minor in the offseason and they moved him back into a starting role.Minor told MLB.com after his last outing that he’s not surprised with his success as a starter but rather expected it.“That sounds bad, but I think people didn’t expect me to have a good season,” he said. “They thought I should have gone to the bullpen and I wasn’t cut out to be a starter anymore. It feels good to end it like this. Couple more starts to go, but it’s coming together.”Minor brings a 1.10 WHIP in 25 starts into the series opener.The only players in franchise history with a WHIP of 1.1 or lower and at least 25 starts are Ferguson Jenkins (1974, 1978), Bert Blyleven (1976), Nolan Ryan (1989-91) and Yu Darvish (2013).“We couldn’t have asked for it to work any better than it has,” Rangers manager Jeff Banister told MLB.com. “He’ll still get to 29 starts, which I think is an important mark for him to get to. It’s important to continue that process with Mike and not push the envelope at all Miles Mikolas Jersey , so we still have a guy who is fairly fresh into the offseason, in good shape so that when we get to spring training next year, we can take the gloves off and let him run with it.”Barria beat the Rangers on Wednesday in Texas, blanking them on two hits for five innings.“He had to work hard to get through five innings,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia told MLB.com after that game. “We talk about Jaime, what his upside is — even when he’s not as crisp as he was maybe the other night in Houston, he’s facing a tough lineup, and he puts up five zeros and gives us a chance to win.”Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani is getting a chance to hit every game with Albert Pujols sidelined with a knee injury, and he’s 9-for-19 in his past five games with four home runs, a double, triple and 10 RBIs.Ohtani knocked Minor out of the game with a home run to lead off the sixth inning on Tuesday.
