Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs passed away in his sleep at the age of 27. Former pro-bowl offensive lineman Kyle Turley explains how he "knew" as soon as the news broke that opioids were to blame. "[Skaggs] was a veteran player. He had an injury. He's on the road and scheduled to start the next day. I know exactly what comes with that [situation], especially if [the player] is dealing with team doctors; it comes with a muscle relaxer, a pain killer and a sleep aid," Turley said in an exclusive interview with JohnWallStreet.
