Skaggs played 7 years in the MLB before his death in July ... starting 96 career games with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Angels.
The 27-year-old won 28 career games and posted an ERA of 4.41.
Skaggs' family announced last Friday they are working tirelessly to find out who might have given the former pitcher the drugs, saying, "We were shocked to learn that it may involve an employee of the Los Angeles Angels."
"We will not rest until we learn the truth about how Tyler came into possession of these narcotics, including who supplied them."
