At Skaggs trial, 4 MLB players testify they received drugs


AP Sports Writer

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Four major league players have testified they received oxycodone pills from a former Los Angeles Angels employee accused of providing Tyler Skaggs the drugs that led to the pitcher’s overdose death. Pitchers Matt Harvey, Mike Morin and Cam Bedrosian and first baseman C.J. Cron were all on the stand. They played for the Angels. Former team employee Eric Kay faces federal drug distribution and conspiracy charges. The 27-year-old Skaggs was found dead in July 2019 in a suburban Dallas hotel room. Prosecutors rested their case Tuesday, a day that also included testimony from Skaggs’ widow about the last time she saw her husband and the last text she received from him.
