As widely reported and all but formally acknowledged, Tyler Skaggs is now officially the final piece in the Dan Haren trade.

Here's the team release:

(PHOENIX) - The Arizona Diamondbacks announced today that they have acquired left-handed pitcher Tyler Skaggs from the Los Angeles Angels to complete the July 25 trade for Dan Haren, according to D-backs' interim General Manager Jerry Dipoto.

Skaggs, 19, was named the Angels eighth-best prospect by Baseball America prior to the 2010 season. He went 8-4 with a 3.61 ERA (33 ER in 82.1 IP) and .252 opponents average (78-for-309) with 21 walks and 82 strikeouts in 19 games (14 starts) with Single-A Cedar Rapids this season, garnering Midwest League All-Star honors.

He limited right-handed hitters to a .229 average (48-for-210) with 60 strikeouts, while holding the opposition to 2 runs or less in 11 of his 14 starts. In 24 games (15 starts) over two seasons in the Angels organization, he went 8-4 with a 3.41 ERA (35 ER in 92.1 IP) and .249 opponents average (87-for-349) with 23 walks and 95 strikeouts.

Skaggs was selected by the Angels in the supplemental round (40th overall) of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft.

Skaggs will report to Single-A South Bend.
