Toxicology reports ruled his death an accident, disclosing he had a combination of fentanyl, oxycodone and oxymorphone in his system at the time of his death.
Kay also reportedly told investigators about two team officials that he informed of Skaggs' drug use, one of whom was former longtime vice president of communications Tim Mead, who left this year to become president of the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown.
According to an explosive ESPN report, Angels' Director of Communications Eric Kay met with U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigators and detailed how he provided Skaggs, 27, with oxycodone and abused it with him for years.
Eric Kay, a 24-year employee of the Angels' PR department, told the Drug Enforcement Agency he had provided opioids to Skaggs and used them with the pitcher for years, according to ESPN.
Outside the Lines on Saturday, citing two sources with knowledge of the investigation, reported details of interviews Kay had with DEA agents from the Dallas and Los Angeles field offices in September.

Ahead of the team's trip to Texas where they were scheduled to play against the Rangers, he said "he illegally obtained six oxycodone pills and gave three to Skaggs".
Skaggs texted Kay the day the team left for Texas, asking for more pills, but Kay didn't have any more to give him, the sources said.
ESPN was told by Kay's mother that he started abusing opioids in the late 1990s, after the death of his father.
Kay is accused of also telling investigators that his provision of drugs to Skaggs was part of a longstanding arrangement between the two men, in which Kay would acquire drugs for both he and Skaggs, with Skaggs covering the costs involved.
Eric Kay is now in outpatient treatment for substance abuse and has been placed on paid leave from the Angels. Kay recognized that two of the lines could have been crushed oxycodone, but the third was not a substance he recognized, the sources said. "We continue to mourn the loss of Tyler and fully cooperate with the authorities as they continue their investigation". Kay says he told Mead about Skaggs' use as early as 2017. However, I am aware and respectful of the fact that my pain is entirely insignificant compared to the pain that the Skaggs family is feeling and will continue to feel for the rest of their lives.
Team spokeswoman Marie Garvey says the second unnamed official also denied knowing about Skaggs' drug use.
