However, it was only after Skenes was officially placed on the development list by the Pirates during the first week of September, indicating that he would not be pitching for the rest of the season. The official announcement highlighted, “Since we signed him, we had talked about working backward from April 2024 and designing this in preparation for that.” During his time off, he returned to Livvy and Louisiana where the two stay together while Olivia’s support remains constant for her man.
