Cleveland Indians left-handed starting pitcher Scott Kazmir
has been scratched from his first scheduled start of the regular season due to
an abdominal injury, according to Nick Camino of WTAM 1100.

Kazmir suffered his abdominal injury during a workout
Monday, and there was thought at the time that it could result in him missing
his Indiansâ€™ debut this weekend against his former team, the Tampa Bay Rays. It
appears that Cleveland will play it safe with Kazmir â€“ who has dealt with
several injuries in recent years.
In order to rule out a more severe injury, Kazmir will
undergo an MRI today. The 29-year-old maintained an ERA of 3.46 with 13
strikeouts to one walk this spring to earn the No. 5 spot in the Indiansâ€™
starting rotation. He had joined the Indians over the winter on a minor league
