The comeback continues and for the second time this spring Scott Kazmir has held his opponent scoreless.  It’s a long-shot that Kazmir could make the starting rotation but there is also nothing that says he can’t.  Against the Chicago White Sox Friday, Kazmir went two innings struck out three and gave up one hit and for the second time did not walk anyone. That, in my eyes is the biggest factor.  Kazmir has struggled in recent years with control problems but if he can harness his fastball, that appears to be creeping up in velocity and continue to throw strikes, there’s no telling how far he can go.  According to Paul Hoynes of the The Plain Dealer, Kazmir hit between 90 mph - 92 mph on the gun Friday.  In addition, Cleveland Indians Manager Terry Francona, who was quoted in The News-Herald, had nothing but good things to say about Kazmir’s recent performances;  He’s interesting,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “There’s not a lot of effort, and the ball is coming out really nice. That’s a good combination.”`  In two outings so far this spring, the former first-round draft pick has tossed four innings, surrendered two hits, and struck out four without walking a batter.  Devon is the Founder and Executive Director of The GM's Perspective.
