Kazmir ejected in second inning after arguing with umpire

CLEVELAND -- Scott Kazmir's return to Cleveland was a short one as he was ejected during the second inning of Saturday's game. The Oakland left-hander was tossed after issuing a walk to Jesus Aguilar with one out in the second. Before getting ejected, Kazmir appeared to say to home-plate umpire Jerry Layne "why are you messing with me?" At that point, Layne tossed...

Kazmir's near flawless A's debut reminds Indians what they're missing

OAKLAND -- Scott Kazmir still has plenty of friends in the Indians' clubhouse. They just wish Kazmir didn't have success against him. After going six-plus innings in only six of his 29 starts with the Tribe last year, Kazmir pitched 7 1/3 inning of scoreless ball in his Oakland debut as the Athletics defeated the Indians 6-1 in the afternoon portion of Wednesday's day...

The Los Angeles Angels Should Consider A Scott Kazmir Reunion

The Los Angeles Angels have been busy early this offseason. They addressed their need for a third baseman by acquiring David Freese, and signed reliever Joe Smith to a three-year deal worth $15.75MM. However their biggest need still remains starting pitching. Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson and Garrett Richards are all locked in as starters for next season, leaving two slots open. The...

The Scott Kazmir decision looms large for Indians

In just over 48 hours, we’ll know. The Cleveland Indians have until 5 p.m. Monday to extend a qualifying offer over to left-handed comeback player Scott Kazmir. That offer is a tricky situation. It would either make the soon-to-be 30-year-old Kazmir an Indian in 2014 at $14.1 million or, should he chose to decline the offer, would give the team yet another draft pick next June...

Trend Spotting: The case for retaining Scott Kazmir

The Indians have a plethora of offseason decisions which are of seemingly equal importance, each one creating specific options or paths. The offseason is a lesson in path dependency, each decision opening and closing different doors.  This means that there very well may be a path that I prefer which no one could conceive of before the Winter Meetings begin. Perhaps, the last paragraph...

WFNY Stats & Info: Scott Kazmir’s stellar comeback season

In terms of Scott Kazmir’s history with the Cleveland Indians, I’ve oddly been the lead historian. Back on Nov. 23, I shared that the Indians were one of several teams seen scouting the 29-year-old. And on Dec. 21, I reported on his new minor league deal with the Tribe. Then, I was there again with the post on April 20 as he was set to make his Indians debut. Since then, Kazmir...

Kazmir, Indians try to keep Wild Card hopes alive

Eight days of rest didn't do Scott Kazmir much good in his last outing. The Cleveland Indians hope he's better with six days in between starts as they continue their playoff push against the visiting Minnesota Twins on Sunday. Chasing their first postseason berth since 2007, the Indians (70-59) trail Oakland by 2 12 games for the AL's second wild-card spot. "If you...

Orbiting Cleveland: What's ahead for Scott Kazmir?

Some things just don’t mix well, and that’s been the case when it comes to the Cleveland Indians and minor league signings these past few years. Regardless of circumstances, it seems like the Indians always find themselves doing some heavy bargain shopping in the months that precede the start of Spring Training. At times, these minor moves have paid off. For reference, look no...
