New Dodgers pitcher Kazmir returns to scene of career demise

LOS ANGELES (AP) After revitalizing his career over the last three years, Scott Kazmir is ready to return to the scene of its demise in Southern California. The 31-year-old left-hander struggled through three tough years with the Los Angeles Angels before falling out of the majors. It took him two years to get back to the big leagues and after stints with Cleveland, Oakland and...

Scott Kazmir, the Dodgers, and Health

The real nice thing about having Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke in the same starting rotation, aside from all the wins, is that they allow a team to lose two key starters for the season — Hyun-Jin Ryu to a shoulder injury suffered in spring training and a Brandon McCarthy to Tommy John Surgery after just four starts — without it crippling the team. The Dodgers would’ve preferred...

Additions of Scott Kazmir, Kenta Maeda improve Dodgers rotation

The Dodgers rotation excelled in 2015. Led by Clayton Kershaw (2011, 2013, 2014 Cy Young winner) and Zack Greinke (2015 Cy Young runner-up), the club featured the best one-two punch in the game. Opposing clubs quivered at the thought of facing the duo in back-to-back games. Brett Anderson, who made a total of 32 starts since the start of 2011, surprisingly made 31 starts (including...

Dodgers Give Iwakuma Money to Scott Kazmir

It seemed for a time like Scott Kazmir wanted to get himself signed before Christmas. That didn’t happen, but he’ll settle for getting signed before New Year’s — for three years, and $48 million, with the Dodgers being his newest employer. Kazmir joins what could be an all-left-handed starting rotation, not even counting the left-handed Julio Urias. No one would ever suggest...

Scott Kazmir could end up being a bargain if the Dodgers sign him

It’s a bit surprising Scott Kazmir hasn’t signed with a team yet, considering David Price, Zack Greinke and Johnny Cueto all signed relatively quickly this winter. And he could end up being one of the biggest bargains of the offseason. Kazmir, 32 next month, was a once can’t-miss prospect who infamously traded to Tampa from the Mets for Victor Zambrano in a move that is still...

The New Stage of Scott Kazmir

You want to know how the sausage is made? It’s the holiday season, which means there’s not a lot going on. Sure, there can be moves like the Mike Leake signing, but the league overall is about to mostly shut down for a short while. But we’re supposed to write anyway, so I got to thinking and I decided to try to write something about Scott Kazmir. The only question was, what...

Athletics trade Scott Kazmir to Astros

By Vincent Frank Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane isn’t afraid to make some bold moves. In some cases, these moves have included sending a star player to a division rival. That’s exactly what happened on Thursday. Seemingly out of contention in the American League West, the A’s have traded starting pitcher Scott Kazmir to the Houston Astros for two minor league...
