SCOTT KAZMIR RUMORS & GOSSIP

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Aug 19

After a very limited Monday, there are plenty of opportunities to spot start on Tuesday. Let’s look at the rankings: Scott Kazmir takes the top spot for two reasons: He’ll face the Mets, who are 29th in wOBA over the last two weeks (.268) and he’ll face Dillon Gee, who Steamer doesn’t like. That 50/20 W%/L% split seems a bit drastic to me, but I think Kazmir probably has...

Athletics Injury Update: Scott Kazmir, Yoenis Cespedes

The Oakland Athletics suffered a stunning defeat last night as the Detroit Tigers' Rajai Davis blasted a walk-off grand slam in the ninth inning against closer Sean Doolittle, who has now blown two consecutive saves after going 24 appearances without giving up an earned run.

DraftKings – Drape me in Kazmir

Just as George wants to be draped in velvet, I want to be draped in Kazmir. Speaking of fabric names, when are we going to get a pitcher with a name like Velvet? Velour? Tweed? Like the very expensive, warm, comfortable fabric, Scott Kazmir ain't coming to you cheap today, $8,400 to be exact. This is no bargain basket blue light special. This is spending your money and getting...

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...

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...
