SCOTT KAZMIR NEWS

Ricky Romero's release is only the beginning of things to come

Ricky Romero's release as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays is not the end, but only the beginning. I look at it this way. If Scott Kazmir, who was in dire straits and left for dead by the baseball world, can come back and again be considered one of the most effective left-handed pitchers in the game. Romero, who's had a couple rocky years, is in no way done with the game of baseball...

Kazmir throws 7 scoreless innings in A's 5-4 loss to Astros

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Scott Kazmir did everything he could to help the Oakland Athletics except swing the bat. Considering the A's recent offensive struggles, maybe an at-bat would have helped. Kazmir threw seven scoreless innings, but Houston starter Dallas Keuchel did him one better, going nine without giving up a run. Robbie Grossman singled in two runs in the 11th, and the Astros...

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Apr 24

Felix Hernandez leads the way in a very favorable start against the Minnesota Twins. At the bottom is a Rangers reliever who’s not accustomed to starting games. Jon Lester at Cincinnati will be a big test, especially if Reds manager Bryan Price let’s Billy Hamilton play (which he didn’t in their matchup earlier this season). For you streamers, beware Scott Kazmir against...

Tensions High as Royals Come From Behind to Take Series

In the season's first 10 games, Royals players were hit by a whopping 14 pitches. None of those pitchers were ejected, including Oakland's Scott Kazmir, who spiked a fastball right to the foot of Lorenzo Cain in the first inning Sunday. The benches were warned, and home plate umpire Greg Gibson quickly ejected both Royals manager Ned Yost and pitching coach Greg Eiland. People...

Bullpen Torched as Oakland Athletics Lose 2 of 3 in Heated Series

It got chippy at Kauffman Stadium. The Oakland Athletics dropped two of three in the club’s weekend set with the Kansas City Royals, as the bullpen continues to cough up late leads. But the story of the weekend was the series of bench clearing incidents and hit by pitches all sparked by a single slide. In Game 1 of on Friday night, Brett Lawrie got it started with a late and aggressive...

WATCH: Royals-A's game filled with more ejections

The Kansas City Royals have a problem with the Oakland Athletics, and one beanball from Yordano Ventura to Brett Lawrie wasn’t going to fix that. In the first inning of Sunday’s game at Kauffman Stadium, Scott Kazmir plunked Lorenzo Cain (it looked accidental since if you’re going to throw at someone, you don’t throw at their feet, but whatever). Home plate umpire Greg...

Athletics-Astros Preview

Scott Kazmir appeared to be in midseason form with a dazzling debut last week. The Oakland Athletics could surely use another solid performance as they try to get back on track in the opener of a 10-game road trip against the Houston Astros on Monday night.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Apr 9

I re-learned a very valuable lesson yesterday that I’d frankly just forgotten to account for — hitting is hard when it’s cold. On paper the Red Sox looked great against Aaron Harang, but on a cold, windy, rainy/misty day, Harang dominated them. My lineup tanked, only salvaging some semblance of respectability thanks to Scott Kazmir. Wednesday’s Official Lineup (click to...

Fantasy Roundup: Carrasco, Kazmir K 10

Entering this season, few pitchers were as hyped as Carlos Carrasco. His stuff had never been in question — his four-seamer has some heat and his slider is among the best in the league — but for one reason or another it took Carrasco until the 2014 season to put it all together. One start into the 2015 season, it looks like he’s kept it together. Carrasco pitched 6.1 innings...

The Athletics, The Phillies, And Short Pitchers

If you watch the Athletics, you may have noticed something about their pitching staffs over the last few years. They’re… shorter than average. Sonny Gray, Scott Kazmir, and Jarrod Parker are all six foot one or shorter, and none of the A’s pitchers are taller than six foot six. Look across the country at the […]
