Astros' Scott Kazmir shines in first start with new team Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/24/15) Making his first start with his new club, Astros left-hander Scott Kazmir was excellent on Friday. Kazmir blanked the Royals over seven scoreless innings allowing just three hits and a walk. He struck out three and threw 60 of his 91 pitches for strikes.
Kazmir (6-5) lowered his ERA to 2.24 with the strong outing. He retired the final nine batters he faced, and was pretty much in control all evening.
The veteran southpaw owns a sterling 1.11 ERA over his last 11 starts.

|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/18/15) As expected, the Athletics turned to pitcher Scott Kazmir to start Saturday's game against the Twins, the team announced.

Athletics SP Scott Kazmir will make start after All-Star break
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/12/15) Athletics starting pitcher Scott Kazmir will make the second start in the team's rotation after the All-Star break, per SFgate.com.
Kazmir has been out with a triceps injury
|2014 summary: The Athletics' gamble to sign Scott Kazmir to a two-year deal paid off, as the lefty stayed healthy all season, providing 32 starts. Kazmir lost some velocity from his 2013 comeback season with the Indians, but he was highly effective nonetheless. With a pedestrian 7.7 K/9 ratio, Kazmir missed out on making the top 30 starters in Rotisserie value, but a 15-9 record along with 20 quality starts and pair of complete games helped him to hold down the 25th spot in Fantasy point rankings.|
Playing time status: With Jon Lester and Jeff Samardzija having departed, Kazmir may have to pick up the slack by providing the Athletics with some additional innings.
2015 outlook: After receiving 4.8 runs of support per nine innings last season, Kazmir could have trouble matching his total of 15 wins, but otherwise, he should be able to maintain his value. He will likely fall short of the top 30 rankings for starting pitchers, but maybe not by that much. Kazmir should return enough value to deserve a mid-round pick in standard mixed leagues.
