|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/12/14) Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir gave up just one hit and one walk in four innings while striking out three in his team's 3-1 loss to the Royals Wednesday.
Kazmir pitched three scoreless innings in his spring debut Friday and followed it up with another impressive performance in Wednesday's loss. He's spending his first season in Oakland after going 10-9 with a 4.04 ERA and 162:47 K:BB ratio in 158 innings with the Indians last season.

(3/7/14) Left-hander Scott Kazmir provided encouragement in his debut with the Athletics on Friday. He pitched three shutout innings against Arizona, giving up two hits and striking out two while walking none.

(3/2/14) Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir will make his Cactus League debut against the Dodgers at home on Friday, MLB.com reports. Kazmir pitched in a simulated game on Sunday, which left manager Bob Melvin "blown away" by the effectiveness of his changeup, according to the Bay Area News Group.
Kazmir signed a two-year deal in the offseason, after posting a 10-9 record and 4.04 ERA in 29 starts, while notching 162 strikeouts in 158 innings in 2013 with the Indians.

|Scott Kazmir agrees to deal with Athletics |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(12/2/13) CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports that the Athletics agreed with free agent starting pitcher Scott Kazmir on a two-year deal Monday. According to ESPN.com, Kazmir's contract will be worth $22 million.
Kazmir enjoyed a comeback season with the Indians in 2013, posting a 10-9 record and 4.04 ERA in 29 starts, while notching 162 strikeouts in 158 innings.
|Though he missed out on winning the American League Comeback Player of the Year (which went to Mariano Rivera), Scott Kazmir had a comeback story that is hard to top. After a four-year run as a staple in the Rays' rotation, Kazmir declined precipitously in 2009 and 2010, and by 2012, he was pitching in the independent Atlantic League. The Indians took a chance on Kazmir, signing him to a minor league deal in December 2012. Kazmir got off to a slow start, posting a 5.89 ERA through his first 11 starts, but as his average fastball velocity rose into the mid-90s, his level of success rose accordingly. From June 21 on, he compiled a 3.06 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 18 starts. That stretch earned Kazmir a two-year, $22 million deal with the Athletics, and he'll be counted on to be a key part of an already-strong rotation. Owners may shy away from Kazmir due to his history of injury and wildness, as well as his mediocre 2013 full-season stats (4.04 ERA, 1.32 WHIP), so there may be no need to target him before the late rounds. If he can stay healthy, Kazmir could produce like a solid middle-of-the-rotation option, so he could wind up being one of this year's top value picks.
