|Scott Kazmir gives away multiple leads in no-decision|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/20/13) Indians starting pitcher Scott Kazmir failed to pitch at least four innings for the second time in six starts Monday against the Mariners. Kazmir was tagged for five runs on seven hits and two walks in three-plus innings.
Kazmir, who struck out two, got off to a rocky start as Seattle scored twice in the first inning. Cleveland surged to a 4-2 lead in the second inning, but it was short lived as Kazmir allowed Seattle to tie the game in the third inning. Cleveland took another lead in the bottom of the inning only for Kazmir to let Seattle tie it up again in the top of the fourth.
The left-hander has allowed at least four runs in three of his six starts. His ERA climbed from 5.33 to 6.35 Monday. His next scheduled start is for Saturday at Boston.

(5/14/13) Indians pitcher Scott Kazmir, who struck out 10 his last time out, took a step back as he served up a pair of homers and suffered his second loss of the season Tuesday night against the Phillies.
Kazmir (2-2), who made his fifth start of the season, surrendered a solo home run to Kevin Frandsen in the first and another solo shot to Domonic Brown in the sixth. The left-hander gave up four runs and six hits over five innings of work. He struck out three and walked two in a 6-2 defeat.
Kazmir was 2-0 and had allowed just three earned runs in 12 innings in his last two starts before Tuesday's loss. He saw his ERA rise from 4.87 to 5.33.
The 29-year-old is scheduled to start Monday at home against Seattle. He is 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA at Progressive Field.
|Scott Kazmir looking for repeat performance|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/13) Indians pitcher Scott Kazmir is looking to build on his phenomenal 10 strikeout performance agaisnt Oakland.
Kazmir will get the nod against the Phillies Tuesday. He's already one of the most added players in Fantasy leagues, but could still raise his ownership rates with a strong performance Tuesday. Kazmir's velocity was strong in his last start, and that will be something to watch this time around. He'll go up against Jonathan Pettibone.
|Putting Scott Kazmir in context|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/10/13) By now, we've hammered home the point that Scott Kazmir's velocity is close to what it was during his golden years with what was then known as the Devil Rays, so I won't continue to harp on that aspect of his performance Thursday.
One way this Kazmir deviates from that Kazmir, though, is his walk rate. During his last two starts -- which were his best, I might add -- he walked one. The old Kazmir, good as he was, often struggled with command, so his innings and WHIP suffered.
Could this Kazmir be even better than old one? It's too early to make that leap. But clearly, I'm willing to take a chance on him, moving him up to 72 in my starting pitcher rankings.
|Scott Kazmir relevant again?|
|by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com|
(5/10/13) As Chris Towers pointed out in a previous update, Indians pitcher Scott Kazmir hadn’t thrown for double-digit strikeouts like he did Thursday since August 26, 2009.
His outstanding performance against Oakland got the attention of Fantasy owners and analysts, making him the most viewed player heading into Week 7. Scott White broke down Kazmir’s average velocity on Friday’s broadcast of Fantasy Baseball Today and said he is encouraged by the results.
