|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/1/15) Athletics starter Scott Kazmir gave up three runs on six hits and struck out six in six innings for a no-decision on Friday against the Rangers.|

A's unable to cash in on seven scoreless innings from Scott Kazmir
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) Athletics starting pitcher Scott Kazmir tossed seven scoreless innings Friday against the Astros. However, he did not factor into the decision, as the game went to extra innings.
Kazmir was involved in quite the pitcher's duel with Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel. While Kazmir went seven scoreless innings, Keuchel threw nine scoreless innings. Kazmir allowed five hits and three walks, while striking out seven.
The veteran left-hander lowered his ERA from 1.33 to 0.99. His next scheduled start is for Thursday against the Angels.
Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir allows two runs Sunday, earns ND
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir allowed two runs on six hits in 7 1/3 innings of work in Oakland's 4-2 loss to the Royals Sunday.
Kazmir worked efficiently through his first four inning, allowing just two hits. But he ran into trouble in the fifth when he allowed a leadoff double to Omar Infante and Christian Colon to reach on an infield single. Jarrod Dyson then grounded out to shortstop, allowing a run to score.
Kazmir walked Paulo Orlando to leadoff the eighth before recording one out and being pulled after 103 pitches, 73 for strikes. Kazmir, 2-0 on the yer, now boasts a 1.33 ERA and will look for win No. 3 Friday against the Astros.
A's pitcher Scott Kazmir earns second win of season Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir gave up one run over six innings of work to earn a win over the Astros on Monday.
Kazmir struck out eight batters and walked three. His lone blemish was giving up a solo home run to Jose Altuve. He is now 2-0 on the season.
After the game, Kazmir said he experienced minor cramping in his calf during the fourth inning, but he was to get through it, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
His next start will likely be Sunday at Kansas City.
A's SP Scott Kazmir having no issues with back Thursday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Athletics starting pitcher Scott Kazmir said he felt fine Thursday after dealing with a minor bout of back stiffness during his season debut Wednesday against the Indians, per the San Francisco Chronicle. Kazmir said some stretching Wednesday night did the trick.
The left-hander didn't seem bothered by the back issue Wednesday, as he allowed one hit and struck out 10 over seven scoreless innings.
|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.
