Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir strikes out six in losing effort
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir allowed five runs, three earned, on seven hits, in 4 1/3 innings of work in Oakland's 7-3 loss to the White Sox on Sunday.
After allowing one run in the first, Kazmir settled in a bit. But the struggles began in the fifth when he allowed three of the first four hitters to reach safely, leading to a run. Then, after an infield single, Kazmir walked in a run. Then another infield single plated another run.
"I wish I could have been a little more efficient early on and made a couple of plays," Kazmir said to the Daily Herald. "It would have been a totally different ballgame."
Kazmir, now 2-2, struck out six but moved his ERA to 3.08 in 49 2/3 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Friday against the Rays.
Could the Astros make a move for Kazmir, Buchholz or Lohse?
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/15/15) It would be a surprise to most if the Astros become players in the Cole Hamels sweepstakes, considering his annual salary of $24 million is about half of what the Astros' total payrolls sunk to in recent lowly years.
However, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, Scott Kazmir (a Houston native), Clay Buchholz and Kyle Lohse (ties to general manager Jeff Luhnow) are the three pitchers to watch for in Houston, should they become available.
Athletics SP Scott Kazmir receives no-decision Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir pitched well enough to earn a quality start during Monday’s 5-4, 11-inning loss to the Red Sox, but he received a no-decision for his effort.
Kazmir allowed two runs on four hits over six inning of work during Monday’s start. He also walked four batters and struck out three. His ERA now stands at 2.78.
Kazmir has not received a win since his second start of the season, but he has received quality starts in six of his seven starts this season. His next expected start is scheduled for Sunday against the White Sox.
A's P Scott Kazmir alllows 6 runs in loss to Twins
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/6/15) Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir allowed six earned runs during his time on the mound in Wednesday night's 13-0 loss to the Twins.
Kazmir pitched six innings and also gave up seven hits (two of which were home runs) and two walks. He struck out four batters. Kazmir is now 2-1 this season with a 2.75 ERA.
Kazmir's next start is projected for May 11 against the Red Sox.
Athletics starter Scott Kazmir allows three runs in six IP for no-decision
|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.|
Kazmir was touched for solo homers from Kyle Blanks and Prince Fielder.
Kazmir returns to the mound Wednesday in Minnasota.
|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.
