    Player Outlook

    Scott Kazmir's second season with the Athletics went even better than the first, but the free-agent-to-be was dealt to the Astros for their late-season run. Unfortunately for the Astros, Kazmir's performance eroded late in the season, just as it had the year before. In 13 starts with Houston, the lefty went 2-6 with a 4.17 ERA, as his velocity and strikeout rate dipped. Kazmir will try to rebound with the Dodgers in 2016, and given his history of injuries and late-season struggles, he is best left until the late rounds of standard mixed league drafts.

    • Dodgers' Scott Kazmir: Signs with Dodgers
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kazmir signed a three-year contract with the Dodgers on Wednesday. With the departure of Zack Greinke during the offseason, the Dodgers have made a move to help fill the void by adding Kazmir. The veteran left-hander posted a 3.10 ERA with Oakland and Houston in 2015 and helped guide the Astros to the post season. Kazmir adds another talented left-handed arm to the Dodgers' rotation that already features the likes of Clayton Kershaw, Alex Wood, and Brett Anderson.

    • Astros starter Scott Kazmir allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four over 5 1/3 innings against the Royals on Friday in Game 2 of the ALDS. He did not factor in the decision in the Astros' 5-4 loss. The lefty gave the Astros about as good a performance as they could have expected after he struggled to a 6.52 ERA in six September starts. It wasn't quite good enough, however, as the bullpen allowed a pair of runs, with Will Harris giving up the go-ahead RBI in the seventh. Kazmir would be an option to start Game 5 on normal rest Wednesday, if the series gets that far.

    • Astros choose Scott Kazmir to start Game 2 of ALDS
      By RotoWire Staff

      Astros starting pitcher Scott Kazmir will start Game 2 of the ALDS against the Royals on Friday, the Houston Chronicle reports. The left-hander struggled mightily down the stretch for Houston, posting a 6.52 ERA and 18:11 K:BB in 29 September innings. Kazmir will oppose Johnny Cueto, who also had a rough go of it late in the regular season.

    • Astros starting pitcher Scott Kazmir struggled yet again Wednesday, allowing six runs (four earned) on seven hits and two walks in a no-decision against the Mariners. He struck out three across 4 1/3 innings. Regression is hitting the lefty hard right now, as his last three starts have been terrible. In that span, he has failed to pitch five innings and has allowed 15 runs on 22 hits across 11 2/3 innings. The strikeouts have been lacking as well, whiffing no more than five batters in his last six starts. The ERA has been on a steady rise since his move to Houston as well.

    • Astros starter Scott Kazmir was roughed up for six runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out just one over 3 2/3 innings in a critical loss to Texas on Friday night. After tossing 14 2/3 scoreless innings in his first two starts in Houston, Kazmir has lost his way, going 1-6 with a 4.97 ERA and 1.53 WHIP over his past 10 outings. He seems to be missing the spacious confines of Oakland's O.co Coliseum. After serving up just .057 HR/9 in 18 starts with the Athletics to start the year, Kazmir has more than doubled the pace to 1.43 HR/9 in 12 starts as an Astro. He pitched so well to start the season that his 2015 stats depict him as a no-brainer to keep in your rotation. Recent history tells another story.
