      Astros SP Scott Kazmir gets no decision in Game 2 of ALDS

      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 SP Scott Kazmir's struggles continue Wednesday

      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 SP Scott Kazmir clobbered again Friday against Rangers

      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 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.

      Astros SP Scott Kazmir has rough outing Saturday vs. A's

      Astros starter Scott Kazmir struggled on Friday, as he allowed three runs on five hits and three walks across 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the A's. Kazmir simply didn't have it on Saturday, as it took him 83 pitches to get 11 outs. As the season has gone on, the ERA has been steadily rising. It's a natural regression for a pitcher who had an absurd start to the season and fantasy owners can't complain about a 2.73 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. His 3.56 FIP and career-high 80 percent strand rate would indicate he has even more regression coming, but luckily he only has a couple of starts left. Kazmir's next start will be on Thursday against the scorching-hot Rangers.

      Astros SP Scott Kazmir keeps Dodgers in-check on Saturday

      Astros left-hander Scott Kazmir was solid in his start against the Dodgers on Saturday. Kazmir limited the Dodgers to one run on six hits over six strong innings. He walked one and struck out eight, en route to the 3-1 win. Kazmir (7-8, 2.39 ERA) followed up Mike Fiers' no-hitter from Friday with a strong performance of his own. The only run he allowed came in his final inning of work, as he kept the Dodgers off the board for the first five innings. This was a good bounceback effort for Kazmir, who allowed six runs over 5 1/3 innings in his previous start. The veteran southpaw is 2-3 with a 2.41 ERA in six starts as a member of the Astros.
