Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir goes five scoreless Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir posted another dominant performance Saturday, going 5 1/3 scoreless innings with four strikeouts and just two hits allowed against the White Sox.

Kazmir lowered his ERA to 0.75 with just one start left before the season begins.

"Every pitch felt like I had good feel with it," Kazmir said to Bay Area News Group. "I was able to lock everything down. My changeup was the pitch today.I could get it to either corner. And if it started out down the middle it would wind up in the dirt."

Manager Bob Melvin continues to gush over Kazmir's performances.

"Everything was working, side to side," Melvin said. "He had cadence and rhythm. We wanted to get him to 80 pitches, and we did."

Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir strikes out six in outing Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir threw four shutout innings Tuesday and tossed six strikeouts against the Padres. Despite not feeling very confident in his fastball, Kazmir was happy with his pitch location, reports MLB.com.

"I was able to mix all my pitches in, and everything felt great," Kazmir said. "My fastball wasn't as accurate as I wanted. It seemed like I was behind and had to come back with secondary pitches. But all in all, everything went well. I'll take that line all day long."

"At this point in time, to have that kind of command, I was a little surprised," A's manager Bob Melvin said.

Athletics tab Sonny Gray for Opening Day start
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Monday that Sonny Gray would start the team's regular-season opener April 6 against the Rangers, MLB.com reports.

Gray gets the call after going 14-10 with a 3.08 ERA and 183:74 K:BB ratio in 219 innings in 2014, his first full season in the rotation.

Melvin also indicated that Scott Kazmir would start either the second or third game of the season, but that the rest of the rotation has yet to be lined up. He did leave open the possibility of Barry Zito making the rotation, saying, "I don't want to exclude him," the Bay Area News Group reports.

Scott Kazmir comes all the way back to top of Athletics' rotation
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Scott Kazmir was out of baseball in 2011, but his comeback, now in year three, couldn't be going better. 

Athletics manager Bob Melvin called Kazmir a "resurrection" as the lefthander occupies the "co-ace" spot at the top of the A's rotation, along with Sonny Gray. 

A former All Star, arm trouble wiped out Kazmir's dominating fastball, but he's learned to pitch without blowing batters away. 

"With everything I've gone through, I have a better idea what I'm doing -- and more pitches in my repertoire," he told MLB.com's Lyle Spencer

"I have so much more control of my fastball," he said. "I used to throw as hard as I could. Now I can add and subtract, move it around. I have so much more direction. It's night and day."

A's P Kazmir gives up three hits, one earned run in win over Mariners
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir surrendered three hits and accounted for one earned run in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Mariners. 

Kazmir struck out four batters and walked two while pitching 2 2/3 innings, facing 13 batters in all. Actor Will Ferrell began Kazmir's start at shortstop.

"He's pretty routine-oriented, and there was obviously a distraction, but he threw the ball well," manager Bob Melvin after the outing, per MLB.com. "I thought he had really good stuff."

Catcher Josh Phegley indicated that Kazmir was working on commanding his fastball.

"It's early. He's just trying to establish that fastball command," Phegley said. "We went back and forth [with] fastballs both sides, worked in his cutter, his curveball and his changeup. He didn't seem too far off from being season-ready. He looked good, and I think he was happy with the results and how he felt. He just wants to be a little sharper, and that's why we're here."
