    • Kazmir gave up five runs over 3.2 innings in Saturday's spring training loss to Seattle. He has a 9.35 ERA this spring and looks set to begin the season at Triple-A, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The 36-year-old lefty hasn't appeared in the majors since 2016 and has been out of affiliated ball entirely the past two seasons, so he'll likely need to get his career back on track in Triple-A for a few weeks before the Giants consider calling him up.

    • Kazmir signed with the Giants as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Buster Olney of ESPN reports. Kazmir's last big-league pitch came back in 2016, when he posted a 4.56 ERA in 26 starts for the Dodgers. His fastball touched 93 mph in a recent bullpen session, above where it sat for the bulk of his career, which evidently convinced the Giants to take a chance on the 37-year-old lefty. The team probably doesn't anticipate him becoming a key piece of the pitching staff, but there's a chance he could at least win a bullpen role.

    • Kazmir will throw for multiple teams this week as he pursues a big-league comeback, Buster Olney of ESPN reports. The 36-year-old lefty hasn't appeared in the majors since 2016 and has been out of affiliated ball entirely the past two seasons. Per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, Kazmir said in January that his fastball clocked at just over 90 miles per hour during his workouts, which is roughly on par with the velocity he sported during his most recent MLB action. If Kazmir proves he still has something left in the tank during his throwing sessions, he could receive a minor-league deal from an organization.

    • Kazmir (arm) was released by the Braves on Saturday. How quickly things can change in Major League Baseball. Earlier Saturday, Kazmir was seen as the likely fifth starter for the Braves to begin 2018, but he left his Grapefruit League start with arm fatigue and it turns out that issue will end his bid for a rotation spot along with his tenure with Atlanta. This effectively cements Anibal Sanchez into the rotation, while Kazmir's future in the big leagues appears murky.

    • Kazmir left Saturday's game with arm fatigue, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The Braves' medical staff will give Kazmir a long look-over before the team decides on a course of action. This comes at a poor time for Kazmir, as he seemed in line to open the year in Atlanta's rotation with Luiz Gohara (ankle) sidelined. Now it seems likely that Anibal Sanchez will get the nod the first time the Braves need a fifth starter. Kazmir missed all of last season with a hip injury.
