Hot Stove: Orioles, Royals, A's interested in free-agent Scott Kazmir

Ex-A's star Scott Kazmir is said to have multiple three-year offers, probably in the $12-13-million range, with the A's, Royals and Orioles among interested teams (plus the Dodgers, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports).

Kazmir is said to be looking for a four-year deal. 

The Royals also have their eyes set on Kazmir in addition to lefty starter Wei-Yin Chen and Yovani Gallardo. The Royals like all three but may make a push for Chen.

Quite likely, Kazmir will jump at the first reasonable four-year offer he gets. 

Kazmir went 7-11 with a 3.10 ERA over 31 starts last season for the Royals. He posted a 1.21 WHIP with 155 strikeouts over 183 innings.
