Astros | Scott Kazmir rebounds

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 19:24:21 -0700

Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir allowed one run on six hits and struck out eight over six innings in a win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) had allowed six runs in his previous start, but he has only allowed four combined runs in his other five starts since joining the Astros. He is a safe option at FantasyScore against most opponents.

Astros | Scott Kazmir strong in loss

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 04:58:47 -0700

Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir lowered his AL-best ERA from 2.10 to 2.08 as he struck out five in 5 2/3 innings of work Wednesday, Aug. 5. Kazmir lost his start to the Texas Rangers, 4-3, but he gave up just one earned run.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) is bound to have a rough game once in a while. Chalk this one up to bad luck and keep him in your FantasyScore lineup.

Astros | Scott Kazmir sparkling in July

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 09:54:26 -0700

Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir turned in another great performance in his win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, July 30, and he lowered his July ERA to an MLB-best 0.26. He tossed seven shutout innings in his debut with the Astros last week and became the first pitcher in Astros history to throw seven or more shutout innings in his first two games since 1965.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Kazmir ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) leaves an excellent pitching environment in Oakland for Houston, it hasn't phased him yet, and his fantasy value is on the rise pitching for a contending team. He'll remain a strong FantasyScore pitching option for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) picked up where he left off in Oakland, and it looks like he will continue to be a dependable option at FantasyScore in his new home.

Astros | Scott Kazmir debuting Friday

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 14:28:11 -0700

Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir will make his team debut against the Kansas City Royals Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) has been lights out over his past six starts with a 1.63 ERA and 0.88 WHIP. Still, the Royals are a tough draw, so it is far from a slam-dunk matchup. FantasyScore players can consider Kazmir as a No. 2 starter Friday, but with 15 games on the schedule, you'll likely be able to find a more favorable matchup.

Astros | Scott Kazmir headed to Houston

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 10:35:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir was acquired by the Houston Astros in exchange for C Jacob Nottingham and P Daniel Mengden.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) won't be starting today so avoid him on FantasyScore. His value stays around the same with the move to Houston, but moves to a more hitter-friendly park.

Athletics | Scott Kazmir just misses shutout

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 06:45:14 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir came within two outs of his first shutout in more than nine years Saturday, July 18, against the Minnesota Twins. Kazmir allowed one run and five hits over 8 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) lowered his ERA to 2.38, although his xFIP remains at 3.51. Fantasy owners should be hoping that Kazmir gets traded to a team where he'll have a higher win probability before the MLB's trade deadline.

Athletics | Scott Kazmir all good

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 15:19:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir (triceps) threw a 50-pitch bullpen session Saturday, July 11, and he checked out fine. The session was more extensive than normal, and he's not worried about the triceps cramps that ended his last start early. It's unknown where Kazmir will slot into the rotation after the All-Star break, but he should be fine.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) is a midrange starter on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Scott Kazmir playing catch

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 09:47:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir (triceps) was feeling good enough to play catch in the outfield Thursday, July 9, a day after leaving his start early with a tight left triceps Wednesday, July 8. Kazmir will have a minimum of eight days of rest before his next start with the All-Star break next week. The A's haven't set up their rotation to begin the second half, but they will take Kazmir's injury into consideration.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) will likely have at least eight days off before his next start, and probably more. There will be a considerable amount of risk surrounding him in his next start because of the injury and long layoff.

Athletics | Scott Kazmir wanted to continue

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 21:08:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir (triceps) wanted to remain in the game Wednesday, July 8, against the New York Yankees, but he was lifted due to triceps tightness. He said after the game he feels if his next start was in five days, he would make it.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir ($7,000; or 14.0% of cap) will have the All-Star break to get himself right and pump up his trade appeal. FantasyScore players still should wait to see him pitch in a real game before trusting him again.
