Dodgers | Scott Kazmir records sixth win

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 15:38:13 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir improved his record to 6-3 by defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates in his start Monday, June 27. The left-hander labored through five innings, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks. He also registered four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir has now won four straight decisions, though he hasn't exactly been doing it in the prettiest fashion, with several unspectacular outings similar to this one over that stretch. Even so, he can still be a reliable, steady arm for deep leagues, especially while pitching for a playoff contender. He's also been a nice source for K's, with 91 strikeouts in 88 2/3 total innings.

Dodgers | Scott Kazmir posts quality start

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 23:43:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir allowed two earned runs, eight hits and a walk with four strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday, June 21, against the Washington Nationals. He threw 65 of his 97 pitches for strikes in the quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir recorded his first quality start in four outings dating back to May 31. With a 4.52 ERA and 1.30 WHIP, he is mainly an NL-only fantasy option only worth using in deeper mixed formats.

Dodgers | Scott Kazmir expects to start Saturday

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 16:16:54 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir (calf) is expecting to make his next scheduled start Saturday, June 11, after he dealt with a leg cramp in his last start.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir allowed three earned runs in five innings to the Braves in his last start, but he had just one earned run allowed in his previous two starts and has been an effective matchup play for those in deeper leagues in 2016. Kazmir will face the Giants Saturday, and San Fran leads the NL with 84 runs scored against lefties and a .754 OPS. That means the lefty will come with plenty of risk this weekend.

Dodgers | Scott Kazmir exits early

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 20:05:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir (quadriceps) exited his start against the Atlanta Braves early because of tightness in his left quadriceps Sunday, June 5. He allowed three runs on seven hits while walking one and striking out five over five innings and earned the win.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir has been pitching well of late, and assuming the injury doesn't turn out to be serious, he has some upside in deeper mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Scott Kazmir brilliant in no-decision

Tue, 31 May 2016 22:46:41 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir earned a no-decision in his start Tuesday, May 31, opposite the Chicago Cubs, but certainly deserved better based on his performance. He recorded six shutout innings, yielding only one hit and one walk. He also struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir was out to a sluggish start in his first year with the Dodgers, but now he's finally starting to return to form, as he's been sensational in his last two starts. In fact, Kazmir has allowed just a single run in 12 innings over that span, while accumulating 19 strikeouts as well. Considering the team he plays for, the veteran southpaw could start piling up wins if he can sustain his smooth pitching as of late.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler back in lineup

Tue, 31 May 2016 12:49:45 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (heel) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31, against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir. Fowler will bat leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like the injury wasn't a serious one and Fowler is back to his usual leadoff spot atop the lineup. Adjust your rosters accordingly.

Dodgers | Scott Kazmir fans a dozen

Wed, 25 May 2016 22:50:38 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir struck out a dozen hitters in the team's 3-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday, May 25. His final line: six innings, four hits, one run, two walks and 12 strikeouts. The 12 K's were Kazmir's highest total since September 2013.

Fantasy Tip: It was a nice bounce back for Kazmir, who got roughed up by the light-hitting Padres in his last outing. That's been par for the course this year as the southpaw has been up and down from one start to the next. He faces a much sterner test next time in the Cubs and Jason Hammel. We'll see if he can stack success.

Dodgers | Scott Kazmir has strong outing

Sat, 14 May 2016 21:38:48 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir allowed three runs on five hits, struck out seven and walked one in a 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, May 14. Kazmir improved to 3-3.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir will do a good job in leagues where ratio is one of your categories. He has 13 walks and 43 strikeouts so far this year, an over 3-to-1 ratio. His problem is earned run average. Kazmir's ERA was 5.54 entering this game, but outings like this will bring that down a bit. It looks like Kazmir has gotten better in Los Angeles following a disappointing 2015 in Houston. Kazmir's fantasy value is improving, especially with the way he silenced the Cardinal offense.

Rays | Corey Dickerson out Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:15:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays DH Corey Dickerson is not playing Tuesday, May 3, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. DH Brandon Guyer will bat second against Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir.

Fantasy Tip: Because Kazmir is a lefty, Dickerson takes a seat for the Tuesday game. Guyer carries no fantasy value for daily players, so you may want to consider someone else to replace Dickerson.

Dodgers | Scott Kazmir bothered by hand discomfort

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:49:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir (thumb) has felt minor discomfort where the thumb meets his left wrist since the end of the spring, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir, who said he suffered the injury while hitting, was dominant in his first start of the season, but the high-priced free-agent southpaw has surrendered 14 runs in 13 innings since. The discomfort on his throwing hand would certainly help explain his ineffectiveness over that span, although it should be noted he also showed signs of regression last September with the Houston Astros. Owners should keep Kazmir fixed to the bench until he can string together a pair of solid starts.
