Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir (triceps) left his outing Sunday, April 13, due to triceps tightness. The injury is considered minor, and it is not expected to prohibit him from making his next scheduled start Saturday, April 19, against the Houston Astros.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners might want to play it safe and reserve Kazmir, even with a juicy matchup against Houston, as he had a drop in velocity in his outing Sunday and that makes a pitcher who doesn't throw all that fast to begin with very hittable.
