SCOTT KAZMIR RUMORS & GOSSIP

Melvin on Kazmir’s Rant: ‘He’s Speaking From The Heart’

A day after Scott Kazmir sounded off on his Oakland Athletics teammates, manager Bob Melvin weighed in with his take on the left-hander’s comments. “Well, look, Kaz is an emotional guy. After games a lot of times emotions run high. Sometimes you say some things whether or not you regret them later or not, but he’s speaking from the heart. Following the club’s 6-3 loss on...

Kazmir ejected in second inning after arguing with umpire

CLEVELAND -- Scott Kazmir's return to Cleveland was a short one as he was ejected during the second inning of Saturday's game.

Kazmir's near flawless A's debut reminds Indians what they're missing

OAKLAND -- Scott Kazmir still has plenty of friends in the Indians' clubhouse. They just wish Kazmir didn't have success against him.

The Scott Kazmir decision looms large for Indians

In just over 48 hours, we’ll know. The Cleveland Indians have until 5 p.m. Monday to extend a qualifying offer over to left-handed comeback player Scott Kazmir. That offer is a tricky situation. It would either make the soon-to-be 30-year-old Kazmir an Indian in 2014 at $14.1 million or, should he chose to decline the offer, would give the team yet another draft pick next June...

WFNY Stats & Info: Scott Kazmir’s stellar comeback season

In terms of Scott Kazmir’s history with the Cleveland Indians, I’ve oddly been the lead historian. Back on Nov. 23, I shared that the Indians were one of several teams seen scouting the 29-year-old. And on Dec. 21, I reported on his new minor league deal with the Tribe. Then, I was there again with the post on April 20 as he was set to make his Indians debut. Since then, Kazmir...
