6/30/2014 9:47:00 PM

Hot6/19/2014 12:35:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Scott Kazmir (8-2) faced a struggling Boston Red Sox offense on Thursday and should be an excellent fantasy option.

Hot6/15/2014 10:06:00 AM
Description: Athletics starter Scott Kazmir ran his record to 8-2 with six strong innings against the Yankees Saturday night.
Insight: Kazmir's career looked to be finished following an injury in 2011 and while he had a solid comeback season in 2013 (10-9, 4.04 ERA, 1.32 WHIP) he didn't exactly flash ace potential. In 2014, however, he's recorded a 2.05 ERA, a 0.98 WHIP and a 72/20 K/BB in 88 innings. He leads the American League with a .206 batting average against.
 
Hot6/8/2014 5:38:00 PM
Description: Not that the A's needed it, but Scott Kazmir was lights out Sunday versus the Orioles.
Insight: Oakland finished the game with 11 runs but that didn't stop Kazmir from having one of his best outings of the year (7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 7 K's, 2 BB). The 30-year-old left-hander owns a 2.20 ERA in 13 appearances.
 
Hot5/17/2014 9:17:00 PM
Description: Oakland starter Scott Kazmir got himself tossed from Saturday's game in the second inning for arguing balls and strikes.
Insight: He may have had a point, as he walked three batters in 1 1/3 innings after issuing just nine free passes in his first 51 1/3 this season. Still, it's disappointing for fantasy owners relying on Kazmir's production on Saturday.
