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.

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.

Hot5/17/2014 9:17:00 PM
