The Indians have signed 28-year old lefty starting pitcher Scott Kazmir to a minor league deal. Kazmir pitched in 14 games (all starts) in Independent ball last year and he was 3-6 with a 5.34 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP. Kazmir last pitched in the majors back in 2011 with the Los Angeles Angels. Kazmir has now pitched in 180 games (179 starts) in his first 8 years in the majors and he is 66-61 with a 4.17 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. Kazmir has been an American League All-Star twice so far in his major league career and he has also won double digit games five times. Kazmir also led the A.L. in strikeouts once. It never hurts to give a guy like Kazmir a chance to make a comeback.
