Athletics | Scott Kazmir has sore triceps

Sun, 13 Apr 2014 20:18:30 -0700

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.

Athletics | Scott Kazmir to work in Game 1 Wednesday

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 20:30:56 -0700

The game between the Cleveland Indians and Oakland Athletics Tuesday, April 1, was rained out, so SP Scott Kazmir will now be pushed back to start Game 1 of a day-night doubleheader Wednesday, April 2. He was then expected to pitch Sunday, April 6, but he will be pushed back a day. "I'll be ready to go early tomorrow. It'll be a lot warmer and drier, so I'm happy about that. I kind of like day games, though. I like getting up and going right to it, instead," Kazmir said.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners who were hoping for a two-start week from Kazmir to kick off the regular season will now have him for just outing. But the good news is that he appears to be on tap for a two-start week in the second fantasy period, so be patient.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez likely to debut April 2

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 20:31:18 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez is on track to slot into the rotation behind SPs Scott Kazmir and Dan Straily, and his anticipated regular season debut would be April 2. "I like it, it's fun. It just gives me more confidence that they have confidence I can do it. I'm going to try to ride that wave of confidence," Sanchez said Tuesday, March 18.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez will be worth a look in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues, but those in mixed formats won't want to bother with him.

Athletics | Scott Kazmir back to throwing

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 16:30:52 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir (triceps) will throw a bullpen session this week and return to the rotation Saturday, March 22.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir's injury was pretty minor, apparently. He jumps back into his turn in the rotation and should be fine for the start of the regular season if he can avoid setbacks.
