Scott Kazmir pitched three sharp innings in his Oakland debut, sending the Athletics to a 2-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday.
Scott Kazmir is walking into a different situation with the Oakland Athletics and a most different role.
A team-by-team look at the American League West entering spring training, including key players each club acquired and lost, and dates of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, and the full squad:
The defending AL West champion A's lost ace Bartolo Colon but bolstered a bullpen that could be MLB's best in 2014.
After a surprising run to the AL Wild Card Game in 2013, the Cleveland Indians need to make up for some key losses to win again in 2014.
On a night usually dominated by news of players let loose, the Washington Nationals and Oakland Athletics filled pitching needs with trades.
Washington has its top four starters on board for the next two seasons, a luxury few teams in the majors can boast. And with prices for even competent free-agent pitchers sky-high, that affords the Nats a nice weapon: financial flexibility.
As Scott Kazmir and Willie Bloomquist found new teams and other big-money free agents negotiated, dozens of players with lower profiles waited to find out whether they would be dumped on the market by their clubs Monday night.
The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs' immaculate Regency Furniture Stadium is only 27 miles from Nationals Park and the distance provides a fitting metaphor for what ex-National Charlie Manning and the others in the league face. It is pretty close, though not always easy to get there. But it can be done.
Two pitches after his foul popup fell between Nick Swisher and second baseman Jason Kipnis, Rendon homered into the Nationals' bullpen off Vinnie Pestano (1-2) to stun the Indians and the crowd of 33,307.
The Los Angeles Angels made a move to keep up with the Texas Rangers in the AL West by trading for infielder Alberto Callaspo last week.
The Los Angeles Angels were looking to make a counter move after rival Texas landed Cliff Lee.
Dan Haren was traded to the Los Angeles Angels by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday for left-hander Joe Saunders and three other players.
Struggling left-hander Scott Kazmir was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Los Angeles Angels because of shoulder fatigue following Sunday's 2-1 loss to Seattle.
"It is not so much the economics of the game but the way the winter plays out," he added.
"I always feel like I'm kind of going to have a chip on my shoulder just from everything that kind of went on," Kazmir said. "I feel like there's going to be always something to prove."
