Scott Kazmir, who sat out the rest of the season after being let go by the Angels in June, began his comeback in the Dominican Winter League with an ugly outing Wednesday. He gave up four runs while retiring just one batter for Escogido.
Kazmir made only one start (5 ER in 1 2/3 IP) for the Angels last season before being shuffled off to the disabled list and, later, to the waiver wire. He went 9-15 with a 5.94 ERA in 28 starts in 2010. His best slider is long gone, and his struggles at finding a consistent release point have left him with very little in the way of command. While he’s just turning 28 in January, he may be done as a major league pitcher.
