Scott Kazmir rumors: Several teams scouting left-hander

Dilip Vishwanat

Kazmir is attempting yet another comeback, and multiple teams are showing interest.

Left-hander Scott Kazmir is back pitching in the Caribbean winter league and is being scouted by several clubs, reports Buster Olney of ESPN:

Kazmir, still just 28, has been out of professional baseball since the first week of the 2011 season, when he was released by the Los Angeles Angels with $12 million remaining on his contract.

Never one to avoid walks even at his best, the two-time All-Star and 2007 AL strikeout champion completely lost control of the strike zone during the 2010 season. Paired with a new inability to strike batters out, Kazmir became completely ineffective, posting a 6.17 ERA in his final 29 starts for the Angels.

Kazmir spent the 2012 season playing for the independent Sugar Land Skeeters, where he posted a 5.34 earned-run average and 4.6 walks per nine in 14 starts.
