Scott Kazmir’s first rehab start at Triple-A last week was a mess, as he allowed six runs and failed to make it out of the second inning, but his second outing last night remarkably was even worse.

He made it through the first two innings unscathed, but then coughed up 10 runs in the third inning while recording just one out.

Through two starts Kazmir now has a 36.00 ERA, allowing 16 runs in four innings with more walks (7) than strikeouts (5) and a .421 opponents’ batting average.

Suffice it to say the Angels won’t be rushing Kazmir back from his rehab stint and there’s seemingly a strong chance they’ll simply keep the 27-year-old southpaw and his $12 million salary at Triple-A once the 30-day assignment is over.
