Scott Kazmir’s independent league comeback isn’t pretty
All you need to know about how poorly Scott Kazmir’s time with the independent league Sugar Land Skeeters is going can be found in the first sentence of this game recap on the team’s official website:
When someone is looking to find “positives” within an eight-walk start from a 28-year-old former big-league All-Star pitching in an independent league ... well, things aren’t going well.
Here’s more, from recapper Devon Teeple:
Yes, if you take away the eight walks it wasn’t a bad little outing. Now, in fairness within that same article it says Kazmir’s fastball was clocked in the mid-90s, which would be legitimately encouraging if true.
And now he’ll be rotation-mates with Roger Clemens. Helluva team.
