26-year old lefty starting pitcher made a good first impression on the Angels in 2009 after coming over from the Rays in a deal. He pitched in 6 games (all starts) for the Angels last season and he was 2-2 with a 1.73 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. The Angels had high hopes for Kazmir this year but he has been downright putrid. He has started 25 games for the Angels this year and he is 8-14 with a 5.99 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. He has allowed 23 homers and walked 74 batters this year in only 136 2/3 innings for the Angels. His strikeouts are also way down this season as he only has 87 of them. Kazmir is a mess right now and he doesn’t have a spot locked up in the 2011 rotation for the Angels so he better finish the season strong.
