Kazmir lasted only 4.1 innings Tuesday, allowing six runs (four earned) on nine hits and one walk, while striking out three in the loss to the Rangers.
Although he had a solid outing (eight innings of one-run ball in a loss to the White Sox) his last time out on Sept. 11, Kazmir has been more bust than boom of late. In his last five starts -- spanning just 23 innings -- Kazmir has given up 23 runs (21 earned). For the year, Kazmir has a 3.44 ERA and 1.15 WHIP while sporting a 150:49 K:BB over 178 innings. His next start is scheduled for Sunday at home against the Phillies.
