News: Kazmir struggled in 1.1 innings of work, allowing six runs on two hits and four walks in the Athletics' 8-1 loss to the Angels on Sunday. Impact: That's two poor starts in a row for Kazmir, as he gave up seven runs in three innings last time out. Manager Bob Melvin was considering resting his starter, but chose not to, but he may have to rethink that decision. Kazmir's ERA is now at a season-high 3.39.(RotoWire, )

News: Kazmir will start Sunday against the Angels, the San Jose Mercury News reports. Impact: Manager Bob Melvin has decided Kazmir could use a bit of extra rest this time through the rotation, so he'll move Samardzija up and push Kazmir back to Sunday. The switch is convenient in that it breaks up the two lefty starters, Kazmir and Jon Lester.(RotoWire, )

News: Kazmir (14-6) struggled Sunday in a loss to the Angels, allowing seven runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out one in three innings. Impact: It was Kazmir's worst start since June 24 against the Mets. After allowing just four runs in four starts in July, Kazmir has let up 20 runs in five games in August. His ERA, which was as low as 2.05 in June, has risen to 3.08 -- its highest point of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Kazmir (14-5) earned the win over the Mets on Tuesday, allowing just one run on four hits and three walks, while striking out six over six innings. Impact: Kazmir continues to impress after a few disastrous, injury-plagued seasons, as he has been on top his game this year with a 2.73 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 131:36 K:BB ratio. He has thrown 155 innings this year and with four more innings pitched, it would mark the most he has thrown since he amassed 206.2 in 2007. Kazmir's next start is set for Sunday at home against the Angels.(RotoWire, )
