News on him is that they are letting the swelling go down before doing anything else. He is receiving treatment (ice/hot etc) and then they will re-evaluate when he can throw again. He is still on track to throw in about a week and half. Scotty is adamant that he will start the opening day of the season, but the Rays are being very cautious so u may see them hold him back a few starts if they think it is best.


Are they planning on another MRI once the swelling is gone to see if anything was missed?

Now my question.
If he starts the season the DL, will they replace him with someone or go with a 4 man rotation?

Thanks for the info. ;-D As one of many Kaz owners or those considering him for a keeper, gotta love the valuable info

But there is a real story behind Kazmir's 2007 splits. I owned him in one league and watched a lot of his first half starts in frustration. I also watched his first post-break start and it was immediately obvious he was a different pitcher. If you watched at the time, it was evident that Kazmir had found his command. Whatever was wrong during the first half (health, approach, mechanics) had been corrected during the break and he kept building from that first start back. The turnaround was very dramatic, but it made so much sense if you saw it for yourself.

Perhaps there will be some regression over the full season, but I would draft expecting him to be in line with his second half.


Rays changed his mechanics early part of 07 and he went back to his old mechanics right around the ASB.



They did this to change his chances of getting an injury and now he is injured again. Will he continue with his regular windup or will he be experimenting again?

I have Kazmir in both the leagues I just drafted. I'm feeling good about him putting up the same solid numbers as last year - or better.
