Kazmir is experiencing tightness in his left shoulder, an injury that placed him on the disabled list earlier this season, and caused him to throw from different arm slots. Kazmir said it had been taking him longer to warm up in the bullpen before games. Manager Joe Maddon said he doesn't know when Kazmir will begin throwing again, but he didn't expect it to be too long.
"I'd like him to get back to his normal routine," Maddon said. "I would like to see him pitch before the end of the season, but if he doesn't, it's not the end of the world. If it can happen, we want it to happen."
Maddon said that he and pitching coach Mike Butcher noticed Kazmir would sometimes drop to a lower arm angle while throwing in the bullpen, and when he took the mound during games. Both Kazmir and Maddon said that if Tampa Bay was in a pennant race, Kazmir would be able to pitch through the pain.
