Scott Kazmir said he had a great bullpen session Wednesday with no triceps pain. 

The triceps soreness that Kazmir experienced the other day seemed relatively minor and neither he nor the team seemed overwhelmingly concerned, even with his lengthy injury history. Look for him to maybe throw another session before his next scheduled start just to be sure, but so far it looks like all is well.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said the team will be careful with starting pitcher Scott Kazmir (triceps), but Melvin said Kazmir is doing good and is on target for regular start Saturday.

Let's hope the A's are cautious with Kazmir, since he is the a fine #2 to Gray. There is no reason to take chances with their veteran SP.

Scott Kazmir said that his triceps issue is nothing to worry about at this time and it will not affect his next start.

Kazmir left his Sunday start early due to an issue with his triceps. He tossed six shutout innings but threw just 82 pitches in total. Both he and the club said that there was nothing to worry about but with the rash of injuries we've seen to pitchers this season, it's difficult to not worry.

Scott Kazmir threw a 35-pitch bullpen session and, he says, "It went great."

Kazmir is all kinds of risky in 2014. If you can draft him to be a depth starter in a mixed league that is fine, but you're playing with fire, without mittens on, if you think he's worthy of being one of your top-5 starters in a mixed league.

Scott Kazmir (triceps) will not pitch Tuesday. He was also scratched from Monday's start.

We're still waiting for elucidation with the injury that Kazmir suffered. At this point we've been led to believe that the situation is minor, but Kazmir is still a big risk to pitch effectively or stay healthy. Folks seem to forget that the last time Kazmir threw 160 innings in a season was 2007.

Scott Kazmir has been scratched Monday with left triceps stiffness.

Jarrod Parker is out for the year. A.J. Griffin could miss a couple of months. No Kazmir has an issue. It's too early to know how long Kazmir will be out, but after resurrecting his career last season people seemed to have totally forgotten that his arm was in shambles to years ago. Can't say we didn't warn you with Kazmir if this turns out to be something significant.

Scott Kazmir was sharp in Wednesday's exhibition game, allowing no runs and only one hit over four innings.

Scott Kazmir will throw 45-50 pitches on Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Kazmir rejuvenated his career somewhat last year with the Indians and with the move to Oakland that should only help increase his chances putting up similar numbers as last season (4.04 ERA/3.36 xFIP, 9.23 K/9, 24.1 K%) and at his 266 ADP comes at a good discount to warrant taking a risk on him late in your draft.
