Jets claimed RB Daryl Richardson off waivers from the Rams.
Nice addition for the Jets as Richardson was an effective back prior to an injury this past season that opened the door for Zac Stacy, who ran away with the starting job for the Rams. Richardson, though, will again be in a backup role on a Jets team that acquired former Titan Chris Johnson this offseason, still have Chris Ivory, along with some other backs that Richardson will have to compete with, and beat out, in order to make the Jets roster this season.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Scott Kazmir allowed three runs on five hits with four strikeouts and one walk over 5 1/3 innings against the Royals on Friday in Game 2 of the ALDS.
Although far from dominant, Kazmir was solid tonight in his first postseason start since 2009. It was a positive sign for Astros fans, as Kazmir had been very bad lately, posting a 5.89 ERA over his last nine starts. But his success against the Royals came into play tonight – coming into Game 2, Kazmir was 1-1 with a 2.10 ERA and 14:3 K/BB ratio against Kansas City over 21 1/3 innings. This could be a crucial line if the series ends up going the distance. With the Astros trotting out Dallas Keuchel in Game 3 and Collin McHugh in Game 4, Kazmir will need to step up in a huge role in a potential Game 5 scenario. Even though that game would be played in Kansas City – we obviously know how electric the atmosphere would be in an elimination game at Kauffman Stadium – Kazmir would be a hot play in DFS leagues with his outstanding numbers against the Royals.
