A's sign Scott Kazmir to 2-year, $22 million deal
Scott Kazmir has agreed to a two-year deal with the Oakland A's, according to CBSSports' Matt Snyder.
Kazmir spent the 2013 season pitching for the Cleveland Indians after spending 2012 in the Independent League. The 29-year old Kazmir had 4.04 ERA and 162 strikeouts in 158 innings last season to go with a 10-9 record.
After reaching two All-Star games early in his career with the Tampa Bay Rays, Kazmir fell out of favor after difficult seasons with the Angels in 2010 and 2011.
ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the deal is worth $22 million.
