The Scott Kazmir Redemption Tour may have hit a snag even before it started. On Monday, Kazmir strained a muscle in practice, and it’s severe enough that he could be placed on the DL prior to his scheduled start against the Rays on Saturday.
Should Kazmir not be able to go, the Tribe will have a number of capable and fresh arms to choose from in guys such as Daisuke Matsuzaka, Corey Kluber, and even Trevor Bauer.
Nick Hagadone was optioned to Columbus to make room for Kazmir. The life of a Big Leaguer, folks.
