Scott Kazmir stays with Giants and expected to be a starting option again

It appears the great Scott Kazmir story will see another chapter.

Report: LHP Scott Kazmir designated by Giants

Scott Kazmir's comeback, after not pitching in the major leagues for five years, hit a snag Saturday after the left-hander was designated for assignment by the San Francisco Giants, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. After last pitching for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2016, Kazmir had a turn in independent baseball last year before signing a minor league deal with the Giants this spring. He made his debut for San Francisco on May 22 against the Dodgers, giving up one run over four innings.
