Scott Kazmir’s remarkable comeback journey to the Major Leagues is on pause — at least for now. The Giants have designated the 37-year-old left-hander for assignment, reports Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, though the club has not formally announced the move.
MLB teams now have seven days to trade for Kazmir before he’s placed on outright waivers. The three-time All-Star made headlines last month when he made his first start for San Francisco after being out of the Majors for nearly five years. Kazmir didn’t just buck the odds by getting back to the Majors; he pitched well against the defending World Series champion Dodgers in that May 22 outing, yielding only a Max Muncy solo home run across four innings in his first MLB start since Sept. 23, 2016.
Kazmir made two appearances after that, sandwiched around a stint on the restricted list as he attended a personal matter back home in Houston. His most recent appearance came on Friday, when he lasted two innings in his start against the Cubs.
