Angels Notes: Kazmir, Bell, Palmer

The latest on the Angels, who lost three of four games against the Royals over the weekend...

  • Though Angels manager Mike Scioscia says he’ll consider making changes to the pitching staff, Scott Kazmir’s job is safe for now, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. The $12MM left-hander is on a “short leash,” but he’ll make at least one more start.
  • Dave Cameron of FanGraphs explains that there’s not much room for optimism when it comes to Kazmir or Marlins starter Javier Vazquez. I recently compared Kazmir to another well-paid left-hander who experienced early-career success, Oliver Perez.
  • Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles also weighs in on Kazmir's struggles and explains that Triple-A starters Matt Palmer and Trevor Bell are alternatives for the Angels to consider. They are looking out for end-of-rotation help and possibly a veteran reliever, according to Saxon.
