A's Sign Scott Kazmir

By  | 

PHOENIX (AP) - Scott Kazmir is walking into a new situation with the Oakland Athletics and a new role.

At 30, Kazmir finds himself as a veteran presence on a team full of young talent.

Kazmir signed a two-year, $22 million contract with the A's as a free agent.

Less than two years removed from pitching in an independent league, the left-hander is the newest member of Oakland's starting rotation.

The AL West champions reported to spring training Friday for physicals, and team workouts will begin Saturday.
