It’s been a bad season for the A’s so far. It just got worse.
Scott Kazmir got the start for Oakland and made it through three shutout innings. It was dicey for a bit — he needed 47 pitches to make it that far — but the bullpen got ready in a hurry as the A’s batted in the bottom of the third and Dan Otero came out to replace Kazmir to start the fourth. Kazmir could be seen pointing to his shoulder and talking to manager Bob Melvin and team trainers.
Our friend Ken Arneson sums it up:
I could be wrong but ai feel like Scott Kazmir sitting in the dugout pointing at his left shoulder is bad

Coming into today Kazmir was 2-3 with a 3.09 ERA in nine starts.
Updates as we hear them.
