Scott Kazmir, the staff ace and arguably the second best lefty in all of baseball is going to miss a good chunk of spring training. While warming up yesterday, Kazmir felt some soreness in his arm at the very end of his warm up. He will undergo an MRI to check it out. So for now the Rays are saying he will be out for two weeks. If the MRI comes back negative and he’s good to go then he’ll probably just have a slower start to the season. However, if it comes back and it’s revealed that there is something wrong I would have to guess that the Rays will take every precaution.
Kazmir is only 24 and led the American League in strike outs last season.
