Mets To Scout Scott Kazmir
The Mets planned to send a scout to a scheduled showcase in Houston for the team’s former top draft pick, Scott Kazmir, a club insider told the New York Daily News.
Kazmir, 28, is trying to jump start his once-promising career and has scheduled a workout for Wednesday.
The Mets drafted Kazmir in the first round of the 2002 draft, and them traded the promising young left-hander to Tampa Bay two years later Victor Zambrano.
Zambrano was 10-14 in 39 games with the Mets, while Kazmir went 55-44 with a 3.92 ERA over 144 starts in six years with the Rays.
Kazmir was released by the Los Angeles Angels last year after posting a 5.94 ERA.
If the Mets do sign him, it will be to a minor league contract.
