Kazmir to pitch in DR

Looks like Scott Kazmir is going to the DR to pitch, to show he's healthy and can bounce back from his recent struggles.  Kazmir in recent years has struggled with injuries spending substantial time on the disable list.  After the infamous trade to the Rays in 2004, Kaz made 145 starts with a 3.92 ERA, much like Brett Saberhagen his health in Tampa an every other year thing.  But with the Angels it became a complete struggle; 2010 was his first full season with LAA he only made 26 starts with a 5.94 ERA and then in 2011 he made one start lasting only 1.2 innings while giving up five runs, in AAA he made 5 starts to a 17.02 ERA.  He last pitched for the Angels AAA on June 6th and after being released couldn't catch on with another team...
