Via Jon Heyman and Alden Gonzalez, the Yankees will at least kick around the idea of signing Scott Kazmir, though it’s more due diligence than anything. “I know he’s struggled,” said Brian Cashman, who confirmed that he has yet to look into it. The Yankees could use a second lefty in the bullpen, but Kazmir hasn’t exactly shut lefties down throughout his career, even when he was good. There’s also nothing to suggest that he can get big league hitters out right now (15.1 IP, 22 H, 30 R, 29 ER, 20 BB, 14 K, 6 HB, 5 WP during his rehab assignment). I have no problem with giving anyone a minor league deal, but the expected return here is zero.
