Nov. 7 12:12 PM PT1:12 PM MT2:12 PM CT3:12 PM ET15:12 ET20:12 GMT4:12 1:12 PM MST3:12 PM EST3:42 PM VEN0:12 UAE (+1)2:12 PM CT-Kazmir has decided not to opt out of the final two seasons of his contract, choosing to keep $32 million in pay rather than become a free agent.
Analysis: The left-hander was 10-6 with a 4.56 ERA in 26 starts last season after signing a $48 million, three-year contract. He missed a month starting in late August with neck inflammation, then cut short an outing after one inning because of chest spasms.
Sep. 24 8:57 AM PT9:57 AM MT10:57 AM CT11:57 AM ET11:57 ET15:57 GMT23:57 8:57 AM MST10:57 AM EST11:27 AM VEN19:57 UAE10:57 AM CT-Kazmir allowed two hits while tossing just 19 pitches on Friday against the Rockies in his first start for the Dodgers since Aug. 22. He left after one inning because of right spasms in his ribs and chest. The left-hander spent the past month on the disabled list with neck inflammation.
Analysis: Kazmir is running short on time to prove he belongs on the Dodgers' postseason roster. Fresh off the disabled list, the veteran pitcher was dealt another blow. ''It was tough for me to swallow,'' he said. ''It's frustrating.'' Kazmir said the pain on his front side was similar to what he felt during a brief stint at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Analysis: Kazmir said he's been bothered lately by a stiff right side of his neck. He's failed to pitch past the fifth in five of his last 10 starts, posting a 4.70 ERA.
Aug. 11 11:45 AM PT12:45 PM MT1:45 PM CT2:45 PM ET14:45 ET18:45 GMT2:45 11:45 AM MST1:45 PM EST2:15 PM VEN22:45 UAE1:45 PM CT-Kazmir lost a third consecutive start Wednesday despite a solid effort, surrendering two runs and four hits in six innings against Philadelphia with three walks and six strikeouts.

Analysis: Kazmir (6-3), who entered with an 11.17 ERA at PNC Park, retired 12 in a row after Erik Kratz's two-run single made it 4-0 in the first. The lefty allowed four hits, struck out four and walked four. "He was a completely different guy on the mound," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said of Kazmir's turnaround. He next pitches Saturday against the Rockies, against whom he permitted four runs in five innings in his lone 2016 start April 22 at Coors Field.
