Kazmir (shoulder) will start throwing again Saturday, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.

He says he was confident all along that the shoulder injury was not serious and was just muscle tightness, and the MRI results Thursday supported that notion. Kazmir should still miss Tuesday's start but he could be back for next Sunday's outing in Boston.

Kazmir (shoulder) may only miss one start, as an MRI did not reveal any structural damage, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.

After exiting Wednesday's outing against the Tigers due to shoulder soreness, Kazmir will miss Tuesday's scheduled rematch in Detroit, but he may still avoid the disabled list. His following start lines up for next Sunday in Boston.

Kazmir (shoulder) underwent an MRI Wednesday, but his status did not become any clearer, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports.

Kazmir left Wednesday's game against the Tigers in the third inning with left shoulder tightness. More information should be known on Thursday, but his status for his next start remains uncertain.

Kazmir left Wednesday's game with left shoulder tightness after only three innings, reports Jane Lee of MLB.com.

This is obviously not good news for the A's, Kazmir or fantasy owners. Kazmir has been very solid so far in 2015 with an ERA under 3.00 and nearly a strikeout per inning. There is no indication on the severity as of yet and he will likely be listed as day to day until further tests are done, but throwing shoulder injuries are rarely good news for a pitcher.

Kazmir left his start after only three innings on Wednesday, but there has been no reason given as of yet.

Kazmit has had an excellent start to the season with an ERA under 3.00, but an injury here would obviously be a big setback to his campaign.

Kazmir surrendered two earned runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out four over 5.2 innings Friday against the Rays.

Kazmir's largely been his typically reliable self this season, but he's failed to finish six frames in each of his last two starts, giving up 15 hits and six walks over 10 innings in that span. It's worth noting that after exhibiting strong control to open the year, with just 12 walks in his first six starts, he's issued 10 bases on balls over his last three outings. He'll look to rein things in Wednesday in a tough matchup against the visiting Tigers.
