A’s Sign LHP Scott Kazmir

Scott Kazmir looks longingly towards Oakland - Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The A’s Hot Stove is warming up.

Ken Rosenthal has the news over Twitter:

Jon Heyman is also weighing in with additional news:


This will potentially give the A's two LHP starters should Brett Anderson stay in the rotation.

Update:

Jim Bowden has numbers for us:


Also, what was suspected from Kazmir's deal is true as far as Colon is concerned:


While we don't know the breakdown of his deal, it is possible that Kazmir will be the highest-paid player the A's have ever tendered a free agent contract to.
