Scott Kazmir impresses, Caleb Baragar changes roles



SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Shortly after the Giants began their workout Saturday, a crowd began to gather around the bullpen mounds on the back fields at Scottsdale Stadium.

Several coaches, a number of team staffers and even a handful of pitchers such Johnny Cueto and Logan Webb stood next to the bullpen, all to watch the newest minor league free agent throw for the first time this spring.

Scott Kazmir’s story is that interesting.

“For good reason,” manager Gabe Kapler said of the attention Kazmir earned. “He’s got a long history of pitching in big games and for several teams and it was exciting to see him on the bump again. Having been teammates with Kaz, that was kind of an inspiring moment.”

It’s no surprise all eyes are on Kazmir, a 37-year-old left-hander who hasn’t thrown a pitch in the majors since 2016. Kazmir is a few months older than Giants pitching coach Andrew Bailey, a few years older than every other player on the team’s roster and more than 16 years removed from his rookie season with Tampa Bay.

He believes he’s got more left in the tank.
