Cy Falls Product Inks Lucrative Deal

By  | 

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Bay left-hander Scott Kazmir
has agreed to a $28.5 million, three-year extension through 2011, a
deal with a club option that could raise the contract's value to
$39.5 million over four seasons.
The 2007 AL strikeout champion is 36-30 with a 3.63 ERA in 100
major league appearances, including 99 starts. He began this season
on the 15-day disabled list after straining his left elbow, but
returned to the rotation on May 4.
The 24-year-old, 13-9 with a 3.48 ERA last season, was an
All-Star in 2006. He is Tampa Bay's career leader in wins,
strikeouts, starts and innings pitched.
Kazmir is earning $3,785,000 this season, and would have been
eligible for free agency after the 2010 season.
