Ned Yost Media Session: July 3, 2013

This afternoon Ned Yost held a short media session in the dugout. The skipper was asked about tonight’s opposing pitcher, Scott Kazmir. Until joining the Indians this season Kazmir hadn’t stepped on a Major League mound since opposing the Royals here in Kansas City in April of 2011, while he was with the Angels. Yost was asked if they scouted him any different because of that time away from the big leagues. “Not really. We have already faced him this year so we have an idea about him. We look at video of him as well. We have a good idea of what he wants to do.” Ned went on to say, “He is throwing strikes, he is changing speeds. He is also throwing the fastball in and a changeup away. He is just commanding the baseball.”
Tomorrow’s Royals starter, James Shields, was a teammate of Scott Kazmir with the Rays from 2006-09.
