Spring Training: Angels Send Kazmir To Mound; Peavy Making Spring Debut For White Sox

The Angels send Scott Kazmir to the mound today, making his second spring start, to face the White Sox at Tempe Diablo Stadium. Kazmir, the $12 million man looking to secure the fifth starter spot for the Angels, allowed three runs on five hits with one strikeout in two innings against the Dodgers on Sunday. He struggled last season, at 9-15 with a 5.94 ERA in 150 innings. The White Sox counter with Jake Peavy, making his first appearance on the mound this spring.

Also pitching for the Angels today are Scott Downs, Hisanori Takahashi, Michael Kohn, and Ryan Chafee. The White Sox are scheduled to follow Peavy on the mound with Phil Humber, Segio Santos, Chris Sale, Jesse Crain, and Josh Kinney.
