Angels Release Scott Kazmir

From the LA Times:

The Angels, as expected, released struggling left-hander Scott Kazmir, who couldn’t regain his form in the minor leagues, and they will eat the remainder of his $14.5-million contract for this season.

Kazmir, traded to the Angels from Tampa Bay in August 2009, made no progress at triple-A Salt Lake City, where he had a 17.02 earned-run average in five starts, giving up 29 earned runs, 22 hits and 20 walks and striking out 14 in 15 1/3 innings.
