Is Scott Kazmir hitting rock bottom?

It's fair to say things aren't going well for Angels left-hander Scott Kazmir, who now has a 31.50 ERA in two rehab starts for Triple-A Salt Lake.

Kazmir gave up 10 runs (eight earned) in 2 1/3 innings at Tucson Sunday night. He gave up five hits, walked three and struck out two of the eight batters he faced. The Angels can leave Kazmir at Triple-A for up to 30 days, so there's no rush to figure out what to do with him. At this stage, it would be surprising to see him pitching in the big leagues this season.

The Angels placed Kazmir on the 15-day disabled list ostensibly for some discomfort in his lower back after his first start of 2011. He spent six weeks in extended spring training.
