Kazmir feels better day after back spams

|

BALTIMORE -- Indians left-hander Scott Kazmir felt much improved on Thursday -- a day after exiting his start against the Orioles after seven innings due to back spasms. Kazmir went through a workout, but the lefty did not throw on Thursday.

"[The spasms] calmed down and he's feeling good," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "That's good. I think he'll be OK."

Francona said Kazmir should be able to make his next start as planned. That could be Tuesday or Wednesday, considering there is an off-day on Monday.
