Dodgers’ starting pitcher Scott Kazmir has officially begun his rehab assignment after making his first appearance for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.

The news was first reported on Monday afternoon, to many people’s surprise as no news had previously leaked that Kazmir was on his way to play for the Quakes.

Kazmir’s start did not begin well as he gave up a leadoff home run to the very first batter that he faced. After that, he posted up as good of an outing as you could hope for someone who has not taken the mound in months.

It has been reported that he was sitting in the high 80s for a good majority of his three innings, but he topped out at 90-91 a few times. It will be a little worrisome if he is unable to make it back to the low 90s consistently.

Kazmir will most likely be making his next start for Rancho Cucamonga before possibly moving up to Tulsa or Oklahoma City.
