Scott Edward Kazmir (born January 24, 1984) is an American professional baseball pitcher who is a free agent. Kazmir made his Major League debut with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2004 when he was only 20 years old and at one time held many of the franchise's career pitching records. He is still among the team's all-time leaders in strikeouts, earned run average, wins, and games started.

Nagging injuries and problems with mechanics beginning in the 2008 season gradually reduced his effectiveness. He was traded to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in August 2009 and performed well for a time. However, his performance deteriorated during the 2010 season and beyond, eventually leading to his release in June 2011.
