      Mariners' Nate Karns: Dealt to Mariners

      Karns (forearm) was dealt to the Mariners as part of a six-player trade, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. Karns, along with C.J Riefenhauser and Boog Powell, has been sent to Seattle in exchange for Danny Farquhar, Brad Miller, and Logan Morrison. In 27 starts in 2015, Karns notched a 3.67 ERA to go with 145 strikeouts and 56 walks. He lost his spot in the rotation late in the season before being shut down with a mild forearm strain. Karns had trouble keeping the ball in the yard in 2015, giving up 19 home runs, so a move to spacious Safeco Field could help deflate those HR/9 numbers.

      Rays' Nathan Karns to miss rest of season due to forearm issue

      Rays pitcher Nathan Karns (forearm) has been shut down for the remainder of the season, Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune reports. He made just one relief appearance for the Rays after being bumped from the rotation earlier this month, pitching three innings against Detroit back on Sept. 8. This is the first word of an injury - he's reportedly dealing with a mild forearm strain - but it's at least possible it played a part in Karns' minimal usage over the past several weeks. It remains to be seen whether Karns will be able to go through his normal offseason routine.

      Rays SP Nathan Karns saddled with no-decision Sunday

      One more inning and perhaps Rays starter Nathan Karns would have celebrated his eighth win Sunday. As it was, he could at least celebrate keeping his team in the game long enough for his team to win. Karns, whose pitch count has been limited a bit, tossed 91 in five innings and allowed two runs on six hits. He walked one and fanned five. The right-hander struggled only in the third, when four singles, including RBI hits by Ben Zobrist and Matt Cain, tuned a 1-0 lead into a 2-1 deficit. He yielded only one hit the rest of the way. Due greatly to an inability to go deep into games, Karns has just one quality start over the last six outings.

      Rays SP Nathan Karns gets ousted early in no-decision Tuesday

      Rays starter Nathan Karns did not have a good night on the mound on Tuesday. The right-hander allowed five runs on four hits over three innings, as the Rays fell to the Twins 11-7. Karns walked four and struck out three on the night, and he did not factor in the final decision. Karns gave up three runs in the first inning, thanks to a three-run bomb by young Miguel Sano. After the Rays scored a pair of runs in the second, Karns gave up a two-run single to Torii Hunter in the third inning, putting himself in a deeper hole. The Rays rallied to tie the game, but weren't able to overcome another rally by the Twins. This was the first time Karns gave up more than four runs in a start since July 9. He is 1-0 with a 5.25 ERA over his last five starts.
