Royals' Nathan Karns: Surgery went as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karns (forearm) underwent a successful thoracic outlet syndrome surgery Wednesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Karns is set to return for spring training next season after deciding on season-ending surgery last week. The right-hander had been dealing with forearm soreness since mid-May, and will take the next eight months to rest, recover and rehab prior to the 2018 season.

Royals' Nathan Karns: Decides on season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karns has decided to have season-ending surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander was debating whether he could avoid surgery and return this season, but Karns announced Saturday that he'll move forward with the advised treatment. Surgery is scheduled for July 19, and his 2017 campaign ends after just nine games.

Royals' Nathan Karns: Not throwing in towel on 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karns (forearm) will see a specialist after the All-Star break with hopes of pitching again this season, The Associated Press reports.

News released Friday strongly suggested Karns was headed for season-ending surgery, but it sounds like the right-hander isn't accepting that fate just yet. He's been on the DL since May with thoracic outlet syndrome, but Karns should have a final answer on how 2017 will play out after his upcoming meeting.

Royals' Nathan Karns: Likely to need season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karns (forearm) is likely to need surgery to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, a season-ending procedure, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports Monday

Karns threw off a mound Tuesday and the Royals were hopeful that he wouldn't be out much past the All-Star break. He has been experiencing tightness at the top of his forearm which has now been attributed to thoracic outlet syndrome. This injury has cost other pitchers full seasons -- fellow Royal hurler Luke Hochevar among them -- and so if Karns does indeed go through with the surgery as expected, he won't pitch again in 2017.

Royals' Nathan Karns: Will throw off mound Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karns (forearm) is set to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Assuming his first session Tuesday goes according to plan, Karns will get on the mound again to throw Thursday. Prior to being shut down with the forearm soreness, Karns had been pitching as well as he had all season, so the Royals are content to take it slow with the recovery process so that he's 100 percent healthy upon being activated. If the bullpen sessions go well, Karns could progress to facing hitters before heading out on a rehab assignment during the All-Star break.
