Nathan Karns doing his best to win spot in Rays' rotation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rays starting pitcher Nathan Karns might be considered a dark-horse candidate for the final spot in the team's rotation, but he continues to make the decision tough on the coaching staff after another strong outing Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

After holding Toronto to one hit in two scoreless innings in his previous appearance, Karns made his first start of the spring Wednesday, holding Toronto to three hits and one walk in 3 1/3 scoreless innings. He had one strikeout.

Karns has not allowed a run in 6 1/3 innings, while giving up just four hits and two walks. He has three strikeouts.

Competition for final spot in Rays' rotation down to four pitchers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The competition for the final spot in the Rays' rotation is down to four candidates after Enny Romero and Alex Colome were optioned to the minors Saturday. Jake Odorizzi, Nathan Karns, Erik Bedard and Cesar Ramos are the four remaining options for the last spot in the team's rotation.

"You look at each one individually," manager Joe Maddon said, per MLB.com. "Let's say Odorizzi. Here's a guy vying for a job and he's out there working on a new pitch (changeup). It's a beautiful thing. And now he's made some progress with that.

"Karns had a little bit of a setback the other day [general soreness]. He came back and was throwing the ball well, kept the ball down. And Bedard had a nice outing his last time out. Bedard's velocity came up a little bit. Odorizzi's developing this other pitch. And Karns is just kind of interesting the way he throws the ball hard and down. That's what I've focused on with all three."

Nathan Karns heading to Tampa
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Nathan Karns has been told he's headed to Tampa Bay, according to The Washington Post.

Karns was rumored to be involved in a deal for catcher Jose Lobaton, so that could be the potential deal. There's no word at this time what the Rays would send to the Nationals. The 26-year-old Karns pitched 12 innings in the majors last season. He posted a 7.50 ERA.
