Royals' Nathan Karns: Traded to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners agreed to trade Karns to the Royals on Friday in exchange for outfielder Jarrod Dyson, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Karns turned in unsightly numbers in 22 appearances (15 starts) for the Mariners and missed the final two months with a back injury, but his 4.05 FIP was lower than his mark from 2015, when he had a 3.67 ERA for Tampa Bay. With the trade, Karns is now on to his fourth organization in five years. His walk rate ballooned last year, but Karns also struck out nearly a quarter of the batters he faced and he should have every opportunity to stick in the Kansas City rotation.

Mariners' Nate Karns: Activated from DL on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karns (back) was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Shannon Drayer of ESPN Radio reports.

Karns strained his back in late July, but with the season coming to an end, the Mariners were able to stick him back on the 40-man roster. Considering the fact that he nearly returned to the majors prior to the end of the 2016 campaign, the right-hander will likely be ready to go for spring training.

Mariners' Nate Karns: Hopes to return before season's end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karns (back) played catch in the outfield prior to Wednesday's game and is hopeful he will be able to return before the end of the season, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports.

Even if Karns is able to return this season, he isn't eligible to come off the 60-day DL until Sept. 29 and the season ends Oct. 2, so he would only be able to pitch in a couple games in the best-case scenario. He posted a 4.56 ERA in 81 innings as a starter and an 8.78 ERA in 13.1 innings as a reliever this year, getting hit hard in both roles.

Mariners' Nate Karns: Moved to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Karns (back) was moved to the 60-day disabled list on Thursday.

With Scribner being moved to the 60-day DL, a return for the 2016 campaign may be hard for him to obtain. He'll be eligible to be activated Sept. 28, while the Mariners' regular season ends Oct. 2. In a corresponding move, Evan Scribner was activated from the disabled list.

Mariners' Nate Karns: Return date could be delayed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karns (back) is likely to be out for "a while" according to Mariners manager Scott Servais, Bob Dutton of TheNewsTribune reports.

Karns aggravated his lower back on a swing in a game on July 29 and was subsequently placed on the DL a day later. While he's been given shots to subdue the pain, progress has apparently been minimal and Servais commented that he doesn't expect to see Karns back "anytime soon". It seems possible that the right-handed starting pitcher could be shut down for most of August.
