Rays have high hopes for starting pitcher Nathan Karns
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rays starting pitcher Nathan Karns is in camp again this year competing for the last spot in the team's rotation. His top competition is Alex Colome, who is out of options unlike Karns. 

Even if Karns has to begin the season in the minors, the Rays still have high hopes for the 27-year-old right-hander.

"Karns has big stuff," Rays minor-league director Mitch Lukevics said, per MLB.com. "I watched him a lot last season in Durham. Big stuff, big tools. He's improving his command. And when he gets that command and learns how to pitch a little more, the sky's the limit for him."
