Karns (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday. Karns has had multiple setbacks as he works his way back from a forearm strain, though it was confirmed in early May by Dr. James Andrews that he wouldn't require surgery. The transaction has little effect on his return date, which doesn't appear to be coming any time soon.
Karns received a second opinion on his strained forearm from Dr. James Andrews on Monday which confirmed that he won't need surgery, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Karns received an injection and will be shut down from throwing for 7-to-10 days. He'll then need to build his arm strength back up, so he doesn't appear to be close to returning to the field.
Karns will receive a second opinion on his strained forearm Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Karns has battled the injury since early April. He's already had to put his rehab on hold twice. More clarity about his eventual return date could emerge Monday.
Karns (forearm) will resume a throwing program Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Karns was pulled off his rehab assignment earlier in the week after experiencing renewed discomfort in his forearm, but he's been cleared to pick his throwing program back up after being evaluated by team doctors Tuesday. It remains to be seen how this recent setback will alter his return timeline. Karns has been on the shelf since April 9.
Karns (forearm) was returned to the 10-day injured list from his rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Karns' rehab had been put on hold once already, but that was a brief blip, and he was able to make a second rehab appearance Thursday. According to Kubatko, Karns has experienced renewed discomfort and will be reevaluated to determine if and when the veteran right-hander can resume his rehab assignment. He's now been on the injured list for nearly three weeks after originally expecting a brief stay, and it's not at all clear when his absence will end.
