  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Cleared to resume throwing

    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.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Rehab on hold again

    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.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Cleared to resume rehab stint

    Karns (forearm) will resume his rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Karns was pulled off his rehab assignment over the weekend after experiencing lingering discomfort in his forearm, but he's been cleared to pick things back up after getting through a side session with no issues Tuesday.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: To throw side session Tuesday

    Karns (forearm) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. Karns was dealing with right forearm discomfort following Sunday's rehab appearance, but it doesn't appear as though he's suffered a significant setback. The Orioles should have a better idea on whether he'll continue his rehab stint following his upcoming bullpen.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Bullpen session coming soon

    Karns (forearm) will throw a bullpen session within the next few days, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Karns has been optimistic that his stay on the injured list will be a short one, and it appears that he's trending in the right direction. He's eligible to return as soon as Friday, though it's not yet clear exactly when the Orioles expect him back.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Doesn't expect to be on IL for long

    Karns (forearm strain) thinks he will be back with the Orioles shortly after the minimum 10-day stay in the IL, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. Given the nature of the injury, his optimism seems questionable, but it's good to know that he at least doesn't expect it to be a lengthy stay on the IL. He should resume a mid-leverage role in the Orioles' bullpen once he is healthy.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Placed on injured list

    Karns was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right forearm strain Tuesday. Karns was a potentially interesting arm this season after some strong peripherals in a small sample with the Royals last year, but the injury risk was always there. He's pitched 5.1 scoreless innings so far this year but has already succumbed to injury. It's unclear how long he's expected to be out at this point. Evan Phillips was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to take his place on the roster.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Opener experiment over

    Karns will be deployed exclusively in relief moving forward rather than as an opener in games, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. The Orioles scrapped the idea of using Karns as a starter early in spring training, but the club still turned to the right-hander as an opener for two contests when the fifth turn in the rotation came up. Karns pitched exactly two innings in both games and had mixed results, prompting manager Brandon Hyde to abandon the experiment. John Means will step into the rotation Tuesday against the Athletics to fill Karns' spot, though the newly signed Dan Straily will likely end up being the long-term replacement.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Likely slated for two innings

    Manager Brandon Hyde said prior to Saturday's game against the Yankees that he's hopeful that Karns will be able to pitch into the third inning, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. Karns has been a starting pitcher for the majority of his five seasons in the big leagues, but he's slated to work in relief to begin the current campaign. However, his first appearance of 2019 will technically come in a starting role, as he'll act as the opener Saturday before likely giving way to Jimmy Yacabonis, who is expected to cover the bulk of the innings. Neither Karns nor Yacabonis makes for especially enticing streaming options given the strong lineup they'll be facing in addition to the expected brevity of their outings.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Set to open second game

    Karns is scheduled to serve as the opener for the Orioles' second game of the season, Saturday against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. With Alex Cobb (groin) headed to the injured list to open the season, the Orioles are getting creative their first time through the rotation. Karns will likely pitch an inning or two before giving way to another reliever. The veteran right-hander compiled a 3.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB through nine frames this spring.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Odds of cracking rotation dwindling

    Manager Brandon Hyde admitted Wednesday that Karns may not have sufficient time to get stretched out for a starting role ahead of Opening Day, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. Karns is healthy again after tossing a scoreless inning in relief in Tuesday's 10-4 exhibition loss to the Pirates, but the week of action he missed as a result of general arm soreness might be enough to derail his bid for a rotation spot. The right-hander would still be in good shape to break camp as a swingman for Baltimore and probably wouldn't have to wait long for a starting role to open up, given the underwhelming collection of arms currently projected to comprise the rotation.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Return set for Tuesday

    Karns (arm) is scheduled to pitch one inning Tuesday against the Pirates, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. A bout of arm soreness forced Karns to miss his previously scheduled start, but he's been cleared to return to Grapefruit League action after firing a successful bullpen session over the weekend. Barring any setbacks, the right-hander should be ready to go for the start of the season.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Throws successful bullpen session

    Karns (arm) had a successful bullpen session Saturday and should return to game action sometime this week, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Karns was scratched ahead of Saturday's scheduled start due to general arm soreness and was initially supposed to throw a side session Sunday. The 31-year-old apparently felt well enough for the bullpen session Saturday, and the positive results should put him back on track for Opening Day.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Dealing with arm soreness

    Karns was scratched from his upcoming start Saturday against the Yankees with general arm soreness, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Karns will throw a side session Sunday and then could return to the rotation. Any arm issues are a worry for a player who has thrown just 45.1 innings over the last two seasons, though the fact that he hasn't been shut down from throwing is at least somewhat encouraging. Karns' role this season remains up in the air, as he's potentially one of the Orioles' best pitchers but has serious durability concerns. The fact that injury worries are resurfacing so soon could tilt the balance towards a relief role.

  • Orioles' Nate Karns: Role remains undetermined

    Karns is being stretched out to start, but manager Brandon Hyde says he could still be used in a relief role, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports. The Orioles are short on both starters and relievers, so anywhere Karns can provide value will be useful for the team. The best version of Karns would be one of the best pitchers on the team, as he recorded a 51:13 K:BB in his most recent season, but the Orioles may have to limit his role to keep him healthy. Thoracic outlet syndrome cost him most of 2017 and elbow inflammation cost him all of 2018, so durability is a significant concern.

  • Orioles' Nathan Karns: Tossing BP early in camp

    Karns (elbow) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Karns missed a good chunk of 2017 while recovering from thoracic outlet syndrome and all of 2018 while battling elbow inflammation, but the right-hander seems to be in good health in the early stages of camp. The fact that he's at the same stage of his throwing program as the Orioles' other pitchers implies that he's not at risk of missing the start of the season, though it's possible his light innings counts over the past two years result in the organization using him judiciously during Grapefruit League play. Karns is slated to compete for a rotation gig this spring and could have some semblance of upside if he lands a spot, given his career 10.1 K/9 rate.

  • Orioles' Nathan Karns: Returns to mound work

    Karns (elbow) threw off a mound Wednesday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports. The right-hander didn't pitch in a game in 2018 due to elbow inflammation, but it seems like things have improved on that front. It's unclear whether or not Karns is at full strength. He will be a candidate for a rotation spot.

  • Orioles' Nathan Karns: Lands deal with Baltimore

    Karns (elbow) agreed to a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Orioles on Thursday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. The deal also includes $200,000 in incentives. Karns missed the entire 2018 season due to elbow inflammation and was sidelined for much of 2017 due to thoracic outlet syndrome. It's unclear where the right-hander is in terms of health right now, but he'll likely slot into the back end of Baltimore's rotation when healthy given his decent 4.37 ERA and 9.3 K/9 in his career.

  • Nathan Karns: Heads to free agency

    Karns (elbow) rejected an outright assignment to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday and opted to become a free agent, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports. Karns failed to appear in any games this past season due to elbow inflammation. This injury came on the heels of thoracic outlet syndrome surgery that he underwent in July of 2017, so it's been an injury-plagued last couple years for the right-hander. During his last relatively healthy campaign in 2016 with Seattle, he logged a 5.15 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with 101 strikeouts in 94.1 innings. He will look to latch on with a new organization and battle for a starting role come spring training.
