Orioles' Nate Karns: Odds of cracking rotation dwindling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
