Karns (forearm) tossed a 20-pitch simulated game Saturday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Karns' return to the Orioles finally looks to be in sight after he's spent more than three months on the shelf with right forearm tightness. The long reliever has already completed four minor-league rehab appearances this month and expects to be ready for reinstatement from the 60-day injured list at the beginning of August, when the Orioles will have wrapped up a nine-game road trip.
Karns' (forearm) rehab has moved to Double-A Bowie, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
He gave up three runs while recording just two outs in an outing for High-A Frederick on Friday but is apparently ready to face more advanced hitters. Karns is trending toward an activation in late July.
Karns (forearm) will make a rehab appearance for High-A Frederick on Friday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Karns has made four appearances on his latest rehab assignment, all in rookie ball to date. He's allowed just one run on one hit in 4.1 innings of work, though his 3:3 K:BB isn't particularly encouraging. None of his appearances have been longer than two innings, as he's expected to pitch out of the bullpen when he returns to Baltimore.
Karns (forearm) began a minor-league rehab assignment last week with the Orioles' rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliate, appearing in three games and giving up one run on one hit and three walks over 2.1 innings.
Karns has been on the shelf since early April after being diagnosed with a strained forearm. The right-hander opted to treat the injury through rest and rehab rather than surgery, thereby allowing him to pitch again this season. Since he's been sidelined for almost three months, Karns will need additional time on the farm to build up his arm. If he avoids any further setbacks in his subsequent rehab outings, he'll likely return from the 60-day injured list at some point shortly after the All-Star break.
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.
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.
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.
Karns is getting checked out Sunday by the Orioles' medical staff due to some lingering discomfort in his forearm, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
He gave up a three-run home run in a third of an inning for Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday, and it sounds like he may have experienced a setback. Consider him out indefinitely for now.
Karns (forearm) will throw a rehab inning with Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Karns expected a short stay on the injured list and appears to be on track. He's already eligible to return, so he'll miss more than the minimum, but it doesn't appear as if he'll need significantly more time.
Karns (forearm) feels good after throwing a bullpen session Sunday and will throw another Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Karns had said he expected his stay of the injured list to be short, and his progress since landing on the IL supports that notion. He's eligible to return Friday, though it's not yet clear whether the Orioles plan to activate him as soon as possible.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Karns (0-1) allowed one run (none earned) on three hits and no walks while striking out four across two innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Karns appeared as the opener for the second time this season. After struggling with his control in his first outing, Karns found the zone with 23 of his 32 pitches and also generated seven swinging strikes. He's been used primarily as a starter throughout his five-year career, but has struggled to stay healthy and thus may settle into the opener role for the remainder of the season.
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.
