Rays P Nate Karns has rough outing on Saturday
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(5:33 pm ET) After being told on Friday that he would be the No. 3 starter in the pitching rotation for the Rays, pitcher Nathan Karns was roughed up on Saturday, per MLB.com.
"My command was a little bit off," Karns said. "I fell behind a lot and these guys took advantage of that when I was really trying to make pitches. They were able to have the count in their favor."
Karns gave up six runnings in only four innings pitched against the Red Sox. The 26-year-old has only pitched in 12 innings the last two seasons with the Rays and Nationals, posting a career ERA of 6.00 with 24 strikeouts and 10 walks.

|(3/27/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash said Friday he still hasn't decided on which order Jake Odorizzi and Nathan Karns will pitch in the season-opening series against the Orioles (April 6-8).
Chris Archer has been tabbed to start Opening Day in place of Alex Cobb (forearm), but Cash is mulling the starters for the next two games because he is still looking at matchups in the next few series after Baltimore.
Rays keep Nathan Karns busy on off day vs. Class A hitters
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) The Rays were off on Tuesday, but pitcher Nathan Karns was kept busy in a Class A minor-league game, according to the Tampa Bay Times. He logged two innings of work and tossed 29 pitches.
"I knew they were going to be swinging early and often so it kind of allowed me to play with some of the pitches that I need to work on, knowing they're aggressive and making sure (the pitches) are effective,'' Karns said.
Manager Kevin Cash was impressed with his curveball.
"He threw some good curveballs,'' Cash said. "He looked like he had really good velo going today.''

|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Rays pitcher Jake McGee will throw a bullpen session and pitcher Nathan Karns will go two innings in a minor-league game on Tuesday, according to the Tampa Bay Tribune.
McGee had elbow surgery last December and threw off a mound for the first time since the procedure last Tuesday. A year ago, McGee posted a 5-2 record, 19 saves and a 1.89 ERA.
Karns is set to throw 15 pitches per inning in the minor-league game.

|(3/22/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash announced that starters Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Nathan Karns all will pitch in the team's game Saturday, a sign that they are lining up their starting rotation for Opening Day, per MLB.com.
The team's Nos. 1 and 3 starters - Alex Cobb and Drew Smyly - will start the season on the disabled list, leaving Archer as the potential Opening Day starter.
"Everything goes into lining up the rotation now," Cash said. "We're all trying to accommodate them as much as possible, because a lot of moving parts and stuff like that. I don't think anything is set in stone."
