|Nathan Karns heading to Tampa |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(2/13/14) Nationals pitcher Nathan Karns has been told he's headed to Tampa Bay, according to The Washington Post.
Karns was rumored to be involved in a deal for catcher Jose Lobaton, so that could be the potential deal. There's no word at this time what the Rays would send to the Nationals. The 26-year-old Karns pitched 12 innings in the majors last season. He posted a 7.50 ERA.

(6/12/13) The Nationals are set to option Nathan Karns to Double-A Harrisburg Wednesday, in order to make room on the active roster for Ross Ohlendorf, who is Wednesday's starter.
Karns posted a 7.50 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in three starts, with six walks and 11 strikeouts in 12 innings.
Manager Davey Johnson told The Washington Times that he likes Karns' stuff, but wants him to work on his command while back in the minors.
|Nathan Karns roughed up in no-decision |

(6/10/13) Nationals pitcher Nathan Karns did not factor in the decision in Game 2 of a day-night doubleheader against the Twins.
Karns allowed four runs in the second frame, including a two-run shot to Pedro Florimon. The right-hander surrendered four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two in three innings pitched.
Karns has yielded three runs or more in all three of his starts. He is scheduled to make his next start Saturday at Cleveland.
|Gio Gonzalez, Nathan Karns pushed back a day by rain |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/6/13) The Nationals' game against the Mets Thursday was postponed due to rain, an outcome that likely works out well for the team's rotation plans. The Nationals needed a starter for Saturday's game against the Twins, but will instead simply push their starters back a day.
Gio Gonzalez will pitch Friday in the series opener, and Nathan Karns will take the mound Saturday. Ross Ohlendorf is now unlikely to be recalled to the big-league roster, as previously reported.
|Nathan Karns tagged for first loss |
|by Jeff Tobin | CBSSports.com|
(6/2/13) For the second straight start, Washington Nationals pitcher Nathan Karns couldn't make it out of the fifth inning Sunday in a 6-3 loss in Atlanta.
Karns, who made his MLB debut May 28 in a game where he pitched 4 1/3 innings, made it one out longer this time. He allowed three earned runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings while striking out six and walking one.
He's 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA in his two starts. Karns has struck out nine and walked three. His WHIP is 1.67.
Karns' next scheduled start is June 8 against Minnesota.
|Nathan Karns made the unexpected jump from Double-A to the majors last season when Washington needed some rotation help at the end of the May. Unfortunately for Karns, who entered last season as one of the Nationals' top pitching prospects, he did not have a strong MLB debut. He never made it out of the fifth inning in any of his three starts before being demoted back to the minors. Karns went 0-1 with a 7.50 ERA and 1.92 WHIP. The good news is that Karns wasn't shaken by struggles, as he posted a 2.57 ERA following his demotion back to Double-A. Karns would go 10-6 with a 3.26 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 23 starts for Harrisburg last season. Karns attacks hitters with a power sinker and hammer curveball. However, he's still learning to throw his curveball for strikes and is working on developing his changeup. Fantasy owners will want Karns to succeed as a starter since he is a great strikeout pitcher (10.7 K/9), but he might end up as a reliever if he can't harness his command and develop a third pitch. Karns, who was traded to Rays in February, could be back in the majors in 2014, but he's more of a long-term Fantasy keeper on Draft Day.
