(5/8/13) Pirates starting pitcher Jeff Karstens, who has been sidelined all season with a shoulder injury, threw 29 pitches during a two-inning rehab start in extended spring training Wednesday. If Karstens emerges unscathed, then he's expected to begin a rehab assignment with Class A Bradenton May 13.

(5/3/13) Pirates starting pitcher Jeff Karstens, on the 15-day disabled list, threw a two-inning simulated game Friday and reported no issues after his session, MLB.com reports.
According to the report, Karstens will head to Florida to start pitching in extended spring training Wednesday. If all goes well, he is expected to report to Class A Bradenton to start a rehab assignment May 13.
|Jeff Karstens dealt with a couple of injuries last season but continued to make progress as a starter for the Pirates. A shoulder issue sidelined him early on before a hip injury ended his season, but the right-hander ended up going 5-4 with a 3.97 ERA in 19 appearances (15 starts). He posted a 3.89 ERA as a starter and had an efficient 59-to-15 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 83 1/3 innings pitched in those outings. Karstens has made 20-plus starts just once in his career due to injuries and inconsistencies but he is expected to compete for a spot in the rotation during the spring so keep an eye on how he does. The 30-year-old will be worth a look in NL-only formats as a starter but should be ignored in most Fantasy leagues on Draft Day. (Updated 12/4/12)|
