Recent Update

4/27:Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Nathan Karns went six innings against the White Sox on Wednesday, but it was a losing effort. Karns bookended four clean innings by giving up two earned runs in each of the first and sixth innings. He finished the outing with five strikeouts and no walks, but he gave up big extra-base hits in his two rough innings. They all came off pitches up in the zone, and it continued to reinforce that Karns is working on a razor-thin margin. His 61.4 percent ground-ball rate shows that when he keeps the ball down, he’s extremely effective. Unfortunately, if he drifts up in the zone at all, his 30 percent HR/FB rate shows that he gets punished. Karns is now sitting at a 6.26 ERA in 2017 despite having the fifth best ground-ball rate amongst starters.--Billy Stonick - RotoBaller
