Nationals Call Up AA Pitcher Nathan Karns

With several starters signed as major league depth struggling at Class AAA, the Nationals chose Karns to replace lefty Ross Detwiler, who is on the disabled list with a slight oblique strain, in the hope his ability can overcome inexperience. Karns, named this winter by Baseball America as the No. 5 prospect in the Nationals’ farm system, has a 4.60 ERA with 55 strikeouts over 45 innings this year.

Detwiler feels good, just needs a few days’ rest.

Detwiler has progressed well.

Detwiler cleared to start Tuesday.

Quick! Call up another pitcher!!

And he'll be going up against a crafty veteran from Baltimore...comparatively speaking.

Karns is an intriguing guy - already 25 years old but with just 216 innings in the minors due to injury. He seems to have some good raw talent, but who knows if he has the experience to put it together or the health to do so for more than a few starts before blowing out.

I don't think so Tim.

Maybe the Nationals are praying for a rain-out?
