RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Karns has made five starts in his major league career. He has struck out 24 batters in 24 innings, but he has also walked 10 batter and given up eight homers in that time. Last season for Triple-A Durham, Karns struck out 153 in 145.1 innings while walking 62 batters and allowing 16 home runs. Karns is primarily a two-pitch pitcher whose best pitch is a hammer curveball. His command is inconsistent, but the potential is there for him to be an effective back-end starter. With the trade of Jeremy Hellickson, Karns has a chance to earn the last spot in the rotation that needs to be kept warm while Matt Moore works his way back. Karns will provide strikeouts, but the ratios are risky.

2014

Karns put up an impressive strikeout rate at Double-A, but his control needs some work and he got hit hard in a brief major league trial while Dan Haren was on the DL. Other young pitchers appear to be ahead of him on the Nationals' depth chart, so if he continues to perform well at Triple-A this season, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him dealt to an organization with better opportunities for advancement.

2013

Karns lost the first two seasons of his pro career to shoulder woes, but after getting his feet wet in rookie ball in 2011, he exploded onto the prospect scene last year with a 148:47 K:BB ratio in 116 innings between Low-A and High-A. He has a fastball that can creep up to 95 mph, a curve so sharp it gets mistaken for a slider every now and then, and the makings of a pretty good changeup, but his high-effort delivery and intermittent control could see him eventually ticketed for the bullpen in the majors. Having any kind of future at all is a huge step though, and given how hard he has had to work just to get where he is now it is clear Karns has the necessary drive to succeed. Further improvement would move him close to the top of the Nationals' pitching prospect lists.
