Player Notes
Nate Karns gave up two runs in five innings, taking a no-decision in Sunday's win versus the Royals.

Advice: Both runs scored in the third when Ben Zobrist and Lorenzo Cain each hit run-scoring singles. Karns gave up six hits and a walk while striking out five on the afternoon. The right-hander hasn't been able to pitch deep into games lately, reaching the sixth inning only once in his last five starts. Nevertheless, he carries a productive 3.69 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and a 141/55 K/BB ratio over 144 innings. Karns will face the Yankees on the road in his next outing.

Nate Karns allowed five runs over three innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Twins.

Advice: Karns was done in by walks, issuing four free passes on the night, two of which came around to score. One big swing by Miguel Sano in the first inning also accounted for three of the runs. Karns' struggles haven't been the norm this year, as he is 7-5 with a 3.69 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 25 starts. The right-hander will meet the Royals on Sunday.

Rays manager Kevin Cash said there are no plans to shut down Nate Karns.

Advice: Karns is at 136 innings going into Tuesday's start. He threw 157 1/3 innings last season between the majors and the minors, so there shouldn't be any restrictions with his workload down the stretch. "Right now I feel great," said Karns, who has a 3.44 ERA this season. "I’m in a rhythm. I’m ready to push through. If the team needs me to go 200 innings this year, I feel like I’m ready for it."
