Orioles RHP Karns returns to 10-day injured list
CHICAGO (AP) — Baltimore Orioles right-hander Nate Karns has returned to the 10-day injured list after struggling while on a rehab assignment in the minors.
Karns originally went on the IL on April 9 with a right forearm strain. He made rehab appearances with Triple-A Norfolk on April 20 and Double-A Bowie on Thursday, allowing a total of five runs in 1 1/3 innings.
Manager Brandon Hyde says Karns was in Baltimore on Monday to get checked out by the team’s medical staff. Hyde says he doesn’t think Karns is feeling “right,” and they are hoping for a good report that will allow him to return to his rehab work.
Hyde also ruled out Trey Mancini for Baltimore’s series opener against the Chicago White Sox. Mancini missed Sunday’s 4-1 loss at Minnesota with a bruised right index finger.
Right-hander Yefry Ramirez was recalled from Norfolk. Ramirez takes the roster spot of right-hander Luis Ortiz, who was sent down following the series finale against the Twins.
