Royals acquired RHP Nate Karns from the Mariners in exchange for OF Jarrod Dyson.
Karns holds a pedestrian 4.41 ERA over his first 265 1/3 innings in the majors, but he's struck out 270 batters over that time and is under team control through 2020. He's far from a given to develop into a nice mid-rotation piece, but the righty isn't a bad pick-up for one year of Dyson. He will compete for the final spot in the Royals' rotation and will be part of the bullpen if he doesn't win that gig. Jan 6 - 5:08 PM
