  1. Karns line looks really solid. Is he ready to make the move to Potomac and how does he rate as a prospect in terms of stuff?

  2. Q1: Probably
    Q2: Throws hard and has flashed a serviceable curve, but control/command has been spotty.

    1. Sounds like the very definition of a Low A pitcher.
      Karns is different because he missed a year with something mysterious.
