|Compared to same point last season|
Sitting in his office early Friday morning, Royals manager Ned Yost suggested it was way too early to begin formulating his rotation for 2018.
Spin: Yet it would seem obvious that Yost's front four will be veterans Danny Duffy, Ian Kennedy, Jason Hammel and Nathan Karns. And the Royals will be keeping a close eye on the 30-year-old Karns, acquired prior to last season from the Mariners for Jarrod Dyson. Karns was lights out last May as a starter before he went on the disabled list and ultimately underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery, a procedure that relieves nerve tension in the chest and shoulder area by removing a part of the upper ribs. Karns reports all systems are go early in camp. He threw his fourth bullpen session Friday. "We worked hard to come in here with no restrictions," Karns said. "I've had no setbacks or hiccups. I'm as normal as we can be." Karns credits an offseason program of throwing a football to re-teach his body the proper throwing mechanics again. "When you throw a football you have to be mechanically sound to throw a spiral that far," Karns said. "It forced me to use my lower body better. So far so good."
