Nathan Karns

APRIL 2017 – Nathan Karns, who earned a spot in the Kansas City Royals rotation in spring training, went to Arlington (Texas) James Martin High and was a Rangers fan. The Rangers home stadium is just a few long tosses away from his high school.

He was a linebacker in the fall, liking to hit people, especially the quarterback.

In the spring, he was a right-handed pitcher armed with a 97 mile per hour fastball. The scouts noticed and so did the college recruiters.

The Astros drafted him in 2006 out of high school, but he did not sign.
