Jeff Karstens pitched for Class A Tampa tonight against Clearwater.
4 innings, 3 hits, 0 runs, 1 walk, 5 K’s. 52 pitches/42 strikes.
Brian Cashman reports that Kastens was rusty, which was expected. They’re not sure whether he will need another rehab start or not. But somebody has to pitch against the Red Sox this weekend.
