Orioles designate pitcher Bud Norris for assignment
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/31/15) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris was designated for assignment Friday to clear a spot on the 25- and 40-man rosters for outfielder Gerardo Parra, who was acquired in a trade with the Brewers.
The 30-year-old right-hander began the season in the rotation before being moved to the bullpen in early July. He went 2-7 with a 6.79 ERA in 11 starts and went 0-2 with an 8.44 ERA in seven relief appearances.
Report: Orioles seeking to unload failed SP Bud Norris
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) The Orioles are trying to trade right-hander Bud Norris, whose market value decreased through poor performances that cost him a rotation spot, per MLB Network Insider Ken Rosenthal.
Norris, who has been moved to the bullpen with a gaudy 6.82 ERA, is still owed nearly $4 million this season. He has struggled as a reliever as well with four earned runs allowed in five innings pitched.
Orioles inform Bud Norris he's headed to the bullpen
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/4/15) The Orioles informed Bud Norris that he would be sent to the bullpen, per the Baltimore Sun.
Manager Buck Showalter confirmed that Kevin Gausman would start Tuesday's game, and Norris would be the right-handed long-relief man and spot starter.
"We certainly have confidence in him, but he’s capable of a lot better level than he’s pitching at right now," Showalter said of Norris.
"I'm going to go down there and pitch and when I get called on, I'm going to do the best job I can," Norris said.
Orioles P Bud Norris has another poor outing in blowout loss
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/29/15) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris had yet another disappointing outing in Monday night's 8-1 loss to the Rangers.
Norris surrendered five earned runs in six innings of work while walking one batter and striking out four. Norris gave up a four home runs in the game. He hasn't given up more than one in any game this season.
Norris, who fell to 2-7 this year, is hopeful he can turn things around after the All-Star break.
"I'm not a first-half guy, I hope I'm a second-half guy," Norris said, via MLB.com. "I know what I did for this team last year in the second half and I just want to get back to that guy.
"A couple pitches here and there, if I find my slider, I feel like I'm a lot more in-tune with the game. I wasn't that far off. There was some positives to this, but I got to look at these negatives too and understand you have to keep the ball in the ballpark."
Norris now has a paltry ERA of 6.79 this season.
Orioles P Bud Norris gives up 5 runs, zero earned in loss
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/24/15) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris pitched a fine game but ran into a disastrous situation in the sixth inning of Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Red Sox.
Norris pitched five scoreless innings and then allowed five runs in the sixth. However, he wasn't credited with any of them and ended the day with zero earned runs. A fielding error and passed ball contributed to the poor inning for Baltimore, and thus Norris wasn't on the hook for the runs.
Norris exited after 5 2/3 innings. He allowed seven hits, walked one and tossed three strikeouts. Though Norris allowed five runs, this was the first time he exited a game without having any earned to his name.
Norris falls to 2-6 with a 6.70 ERA this year.
|2014 summary: Bud Norris quietly had a career year in his sixth season, which was his first full season with the Orioles. Part of the reason Norris' 15-8 record, 3.65 ERA and 1.22 WHIP -- all career bests -- didn't get much fanfare may have had to do with the way he achieved them. While batters are generally swinging and missing with increasing frequency, Norris got better results by allowing more contact. Though Norris' strikeout rate plateaued (7.6 K/9, as compared to 7.5 in 2013) and his swinging strike rate declined (from 10.2 to 8.7 percent), he allowed pitches outside the strike zone to be put in play more often, which helped to reduce his walk rate. Norris' 2.8 BB/9 marked the first time he got that ratio below 3.0.
Playing time status: Norris was light on innings, pitching 165 1/3 innings over 28 starts, as he missed a couple of weeks with a groin injury and had a brief minor league demotion just prior to the All-Star break. Then again, Norris has never pitched more than 186 innings in a season, so Fantasy owners shouldn't look to him to be a workhorse.
2015 outlook: Even with the high win total and improved ERA and WHIP, Norris was not one of the top 60 starting pitchers in Fantasy points. He probably won't get 4.9 runs of support per nine innings again, so his value is more likely to fall than rise. Only owners in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues will need to keep Norris on their radar.
