Orioles P Bud Norris gunning for 200 innings in 2015
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/2/15) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris has set a goal of pitching 200 innings for the first time in his career, according to MLB.com.
Monday marked Norris' 30th birthday and he's yet to reach that benchmark in his career. A year ago, Norris notched 165 1/3 innings a year ago.
"I felt I was in the best shape of my life last year, and I can say the same thing this year," Norris said. "I feel a little bit better, actually. Going out there consistently every five days and putting up innings is really what it's all about."
Bud Norris remains without update for contract extension
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/31/15) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris said Saturday nothing has changed between he and the organization for a new contract.
"I haven't heard anything of that," Norris said. "I don't see a reason why I'd want to leave, but that's out of my control."
Norris and the Orioles are preparing for arbitration, when Norris filed for $10.25 million and Baltimore offered $7.5 million. He went 15-8 with a 3.65 ERA and 139:52 K:BB ratio in 165 1/3 innings over 28 starts in 2014.

Report: Orioles might consider trading starting pitcher Bud Norris
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/18/14) The Orioles might consider trading starting pitcher Bud Norris, sources told FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal. Norris is projected to receive $8.7 million in arbitration, according to MLBTradeRumors.com.

2015 Draft Prep: 10-team, AL-only H2H mock
As pitchers and catchers report, we go deeper with a 10-team AL-only H2H mock draft. Al Melchior highlights trends like where top rookies like Rusney Castillo slot.
2015 Fantasy Outlooks: Baltimore Orioles
The Orioles surprisingly just missed reaching the World Series last year, and Al Melchior says they can help make Fantasy winners even after key changes.
|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.
