Orioles' Bud Norris strikes out seven vs. Yankees Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing three earned runs on five hits and two walks in five innings while striking out seven in his team's 7-5 win over the Yankees.
Norris took a big step forward Wednesday after surrendering seven runs in three innings in his season debut, but he was on the hook for the loss when he left the game before his offense exploded for five runs in the bottom of the sixth. He owns a 12.38 ERA and 8:3 K:BB ratio in eight innings heading into Tuesday's scheduled start against the Blue Jays.
Orioles SP Bud Norris looks to get on track vs. Yankees
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Orioles starting pitcher Bud Norris has not had a lot of success in 2015. After posting a 9.26 ERA in 11 2/3 innings during spring training, the right-hander was lit up for eight runs in three-plus innings during his season debut Friday against the Blue Jays.
Norris will look to get on track during his second start of the season Wednesday against the Yankees, and facing New York could be the perfect remedy for the right-hander.
Norris is a perfect 4-0 with a 2.74 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in four career starts against the Yankees. All four of his starts against New York came in 2014. He also had 28 strikeouts in 23 innings against the AL East foe last season.
The Orioles are favored (-120) in Wednesday's game.
Orioles P Bud Norris surrenders 8 runs in loss to Blue Jays
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/10/15) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris had his worst game since becoming a member of Baltimore's club in Friday's 12-5 loss to the Blue Jays.
Norris allowed eight earned runs in three innings of work. He gave up seven hits, walked one batter and struck out one. He was credited with the loss. His season begins with an ERA of 24.00.
Norris, in his third season with the Orioles, surrendered four runs in the first inning, one in the the second and three in the third. Brad Brach came in for Norris to start the fourth.
"Frustrating," Norris said, via MASNSports.com. "Not what I envisioned. Tough to do here at home in front of these guys. I'll take that one for sure on me.
"Slider wasn't great today. I got ahead in some counts and they put some good swings and found some holes. But I've got to get better. This is the first one of many. So, take it with a grain of salt. I know I have a lot more in the tank and I just have to learn from it. I'm a little frustrated, so back to the drawing board and get back out there."
The last time Norris gave up eight runs in a major-league game was on July 20, 2012, when he was with the Astros. Norris gave up nine that day against the Diamondbacks.
Norris' next start is slated for April 15 against the Yankees.
Bud Norris to start fourth game for O's; fifth starter remains TBD
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/3/15) Orioles manager Buck Showalter announced Friday starting pitcher Bud Norris will start the home opener April 10 against the Blue Jays, following Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen and Miguel Gonzalez in the rotation.
Unfortunately, Showalter wasn't ready to name a fifth starter between Ubaldo Jimenez and Kevin Gausman. In fact, Showalter said he might not be ready to make that call until after the first or second game of the season.
Orioles pitcher Bud Norris not worried about spring struggles
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris had another tough outing Friday, giving up three runs in four innings of work. But Norris, who has allowed 12 earned runs over 11 2/3 innings, isn't concerned just yet, reports MLB.com.
"Every outing I've given up a home run," said Norris, who has allowed five homers in four official spring starts. "But you are trying to work on things, trying to get comfortable out there. We had a great year last year and [now we're] just trying to get the ball rolling again. Different beast, obviously in the regular season and postseason."
Manager Buck Showalter noted his command has been off.
"Command has not been very good, as good as he's capable of," Showalter said. "He's an athletic guy, can throw it where he wants to most of the time. He hasn't been very consistent with that yet. He's crisp with most things, just not [with the] consistency of command."
|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.
