|Bud Norris trying to ignore trade rumors|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12:25 pm ET) With the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline looming, Astros starting pitcher Bud Norris admits it's hard to overlook he's a potential candidate to be traded, according to FOX Sports.
"It’s hard to talk about it, in all honesty," Norris said. "There’s a lot going on around me. I’ve seen a lot of trades in my 3 1/2 years up here. Now that my name’s the one popping up, it’s a little different feeling. At the end of the day, I need to prepare myself to pitch every five days for the team I’m on. I’ve been in Houston my entire career. All I know is pitching for this team. If it changes, it changes. But it’s not going to change my aspect of going out there and pitching."
Norris isn't a free agent until after the 2015 season, so the Astros don't have to deal him. However, he's a good pitcher with a reasonable salary and could provide a lift to a contender's rotation.
"You have to be informed," he said. "I don’t think you want to be blindsided by it: One day, you come to the park and, boom, you’re gone. I don’t pay too much attention to it, but I’m definitely in the loop. I get tidbits here and there ... but it comes down to the front office. I have to impress somebody enough where they want to come get me."
|Bud Norris has one bad inning in defeat|

(6/17/13) Astros starter Bud Norris was pitching extremely well Monday night at home against Chicago. That is until the sixth inning.
Norris gave up an RBI single to Paul Konerko and then allowed a bases-clearing triple to Dayan Viciedo, as the White Sox plated four runs in the sixth. Norris finished the six innings but took the loss to fall to 5-7 on the season.
He gave up four earned runs on eight hits and no walks with four strikeouts over his six frames. He threw 99 pitches and his ERA is 3.64 following the loss.
Norris has lost three straight outings but had quality starts in his previous two. He makes his next start Saturday in Chicago against the Cubs.

(6/12/13) Astros starter Bud Norris turned in a solid outing but was outdueled by Aaron Harang Tuesday night against the Mariners.
Harang pitched a complete game shutout. Norris (5-6) was charged with three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out six in seven innings pitched in a 4-0 loss. He threw 94 pitches, 63 for strikes.
Norris has allowed three runs or fewer in all but two of his 14 starts this season. He is scheduled to make his next start Monday at home against the White Sox. He is 3-2 with a 2.28 ERA in eight starts at home.

|Bud Norris drops to .500 in tough loss|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/6/13) Astros starting pitcher Bud Norris tossed his fourth quality start in a row Thursday against the Orioles, but it was not enough to stave off his fifth loss of the season.
Norris allowed plenty of hits in the game, as the Orioles rapped out nine on him, but only two of them went for extra-bases. He held Baltimore to just three runs in seven innings of work, while walking one batter and striking out seven.
Norris earned the loss in a 3-1 game, to drop his record to 5-5 on the season. He has a 3.43 ERA in 13 starts. He is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against the Mariners in Seattle.
|After posting a career-best 3.77 ERA in 2011, Bud Norris took a step back in 2012. He missed time in the first half due to a knee injury and went into the All-Star break with a 4.71 ERA. He didn't do much better down the stretch and finished the year 7-13 with a 4.65 ERA in 29 starts. While poor run support continued to affect his record, the right-hander posted solid strikeout numbers once again, whiffing 165 batters in 168 1/3 innings pitched. Norris has the potential to put up some gaudy numbers in Fantasy but his inability to pitch deep into games has hindered his career thus far. With the move to the AL West, the 27-year-old could be in for another down campaign so owners should keep that in mind on Draft Day. Target Norris in AL-only formats and some deeper mixed leagues in 2013. (Updated 12/12/12)|
