|Bud Norris remains on roll with win over Yankees |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(9/24/14) Orioles right-hander Bud Norris continued his encouraging down-the-stretch performance Wednesday against the host Yankees with his fourth strong outing in the last five.
Norris allowed three earned runs on five hits in six innings to raise his record to 15-8. He walked one and fanned nine, giving him 23 strikeouts in his last 18 1/3 innings pitched. He surrendered single runs in each of the first three innings, two coming on solo blasts off the bats of Stephen Drew and Chase Headley.
He has given up just seven runs in his last 30 1/3 innings and is on a 4-0 run heading into the playoffs.

(9/23/14) Orioles manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun he will use four starting pitchers for the American League Divisional Series. Chris Tillman is on course to be the team's starter for Game 1 on Oct. 2, and Miguel Gonzalez and Wei-Yin Chen are the likely starters for Games 2 and 3, though their order has yet to be determined.
Should the series advance to a Game 4, Bud Norris would be the leading candidate to make that start.

(9/22/14) The Orioles will start right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez at the Yankees on Tuesday, allowing them to stick to their plan of giving each of their starting pitchers an extra day of rest heading into the postseason.
"There's a fine line between not having enough rest and having too much rest, so we're trying to have every guy that pitches get one extra day before the start," manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun. “We're going to try to give everybody, so you're not too far away from the ball but you get a little extra rest. They all seem to respond well to that."
While left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Monday at the Yankees, right-hander Chris Tillman won't start again until Friday at Toronto. Miguel Gonzalez will start the team's final game Sunday at Toronto.
As of now, Bud Norris and Kevin Gausman are scheduled to start Wednesday's and Thursday's games at the Yankees, but that could change. Jimenez could end up making a second start before season's end.
|Bud Norris wins despite control issues |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/17/14) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris had some control issues Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Norris allowed two hits over 5 1/3 scoreless innings. He walked five and struck out four during the outing. Norris’ penchant for free passes nearly got him in trouble at a few points during the game. He put men on second and third with only one out in the second inning, but was able to work his way out of the jam. Norris also put two men on in his final inning of work. After getting a lineout, he was pulled from the game. Norris threw 108 pitches.
With the win, Norris improved to 14-8. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.
|Bud Norris serves up four home runs vs. Rays Sunday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/7/14) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris didn't factor into the decision Sunday, allowing four earned runs on eight hits and two walks in six innings while striking out four in his team's 7-5, 11-inning win over the Rays.
Norris was touched up for four solo home runs in the start, with two coming in the first inning. He gave up an inside-the-park home run in the fourth inning, and the Rays got to him one more time in the sixth. The offense was able to come from behind and spare the starter a loss. Norris owns a 3.92 ERA and 116:44 K:BB ratio in 147 innings. He's scheduled to face the Yankees Saturday.
|Bud Norris had a 3.93 ERA and 1.41 WHIP, with 90 strikeouts in 126 innings for the Astros, prior to a July trade to the Orioles. Over 11 appearances (nine starts) in Baltimore, Norris' ERA ballooned to 4.80, with his WHIP climbing to 1.68. He finished the year with a 4.18 overall ERA, and 1.49 WHIP (his worst WHIP since his 2009 debut). Norris enters 2014 as a member of Baltimore's rotation, but his prospects for Fantasy success aren't overwhelmingly exciting. While his strikeout rate in the 11 games with the Orioles was the highest of his career, so was his hit rate. His walk rate was the second-highest. Additionally, Norris has just one full season with an ERA below 4.00, and his WHIP has dipped below 1.35 just once, as well. The 29-year-old can be left undrafted in Head-to-Head formats, and really has relevance in AL-only formats for 2014.
