Blue Jays want consistency from SP Daniel Norris at Triple-A
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) Blue Jays left-hander Daniel Norris could be close to returning to the Major Leagues. Norris was optioned to Triple-A on May 1 after allowing 10 earned runs in 23 1/3 innings over his first five starts with the Blue Jays this year. His 18:12 K:BB ratio didn't do him any favors either.
But in three starts at Buffalo, the rookie has a 2.50 ERA in three starts since his demotion. In his most recent start, Norris went six innings, allowing three runs on five hits. He walked three and struck out nine. He will make his next start on Friday, according to SportsNet. The Blue Jays are looking for some consistency out of the young hurler before they decide to bring him back up.
“His last outing was pretty good, we just want to see that a couple of times, a few times maybe, for his own benefit. He needs that,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. “We’re looking to get him back. He got here so quick, he started to struggle, you want to make sure what you did by sending him down was worthwhile, that he’s regrouped enough, instead of rushing him back. If he’s not quite ready yet, then you’re back to square one again.”
Blue Jays will bring back Daniel Norris after hot streak in minors
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/4/15) Blue Jays rookie starting pitcher Daniel Norris had his ups and downs before being sent to the minors Friday. The Blue Jays have a plan for Norris, as they are expecting him to return to the majors this season.
"Just like [Marcus] Stroman last year, we thought send him down to get him hot and then get him back up here," general manager Alex Anthopoulos said.
Report: D-Backs wanted Blue Jays' Norris in trade for Wade Miley
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/4/15) Before the Red Sox ended up acquiring starting pitcher Wade Miley in the offseason, one other team thought the left-hander might be a good fit for the AL East, according to WEEI.com. The Blue Jays also had siginificant interest in trading for Miley, a major-league source said.
However, the Blue Jays opted not to make the deal when the Diamondbacks asked for starting pitcher Daniel Norris -- who is considered the team's top prospect by Baseball America and MLB.com -- in return.
The Diamondbacks traded Miley to the Red Sox on Dec. 12 for Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster and Raymel Flores. Miley is 1-3 with a 7.15 ERA in his first five starts with Boston.
Blue Jays option SP Daniel Norris after five starts
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) Prospect Daniel Norris has been optioned by the Blue Jays to make room in the roster for fellow pitcher Andrew Albers, per Sportsnet.
The 22-year-old Norris has struggled with his control in posting mediocre numbers. He pitched through six innings just once in five starts, though his 3.86 ERA is respectable. Norris has 12 walks in 23 1/3 innings.
Veteran Marco Estrada is set to start for Toronto in place of Norris.
Blue Jays' Daniel Norris allows no runs in three innings Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Blue Jays pitcher Daniel Norris didn't surrender any earned runs but lasted just three innings in a no-decision Thursday, giving up four hits and two walks while striking out one in his team's 5-1 win over the Indians.
Norris was able to battle out of trouble in each of his three innings of work, leaving a total of six guys on base and five in scoring position. However, he wasn't sent back out for the fourth inning having already accumulated 78 pitches.
"It was a big win," manager John Gibbons said after the game, per the Associated Press. "Danny really struggled throwing strikes, but he survived it without giving up any runs. The second time through the lineup we made a nice adjustment off (T.J.) House."
Norris owns a 3.86 ERA and 18:12 K:BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Yankees Tuesday.
|2014 summary: Daniel Norris went from intriguing pitching prospect to one of the best in baseball with a sensational minor-league season in which he went 12-2 with a 2.53 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 11.8 strikeouts per nine innings in 26 appearances, including 25 starts. Granted, half of those appearances came at high Class A, where he began the year, but his strikeout rate rose at every level, settling at 15.1 per nine in five appearances for Triple-A Buffalo. He got his first taste of the majors in September, making four relief appearances and one abbreviated start.|
Playing time status: Though just 21 and with limited experience in the upper levels of the minors, Norris will compete for a rotation spot this spring. Of course, he'll have to prove healthy after offseason surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow, and if he gives the Blue Jays any reason for doubt, they'll send him down for more seasoning.
2015 outlook: Norris' time is coming, though, and the Marcus Stroman injury only helps his chances. Like most young lefties, he does have some mild control issues, but the extent of his stuff and the ease with which it's translated from one level to the next could make him an instant success. He may not get drafted in standard mixed leagues just because his timetable is unclear, but he's a good bet to be owned across the board by season's end.
