Blue Jays view Daniel Norris as a starter
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/15) The Blue Jays view pitcher Daniel Norris as a starter, according to Sportsnet.
Norris will be stretched out during the spring, but will compete with both Aaron Sanchez and Marco Estrada for the fifth spot in the team's rotation. If Norris happens to lose out on that spot, it's more likely the team sends him to the minors to continue starting.
General manager Alex Anthopoulos wouldn't rule out Norris starting the year as a reliever, but admitted starting was the bigger priority. "In a perfect scenario if he didn’t make the team as a starter he’d be in the minors being stretched out," Anthopoulos said. "We wouldn’t rule it out if he’s throwing the ball that well and Sanchez or Estrada are throwing the ball that well that he could start in the bullpen as well."
The 21-year-old Norris posted a 5.40 ERA in five games with the club last year.

Blue Jays set rotation plans, send Marcus Stroman to bullpen

Blue Jays planning for bullpen day on Thursday
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/23/14) With Marcus Stroman serving a five-game suspension and unable to take his usual turn in the Blue Jays' rotation, manager John Gibbons told the Toronto Sun he plans to use a committee of relievers to replace the 23-year-old rookie.
Gibbons has not yet determined who will start Thursday's game against the Mariners, but Todd Redmond, Daniel Norris and Sean Nolin are all candidates to appear in some role.
|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 sooner than later. The Blue Jays have two starting pitchers on the wrong side of 35 who could open the door for him if he doesn't for himself. 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.
