Blue Jays' Daniel Norris says he is at 'tail end' of 'dead-arm phase'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Blue Jays rookie starting pitcher Daniel Norris threw just five first-pitch strikes during his shortest outing (2 2/3 innings) Sunday against the Braves. He also went 2-0 and 3-1 in the count four times each.
Norris threw just 66 pitches and only 50 percent were strikes. After the game, he said he was going through a "dead-arm phase."
“Dead arm is something where you feel 100 percent fine; it’s just that it doesn’t come out like it usually does,” he said, per the National Post. “And even if I throw one that says 93 or 94, it just doesn’t have the same life on it, and I can’t really command it the way that I’m used to. This happens to everybody. It’s happened numerous times in my life. It’s just a matter of getting through it.”
Norris, who is scheduled to make his next start Saturday at Tampa Bay, feels his dead-arm issue might not linger much longer.
“I should be at the tail end of it. Hoping so,” he said.
Blue Jays' Daniel Norris chased in third inning vs. Braves

|(4/19/15) Blue Jays pitcher Daniel Norris took the loss Sunday, allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks in just 2 2/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 5-2 defeat against the Braves.
Norris (1-1) loaded the bases in the first inning before surrendering a three-run double. He then saw two more runs score in the third inning, though one came around due to a throwing error, before being removed from the game.
“I’m going through a little bit of a dead-arm phase," Norris said after the game, per TSN.
The lefty owns a 6.08 ERA and 10:7 K:BB ratio in 13 1/3 innings heading into a matchup with the Rays next weekend.

Blue Jays P Daniel Norris earns win in his first start of season
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Blue Jays pitcher Daniel Norris came away from Thursday's game with a win, as the team beat the Yankees 6-3.
Norris went 5 2/3 innings, giving up six hits and three runs with five strikeouts and two walks. He finished the outing with an ERA of 4.76.
''The main focus is baseball. Winning ballgames, like tonight,'' Norris said. ''So if I can keep going out there performing like I did tonight, hopefully I'll put that stuff behind me.''
Norris will look to earn another victory as the team faces the Rays on Tuesday.
Blue Jays set pitching rotation for first series of season
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/5/15) The Blue Jays set their starting rotation for the first three games of the season, against the Yankees.
RHP Drew Hutchison will start Monday's opener. After an off day on Tuesday, RHP R.A. Dickey will start Wednesday and LHP Daniel Norris, Thursday.
|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.
