Orioles inform Bud Norris he's headed to the bullpen


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) The Orioles informed Bud Norris that he would be sent to the bullpen, per the Baltimore Sun.

Manager Buck Showalter confirmed that Kevin Gausman would start Tuesday's game, and Norris would be the right-handed long-relief man and spot starter. 

"We certainly have confidence in him, but he’s capable of a lot better level than he’s pitching at right now," Showalter said of Norris. 

"I'm going to go down there and pitch and when I get called on, I'm going to do the best job I can," Norris said


Orioles P Bud Norris has another poor outing in blowout loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris had yet another disappointing outing in Monday night's 8-1 loss to the Rangers. 

Norris surrendered five earned runs in six innings of work while walking one batter and striking out four. Norris gave up a four home runs in the game. He hasn't given up more than one in any game this season. 

Norris, who fell to 2-7 this year, is hopeful he can turn things around after the All-Star break. 

"I'm not a first-half guy, I hope I'm a second-half guy," Norris said, via MLB.com. "I know what I did for this team last year in the second half and I just want to get back to that guy.

"A couple pitches here and there, if I find my slider, I feel like I'm a lot more in-tune with the game. I wasn't that far off. There was some positives to this, but I got to look at these negatives too and understand you have to keep the ball in the ballpark."

Norris now has a paltry ERA of 6.79 this season. 


Orioles P Bud Norris gives up 5 runs, zero earned in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris pitched a fine game but ran into a disastrous situation in the sixth inning of Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Red Sox. 

Norris pitched five scoreless innings and then allowed five runs in the sixth. However, he wasn't credited with any of them and ended the day with zero earned runs. A fielding error and passed ball contributed to the poor inning for Baltimore, and thus Norris wasn't on the hook for the runs. 

Norris exited after 5 2/3 innings. He allowed seven hits, walked one and tossed three strikeouts. Though Norris allowed five runs, this was the first time he exited a game without having any earned to his name. 

Norris falls to 2-6 with a 6.70 ERA this year. 


Orioles P Bud Norris gives up two runs in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2015) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris gave up two runs in Thursday afternoon's 2-1 loss to the Phillies. 

For Norris, it was one of his better games of the season considering how poor his previous outings have been. Norris didn't allow a run until the sixth inning, when Ryan Howard belted a two-run shot that ultimately gave the Phillies the win. 

Norris surrendered five hits, gave up two walks and struck out two batters. Norris now has a 7.57 ERA this season. 

His next start is projected for June 24 against the Red Sox. 


Orioles SP Bud Norris escapes with no-decision on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Orioles starter Bud Norris settled for a no-decision in Saturday's outing against the Yankees. Norris went 5 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on eight hits. He struck out five and did not issue a walk. His ERA still sits at a rather unsightly 8.29 mark.

Norris put himself down early when he allowed two runs in the first inning. Then, after the Orioles had taken a 4-2 lead, Norris served up a two-run home run to Alex Rodriguez in the sixth inning to tie the game. 

Fortunately for the right-hander, his offense was able to stage a late-inning rally as they claimed the 9-4 victory.

Norris will look to get back in the win column in his next start, scheduled for Thursday in Philadelphia.

Orioles SP Bud Norris could pitch Wednesday in Houston


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

That's the word from Buck Showalter, per the Baltimore Sun. No decision was made earlier Friday because the Orioles wanted to see if Norris would be needed in an emergency bullpen appearance. But the eight-inning stint of Miguel Gonzalez made that unnecessary.

Norris is recovering from a severe case of bronchitis that has cost him 10 pounds. He has been out since May 10.

Norris went 1-4 with a 9.88 ERA in six starts before going on the disabled list. Showalter wouldn't speculate about Norris' role upon his return until speaking with him.

"We all know what he's capable of as a starting pitcher for us and we'd like to get him back to that point," Showalter said. "That's a priority. See where the season takes us."

"I'm pretty tired right now," he said in the Bowie clubhouse. "Was a hot night. That is something I'll have to keep working on. When you lose as much weight as I did, that is what I'm fighting right now, getting back to spring training shape. Get back in the gym tomorrow and keep building up.

"That outing in Triple-A my legs were not under me and tonight I felt they were there whole time. That gives me confidence I can pitch six, seven, eight innings."

Norris surrendered nine runs in 2 2/3 innings in his rehab start with Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.

"I went down to the bullpen and started to warm up and felt great in the 'pen, and by the time I pitched the first inning, I could feel my legs kind of giving out," Norris said. "As much as I do squatting and running and all that good stuff, missing as much time as I did, my body definitely took a toll. Losing as much weight as I did, I never had anything happen to me like that before. I'm excited to put it back on and take care of my body."
