“I'm not all that concerned about it. I've had it before,” Tillman said, per the Baltimore Sun. “Trying to be careful with it and not make it worse than it has to be, so I think we've got time. We've got the off-day (Monday), so we want to play it safe.”

“I'm shooting for Tuesday. I came in today shooting for [Sunday], but we didn't really make any progress. Maybe a little bit, but I'd like to see a little bit more before we were able to make that decision,” Tillman said. “By that time, it's too late. I feel better, but not where I need to be to pitch [Sunday].”


Orioles RHP Mike Wright to make MLB debut, start Sunday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Orioles selected Wright in the third round of the 2011 amateur draft.

"He's another one of those guys we think highly of", manager Buck Showalter said, per MASNSports.com. "He's physically ready to go and hopefully he'll be able to present himself well against a good club. That's the team with the best record in the American League last year that we're facing. They're a good club. Very fundamentally sound."

Bud Norris knocked out early in Orioles' loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Orioles starter Bud Norris wasn't sure if he'd feel well enough to make his start. He likely doesn't feel much better after it. 

Norris gave up four runs on six hits over 3 1/3 innings, which increased his ERA to 9.88. He walked three, struck out two and gave up a solo home run. 

"I'm going to have to [throw this one away]," said Norris to MLB.com. "I had some really good stuff today, but fatigue-wise and with everything else, my stomach and everything, it just wasn't there. I'm really going to wash this one out. But I know I'm making strides, and I know our staff is, too, so I'm going to pick my head back up and get out there."

Orioles SP Bud Norris looks to get on track vs. Yankees


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Bud Norris has not had a lot of success in 2015. After posting a 9.26 ERA in 11 2/3 innings during spring training, the right-hander was lit up for eight runs in three-plus innings during his season debut Friday against the Blue Jays.

Norris will look to get on track during his second start of the season Wednesday against the Yankees, and facing New York could be the perfect remedy for the right-hander.

Norris is a perfect 4-0 with a 2.74 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in four career starts against the Yankees. All four of his starts against New York came in 2014. He also had 28 strikeouts in 23 innings against the AL East foe last season.

The Orioles are favored (-120) in Wednesday's game.


Orioles P Bud Norris surrenders 8 runs in loss to Blue Jays


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris had his worst game since becoming a member of Baltimore's club in Friday's 12-5 loss to the Blue Jays. 

Norris allowed eight earned runs in three innings of work. He gave up seven hits, walked one batter and struck out one. He was credited with the loss. His season begins with an ERA of 24.00. 

Norris, in his third season with the Orioles, surrendered four runs in the first inning, one in the the second and three in the third. Brad Brach came in for Norris to start the fourth.

"Frustrating," Norris said, via MASNSports.com. "Not what I envisioned. Tough to do here at home in front of these guys. I'll take that one for sure on me.

"Slider wasn't great today. I got ahead in some counts and they put some good swings and found some holes. But I've got to get better. This is the first one of many. So, take it with a grain of salt. I know I have a lot more in the tank and I just have to learn from it. I'm a little frustrated, so back to the drawing board and get back out there."

The last time Norris gave up eight runs in a major-league game was on July 20, 2012, when he was with the Astros. Norris gave up nine that day against the Diamondbacks. 

Norris' next start is slated for April 15 against the Yankees.

Orioles pitcher Bud Norris not worried about spring struggles


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris had another tough outing Friday, giving up three runs in four innings of work. But Norris, who has allowed 12 earned runs over 11 2/3 innings, isn't concerned just yet, reports MLB.com.

"Every outing I've given up a home run," said Norris, who has allowed five homers in four official spring starts. "But you are trying to work on things, trying to get comfortable out there. We had a great year last year and [now we're] just trying to get the ball rolling again. Different beast, obviously in the regular season and postseason."

Manager Buck Showalter noted his command has been off.

"Command has not been very good, as good as he's capable of," Showalter said. "He's an athletic guy, can throw it where he wants to most of the time. He hasn't been very consistent with that yet. He's crisp with most things, just not [with the] consistency of command."


Orioles' Bud Norris throws four innings in rain-shortened start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Bud Norris threw four innings Friday against the Rays before the game was called due to rain. He allowed three runs on four hits and two walks, while striking out one. He gave up a solo home run to Rene Rivera in the third inning.

After throwing 59 pitches, Norris headed to the indoor batting cage to continue pitching.

"I think I did 20-25 more down in the cage to simulate another inning, a couple more hitters. Just wanted to make sure we got to the pitch count again," he said, per MASNsports.com. "It's been an interesting camp for me, but I got my work in today. Threw a few more sliders. They were breaking pretty good, but I wasn't throwing enough strikes with them. Battling counts, getting behind in counts, which is kind of lazy, but I'm making the right strides and still feel pretty good and ready to get this thing going."


Orioles SP Bud Norris walks four in four innings Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Bud Norris made his fourth start of the spring Sunday, giving up three runs (two earned) on three hits and four walks in four innings while striking out five in his team's matchup with the Cardinals.

"You know, spring's been great," Norris said after the outing, per masnsports.com. "You're just trying to get healthy and that's what I keep saying to myself. Every year's a little bit different, but today get through four innings and the pitch count up was good. I had a couple brain farts in a couple scenarios, but getting out of there and talking to (Dave Wallace) after, knowing I'm where I want to be, he's happy with the results as far as how I feel and everything else. The competitive nature's going to come obviously when the regular season gets going again, so I think that's going to wake me up a little bit. But throwing all the pitches now and seeing some good results, seeing some shaky results, but working counts and working the game and just trying to get there."

Norris has posted a 9.26 ERA and 9:9 K:BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings this spring.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Orioles' Norris doesn't appear too concerned about back issue


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Bud Norris, who has pitched through back soreness, said Friday he felt better Thursday against the Cardinals than he did in his previous spring outing, per The Baltimore Sun.

"It's early in camp, you're getting your baseball legs back under you, it's kind of expected that there will be some tight backs,'' Norris said, "so you just want to come in and do your hot tub and get some hot packs on it, but I felt fine. You're body's going to adjust to getting back to throwing every five days like that.

"It's more about the up and downs, the half innings when you're sitting on the bench and staying loose and getting back up. That's where you're building up some momentum and pitch counts and getting ready for an eight-inning or a nine-inning game."

Norris doesn't appear to be too concerned about his back issue.

"I think over the course of your career you're back's going to start getting a little bit worse,'' he said. "It was pretty sore after my first spring start, but a lot better yesterday. Nothing too crazy."


Bud Norris happy with start despite yielding three runs in 2 2/3 innings


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Bud Norris was charged with three runs on four hits and three walks in 2 2/3 innings during Thursday's spring start against the Cardinals. He struck out one.

Norris loaded the bases in the first inning before working out of the jam unscathed. He threw another scoreless frame in the second inning before getting roughed up in the third inning.

The Cardinals would take a 4-1 lead in the third inning behind Mark Reynolds' three-run homer off Norris, who actually lowered his ERA from 36.00 to 17.18. He has allowed seven runs in 3 2/3 spring innings.

"I felt great," Norris said of his Thursday start, per MASNsports.com. "That's the key for me is getting out of there and just staying healthy. It's good to have some ups and downs, which I'm pretty happy about. Felt a little shaky from the windup. That's something I'm going to go work on in the next couple, but I felt good from the stretch.

"Slider was pretty good today. I threw some really good changeups. Fastball command obviously is something I need a lot more work on, but that's something we get out of camp. But coming out of there healthy was the No. 1 key for me again."
