Ausmus: Tigers SP Daniel Norris to be out at least four weeks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2015) Brad Ausmus has indicated that the oblique injury that landed Tigers starter Daniel Norris on the disabled list could knock him out for the season.

"The strain looks to be a little bit worse than even initially diagnosed," Ausmus told MLive.com. "We're probably looking at a minimum of four weeks."

That makes the most optimistic timetable for his return Sept. 16, which would leave him little time to recuperate and get back on the mound.

Norris, who was the key piece in the trade that sent David Price to Toronto, had been getting clobbered before going down. He allowed 13 runs on 19 hits in his last 14 1/3 innings after a strong debut start in Baltimore.


Right oblique strain to have Tigers SP Daniel Norris on DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2015) Brad Ausmus has declared that Tigers starter Daniel Norris will be placed on the 15-day disabled list after leaving his outing Wednesday with right oblique strain, the Detroit Free Press has reported. He is scheduled for an MRI on Thursday.

Norris was taken out of the game in the fifth inning. It marked only his fourth start since his promotion from Triple-A Toledo.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2015) Tigers pitcher Daniel Norris suffered a right oblique strain which forced him to leave Wednesday's start against the Cubs early, reports MLive.com.

Norris allowed three runs on four hits over 4 1/3 innings before being lifted. He also struck out six and walked one. He left with a 7-3 lead but did not last five innings and will receive a no-decision.


Tigers SP Daniel Norris takes no-decision in Wednesday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2015) Despite producing a quality start in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Royals, Tigers pitcher Daniel Norris received a no-decision for his effort.

Norris allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits over 6 1/3 innings of work. He also struck out two and walked three. His ERA now stands at 4.24.

It was his eighth start of the season and he now has three quality starts.


Tigers SP Daniel Norris gets roughed up by Red Sox on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/7/2015) After a stellar first start with his new team, Tigers pitcher Daniel Norris had a rough time against the Red Sox on Friday. The young left-hander allowed five runs on nine hits over just 3 1/3 innings, as Boston topped Detroit 7-2. Norris needed 83 pitches to record 10 outs, and never really had much working in this one.

Norris (2-2, 4.24 ERA) gave up two runs in the very first inning, and then allowed a two-run home run to David Ortiz in the third. 

Norris was coming off one of his finest starts as a big-leaguer his last time out, as he allowed one run over 7 1/3 innings against the Orioles. Friday was just his big-league second start since the end of April.


SP Daniel Norris shines in debut with Tigers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2015) Daniel Norris certainly made the most of his debut with the Tigers on Sunday. He took an early 3-0 lead and cruised to a victory over Baltimore.

Norris allowed just one run on four hits in seven innings with one walk and five strikeouts. His lone hiccup landed over the fence in the fourth, courtesy of Chris Davis. He retired the next 12 batters he faced.

The left-hander was making his first major league appearance since April 30.


Daniel Norris joining Tigers rotation; Matt Boyd off to Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2015) Daniel Norris will make his Tigers debut Sunday against the Orioles, general manager Dave Dombrowski said.

He added the decision on who would take David Price's spot in the rotation came down to Norris and Matt Boyd, who was also picked up in a Thursday trade with the Blue Jays.

Boyd will join the rotation at Triple-A Toledo, Dombrowski said.


Tigers trade standout SP David Price to Blue Jays


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2015) Stud southpaw David Price has been traded from the Tigers to the Blue Jays, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Toronto sent three young left-handers to Detroit, including premier prospect Daniel Norris, as well as Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt.

Price is enjoying arguably his best season for disappointing Detroit. He is 9-4 and, if maintained, his 2.53 ERA would be the best of his career.

The 22-year-old Norris has made five starts for Toronto this season and owns a 1-1 record and 3.86 ERA.


Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris might make spot start before break


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos told reporters he will be in attendance for Daniel Norris' start for Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday. He added Norris could put himself back on the radar with a third straight solid outing and suggested Norris might make a spot start before the All-Star break.

Norris is 1-7 with a 3.72 ERA in 10 starts for Buffalo following his demotion after five April starts with Toronto. He has struck out 16 batters in his last 11 1/3 innings.


Blue Jays want consistency from SP Daniel Norris at Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) 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
(5/4/2015) 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
(5/4/2015) 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
(5/1/2015) 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
(4/30/2015) 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.


Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris allows one run in seven IP in no-decision


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/25/2015) Blue Jays starter Daniel Norris yielded one run on five hits and struck out seven in seven innings on Saturday but ended up with a no-decision against the Rays. 

Norris' only hiccup was a first-inning RBI double from Evan Longoria. 

"It was weird, something just clicked after the second inning, kind of felt back to normal," said Norris to MLB.com. "I think it was just trying to see how my arm was going to feel, and I was trying to, again, overcompensate with my body.

"Then coming out for the third, I just forced myself to stay back and almost kind of forced my arm to speed up back to normal, and sure enough it did. That was big for me."

Norris' next start is scheduled for Thursday in Cleveland.


Tests reveal Blue Jays' Daniel Norris (arm) is fine


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays' Daniel Norris says he is at 'tail end' of 'dead-arm phase'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) 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.

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.
