Norris agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Braves on Wednesday. The 30-year-old received a major-league contract but will take a steep pay cut after making $8.8 million last season. Norris was clobbered to the tune of a 7.06 ERA in 18 appearances (11 starts) for the Orioles last season before being released, and then pitched exclusively out of the bullpen after signing with the Padres in August. It's uncertain what role he will take on with Atlanta, but it's at least possible he could return to the rotation for the rebuilding Braves.
Padres pitcher Bud Norris exited Thursday's game with a right groin strain. Norris threw just 12 pitches on the night, and was replaced by Nick Vincent. It's unclear how severe the injury is, but groins tend to be an issue that takes a bit of time before returning. Considering his role as a middle reliever, it shouldn't have much impact in fantasy leagues on the whole.
The Padres announced that they have signed right-hander Bud Norris to a Major League contract on Tuesday. Norris was designated for assignment by the Orioles on July 31 and was released on Saturday. In 18 games (11 starts) with Baltimore, Norris was 2-9 with a 7.06 ERA. It is not yet known if Norris will pitch out of the bullpen or the rotation with the Padres.
Former standout starter Bud Norris has been releaseed by the Orioles, the Baltimore Sun is reporting. Norris, who was designated for assignment last week, was coming off a 15-8 season in which he compiled a 3.65 ERA. But he has been a mess this year with a 2-9 record and 7.06 ERA. He has allowed 84 hits in just 66 1/3 innings.
Orioles pitcher Bud Norris was designated for assignment Friday to clear a spot on the 25- and 40-man rosters for outfielder Gerardo Parra, who was acquired in a trade with the Brewers. The 30-year-old right-hander began the season in the rotation before being moved to the bullpen in early July. He went 2-7 with a 6.79 ERA in 11 starts and went 0-2 with an 8.44 ERA in seven relief appearances.
