Manager Mike Shildt said Norris is unlikely to pitch again this weekend after leaving Friday's game with left hamstring tightness, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. As expected, Norris has likely pitched for the last time this season barring a postseason run for the Cardinals. Since the club would have to win both games this weekend against the Cubs in addition to a pair of losses by the Dodgers just to force a Game 163, it looks like the right-hander's season has come to an end.
Norris was taken out of Friday's game with left hamstring tightness, Jim Hayes of Fox Sports Midwest reports. As expected, Norris is dealing with a hamstring injury after facing two batters during Friday's relief appearance. Barring a a trip to the postseason, it's likely that we've seen the last of Norris in 2018. Manager Mike Shildt will likely discuss the reliever's status within the next 24 hours prior to Saturday's matinee.
Norris was removed from Friday's outing against the Cubs with an apparent injury, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Per Brian Stull of WGNU 920 AM, Norris appeared to be reaching for his left hamstring, though the pitcher noted that he's been dealing with a hip issue recently, so the exact nature of his latest injury isn't known just yet. Expect an update on his status in the coming hours.
Norris (finger) is expected to be available for Friday's game against the Giants, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports. Norris exited Sunday's contest against the Dodgers due to a blister on his right hand and hasn't pitched since. He tested the injury during a game of catch prior to series opener and didn't appear to have any issues. Although Norris recently lost his role as the closer, the Cardinals will likely deploy him in high-leverage situations moving forward.
Norris (finger) is unavailable Tuesday against the Braves, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Norris will remain sidelined for a second straight game as he continues to nurse a blister on his right middle finger. Consider the reliever day-to-day. Jordan Hicks and Dakota Hudson will handle setup duties in his absence.
