      Bud Norris: Cut loose by Phillies

      Bud Norris was released by the Phillies on Thursday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.Norris failed to earn a spot in the Phillies' bullpen after joining the team in January as a non-roster invitee. The veteran reliever didn't pitch last season due to forearm issues but posted a 3.59 ERA and 67:21 K:BB in 57.2 innings with the Cardinals in 2018.

      Phillies' Bud Norris: Included in player pool

      Bud Norris will be part of the Philadelphia Phillies' 60-man player pool this season.Norris joined the Phillies as a non-roster invitee back in January, hoping to prove his health and return to the big leagues after missing the 2019 season due to forearm issues. He isn't on the team's 40-man roster but could still play a role at some point, though it's unlikely to be a major one.

      Phillies' Bud Norris: Signs minors deal with Phillies

      Bud Norris joined the Philadelphia Phillies on a minor-league deal Tuesday, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.Norris converted to relief in 2017 and saved 47 games over the next two seasons. He didn't throw a pitch in 2019, though, as he was released by the Blue Jays in early April while battling forearm issues and never signed another deal. That's not a good sign regarding Norris' health heading into his age-35 season, but the signing is nevertheless a low-risk move by the Phillies.

      Bud Norris: Won't join Nationals

      Bud Norris' (forearm) ongoing contract negotiations with the Nationals have fallen apart and the team has turned its attention to other relievers, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.After receiving his release from the Blue Jays earlier this month, Norris looked to be an ideal fit for a Nationals squad lacking in reliable setup options ahead of closer Sean Doolittle. Norris' representatives appeared to come to terms with Washington on a deal two days earlier, but the Nationals weren't satisfied with the reports they received regarding the right-hander's forearm injury. According to Heyman, Washington felt Norris was 4-to-5 weeks away from being ready to contribute at the major-league level, so the 34-year-old could linger on the open market for a while longer until he approaches full health.

      Bud Norris: Nationals deal not yet finalized

      Bud Norris (forearm) and the Nationals do not yet have a deal, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.There were reports earlier in the day that the two sides had an agreement, pending a physical, but recent reports suggest the two sides aren't quite at that point. The hang-up appears to be over Norris' health, as he battled forearm soreness during camp. The delay may mean that Norris is still not close to being ready for game action.

      Nationals' Bud Norris: Reaches deal with Nationals

      Bud Norris (forearm) agreed to a minor-league deal with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday, pending a physical, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.Norris had been in camp with the Blue Jays but battled some forearm soreness and reduced velocity. He was released in early April. It's unclear how much time he'll need in the minors to build up his arm strength (or recover from the forearm issue, if it's still a problem). The Nationals could certainly use all the help they can get in their bullpen, as their unit has recorded a 10.17 ERA so far this season.

      Bud Norris (forearm) was released from his minor-league deal with the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.Norris has been battling forearm soreness since March 21 and has no timetable for his return, so the Blue Jays opted to part ways with the veteran right-hander. The 34-year-old threw only three innings during spring training and was exhibiting decreased velocity.

      Blue Jays' Bud Norris: Remains without timetable

      Bud Norris has no timetable to return from forearm soreness, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.Norris remains on a minor-league contract, so he hasn't been placed on the injured list, meaning he could theoretically join the roster at any point. That point doesn't appear to be imminent, however, in part because his velocity has been sitting around 90-91 mph rather than the mid-90s heat he's typically capable of. That could simply be caused by his late arrival at camp, though when combined with an arm injury, there could be reason to be concerned.

      Blue Jays' Bud Norris: Misses out on roster

      Bud Norris (forearm) isn't included on the Toronto Blue Jays' roster ahead of their season opener Thursday against the Tigers, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.Norris remains with the organization as a non-roster player and should be in good shape to have his contract selected once he gets past the bout of forearm fatigue he experienced late in spring training. The right-hander was able to complete a bullpen session Tuesday, so he should be ready to test himself against live hitters in the coming days.
