  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Rehab assignment on tap

    Norris (finger) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Norris progressed to facing live hitters Tuesday, and he's been cleared to return to game action in the minors. He's been on the IL since June 23, so he'll likely be able to rejoin the Cubs following a brief stint in Iowa.

  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Ready to face hitters

    Norris (finger) is scheduled to face rehabbing teammates Nick Madrigal (groin) and Frank Schwindel (back) in a live batting practice session Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    If all goes well during the throwing session, Norris could be cleared to head to the minors for what would presumably be a brief rehab assignment. Norris has been on the 15-day injured list since June 23 with a left middle finger strain.

  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Playing catch again

    Norris (finger) was able to play catch off flat ground Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    Norris has started up his throwing program after landing on the 15-day injured list just under a week ago with a left index finger strain. He doesn't look like he'll be in store for a long-term absence, though the Cubs may not have much urgency to rush him back. The lefty has been handling a low-leverage role out of the bullpen all season and has submitted a 7.24 ERA over his 24 appearances.

  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Out with finger injury

    The Cubs placed Norris on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a left index finger strain, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Right-hander Adrian Sampson was promoted from Triple-A Iowa to replace Norris on the 26-man active roster and serve as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen. Norris likely came away with the injury at some point during his appearance in Wednesday's 14-5 win over the Pirates, when he served up four runs -- all unearned -- on one hit and one walk over an inning of relief.

  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Allows five runs Sunday

    Norris allowed five runs on three hits and three walks across two innings of relief in Sunday's loss to the Yankees. He struck out five.

    Norris struck out a season-high five batters, but a pair of home runs turned it into an ugly outing overall. The lefty has had plenty of those this year, as he's now saddled with a 6.75 ERA across 24 innings of work. He'll remain a low-leverage option who doesn't have much fantasy appeal.

  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Overcomes Achilles soreness

    Norris (Achilles) made back-to-back relief appearances Friday and Saturday in losses to the Diamondbacks, covering 1.2 innings between the outings while allowing one earned run on one hit and two walks.

    Heading into the weekend, Norris was considered day-to-day with a right Achilles soreness, but the appearances on consecutive days imply that he's back to full strength as the Cubs prepare for a six-game week. The 29-year-old lefty has served mostly as a low-leverage reliever for Chicago this season, posting a 5.68 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 16:7 K:BB in 12.2 innings.

  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Feeling better Wednesday

    Norris (Achilles) is feeling better and could be available for Wednesday's game against the Pirates, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    Norris exited Tuesday's win over the Pirates due to right Achilles soreness after facing just one batter, but his injury doesn't appear to be a major concern. Even if he doesn't appear in Wednesday's series finale, he should be considered day-to-day for now.

  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Dealing with sore Achilles

    Norris was removed from Tuesday's game against the Pirates with right Achilles soreness, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Norris retired the only batter he faced on four pitches before exiting Tuesday's contest with the injury. The left-hander should be considered day-to-day, and it's unclear whether or not he'll require a trip to the injured list.

  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Saddled with loss in nightcap

    Norris (0-2) gave up three runs across 1.1 innings to take the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. He allowed no hits and three walks while striking out one.

    Norris didn't allow any hits, but Los Angeles still found a way to get to him. The lefty started the second inning with three straight walks before recording a strikeout. Norris then left the game, and Keegan Thompson proceeded to walk in a run before allowing three more Dodgers to cross the plate on a bases-clearing double. Norris hasn't been particularly effective this year with an 8.59 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across 7.1 innings. He made the spot start Saturday but should shift back into a relief role moving forward.

  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Starting Saturday's nightcap

    Norris will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The 28-year-old has given up four earned runs over six innings out of the bullpen this season, though he's allowed only five hits and has a strong 8:1 K:BB. The doubleheader is a result of a postponement Friday, and Norris will start a bullpen game in the nightcap while Drew Smyly (personal) starts the matinee.

  • Cubs' Daniel Norris: Signs on with Cubs

    Norris agreed to a major-league deal with the Cubs on Wednesday, Jesse Rogers of reports.

    Norris was acquired by the Brewers ahead of the 2021 trade deadline but struggled during the second half with a 6.64 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 18:15 K:BB over 20.1 innings. Overall he had a 6.16 ERA last season and has yet to find consistent success since making the transition from starter to reliever.

  • Brewers' Daniel Norris: Overcomes minor hand injury

    Norris (hand) appeared out of the bullpen in Monday's 12-0 loss to the Phillies, giving up two runs (one earned) on two hits over one inning.

    Norris sustained a cut on his throwing hand during his appearance last weekend against St. Louis, but the Brewers only stayed away for him for a couple days before he mopped up in the blowout loss to Philadelphia. Since being acquired from the Tigers on July 30, Norris has submitted a 6.91 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 14:13 K:BB in 14.1 innings.

  • Brewers' Daniel Norris: Dealing with cut on throwing hand

    Norris is dealing with a cut on his throwing hand following Friday's loss to the Cardinals, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Norris apparently dealt with a similar issue earlier in the season but hasn't been forced to spend time on the injured list. The Brewers will likely monitor his status in the near future but is currently considered day-to-day.

  • Brewers' Daniel Norris: Picks up first win with Brewers

    Norris struck out two batters in a clean sixth inning and picked up his first win as a Brewer on Wednesday.

    The opposing Giants tied Wednesday's game in the fifth inning, but Norris kept them off the scoreboard in the next frame, and he wound up with the win when the Brewers pushed a run across in the top of the seventh. Norris allowed seven earned runs over five innings in his first five appearances after being acquired by Milwaukee at the trade deadline, but he's given up zero runs -- and just one hit -- in six innings over his last five trips to the mound.

  • Brewers' Daniel Norris: Brought in by Brewers

    Norris was traded from the Tigers to the Brewers in exchange for Reese Olson on Friday, Jeff Passan of reports.

    The 28-year-old lefty has struggled to a 5.89 ERA this season, though his underlying numbers suggest he should be more useful than that down the stretch. He's combined an above-average 25.5 percent strikeout rate and 48.5 percent groundball rate with a slightly sub-par 9.6 percent walk rate, leading to a 3.78 FIP and 3.54 xFIP. He picked up his first career save Tuesday, though he's unlikely to get many more in Milwaukee with Josh Hader as his new teammate.

  • Tigers' Daniel Norris: Earns first save

    Norris pitched a clean 11th inning to record the save in Tuesday's extra-innings win over the Twins.

    The Tigers rallied from down 5-1 to tie the game in the ninth inning, then took the lead in the 11th. With Michael Fulmer and Jose Cisnero having pitched earlier in the game, and Gregory Soto likely unavailable after logging 1.2 innings Monday, Detroit turned to Norris for the save. The lefty delivered a clean inning for his first career MLB save. Fulmer, Cisnero and Soto should see most of the save opportunities moving forward, which will push Norris back to more of a middle-relief role.

  • Tigers' Daniel Norris: Earns first win of 2021

    Norris (1-3) struck out two in two perfect innings to earn the win in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

    Norris entered Saturday's matinee after Jose Urena exited with groin tightness, and he held the Twins without a baserunner in the fourth and fifth innings. The left-hander had posted a 10.61 ERA and 2.46 WHIP in 9.1 innings across his 11 appearances leading up to the All-Star break, but he was effective in his first appearance of the second half and earned his first win of the 2021 campaign.
