Tigers' Daniel Norris: Melts down in 11th inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris (0-2) allowed five runs (four earned) on three hits and two walks in one inning, taking the loss versus Seattle on Wednesday.

Norris was on the mound for all of Seattle's five-run rally in the top of the 11th, and Detroit wasn't able to cover the damage. It's been a difficult year for the southpaw, who has a 6.65 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 25:10 K:BB across 23 innings. He's added five holds and two blown saves, but his inconsistent pitching will likely keep him from earning more high-leverage work.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Hit hard in loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris (0-1) allowed four earned runs on four hits across 1.2 innings to take the loss in Sunday's game against Cleveland. He struck out one.

Norris came on in the sixth inning and allowed an inherited runner to score to make it 3-2 in favor of Detroit, but the lefty really ran into trouble in the seventh. He started the frame by allowing three straight hits and two runs, then was tagged for a two-run home run by Jordan Luplow with one out that made it 6-3 in favor of Cleveland. Norris was effective in long relief for the Tigers last season, posting a 3.25 ERA and 1.16 WHIP across 27.2 innings, so he should be able to bounce back from the rough outing.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Earns Opening Day hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris worked around a hit and walk to pitch 1.1 scoreless innings and record a hold in Thursday's win over Cleveland. He struck out one.

Norris got the last out of the seventh, then worked the eighth before handing the game over to Gregory Soto. A former starter, Norris pitched multiple innings in all but one of his 14 appearances in 2020, and he kicked off 2021 by giving the Tigers valuable length in a game they won by a run. That makes the lefty a valuable option for new manager A.J. Hinch, though it won't translate into much fantasy value outside of leagues that count holds.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Likely to stick in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris will likely fill a long-relief role for the Tigers this season, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

After dealing with injuries the past few seasons and a bout with COVID-19 in 2020, Norris settled in as a primary pitcher last year, posting a 2.77 ERA across 13 multi-inning relief appearances. A similar role seems to be on tap for the lefty in 2021, which curtails his fantasy appeal but could make him a solid real-life option for the Tigers, especially as they look to monitor the workloads of starters such as Michael Fulmer, Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Signs deal before arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris and the Tigers agreed to terms on a one-year, $3.475 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jason Beck of reports.

Norris had the best season of his seven-year career in 2020, posting a 3.25 ERA and 1.16 WHIP, though it came in a small sample of just 27.2 innings. That ERA was backed by a solid combination of a 24.1 percent strikeout rate, 6.0 percent walk rate and 55.7 percent groundball rate, setting him up to be a useful member of the Tigers' pitching staff in 2021.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Shines behind Fulmer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris tossed 2.1 innings in relief in Tuesday's 12-1 win over the Brewers, giving up a run on four hits while striking out five.

As per usual, starter Michael Fulmer was limited to three innings in his start, so Norris came on in relief to piggyback him. While he needed 61 pitches to record his seven outs, Norris overwhelmed Milwaukee's hitters, with his lone mistake coming when Christian Yelich took him deep for a solo home run. Norris has taken well to a multi-inning role out of the Detroit bullpen, posting a 1.72 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 17:1 K:BB across 15.2 innings over his last six appearances.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Earns win out of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris (2-1) pitched 3.2 scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday against Cleveland. He allowed two hits and no walks while striking out four.

Norris entered in the third inning in relief of rookie Tarik Skubal, and he proceeded to shut down Cleveland. Norris has been good lately, as he's allowed just two earned runs across his last four appearances, a span of 11.1 innings. The lefty has whittled his ERA down to 2.77 in the process. Norris should continue pitching in long relief for the Tigers, though he's capable of starting if a need arises.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Bumped from rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris will remain in the bullpen for the foreseeable future after the Tigers announced that pitching prospects Tarik Skubal and Casey Mize would be called up to make starts Tuesday and Wednesday, Jason Beck of reports.

Norris started in his season debut Aug. 2 and worked as a primary pitcher behind Michael Fulmer on Aug. 10 before moving to the bullpen ahead of this past weekend's series with the Indians. Though Tyler Alexander had replaced him as the piggyback option behind Fulmer, Norris looked like he might be a candidate to re-enter the rotation after Ivan Nova (triceps) was moved to the injured list Saturday. However, with the Tigers sitting at 9-10 entering play Monday and still firmly in the mix for a spot in the expanded postseason, the team brass is evidently hoping the two young hurlers may aid a surprise playoff push. Norris should still be one of the next men up if a rotation spot opens at any point, but he may actually offer more fantasy value as a multi-inning weapon out of the bullpen.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Next appearance remains unknown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris will no longer be the team's primary pitcher Sunday against Cleveland as the Tigers announced Saturday that Tyler Alexander will assume that role instead, Evan Woodbery of reports.

Norris worked as the primary pitcher behind Michael Fulmer last Monday and was effective, throwing two scoreless innings while allowing just one hit and striking out two batters. However, he made a relief appearance Friday, which may have impacted Manager Ron Gardenhire's decision to use him on short rest. It's unclear what's in store for Norris in terms of how he may be used moving forward. The Tigers have a lot of questions in their rotation that need to be answered in the coming days.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Should be ready to pitch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris should be ready to pitch Sunday despite entering Friday's game as a reliever, Jason Beck of reports.

Although Norris is scheduled to serve as the primary pitcher behind Michael Fulmer in Sunday's contest, he was brought in during the fourth inning of Friday's loss. He threw 32 pitches over 1.2 innings, but manager Ron Gardenhire said after the game that he should still be ready to make his scheduled appearance Sunday.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Earns win Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings to earn the win Monday against the White Sox. He allowed one hit and struck out two.

After Michael Fulmer opened the game with three scoreless innings, Norris followed as the primary pitcher and continued to keep Chicago off the board. The lefty was recently bumped from the rotation in favor of Tyler Alexander, and he figures to remain in a tandem with Fulmer for the time being. However, Norris could pitch his way back into the rotation if he performs well in his new role.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Will work as primary pitcher Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris is slated to work as the primary pitcher following opener Michael Fulmer in Monday's game against the White Sox, Jason Beck of reports.

Norris was recently bumped from the rotation in favor of Tyler Alexander, and now the former will have to settle for this piggyback arrangement with Fulmer. Manager Ron Gardenhire said he'd like to get about three innings out of each pitcher Monday. Norris had a delayed start to his season due to coronavirus testing protocols and he's made just one appearance so far, allowing two earned runs in 1.2 innings of work last Sunday against the Reds.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Loses rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris will pitch out of the bullpen going forward, Jason Beck of reports.

Norris' start to the season was delayed due to COVID-19, and he looked poor in his lone appearance, giving up two runs while allowing six baserunners and recording just five outs in a start against the Reds on Sunday. He's expected to be used in a piggyback role with Michael Fulmer for now, with Tyler Alexander taking his spot in the rotation.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Coughs up two runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris (0-1) yielded two runs on four hits and two walks in 1.2 innings Sunday, taking the loss in the second game of the doubleheader against the Reds.

Norris showed obvious signs of rust in his first appearance of the 2020 season. He needed 54 pitches to record just five outs and allowed six baserunners in the process. He'll look for better results in a road start against the Pirates on Friday.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris was activated off the injured list ahead of his start in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds.

The Tigers had already confirmed the 27-year-old as the starter for Game 2, but it's now official after the roster move. Norris missed most of summer camp due to COVID-19 protocols but is reportedly stretched out to about 70 pitches, so he could cover at least four or five innings during the seven-inning contest.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Slated to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris will start Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds.

Norris missed nearly all of camp due to COVID-19 protocols but has been building up his workload at the Tigers' alternate training site. The southpaw was expected to need one more session ahead of joining the major-league club, but he'll be in line to start in Sunday's seven-inning contest. If all goes well, Norris should reclaim his spot in the rotation going forward.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Continues to throw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris (not injury related) threw 50-60 pitches at the Tigers' secondary training site in Toledo on Tuesday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Norris missed nearly the entirety of summer camp due to COVID-19 protocols, so he's been going through the buildup process in Toledo while the regular season gets underway elsewhere. He's expected to need at least one more session at the secondary site before being activated.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Throws bullpen Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris (not injury related) felt good after throwing a bullpen session Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

Norris was cleared to rejoin the team Tuesday after clearing the COVID-19 protocol, and he was able to get on the mound right away. The southpaw was able to maintain a throwing program while he was away from the team, and he's reportedly built up to 65 pitches already. He'll throw a simulated game Thursday, and if all goes well, he could be ready to return to game action soon after.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Cleared for workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers announced Tuesday that Norris (illness) has been cleared to rejoin the team for workouts.

Though Norris has fully cleared all COVID-19 protocols, Detroit will still need to formally activate him from the injured list before he's eligible to appear in games. Since Norris has been absent throughout summer camp, he'll likely require at least a week to get his arm conditioned for game action. Due to the time Norris has missed, Detroit may not be willing to prepare him for a traditional starting role, especially if Michael Fulmer (elbow) is ready to join the rotation shortly after Opening Day. Norris could still be a candidate to work as a tandem starter, a role in which he found some success late in the 2019 season.

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Still uncertain on return date
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire said it's unclear if Norris (illness) will be able to rejoin the team in the next few days, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Gardenhire said on Thursday that he thought Norris could possibly rejoin the team over the weekend, but the lefty remains in the COVID-19 protocol. "I'm not for sure if he's gonna show up in the next couple of days," Gardenhire said. "I'm not positive." The Tigers start their season on Friday in Cincinnati, and given the time he's already missed, it's looking increasingly unlikely that Norris will be on the Opening Day roster.
