Norris heading to the Majors

The Astros are preparing to call up top pitching prospect Bud Norris, who is 4-9 with a 2.63 ERA in 19 starts at Triple-A Round Rock. He will be in uniform at Wrigley Field on Wednesday.

Astros starter Roy Oswalt left Tuesday’s game with a lower back strain and the club announced it would call up Doug Brocail to join the team Wednesday. It’s unclear how Norris fits into picture.

Norris was ranked as the No. 2 prospect in the system prior to this season by Baseball America, which rated him as having the best fastball in the system among Minor Leaguers. He went 3-8 with a 4.05 ERA last year at Double-A Corpus Christi and was impressive in the Arizona Fall League, posting a 1.89 ERA with one in 12 games.

Should of happened before the Astros went to Chicago.

norris had better live up to the family name.

bud norris was once hit with a piece of a shattered bat. he shrugged the blow off and threw the debris behind him, killing a pelican. he was playing in iowa.

I hope Norris gets the call!!! That’d be great and he deserves it!
