Norris scratched as three teams pursue him

The Astros scratched Bud Norris from his scheduled start Tuesday night against the Orioles and will instead send Lucas Harrell to the mound.

Norris, who’s on the trading block, has yet been dealt and was expected to be at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in an Astros uniform later in the day. The Astros are pulling him from the game as a precaution in advance of Wednesday’s 3 p.m. CT Trade Deadline.

A source told MLB.com on Tuesday three teams were hard after Norris, including the Orioles, who are in contention in the American League East, but no deal is imminent.

Norris, 28, is 6-9 with a 3.93 ERA in 21 starts and is on pace to throw 200 innings for the first time in his career. He certainly could help plug a hole in the rotation of a contending team and the Astros are still trying to acquire as many prospects as they can.

Brian, this is very interesting about Norris, I sure hate to see him move to another team, but that is baseball, the Astros are still looking for their best objection in a pitcher that could carry the team all the way to a win, it still comes back to the backup pitchers to make the team a winning team !!                                            Ralph

       

Even though I know it’s coming…I’m still so bummed! Hate to see Bud go!

WE NEED A MLB READY CATCHER!!!!!!! ASAP! Castro just is NOT a quality catcher. CATCHER PLEASE!!!!!
