Bud Norris will make another rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Norfolk.
After going 0-2 with a 15.26 ERA in his first two rehab outings, the Orioles decided Norris would need at least one more start before coming off the disabled list. He battled bronchitis earlier this month but that's well behind him. Mike Wright will likely lose his spot in the rotation when Norris returns to the big leagues. May 30 - 7:11 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Bud Norris (bronchitis) will be used as a starter when he returns from the disabled list.

Norris has already made a pair of rehab starts and could be back in the big leagues by next week. Showalter said he will not entertain the possibility of a six-man rotation. None of this is good news for Mike Wright, who struggled last time out against the White Sox (5 IP, 6 H, 3 ER).
May 30 - 4:30 PM

The Orioles haven't decided whether Bud Norris (bronchitis) will make another rehab start.

Norris allowed four runs in five innings on Wednesday for Double-A Bowie, but manager Buck Showalter said the righty pitched really well the first three frames. Mike Wright wasn't as good Thursday as he was his first two times out, which could potentially open the door for Norris rejoining the rotation next week.

Bud Norris (illness) will make another rehab start with Double-A Bowie on Wednesday.

He had been scheduled for just one rehab outing, but plans changed after Norris was drilled for nine runs on 12 hits over 2 2/3 innings for Triple-A Norfolk on Friday. As well as Mike Wright has pitched, Norris might not have a rotation spot waiting for him when he returns.
May 24 - 8:53 AM

Bud Norris (illness) was absolutely destroyed in his minor league rehab start with Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, allowing nine runs on 12 hits over 2 2/3 innings.

The veteran right-hander threw just 47 of his 72 pitches for strikes on the day. While he is eligible to return from the disabled list on May 26, the Orioles may choose to extend his rehab assignment after this debacle combined with his early-season struggles.

Bud Norris (illness) will make a minor league rehab start on May 22 at Triple-A Norfolk.

Norris has been out since May 11 with a case of bronchitis. If his rehab debut goes well, he could be cleared to rejoin the Orioles' rotation immediately after.
May 19 - 4:33 PM

Orioles placed RHP Bud Norris on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 11, with bronchitis.

It's an ailment he's dealt with for the better part of a week and the O's have decided it's best just to shut him down for a while. He'll be eligible for activation on May 26 and could be ready to go at that time.
May 18 - 7:46 PM

Bud Norris (bronchitis) could be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Norris has been battling a case of bronchitis since last week and has lost some strength to the illness. Tyler Wilson is on the taxi squad for the Orioles and could be officially recalled early this week.
May 18 - 3:14 PM

Bud Norris (bronchitis) won't start Sunday against the Angels.

Norris lost some weight from the illness and won't be ready to pitch again until early next week. Chris Tillman, who is dealing with back stiffness, won't be available either. With those two sidelined, the Orioles will likely turn to Mike Wright to pitch Sunday's series finale. The underachieving Norris has only thrown two quality starts in six outings this season.
May 16 - 4:52 PM

The Orioles believe that Bud Norris has come down with bronchitis.

The ailment will keep Norris out for Saturday's scheduled start. Ubaldo Jimenez will go in his place. Norris could toe the rubber on Sunday if he's feeling better, but if the bronchitis still has him feeling low, Chris Tillman might take that start.
May 15 - 9:52 PM

Bud Norris could be scratched from Saturday's start against the Angels due to illness.

He was also under the weather a week ago and has had a recurrence of symptoms. Norris will be checked out later Friday and an update on his status could be available then. The Orioles would push up Ubaldo Jimenez to Saturday and Chris Tillman to Sunday if Norris can't go.
May 15 - 4:40 PM

Bud Norris took his fourth loss of the season, serving up four runs in 3 1/3 innings, as the Orioles dropped Sunday's game 6-2 to the Yankees.

Norris managed to blank the Yankees through three innings, but they rallied for a four-run fourth inning to chase the right-hander from the game. He gave up six hits and walked three while striking out two. Norris doesn't look like the same pitcher he was last year, as his strikeout rate is down and his walk rate is up. He carries a 9.88 ERA with a 1.87 WHIP and an 18/13 K/BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings. Norris matches up with the Angels at home next.
May 10 - 4:27 PM

Bud Norris (illness) will start as scheduled on Sunday versus the Yankees.

Norris was sent home Saturday with an illness, but he's feeling fine Sunday. The righty sports a disappointing 9.75 ERA this season.
May 10 - 10:42 AM

Bud Norris is dealing with an illness and may miss Sunday's start against the Yankees.

Norris has pitched a little better lately but his ERA is still an embarrassing 9.75. Most fantasy owners have probably moved on by now. With no obvious replacement in line, it's unclear who would make the start if Norris can't go on Sunday.
May 9 - 4:28 PM

Bud Norris had a decent start on Tuesday, allowing three runs in seven innings, but took the loss against the Mets.

All three runs came in the fourth inning when Daniel Murphy singled in a run and Kevin Plawecki doubled in another two. Norris allowed seven hits and a walk while striking out four. Norris badly needed Tuesday's outing, as it lowered his ERA to a still-ugly 9.75 with a 1.75 WHIP and a 16/10 K/BB ratio in 24 innings over five starts. He'll look for more positive results his next time out, which will come against the Yankees in the Bronx.
May 5 - 9:38 PM
