Bud Norris allowed four earned runs in two innings Saturday as the Orioles fell to the Cubs.

Norris was not allowed to go back out to the mound after a lengthy rain delay, so his day ended at 58 pitches. He is now 11-8 on the season with a 3.91 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. A home matchup with the Rays is next.
Aug 23 - 8:42 PM

Bud Norris yielded only two runs over seven innings against the White Sox on Monday en route to his 11th win.

Norris held the Pale Hose to just three hits while walking none and striking out five. Both runs scored in the seventh, presumably as the right-hander tired. The right-hander is sitting on a 3.69 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 96/38 K/BB ratio. He'll toe the rubber next Sunday against the Cubs at Wrigley.
Aug 18 - 11:19 PM

Bud Norris left with one out in the sixth, but earned his ninth win after allowing two runs to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Both Mark Buehrle and the Jays' bullpen were leaking, so Norris didn't have to do too much to walk away with the win. The right-hander allowed seven hits -- including a two-run home run to Colby Rasmus -- while walking two and striking out six. Norris, with a 3.68 ERA and an 86/37 K/BB ratio, will attempt to continue his fine season on Sunday at home when he takes on the Cardinals.
Aug 5 - 10:57 PM

Bud Norris took a tough-luck no-decision on Thursday, shutting the Angels out over seven innings as the Orioles eventually lost 1-0 in 13 innings.

Norris matched starter Tyler Skaggs and the Angels' bullpen with zero after zero, but the conflict wouldn't be resolved until the 13th inning. Norris scattered eight hits, seven of which were singles, over his seven frames along with a walk and four strikeouts. Now with a 3.69 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and an 80/35 K/BB ratio, the right-hander will look ahead to his next opponent, the Blue Jays, whom he will face in Toronto next Tuesday.
Jul 31 - 11:54 PM

In his return to the rotation, Bud Norris allowed two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Monday against the Angels.

Demoted prior to the All-Star break to keep him on a regular pitching schedule, Norris walked two and allowed eight hits, but he also struck out eight. The right-hander struggled in his one-start sojourn in Double-A, so it was nice to see a quick return to form at the game's highest level. Norris (8-6, 3.78 ERA) stays out West next time around, taking on the Mariners this weekend in Seattle.
Jul 22 - 1:18 AM

Orioles recalled RHP Bud Norris from Double-A Bowie.

Norris was sent down prior to the All-Star break in order to keep pitching. He'll make his return to the Orioles' rotation on Monday against the Angels. Norris holds a 3.96 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 15 starts this season.
Jul 21 - 7:08 PM

Bud Norris allowed three earned runs over 4 1/3 innings Monday in a start at Double-A Bowie.

Norris walked five and allowed four hits, but he also struck out seven. The right-hander was optioned to Double-A Bowie last Thursday so that he could get in work over the All-Star break after missing close to three weeks with a groin strain. Norris is expected to return to the Orioles' rotation next Monday to face the Angels.
Jul 14 - 12:47 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Bud Norris to Double-A Bowie.

The move looks strange on the surface, but Norris has an option remaining and the Orioles don't want him to have a long layoff between starts with the All-Star break coming up. He figures to make one start in Double-A before being called back up. He's eligible to return on July 20 against the Athletics.
Jul 10 - 5:59 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that Bud Norris is not an option to start on short rest Sunday against the Yankees.

Showalter previously floated the idea after Norris threw just four innings on Wednesday, but that's no longer an option. However, it's possible he could be available in relief.
Jul 10 - 4:53 PM

Making his first start since June 21, Bud Norris struggled, allowing five runs in four innings in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

Norris showed a little rust, as two of the six hits he allowed were solo home runs to Wilson Ramos and Ian Desmond. He walked one while striking out only two. Norris, now 7-6, has a 3.96 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a 62/29 K/BB ratio. The right-hander will have to take on the Athletics on the road to kick off the second half of the season following the All-Star break.
Jul 9 - 10:28 PM

Orioles activated RHP Bud Norris from the 15-day disabled list.

Norris will rejoin the Orioles' rotation on Tuesday against the Nationals, assuming the weather holds off. The right-hander holds a 3.62 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 60/28 K/BB ration in 87 innings this year.
Jul 8 - 6:44 PM

Bud Norris (groin) is listed as the Orioles' starter for Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

The right-hander will face off against Washington's Doug Fister. Norris has been sidelined since June 22 with a right groin strain. He owns a cool 3.62 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 60/28 K/BB ration in 87 innings this year.
Jul 7 - 3:20 PM

Bud Norris (groin) is expected to rejoin the Orioles' rotation on Wednesday.

That's assuming he feels good following Saturday's two-inning simulated game. Norris has been sidelined for the last two weeks with a right groin strain but has said in recent days that he's feeling fine. He's put up a 3.62 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 60/28 K/BB ration in 87 innings this season for Baltimore.
Jul 6 - 8:56 AM

Bud Norris (groin) threw a simulated game on Saturday.

Norris, who has been on the disabled list since June 22 with a right groin strain, went two innings in the successful evening workout. He is expected to rejoin the Orioles' starting rotation on Monday.
