Insight: The Orioles are hopeful Norris (7-5, 3.62 ERA) will be back after his 15 days are up. His absence should open up a spot in the rotation for Kevin Gausman (3-1, 2.74 ERA), who has been bouncing between Baltimore and Triple-A Norfolk all season.

Description: Orioles starter Bud Norris left Saturday's start after feeling tightness in his right groin. SOURCE: Brittany Ghiroli, MLB.com
Insight: Norris has a decent ERA (3.62 ERA) but his strikeout totals have been a little underwhelming (60 K's in 87 IP). It's unknown if he'll be ready for Friday's start against Tampa Bay.
6/9/2014 9:57:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Bud Norris allowed just three hits and struck out six over eight scoreless innings Monday against Boston.

5/17/2014 9:53:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Bud Norris was the tough-luck loser Saturday at Kansas City.
Insight: Royals starter Danny Duffy was perfect through 6 2/3 and the O's were shut out, so Norris lost despite allowing one earned run on four hits in 7 1/3 innings. The 29-year-old has a 3.58 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP this season, but he's fanned just 33 batters in 50 1/3 innings. Norris had a K/9 of 8.5 from 2010-13, though it came with a 4.35 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.
5/14/2014 3:49:00 PM
Description: According to MLB.com's Jason Beck, Orioles right-hander Bud Norris will not be suspended for throwing at Torii Hunter on Monday night.
Insight: Norris was tossed from the game but it didn't appear to be intentional. Justin Verlander got his two cents in by throwing one behind Nelson Cruz in Wednesday's matinee. Both sides were warned but Verlander was allowed to stay in the game. Norris (2-3, 3.98 ERA) will make his next start Saturday against Kansas City.

Description: Orioles starter Bud Norris was ejected in the eighth inning Monday after hitting Detroit outfielder Torii Hunter with a pitch. SOURCE: Chris Iott, MLive
Insight: Hunter probably should have been the one ejected as he escalated things by walking toward Norris and then shouting into the Orioles' dugout. Norris (7 2/3 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 7 K's, 2 BB) could get fined but we doubt this will result in a suspension.

Description: Baltimore righthander Bud Norris could be asked to close next season. SOURCE: Eduardo A. Encina, Baltimore Sun
Insight: The O's traded closer Jim Johnson to Oakland earlier this week. Norris would have more fantasy value as a ninth inning man than he would as a starter but it's probably not going to happen. Tommy Hunter throws harder and has better stuff than Norris. Plus, the O's need Norris in the rotation now that Scott Feldman has signed with Houston.
9/22/2013 12:45:00 PM
Description: According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, Bud Norris is the likely starter for the Orioles' game Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Jason Hammel is the other option being considered. Norris has been dealing with some elbow soreness and hasn't started since Sept. 8, though he was forced into action for 2 1/3 innings Friday in an 18-inning game against the Rays.
9/21/2013 9:57:00 AM
Description: O's righthander Bud Norris was charged with the loss Friday against Tampa Bay.
Insight: The game ended at 2:05 in the morning. Norris (2 1/3 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 K's, 2 BB) was supposed to start Saturday but now that's obviously not going to happen. With Baltimore's bullpen running on fumes after Friday's 18-inning marathon, the O's need a huge peformance from Miguel Gonzalez (10-7, 3.92 ERA) on Saturday.
9/15/2013 10:51:00 AM
Description: Orioles righthander Bud Norris is hoping to return from an elbow injury on either Friday or Saturday. SOURCE: Baltimore Sun
Insight: He'd be pitching against the Rays, a team he's only faced three times in his career (1-1, 4.24 ERA). The return of Norris will likely push Jason Hammel (7-8, 5.12) back to the bullpen.
9/12/2013 6:21:00 PM
Description: Bud Norris, who is missing his scheduled start Friday because of elbow discomfort, is hoping to only miss one start. SOURCE: MASN

9/11/2013 10:53:00 PM
Description: The Orioles will skip Bud Norris in the rotation due to elbow discomfort, according to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com.
Insight: Norris was scheduled for Friday. The team thinks skipping him in the rotation will help calm down his soreness. Jason Hammel will start in his place.
9/2/2013 9:15:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Bud Norris is 4-1 with a 4.28 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP in 40 innings since coming over from Houston.
Insight: Norris had his best start as an Oriole Monday versus Cleveland, firing seven innings, striking out eight batters and allowing one run on four hits with one walk, but his high WHIP is troubling.
