Guardians' Daniel Norris: Inks MiLB deal with Cleveland
Norris signed a minor-league deal with the Guardians on Friday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
After being released by the Reds on Monday, the 29-year-old reliever will get a shot with Cleveland and report directly to minor-league camp. Norris put up a 5.22 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 58.2 major-league innings last season with the Cubs and Tigers, and he will likely begin the season at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Daniel Norris: Cut loose by Cincinnati
The Reds released Norris on Monday.
Norris had been in camp as a non-roster invitee and has been cut loose after posting a 6.75 ERA and 5:7 K:BB over 6.2 innings. The veteran southpaw will look to catch on elsewhere, presumably on a minor-league deal.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Daniel Norris: Gets spring invite from Cincy
The Reds signed Norris on Wednesday to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to MLB spring training.
Norris split time between the Cubs and the Tigers during the 2022 season, logging a 5.22 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 66:29 K:BB across 58.2 innings over 41 appearances at the MLB level. He should have a shot at claiming a spot in the Reds' Opening Day bullpen with a strong showing in the Cactus League, but even if he breaks camp with the big club, he'll most likely be ticketed for a low-leverage role....

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Earns first 2022 win
Norris (1-4) tossed two scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Wednesday against the Royals. He allowed one hit and struck out one.
Matt Manning was scratched right before his scheduled start due to arm fatigue and tendinitis, so the Tigers made it a bullpen game. That allowed Norris to swoop in for his first win of the season and just his third since the beginning of last year. The lefty now has a 5.53 ERA, and he's not much of a fantasy factor in his current relief role.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Daniel Norris: Transitioning back to relief
Norris is moving to the Tigers bullpen, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Norris, 29, has a 3.27 ERA in 11 innings as a starter and a 6.28 ERA in 28.2 innings as a reliever, but his -2.0 K-BB% as a starter and 18.9 K-BB% as a reliever are more indicative of what to expect going forward. Eduardo Rodriguez (personal) is joining the rotation Sunday and the Tigers can work with a four-man rotation through the end of the month. Garrett Hill is also moving to the bullpen and Bryan Garcia is a candidate to take the ball the next time the Tigers need a fifth starter.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Daniel Norris: Good start spoiled by bullpen
Norris allowed just one run on four hits across five innings but did not factor into the decision Wednesday against the Guardians. He walked two and struck out four.
Norris arguably had his best outing of the year, going a season-high five innings and putting the Tigers in a position to win. The lefty left the game with his team up 3-1, but the bullpen imploded to allow seven runs in three innings, and Cleveland prevailed 8-4. Norris still has a high 5.45 ERA, though he's allowed just one run across 9.2 innings in his last two appearances. With Eduardo Rodriguez (personal) on track to return from the restricted list Sunday, Norris could get bumped from the rotation, but he might stick in a long-relief role.... See More ... See Less

Tigers' Daniel Norris: Starting Friday
Norris will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start Friday's game against the White Sox, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Norris mainly pitched out of the bullpen with the Cubs earlier in the season, but since getting released by Chicago and signing with Detroit, he's been building up as a starter at Toledo over the last few weeks. The southpaw will return to the majors ahead of Friday's series opener against the White Sox, and he'll likely have a chance to earn more than one start since several of Detroit's starters are dealing with injuries....

Norris (finger) was able to play catch off flat ground Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Norris has started up his throwing program after landing on the 15-day injured list just under a week ago with a left index finger strain. He doesn't look like he'll be in store for a long-term absence, though the Cubs may not have much urgency to rush him back. The lefty has been handling a low-leverage role out of the bullpen all season and has submitted a 7.24 ERA over his 24 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Daniel Norris: Out with finger injury
The Cubs placed Norris on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a left index finger strain, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Right-hander Adrian Sampson was promoted from Triple-A Iowa to replace Norris on the 26-man active roster and serve as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen. Norris likely came away with the injury at some point during his appearance in Wednesday's 14-5 win over the Pirates, when he served up four runs -- all unearned -- on one hit and one walk over an inning of relief....

Cubs' Daniel Norris: Allows five runs Sunday
Norris allowed five runs on three hits and three walks across two innings of relief in Sunday's loss to the Yankees. He struck out five.
Norris struck out a season-high five batters, but a pair of home runs turned it into an ugly outing overall. The lefty has had plenty of those this year, as he's now saddled with a 6.75 ERA across 24 innings of work. He'll remain a low-leverage option who doesn't have much fantasy appeal.... See More ...
