Bud Norris exits start with right groin tightness
Orioles starter Bud Norris left Saturday afternoon’s outing while warming up prior to the sixth inning due to right groin tightness, MLB.com’s Brittany Ghiroli reports.
Norris held the Yankees to one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings. Manager Buck Showalter brought in reliever Ryan Webb to begin the sixth inning. On the season, Norris has a 3.62 ERA with a 60/28 K/BB ratio in 87 innings.
The Orioles recently sent down Kevin Gausman, but they plan to use him and Norris in both games in Friday’s double-header against the Rays. The O’s will need to find someone else to replace Norris if he needs to miss a start or go on the disabled list.
