Our own Evan Petzold reported earlier today that Norris left Saturday afternoon's game with tightness in his right groin. Although Norris has dealt with some left groin issues in the past, it's the first time he's experienced the same problem in his right groin.
Roch Kubatko, who covers the Orioles for MASNsports.com, tweeted the following update on Norris.
Norris said groin still a little sore. Will have better idea tomorrow whether he can make Friday start. Fairly optimistic.If Norris cannot go, the Orioles could call someone up from the minors, move Miguel Gonzalez up a day, or have a long reliever come in and spot start. But Norris feels as though he'll be ok about making his next scheduled start.
