Orioles Injury Update: Bud Norris optimistic about starting Friday

By on 6/22/2014 01:30:00 PM

The Baltimore Orioles defeated the New York Yankees on Saturday by the score of 6-1. The win improved the Orioles to 38-35, just two and a half games behind the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League East. The Orioles got home runs by Adam Jones, Steve Pearce and J.J. Hardy. Bud Norris got the win, allowing only a run and three hits, while striking out four, in five innings. There was some concern with Norris, who left the game early due to a right groin issue. 

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, tweeted the following update on Norris.
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.

Norris, in his sixth Major League season, is 7-5 with a 3.62 ERA in 14 starts this season. He went a combined 10-12 with a 4.18 ERA last year with the Astros and Orioles. Norris has a career record of 45-54 with a 4.29 ERA.
