Bud Norris Scratched From Tuesday’s Start for Astros, Rumored to Be Traded Before Deadline

BALTIMORE — Houston Astros pitcher Bud Norris has been scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday night against the Baltimore Orioles.

The team declined to immediately provide a reason for the move, but the right-hander has been the topic of trade speculation. A team official said Norris had not been dealt yet.

The non-waiver trade deadline is Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Lucas Harrell replaced Norris as Houston’s starting pitcher.

Norris is 6-9 with a 3.93 ERA in 21 starts with Houston. His six wins are tops on the club and his $3 million salary is the highest on the rebuilding Astros, a major league-worst 35-69 at the start of the day.
