Today the Los Angeles Dodgers released pitcher Bud Norris. The Dodgers had recruited Norris from the Atlanta Braves in late June to replace Clayton Kershaw, who at the time was placed in the disabled list, due to a herniated disc.

On July 31, when the Dodgers played against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Norris was pulled from the game during the first inning due to back muscle tightness and it was downhill ever since.

Norris’ career with the Dodgers didn’t last long, and he didn’t do too much to make an impression. He went 3-3 with a 6.54 ERA in 13 games.

Though he began his time in Los Angeles as a starting pitcher, he made the move to the bullpen is probably what ended up hurting him. Our bullpen has been phenomenal this season, and with guys like Grant Dayton, Joe Blanton, and possibly Julio Urias, there isn’t much a position for him as a reliever. Hopefully he will be picked up by another organization because at 31 years old, he still has a lot of baseball left in him!

  1. Mary, if you wish to be a respected author, you need to work on your proof reading and your grammar.   Here are 2 examples along with corrections:

    “Though he began his time in Los Angeles as a starting pitcher, he made the move to the bullpen is probably what ended up hurting him.”

    ALTHOUGH HE BEGAN HIS TIME IN LOS ANGELES AS A STARTING PITCHER, THE MOVE TO THE BULLPEN IS PROBABLY WHAT ENDED UP HURTING HIM.

    “Our bullpen has been phenomenal this season, and with guys like Grant Dayton, Joe Blanton, and possibly Julio Urias, there isn’t much a position for him as a reliever.”

    OUR BULLPEN HAS BEEN PHENOMENAL THIS SEASON, AND WITH GUYS LIKE GRANT DAYTON, JOE BLANTON, AND POSSIBLY JULIO URIAS, THERE ISN’T MUCH OF A POSITION FOR HIM AS A RELIEVER.
