Astros | Skipper hoping Bud Norris can work in ASG

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter said Tuesday, July 9, will likely be SP Bud Norris' last start before the All-Star break. He believes Norris is a candidate to be an alternate for the American League All-Star squad, and Porter is hoping to keep Norris fresh should the opportunity arise. "We feel like he's pitched well enough to be an All-Star," Porter said. "If it just so happened that he is selected as one of those reserves, we want him to be well-rested and be able to go in and pitch in the All-Star Game."
