Astros | Bud Norris scratched

Houston Astros SP Bud Norris was scratched from his start against the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, July 30, in the midst of trade rumors surrounding him. Three teams have been interested in Norris, including the Orioles, but no deal is imminent at this time. Norris is 6-9 with a 3.93 ERA in 21 starts this season. However, he's 0-2 with an 8.47 ERA in his last three starts. SP Lucas Harrell will make the start in Norris' absence.

Fantasy Tip: If Norris is dealt, Harrell will likely slide back into the rotation permanently, making him a possible target for pitching-hungry deep mixed league teams once again. He should be added in NL formats.
