Houston Astros SP Bud Norris (back) said Wednesday, May 22, that he does not expect to miss his next scheduled start despite leaving his past two outings due to lower back spasms. "I really don't want to (miss the next start). I think the prevention process of taking care of it now and getting me out of the game will help," Norris said.
Fantasy Tip: Norris has left each of his past two starts early. It might be a good idea to reserve him in all fantasy formats until he can make it through one full outing without any setbacks or disruptions.

Houston Astros SP Bud Norris (back) was lifted from his start Tuesday, May 21, against the Kansas City Royals due to tightness in his back.

Houston Astros SP Bud Norris (back) will start against the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, May 21, after originally being scheduled to start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, May 19.

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros SP Bud Norris (back) remained sore Tuesday, May 14, and his status for his next scheduled start is uncertain. "It's pretty sore still," Norris said. "But (the trainers) said the next couple of days it will be painful." Manager Bo Porter said Norris is day to day, but the pitcher will undergo treatment over the next few days.
Fantasy Tip: Norris' status for Sunday against the Pittsburgh Pirates appears to be in some jeopardy, so reserve him in daily fantasy formats in favor of a healthier alternative. It doesn't sound like an injury which will land him on the 15-day disabled list at this time.

Houston Astros SP Bud Norris (back) left the team's game Monday, May 13, after suffering back spasms throwing warm-up pitches in the sixth inning.

The Houston Astros would likely listen to trade offers for SPs Bud Norris and Lucas Harrell this summer, even though they are the team's two most reliable pitchers so far. Executives would almost all prefer trading for Harrell over Norris, though, mainly because he won't be a free agent until 2018. Scouts are concerned that Norris is still a two-pitch pitcher, too.

Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said the team is not planning on trading SP Bud Norris. "Bud's a critical part of our team," Luhnow said. "He's always going to be rumored to be moved, and that's unfortunate for him and unfortunate for us, but there's nothing active happening right now. There hasn't been in a long time and we're not planning on moving Bud. He's an important part of our team right now."
