Tigers | Daniel Norris starting Sunday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:47:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris will start against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Norris made five starts for the Toronto Blue Jays this season and returned a 3.86 ERA, but he proved he wasn't ready for the big leagues with a 5.00 FIP and a 1.50 WHIP. He is worth considering for a speculative add in deep mixed leagues, but he stands as a risky start Sunday, especially for FantasyScore owners.

Tigers | Tigers get Daniel Norris

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:02:17 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP David Price was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, July 30, in exchange for Ps Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt.

Fantasy Tip: With Price gone, Norris is the likely candidate to enter the Tigers' rotation. Norris, a left-hander, has intriguing stuff and went 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in five starts (23 1/3 innings) for the Blue Jays earlier this year. He should be immediately added in at least AL-only leagues to get the jump on your league mates if he indeed enters the Detroit rotation.

Blue Jays | David Price acquired by Toronto

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:42:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP David Price is involved in a deal the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to. SP Daniel Norris is part of the package headed to Detroit. The deal has been agreed upon, but it's unknown where the stage of the medicals are.

Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) may take a small hit with the move to the hitter's park in Toronto. However, he remains a surefire SP1 on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Daniel Norris close to returning?

Fri, 22 May 2015 10:48:12 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris is close to being recalled to the major leagues. He struck out nine with Class AAA Buffalo in his innings in his third start for them while allowing three runs and five hits while walking three, and he'll pitch again Friday, May 22. Manager John Gibbons said the Blue Jays are looking to bring him back.

Fantasy Tip: Norris had a 3.86 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in five starts for the Jays before being sent down this year. The most likely scenario is that he'd replace Marco Estrada in the rotation. Check to see if Norris was dropped in deep mixed and AL-only leagues and scoop him up if he's available. You'll want to wait at least a start or two before trusting him at FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Daniel Norris optioned to Class AAA

Fri, 01 May 2015 12:37:02 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris was demoted to Triple-A Buffalo Friday, May 1. It is expected to be temporary, and an opportunity for Norris to reset and work on his consistency to return to the Blue Jays better equipped for the major league level.

Fantasy Tip: Norris is worth stashing in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, but in the majority of formats he can be dropped. He'll hold no FantasyScore value until he returns. Check back for updates on his progress with Buffalo and a potential recall date.

Blue Jays | Daniel Norris is fine

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 13:30:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris (arm) underwent tests that "checked out fine" after complaining of a "dead-arm phase," according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is 1-1 with a 6.08 ERA and 1.58 WHIP and 10 strikeouts in 13 1/3 innings for the Blue Jays so far. He was an early-season sensation coming of spring training, but the luster has worn off in the early going. Avoid him at FantasyScore for now until he works out his issues.

Blue Jays | Daniel Norris goes 5-plus in debut

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 18:27:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris went 5 2/3 IP, while allowing six hits, three earned runs, and two walks with five strikeouts Thursday, April 9, against the New York Yankees. It was Norris' second career major league start.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) took a shutout into the fifth inning. Norris' next start is expected to come at home Tuesday, April 14, against the Tampa Bay Rays. If his price remains low, Norris will be an excellent option on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Daniel Norris likely to slot third

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 19:13:39 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris will be part of the team's rotation, although the club has declined to give an exact order of its starting pitchers. Norris will be part of a staff which includes SPs Mark Buehrle, R.A. Dickey, Drew Hutchison and Aaron Sanchez. The expectation is that Norris will work as the team's No. 3 starter to get a crack at the lefty-heavy lineup of the New York Yankees in the first week.

Fantasy Tip: Norris is going to be a popular addition in FantasyScore at just $3,000 (or 6.0% of cap). It won't take much to exceed salary expectations, and his inclusion on your daily roster will help save a ton of salary to spread across your other spots.

Blue Jays | Daniel Norris wins fifth rotation spot

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 12:16:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris was officially named the fifth starter when the team finalized its roster on Tuesday, March 31.

Fantasy Tip: Norris is the feel-good story of Blue Jays camp, having lived in a van in Florida while camp was going on. He may be worth a late-round flier in AL leagues, as it is likely he will keep the job barring a slump to start the year.

Blue Jays | Daniel Norris intros new changeup

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 12:39:08 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris added a new sinking changeup to his repertoire during his bullpen sessions this week, and he struck out Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones with the pitch twice Wednesday, March 25.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is battling for a rotation spot and appears likely to break camp with a starting gig. He has high-end strikeout potential and warrants attention as a late-round flier in the majority of formats. However, his 22 2/3 innings with Triple-A Buffalo and his 6 2/3 with Toronto last season are his only experience above Class AA, so he is extremely green. At his price, he'll make an excellent FantasyScore play, too.
