Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris was pounded for nine runs, six hits and three walks with just two strikeouts while recording just seven outs Tuesday, April 21, against the Toronto Blue Jays. The nine runs allowed matched a career high.
Fantasy Tip: Norris went 4-0 with a 1.78 ERA against Toronto last season, but he is 0-2 with a 28.70 ERA this season against them. FantasyScore players, this just proves that trends and splits are not foolproof. Avoid Norris at $3,800 (or 7.6% of cap) until he gets untracked and starts pitching to his capabilities.

Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris has a 4-0 record with a 2.36 ERA through 34 1/3 innings over six starts against the Toronto Blue Jays. Norris is starting against Toronto Friday, April 10.
Fantasy Tip: While Norris' ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) success against Toronto is promising for daily players, it doesn't mean he is a slam-dunk start in daily contests Friday. The Blue Jays averaged five runs per game through their opening series of the season and have a potent middle of the order. Still, at his price tag, Norris is worth considering as your No. 2 arm for FantasyScore contests.
