Dodgers | Bud Norris shines against Rays

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:16:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris worked 6 1/3 scoreless innings against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, July 26. He allowed two hits, walked two and struck out six to improve to 3-2 with the club.

Fantasy Tip: After taking the loss in an impromptu relief appearance on July 22, Norris bounced back with his best outing since joining the Dodgers. The bullpen made it interesting, but they held on for a 3-2 win. Norris is worth owning in NL-only setups and has spot start potential in deeper mixed leagues as well.

Dodgers | Bud Norris expected to start Tuesday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 00:13:08 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris is still expected to make his next scheduled start on Tuesday, July 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays despite being used in relief on Friday, July 22, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Norris took the L, his second second in three days, and hasn't pitched particularly well since his shutdown debut with the club on July 1. The Rays could be a good match-up, though, so he has some appeal in deeper leagues this Tuesday.

Dodgers | Bud Norris struggles

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:53:03 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris gave up six runs on seven hits in five-plus innings Wednesday, July 20, in an 8-1 loss to the Washington Nationals. Norris also allowed three home runs in the loss.

Fantasy Tip: This is not what the Dodgers want to see from their pitching staff, what with injuries to Hyun-Jin Ryu and Clayton Kershaw. The Nationals have a pretty potent hitting corps, but this was a bad outing for Norris. Keep him off of regular duty for the time being.

Dodgers | Bud Norris moved up to Wednesday

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 20:42:43 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris was moved up a day in the rotation and he will start Wednesday, July 20, against the Washington Nationals. The move was due to the setback to SP Clayton Kershaw (back).

Fantasy Tip: Norris catches a slight break, as he will face Gio Gonzalez rather than Stephen Strasburg. It's a trade-off, however, as he now pitches at night where he is 4-7 with a 4.76 ERA in 21 appearances (11 starts) rather than during the day where he is 1-0 with a 1.65 ERA in four appearances (two starts). He remains nothing more than a deeper NL-only fantasy option.

Dodgers | Julio Urias to start Thursday

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:04:13 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias will be recalled from Class AAA Oklahoma City in order to start against the Washington Nationals Thursday, July 21. SP Bud Norris will be the starting pitcher against the Nationals Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Urias has had some success during his time with the Dodgers this season but will enter the game with a 4.95 ERA. He will be facing a tough Nationals team but should still be considered in daily fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed leagues. Norris has won two of his three starts with the Dodgers and has allowed seven runs in those games. He can be considered a sleeper option in daily leagues.

Dodgers | Bud Norris finally beats D-backs

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 00:20:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris allowed four runs on eight hits in five innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, July 15, to earn the win. He entered the game 0-7 against Arizona in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Not only was Norris 0-7 against the Snakes, but he carried a 13.92 ERA as well. While he was anything but dominant on Friday, Norris was buoyed by a season-high 18 hits from the Dodgers, and he's 2-0 since joining the club. He carries some deep mixed league appeal.

Diamondbacks | Brandon Drury not playing Friday

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 13:41:10 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Brandon Drury is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 15, against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris. OF Yasmany Tomas has shifted over to right field, and C Chris Herrmann is in left.

Fantasy Tip: The club would like to get Herrmann some playing time, as he is hitting .291-6-28 with five doubles and four triples. His .511 slugging mark is quite strong. Herrmann merits consideration in DFS leagues, but he does not have a regular spot yet to call his own.

Dodgers | LAD set post-break rotation

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 20:03:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris, SP Brandon McCarthy and SP Kenta Maeda will start the first three games after the All-Star break against the Arizona Diamondbacks, and SP Scott Kazmir and SP Hyun-Jin Ryu will start the next two games against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Clayton Kershaw is expected to be back soon, but the Dodgers will make at least one turn through the rotation without their ace.

Dodgers | Bud Norris blanks Rockies

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 23:08:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris allowed just two hits and one walk in six scoreless innings against the Colorado Rockies on Friday, July 1. He also struck out eight in his Dodgers debut.

Fantasy Tip: Norris did his best Clayton Kershaw impression on Friday, shutting down a potent Rockies lineup and endearing himself to the Dodgers faithful. It's actually the continuation of what Norris was doing in Atlanta, and he now hasn't allowed a run in 14 2/3 innings. Despite his work of late, Norris' long history of mediocrity suggests this dominance will be short lived, meaning he's primarily NL-only fodder with a smidgen of appeal in deeper mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Bud Norris to make L.A. debut Friday

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 14:46:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris will make his debut with the Dodgers against the Colorado Rockies Friday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: He'll take Clayton Kershaw's (back) place in the rotation for now. Norris has always been a very mediocre pitcher, but he had a great June with Atlanta (4-1, 2.15 ERA, .200 opponent's average). The trade to L.A. puts him with a contending team, but it doesn't do much to boost his fantasy value otherwise. Continue to view him as more of a matchup play in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, and his first one with the Dodgers is risky against the Rockies.
