Cincinnati Reds Sign Nine-Year Veteran Left-Handed Pitcher

The Cincinnati Reds add another left-handed arm.

The Reds have signed pitcher Daniel Norris to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Norris, a former starting pitcher, has not found much success since moving to the bullpen, even seeing his velocity decrease.

The twenty-nine-year-old split time between the Chicago Cubs and Detroit Tigers last season, compiling a 5.22 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, with 66 strikeouts across 58.2 innings and 41 appearances.

He has a good chance of cracking a spot in the Reds' Opening Day bullpen with a strong showing in spring training.

For his career, spanning nine seasons, Norris holds a 4.71 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 534 strikeouts over 569.2 innings of work.

He is a former second-round pick by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2011 MLB Draft.
