Cincinnati Reds Release Veteran Pitcher After One Month Stint With Team

Left-handed pitcher Daniel Norris, who split time between the Chicago Cubs and Detroit Tigers last season, has been released by the Cincinnati Reds after a non-roster invitee stint in camp where he posted a 6.75 ERA and 5 strikeouts over 6.2 innings.
The 29-year-old southpaw had signed a minor-league contract with the Reds last month but was not expected to make the opening roster.

Throughout his nine-season career, Norris has accumulated a 4.71 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 534 strikeouts over 569.2 innings, but has struggled to find consistency in his performance, including a decrease in velocity since moving to the bullpen.
He was a second-round pick by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2011 MLB Draft and will now look to join another team, presumably on a minor-league deal. Photo Credit: Sam Greene/The Enquirer / USA TODAY NETWORK
