Norris to Disabled List and other roster moved
The Baltimore Orioles have placed Bud Norris on the 15-day disabled list and recalled Evan Meek. The Orioles have also brought up Kevin Gausman to pitch as the 26th man because they are playing a double header.
The Orioles hoped Norris would avoid the disabled list but his groin injury will force him to miss a couple of starts. Norris has been the Orioles best starter this season so this is a big loss. Usually groin injuries are not serious and are quick to recover from.
Here is the Orioles press release.
