Profile: Norris won 15 games back in 2014 with the Orioles but has not been effective since then on four separate teams. Over the past two seasons, he’s had a reasonable number of strikeouts (7.9 per nine innings) but his walks (3.7 per nine) and home runs (1.3 per nine) have brought down his production. Whether it is luck or not, he has gotten hit around, as seen by his .321 batting average on balls in play. Each of the four teams have tried him in the bullpen, and he’s been unsuccessful in that role also (6.59 ERA and 4.12 FIP in 2015, 3.74 ERA and 4.99 FIP in 2016). The 31-year-old went on the DL with a strained back in mid-August. It is a wait-and-see situation with him until he shows he can reliably contribute with the Angels in 2017. (Jeff Zimmerman)

The Quick Opinion: Norris will get another opportunity, this time with the Angels, but he hasn't been a productive pitcher for a couple of seasons.
