Bud Norris Sidelined With Biceps Tendinitis And Bursitis

That's the word from Alyson Footer. Norris left his most recent outing last Sunday complaining of shoulder soreness, and after meeting with a specialist, he's received the aforementioned diagnosis. It's a tough break for the Astros; not because Norris is a key cog to their success, but because he's a 25 year old starting pitcher with 108 strikeouts in 99.1 Major League innings, and so the organization doesn't want to see any delays to his development. On a team with precious few talented young players, Norris and his mid-90s fastball offer some level of hope for the future.

Brian Moehler will fill in for Norris for as long as he's out. Moehler has six walks and six strikeouts over 12 relief appearances on the year .
