The Brewers have reportedly acquired LHP Daniel Norris from the Tigers.
Norris is expected to serve as a lefty specialist for Milwaukee. The southpaw has an ugly 5.89 ERA for the season, though he has predictably pitched better against lefties.
Detroit Tigers left-hander Daniel Norris tossed a scoreless 11th inning to preserve a 6-5 win over the Twins on Tuesday. He did not allow a base runner in the frame and needed just six pitches to put the Twins away.
Norris was credited with the save, the first of his career. The veteran lefty now has a 1-3 record, 5.89 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 40 strikeouts over 36 2/3 innings of work.
Daniel Norris will have enough left in the tank after pitching emergency innings in Friday's game against the Indians to "follow" Michael Fulmer's start on Sunday.
Norris was called on to relieve Ivan Nova with no warmup on Friday after Nova gave up eight runs through four innings to the Indians, and Norris pitched 1 and 2/3 innings without allowing a run. Norris now has a 3.38 ERA and 1.50 WHIP through 5+ innings.
Detroit Tigers left-hander Daniel Norris allowed two runs over 1 2/3 innings of work in a 4-0 loss to the Reds on Sunday.
Norris started the second game of the two teams' doubleheader. The veteran southpaw was making his first appearance of 2020 after spending the first week of the season on the COVID-19 IL. Norris is not worth pursuing in fantasy leagues.
Daniel Norris (COVID-19) has been cleared to rejoin the Tigers.
Norris tested positive earlier this month but is good to go. He'll work out with the team on Tuesday but obviously won't be ready for a full workload to begin the season.
