Orioles Norris heads to Orioles in Deadline deal

Quote:
The Orioles and Astros worked out a deal right before the non-waiver Trade Deadline on Wednesday that sent Houston starting pitcher Bud Norris to Baltimore in exchange for outfielder L.J. Hoes, left-hander Josh Hader and a Competitive Balance Draft pick

"I'm excited for the opportunity," Norris told MLB.com. "I'm very thankful for Houston and the organization for everything they've done for me and given to me. ... As I look forward, I'm excited to play in Baltimore. They've got a great city and a great, young team. They play together and play very hard. I'm excited to go to the postseason and make a run at something."

Hoes, who MLB.com ranked as the seventh-best O's prospect, was scheduled to start in left field for the Orioles (against the Astros) on Wednesday, has appeared in three big league games over the last two seasons.

Norris, 28, was 6-9 with a 3.93 ERA in 21 starts for the Astros. He was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday in Baltimore, only adding to speculation a trade was in the works. At a $3 million annual salary, Norris was the Astros' highest-paid player. He's under club control for two more years beyond 2013.
