Norris looks to build on progress made in '11

Astros starting pitcher Bud Norris certainly made some strides in his second full season in the Major Leagues in 2011, setting career highs for innings pitched, starts and strikeouts while lowering his ERA by more than one run per game.

The numbers were an improvement, but still not where Norris wanted them to be at the end of this season, nor where the Astros needed them to be. He finished 2011 with a 3.77 ERA in 31 starts, 176 strikeouts and a 6-11 record that was the result of inconsistency and poor run support.

The issue of run support -- the Astros lost four of Norris' starts last season by a 1-0 score -- is out of the 26-year-old's hands, but gaining more consistency each time he takes the mound is a primary goal for Norris when Spring Training begins in a month.
