Norris was designated for assignment by the Orioles on July 31 and then subsequently released nine days later. He posted a cool 3.65 ERA (106 ERA+) in 28 starts last season for Baltimore but stumbled to a 7.06 ERA in 11 starts and seven relief appearances this season. The 30-year-old right-hander will try to rebuild some value in San Diego before he heads into the free agent market this winter. Norris was making $8.8 million in his final year of salary arbitration. Baltimore is still on the hook for around $2.85 million of that.
