Braves agree to terms with pitcher Bud Norris

The Atlanta Braves have agreed to terms with right-handed starting pitcher Bud Norris on a one-year Major League contract for the 2016 season. Financial terms were not announced.

"We are excited to agree to terms with Bud Norris," Braves general manager John Coppolella said. "We feel that he will be a valuable part of our starting rotation in 2016."

Norris, 30, has appeared in 196 games (166 starts) over a seven-year Major League career, compiling a 56-68 record and a 4.44 ERA in 988.2 career innings with Houston, Baltimore and San Diego. The right-hander split the 2015 season between the Orioles and Padres, tallying three wins and posting a 6.72 ERA (62 ER/83.0 IP) over 38 games (11 starts).

Norris collected a career-best 15 victories in 2014, going 15-8 with a 3.65 ERA over 28 starts with Baltimore. He went 8-2 and established a single-season ballpark record at Oriole Park at Camden Yards (min. 10 starts) by posting a 2.44 ERA (22 ER/81.0 IP) in 13 starts at home.

He made the only two postseason appearances of his career in 2014 and tossed 6.1 scoreless frames in his playoff debut, earning the series-clinching win against Detroit in the ALDS. He followed with a no-decision against Kansas City in the ALCS after allowing four runs in 4.1 innings.

A native of Greenbrae, Calif., Norris was originally selected by the Houston Astros in the sixth round of the 2006 June free-agent draft out of California Polytechnic State University.
