As long as he stays healthy and continues to build up his arm strength, we should start to see results IMO. Orioles fans will see him this year. I'm assuming his next start will be tomorrow.
Kind of difficult to disagree with this statement. I agree that Yoon being the fifth starter would not have been the way to go and as far as fifth starters go, Norris has not been as bad as some were certain he would be. Yoon did not get mega money because he wasn't worthy of it. That said he becomes a quality fifth starter this year or next then the Orioles made a fine signing.
