On Saturday, he was released.

Norris has largely struggled this season, pitching to a 4-7 record with a 6.79 ERA in 11 starts before being moved to the bullpen. After his demotion, he went 0-2 with a blown save and an 8.44 ERA.

Norris was put on the disabled list in May with an illness, lost 14 pounds, and never really regained his strength to bounce back to his 2014 form.
