The Baltimore Orioles have acquired Bud Norris from the Houston Astros, just an hour before the MLB trade deadline.
In the deal, Norris will be going to Baltimore, while minor league outfielder L.J. Hoes, prospect Josh Hader and a draft pick will be heading back to Houston, according to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.
Norris, 28, is 6-9 with a 3.93 ERA this season, his fifth with the Astros. The hard-throwing right-hander figures to bolster an Orioles rotation that entered play Wednesday with a 4.64 ERA.
Hoes, 23, is batting .304 in 99 games at Triple-A Norfolk this season.
