Norris shut down; Lopez to start

Conflicting reports from the Tweeters on Bud Norris, who has been shut down.

Let's check in with Brian McTaggart, who was first:
Bud Norris shut down with arm fatigue

And then Alyson Footer, seven minutes later:
Bud Norris done for year..not injured. Just playing it safe. Has pitched more innings than ever and club is erring on side of caution.

A minute later we read that Wilton Lopez will get the start in Philadelphia next week. But this has to be the smartest move the Astros have made all year.
