Good news for you fans who see Bud Norris as the ABSOLUTE LAST STRAW FOR ASTROS FANDOM UNTIL 2019, AT THE VERY EARLIEST.
Jeff Luhnow said yesterday:
“Right now, we’re not having any discussions with teams about Bud
Norris. He’s projected to
be one of our starters. We’ve had a good run with him and we’re going to
continue to have a good run with him.”
We also see in this piece that Chris Carter will rotate around 1B/LF/DH to get a "full season's worth of at-bats."
