Norris needs a really good start. I don’t think that it would be an overstatement, all things considered, to say this is the most important start to date in a Tigers uniform for him.

Had a rough fourth, but 10 Ks through 3.2 IP is encouraging.

Only threw 41 pitches through 3 with 9Ks and a BB, which is absurd.

I was going to post that future Tiger Casey Mize has a surprising good-looking slider to go with that nasty cutter before he was hit in the forearm with an aluminum bat line drive.  Still looking good now and I think the jinx is safe ...

Yeah those first three innings sound insane. Curious to hear about his stuff tonight, because it sounds sick.

No doubt. 36 Ks in 21.1 IP in A ball for his career now. Gotta work on the control though with 14 BB.

The luster has worn off on Norris. 

he seems to be more under control tonight, which is good, but his fast ball still isn't breaking 90. OTOH, he still has a lot of swing and miss both on the high FB and the slider. Pitch count is high, but you just can't worry about that at this point in a pitcher's development and I think any team that does that is making a mistake. Just let the guy learn to get outs consistently. 

think about all the wasted energy for all those years trying to cut Verlander's pitch counts. Screw them - he'll be going to the Hall of Fame high pitch counts and all.

Considering that expecting him to turn into Sandy Koufax in two weeks was unrealistic, that was a reasonable performance for Norris.
