Astros' Norris to miss start

Success - Article sent! close

MILWAUKEE -- Houston Astros right-hander Bud Norris will skip his next scheduled start because of biceps tendinitis.

The team announced before its game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday that Norris will miss his start Saturday in Cincinnati. Norris had complained to Astros head trainer Nate Lucero that his right shoulder was sore.

Norris (2-5, 6.80) is expected to return to Houston for an examination by Dr. David Lintner, and it's unclear how long he'll be out. No starter has been announced in his place.
