The Guardians designated reliever Daniel Norris for assignment this afternoon, per the team’s transaction log at MLB.com. The move created an active roster spot for the recall of Hunter Gaddis from Triple-A. Cleveland’s 40-man roster count drops to 39.
Norris spent a day on the MLB roster this time around. Cleveland selected his contract yesterday, his third separate stint of the season. Norris was pressed into long relief when the Twins knocked Xzavion Curry from the game early. The southpaw pitched two innings, allowing four runs on a pair of homers.
The 30-year-old has allowed 11 runs (eight earned) in 12 2/3 innings with Cleveland. He has a 5.60 ERA in 53 Triple-A frames on the season. It seems likely Norris will again clear waivers and could explore free agency, as he did a couple weeks ago before re-signing with the Guards on a new minor league pact.
