The Phillies have released veteran righty Bud Norris, per a club announcement. He had been with the organization on a minor-league deal.
Norris, 35, sat out the 2019 season after failing to receive an offer to his liking. He was effective in 2018, so it stood to reason he had a realistic shot at earning a job with the Phils. Norris allowed four earned runs in the four Grapefruit League frames he threw this spring.
