Tim Norton Update: Throwing bullpens and feeling fine

By

Via Donnie Collins, VP of Baseball Ops Mark Newman said right-handed reliever Tim Norton is currently “throwing bullpens and feeling fine” following a shoulder injury that ended his season in June. The 28-year-old was brilliant — 46 K and 8 BB in 30 IP — and on the verge of a call-up before suffering his latest shoulder ailment. It was his injury that prompted the Yankees to pick up Cory Wade off the scrap heap. Hopefully Norton stays on the field and continues to make noise this year, but his career-long injury issues leave me pessimistic.

    Here’s to wishing he stays healthy. Doubtful, but certainly interesting. Would be another one of those good problems to have.

  2. T-Dubs says:

    Always wish well upon my UConn boys.

    I hope Selig lets him succeed.

    Pump him full of stem cells.

    I imagine you mean he is feeling “FINE”.

    At this rate, with a healthy Norton, Joba, Aardsma, and with DRob, Mo, Soriano and Logan, the starters would only have to go 3 innings.

    But then each of the six starters could go every 3rd day. I’d love to see some team try that.
