Norris, Towles cut

The Astros made two roster moves Friday morning, sending right-hander Bud Norris and catcher J.R. Towles to Minor League camp.

Norris will join the Round Rock rotation, but he will be the first pitcher considered if a need arises in either the rotation or the bullpen in Houston.

Towles was edged out when the club signed Pudge Rodriguez, which moved Humberto Quintero to a backup role.

More in this later.

  1. I hope the Towles experiment is over. Any word whether Castro will be ready for the 2010/11 season (presumably after Pudge is gone)?
